Two of Canon's most recent additions to its multimedia projector selection, the XEED WUX10 and XEED SX80, offer quick and quiet operation for users in corporate, educational and specialised fields such as the medical industry.

Described as featuring "all the technology needed" for superior performance, the projector model's LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) panels reproduce fine details without common projector setbacks like the "lattice" or "rainbow" effects.

Canon further singles out the projectors' inclusion of its AISYS optical system, offering brightness levels of 3,200 lumens in the XEED WUX10 and 3,000 lumens in the SX80.

"Coupled with contrast ratios of 1000:1 and 900:1, both ensure projected images cut through ambient light to offer vivid colours and deep blacks," says a spokesperson, adding that the two models include a distortion-beating 1.5x powered zoom lens, with a 10:0 lens offset for easy set-up.

The XEED SX80 also lets users display images directly from USB drives and digital cameras, eliminating the need for a PC during presentations.

While the WUX10 projector has a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, the SX80 offers native SXGA+ resolution of 1400 x 1050 pixels. The WUX10 is also capable of Full HD video (1080p).
