Canon adds new flagship projector to its leading installation range

Canon Middle East, a leader in imaging solutions, announces the launch of a new flagship install projector – the Canon XEED WUX6000 – offering advanced image quality, connectivity, durability and installation capabilities.

The XEED WUX6000 also provides enhanced energy-saving, producing bright and high resolution images while limiting power consumption to just 0.076W per lumen.

Canon has enhanced the image quality, installation capability and connectivity of the XEED WUX6000 by adopting a newly developed image engine and AISYS4.1 (Aspectual Illumination System) optical system. The addition of new LCOS panels also improves the appearance of projected images by offering increased luminance and reflectivity while improving energy savings.

The new LCOS panel has excellent burn-in resistance which makes it possible for the XEED WUX6000 to achieve continuous projection for up to 100 hours of the same image without the pattern of the image being burnt in to the panel, compared to a regular LCD panel which can suffer this issue after just two to three hours. This is particularly beneficial for exhibition-style installations, where customers would seek to display projections for seven hours or more per day.

The XEED WUX6000 is compatible with five different projection lenses – a short fixed lens, wide zoom lens, standard zoom lens, long zoom lens and an ultra-long zoom lens. All five lenses use the same connector as the XEED WUX 4000 and WUX5000, making them cross-compatible with existing devices, offering system integrators and customers enhanced flexibility during installation.

Images of up to 600 inches / 1,524 cm can be projected with a 16:10 Aspect Ratio from just 13m away using the wide angle zoom lens RSIL05WF. A motorised lens shift function allows users to adjust the position of projected images in all directions using a remote control. In addition, the XEED WUX6000 has an in-built image corrector with an edge blending function, helping achieve precise image superimposing. The projector can also be mounted in a wide variety of angles, enabling customers to realise a variety of video productions at any angle, from floor to ceiling.

Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director of Canon Middle East said: “System integrators and customers are demanding greater flexibility and image quality from their projector solutions. We are addressing these market needs with our new flagship model, offering a wide range of compatible lenses, advanced image quality and improved energy savings to a range of environments including offices, classrooms and for digital signage projections.”
