These advanced designed optics employ dual-sided aspherical lens elements and Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements that significantly reduce chromatic aberration, ghosting and flare. This produces sharper, clearer images. The innovative optical system design also minimizes the total size of the optical system, enabling this projector to be smaller in size than other comparable systems.

Installation Versatility with Lens Shift, 360-degree Vertical Installation*2, 4-point Keystone Correction and More Install-Friendly Functions

Compact Design
This projector creates high resolution images within an incredibly compact projector size. The innovative AISYS Optical Engine makes this possible by independently controlling light in both vertical and horizontal directions to achieve both high brightness and contrast. Combined with the small size of the LCOS panels (just 0.76 inches), the projector is incredibly compact while delivering outstanding performance. At a height of 5.3 inches, width of 13.2 inches and weight of 13 pounds, it’s small and light enough to fit in a variety of spaces.

4-point Keystone Correction
The Canon REALiS WUX500 D features 4-point independent Keystone Correction that has been added to the WUX500 D giving the user the ability to adjust corners with precise accuracy. Furthermore, it allows the corners of the image to be independently adjusted to help ensure optimal image reproduction.

Manual Lens Shift
Manual lens shift makes it possible to adjust the image without digital distortion. The lens can be adjusted in both vertical and horizontal directions. Maximum lens shift is 0% - 60% vertical, +-10% horizontal.

Advanced Professional Calibration Settings including Edge Blending and PC-Free Multi Projection (JPEG only)

Edge Blending
The Edge Blending function enables the user to combine multiple images to create a seamless projection. Advanced functions allow for color blending and black level adjustments to maximize image quality.

PC-Free Multi Projection
Multi-Projection: Up to nine REALiS WUX500 Ds can be networked together to project one full image without the use of a computer. This is accomplished by setting one projector as a “master” and all others as “slaves”. The “master” projector reads the JPEG image that is input via the USB port and then distributes the information to the other projectors. Finally, all projectors work together to display a complete image.
