Digital imaging specialist, Canon, has revealed details of their first high-resolution installation projector with the pioneering LCOS technology, in anticipation of a March 2011 launch.

The REALiS WUX4000 Installation LCOS Projector is honed for use in conference centers, boardrooms, educational institutions, government offices and theme parks, offering widescreen images at higher-than-HD resolution - 1920 x 1200 - and an aspect ratio of 16:10 and high brightness level of 4000 lumens.

Its main selling point, however, is the use of the fourth-generation proprietary AISYS-enhanced LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) optical engine, anadvanced projection-display technology that delivers crisp, seamless images with intricate detail, high brightness, high contrast and accurate color.

Canon's Consumer Imaging Group general manager, Yuichi Ishizuka, said, "Canon's commitment to the ever-growing installation market is increased by the widescreen, high-definition, large-image display capabilities of the new REALiS WUX4000 Installation LCOS Projector."

"Customers will see the superb display performance that has come to be expected from the REALiS product line."

Further contributing to the display excellence of the new projector are the three optional high-resolution interchangeable lenses available for the unit. The 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.
