Canon’s Dual Lamps are Reliable

The LX-MU700 projector was Canon’s newest product: it’s a dual-lamp DLP model with 1920 x 1200 resolution. It is designed for long-term and reliable projection; the dual lamps provide redundancy and can be used independently of each other, if required.

Each lamp is rated at 350W and lasts 2,000 – 3,000 hours. Brightness is 7,500 lumens. There are seven lenses that can be used with the projector, with throw ratios and zoom levels ranging from 0.75-8.26:1 and 1.25x – 1.65x. The projector can throw a 40″ – 500″ image from 0.62m – 91.54m (lens-dependent).

DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, 5 BNC and RJ45 ports are featured, as well as USB-B for control and mini-VGA out. Canon plans to launch the projector in April.

At the other end of the stand was the XEED 4K500ST (Canon Claims World’s Lightest DCI Projector), which was showing high-resolution content using Wings Engine RAW from AV Stumpfl of Austria.
