Canon’s Realis WUX6000, an LCoS projector, is an installation model with a new image processing engine. The component enables multiple video and computer signals to be displayed with deep blacks and ‘virtually blur-free’ movement, the company says. There are also multiple modes to be used: 7 pre-set image modes, 9 colour adjustment modes and 10 advanced image adjustments.
The WUX6000 supports edge blending and has a picture-by-picture function. A separate model, the WUX6000 D, adds a DICOM Simulation mode; the WUX6000 D can show DICOM Sim images and sRGB colour images side by side. To aid installation a motorised lens shift is included. The Lens Position Memory feature enables users to store up to four lens position settings, including zoom, focus, lens shift, aspect ratio, screen colour (to compensate for non-white surfaces) and keystone. 360 deg projection is supported. The unit also features four-point keystone correction, to adjust each corner of the image independently.
For networking, the WUX6000 supports PJLink, Crestron and AMX systems.
Resolution is 1920 x 1200 and contrast ratio is 2,000:1. The projector uses a 340W lamp, providing 6,000 lumens of brightness and lasting 3,000 – 4,000 hours. Zoom and focus are powered. HDMI, DVI-I, component, USB, RS232 and RJ45 ports are featured, as well as a 5W speaker.
Five lenses are available, although none are provided with the WUX6000. Throw ratios range from 0.8:1 to 3.7-7.3:1, with image sizes of 40″ – 600″ (40″ – 300″ on the fixed zoom model).
Canon’s new flagship projector measures 380 x 430 x 170mm and weighs 8.5kg. It will be available in November, starting at $5,500 and $6,150 (WUX6000 D).
