XEED WUX5000: Canon Projected Big!

Canon introduces the latest member of its XEED projectors range: the WUX5000. It is distinguished by its high brightness of 5000 lumens, WUXGA resolution, and its compatibility with three Canon lenses: a standard zoom len, used on most of the usual facilities, a tele-zoom, for larger spaces and a ultra-wide fixed lens for rear projection applications. These optics broadcast images up to 15 meters wide and are capable of projecting a maximum distance of 48.5 m, without significant reduction of brightness, including the tele-zoom or ultra-wide fixed lens.

In addition to these three lens, the XEED WUX5000 projector uses technology to obtain an excellent optical quality. LCOS panels, combined with WUXGA resolution, produce seamless images without lattice effect or iridescent rainbow. The color matching technology allows it to project images similar to those of a calibrated sRGB screen.

The XEED WUX5000 combines high performance and practicality, with its motorized moving mechanism of the optical unit. This allows you to adjust horizontal and vertical images with an accuracy of 0.5 pixel, which is essential in facilities with multiple projectors and where the images olverlap(3D systems in particular). The settings can be made from the WUX5000 control panel, or with a remote control, allowing one person to adjust the projector from the ground. The XEED WUX5000 can project on the floor and the ceiling, enabling a 360 degree spread.

The Canon XEED WUX5000 will be available throughout Europe from the March 2012(at a price not given).
