Canon Middle East adds two new projectors to its XEED installation range

- PRESS RELEASE
Canon Middle East, world specialist in imaging solutions, has announced it is extending its XEED range of installation projectors with the launch of the SX6000 and the WX6000.
The new models are designed to suit a broad range of corporate, exhibition and education environments, where a permanently installed high brightness projector is required to deliver outstanding image quality and vibrant true-to-life colours.
The SX6000 has native SXGA+ resolution (1400 x 1050 pixels) with a 4:3 aspect ratio, while the WX6000 offers WXGA+ resolution (1440 x 900 pixels) and has a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Outstanding image quality
Canon's XEED SX6000 and WX6000 benefit from an updated version of Canon's proprietary AISYS technology and a new LCOS display panel. In combination, the AISYS optical system and LCOS technology deliver improved brightness, image quality and colour purity. Canon's XEED models offer 'real colour brightness', which means that colours display at practically the same intensity as white.
Both projectors draw upon Canon's long history of lens development and will be compatible with a new Ultra Long Zoom lens (available from Q4 2012), in addition to Canon's existing lens line-up. The new lens has a 1.95x zoom, offering system integrators a range of throw distances between 7.6 and 15 metres for a standard 100" image. In addition, projection distances of up to 88 metres are possible, for a maximum diagonal image size of 600".
The lens has been designed to ensure minimal reduction in brightness, even over long throw distances. Canon's lenses also ensure that blurring, distortion, and chromatic aberration are virtually eliminated, maximising image quality.
Easy set-up and maintenance
The SX6000 and WX6000 have been designed to offer easy set-up and maintenance:
• Remote-controlled motorised zoom, focus and lens shift (with 0.5 pixel accuracy) means that the display can be altered from the position on the ground where the installer has the best view of the display, and means the projectors are suitable for use in single or multiple projector installations, such as 3D, stacking, blended systems and domes.
• 360 degree projection means that images can be projected from the floor, ceiling and walls to create a truly immersive experience, particularly suitable for creating unique displays at exhibitions, museums or visitor centres.
• Test patterns are now easily accessible via a one-touch button on the SX6000 and WX6000 device remotes to enable accurate setup, particularly where multiple units are involved.
• Both devices are compatible with a new wired remote control for use in environments where the device is out of infrared range, or where infrared technology needs to be switched off to protect the projectors from potential interference.
Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East, said, "The addition of the SX6000 and WX6000 to Canon's XEED installation range means that there is now a Canon solution for system integrators and end users looking for extra brightness to add impact to displays, or a projector that offers outstanding performance in larger venues. These features build on the success of our earlier XEED models, which are now becoming known and trusted within the industry for their peerless image quality and intuitive installation."
