Up to 5000 Lumens*1 and 2500:1 Contrast Ratio Delivers Bright, Engaging Images
This projector projects bright 5000 lumen*1 images with up to a 2500:1 contrast ratio that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and rich color.
Native WUXGA Resolution (1920 x 1200)
Canon's WUXGA resolution brings bright, true widescreen display of intricately detailed HD video content and still images with outstanding color richness to large-room installations in high resolution WUXGA (1920 x 1200) at a competitive price. Content is projected without compression. Widescreen graphics, text and other visual content from laptops and desktop computers are shown in accurate proportions, just as it appears on most monitor screens.
This projector utilizes Single-chip Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, which is a widely utilized projection technology that creates natural and lifelike images. The DLP technology utilizes a 6-segment color wheel along with a reflective Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) to produce video and images with color and high brightness. The resulting high-resolution video and images maintain the details inherent in what you are showing.
Advanced Image Quality Adjustments Settings for Enhanced Image Reproduction
The LX-MU500 has a throw ratio of 1.07 – 1.71:1, and a slight vertical Lens shift of 52.5% - 55% -- making it possible to adjust the image without digital distortion. The 4-point Keystone function makes it possible to adjust the image corners independently to offer additional flexibility while keeping the image in focus. Traditional keystone provides ±30° vertical and horizontal adjustment.

DICOM Simulation Mode
This projector offers a DICOM Simulation Mode to simulate the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. The DICOM Simulation Mode adjusts the gradation between the minimum and the maximum luminance so gradation is distributed optimally. This feature is optimized for displaying medical images such as X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs, which makes this projector ideal for non-diagnostic purposes such as lectures, academic meetings and in-hospital conferences. This feature is recommended for use in medical schools for training and educational use only.
