Teachers at a high school across the pond have revealed how they chose Canon's REALiS SX6 multimedia LCOS projectors for their high resolution, since lessons in computer-aided design necessitate "very bright and crisp" images to highlight vital details.

Explaining that his students are learning how to follow the standards used by drafting professionals worldwide, Andrew Cocagne from Michigan's Fenton High School emphasised the importance of including the necessary amount of detail in lessons: "This is especially true when we’re creating drawings that consist mainly of lines that are fairly thin.

"If you don’t have sufficient resolution those lines can look really jagged or they may not even look like lines at all. This is why Canon's REALiS SX6 multimedia LCOS projectors are essential for our classes."

With SXGA+ (1400x1050) native resolution, the projectors boast 3,500 lumens of brightness, a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and an Adobe RGB colour-match system. They use Canon's own AISYS-enhanced LCOS technology and 1.7x wide powered zoom lenses, providing a diagonal screen size range from 40 inches to 300 inches.

Dave Gallinat, the school's technology director, concluded that the machines' multiple ports are another advantage, enabling teachers to switch between various computers without needing to adjust the projectors.
