Canon is launching a new addition to its award-winning REALiS multimedia projector range in the form of the SX7 Mark II D.

The projector is made specifically for use in the medical field – providing medical staff with the opportunity to project digital X-rays, CAT scans and MRI scans. The projectors show the scans with high levels of accuracy and colour, which of course is essential when viewing such images.

Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager of Consumer Imaging Group at Canon in the US, explained, "In the medical-education field, the need to display images with accurate color reproduction and precise detail is mandatory.”

The projector comes complete with DICOM Simulation Mode – the DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine.

Other features include a Canon 1.7x Powered Zoom and Focus Lens, which makes for easy projector placement. A true digital connection is guaranteed with the inclusion of a DVI-I Terminal for high quality images and video.

The model also offers a quiet mode, which only produces 31db, making it perfect for use in hospitals. The device also supports both Adobe RGBand sRGB colour spaces
