From Canon's press release:
Ideal for use in a wide range of professional venues including conference centers, corporate boardrooms, educational institutions, houses of worship, medical facilities, government offices, museums, theme parks and photo studios, this new model delivers higher-than-HD-resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreen images with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and high brightness level of 4000 lumens.
The WUX4000 uses Canon’s latest fourth-generation proprietary AISYS-enhanced LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) optical engine, the advanced projection-display technology that delivers crisp, seamless images with intricate detail, high brightness, high contrast and accurate color. Additional key features include access to three new high-resolution interchangeable Canon projection lenses as well as motorized lens shift for installation flexibility.
Canon’s Exclusive AISYS Technology
Canon’s proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) technology maximizes the display capabilities of the LCOS panels used in all REALiS projectors. AISYS enhances LCOS by efficiently utilizing and equalizing light from the projector lamp. The result is smooth, high-brightness, high-resolution images free of the “screen door” and “rainbow” effects seen in other projection-display technologies.
Interchangeable Lenses Extend Versatility
Further contributing to the display excellence of the new REALiS projector, as well as to its installation convenience, are the three optional high-resolution interchangeable lenses available for the unit. These lenses – including a 1.5x Zoom, 0.8x Ultra Wide Angle single focal length, and 1.7x Long Focus Zoom – incorporate advanced low-distortion and high-resolution optical technologies originally developed for Canon’s EOS DSLR camera lenses. Engineered to minimize brightness loss, each lens is the same physical length, due to the use of advanced Canon aspherical elements. This uniformity of length can simplify shipment of assembled projector/lens units for rental/staging companies, and avoid lens-overhang issues when mounted inside projector-lift systems.
Motorized Lens Shift and Other Convenience Features
THe WUX4000 has a shifting lens for keystone correction to preserve high resolution. Electronic keystone correction used in consumer projectors cuts real resolution in half whenever it's set away from its defaults.
Additional installation convenience is provided by the projector’s motorized Lens Shift feature. This enables installers to overcome moderate projector-placement obstacles by shifting the lens itself to adjust the vertical and horizontal position of the projected image. (This is done using the projector’s control panel or remote control.) The projector can be ceiling-mounted with a plate or extension pole using either Canon’s mounting bracket or products from independent ceiling-mount companies. The projector can also be installed vertically or stacked.
Multimedia Device Compatibility
Industry-standard digital and analog terminals and connectors ensure the REALiS WUX4000 Installation LCOS Projector’s compatibility with a wide range of video and computer devices. Signal inputs include HDMI Version 1.3, DVI-D and analog PC terminals, two audio inputs, and one audio output for external amplification and speakers. A built-in five-watt speaker is also included. A convenient User Memory feature stores up to ten different setting combinations based on the content being shown. Five memory settings are for computer sources, such as DVI-D, analog PC, and HDMI (PC). The other five settings are for video sources, such as component and HDMI (video). A network-ready RJ-45 port allows for authorized users to manage and control multiple projectors from any PC on the network. An RS-232 serial connection allows for monitoring the projector locally through a third-party control system. A hand-held remote control enables users to control four WUX4000 projectors individually or simultaneously. Lens Shift and Gamma Control buttons are also included on the remote control.
Price, Availability and Warranty
The REALiS WUX4000 Installation LCOS Projector has a suggested list price of $8,999 and is scheduled to be available through authorized Canon dealers in March, 2011.
Help me help you top
I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
The biggest help is when you use any of these links to Adorama, Amazon, B&H, eBay, Ritz, Calumet and J&R and when you get anything. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places always have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.
If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.
