Up to 5000 Lumens*1 and 2000:1 Contrast Ratio Delivers Bright, Engaging Images
This projector projects bright 5000 lumen*1 images with up to a 2000:1 contrast ratio that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color. The results are images with crisp depth and dimension, and amazing color accuracy, which is critical to those with discerning needs.
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.
LCOS Technology with AISYS-enhancement
The exceptional imaging performance of this projector starts with Canon's proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine, which utilizes advanced light management technology to maximize the contrast and brightness benefits of the projector's LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display panels, which deliver superior reflectivity and durability while accomplishing high luminance. The result is highly detailed, seamless, ultra-sharp image projection in virtually any environment.
Genuine Canon Optics with Short Throw Ratio (0.56:1) and Significant Lens Shift (75% Vertical and 10% Horizontal) Provide Exceptional Image Quality with Minimal Image Distortion
Drawing on Canon’s advanced optical expertise, this projector utilizes Genuine Canon Optics to project high-quality, virtually distortion-free images.
The lens features a multitude of Canon Lens technologies, such as dual-sided aspherical lens elements as well as Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements. These elements significantly reduce chromatic aberration, curvilinear distortion, ghosting and flare to create sharp and clear images in a compact projector size.
A short throw ratio of 0.56:1 means that a 100-inch diagonal image can be projected from an approximate distance of only 4 feet away, with virtually no image distortion. This allows for large, accurate images in tight spaces from museums and galleries to simulation and training.
A large vertical (0–75%) and horizontal (±10%) lens shift allows for adjustment of the image with virtually no distortion. Users can be virtually assured that this projector can be optimally positioned to suit their specific environment and needs.
Combined, the short throw ratio and significant lens shift help produce an optimized viewing angle that achieves virtually no distortion right up to the very edge of the image. A deep depth of focus (F2.7) allows images to be rendered highly accurately onto a variety of curved surfaces. Where other projectors may distort or bow at the edges, Canon’s optical technology keeps the image periphery extremely straight – exhibiting significantly low TV distortion. This results in beautiful images with smooth edges.
Installation Versatility with Motorized Lens Shift, 360-degree Vertical Installation*2, 4-point Keystone Correction and More Install-Friendly Functions
4-point Keystone Correction
Allows the corners of the image to be independently adjusted to help ensure optimal image reproduction.
360-degree Vertical Installation*2
360-degree projection*2 allows the projector to be positioned anywhere on the vertical axis. Fan speed can also be adjusted to help optimize results (depending on projector positioning).
Screen Color Correction
Enables users to fine-tune the colors of images based on the color of the projection surface. Adjustments can be made from Normal and Greenboard, as well as additional tuning for projecting onto virtually any other colored surface.
Picture by Picture
A Picture by Picture feature enables two high-quality images from two digital inputs (via DVI and HDMI) to be projected simultaneously side-by-side within the projected image.
26 test patterns are provided to enable smooth installation and adjustment.
This projector is equipped with a built-in HDBaseT™ receiver facilitating uncompressed HD video, audio and control signals to be transmitted over one single LAN cable with a maximum distance of 100m. This reduces complex wiring schemes used for a typical setup as well as maximizing long cable runs with minimal image quality degradation.
HDBaseT™ operation may vary when connected to other third-party HDBaseT™ devices. Please consult with a Canon representative for a full compatibility list.
Advanced Professional Installation Settings including Built-in Edge Blending and Advanced Registration
A variety of advanced installation settings provide added customization options for challenging installation areas.

Dynamic: Ideal for rooms that are somewhat bright, and when showing motion picture content.
Vivid Photo: Ideal for rendering rich color brilliantly and reproducing skin tones naturally.
Photo/sRGB: Ideal for projecting images from sRGB-supported digital cameras.
Video: Ideal for rooms that are somewhat dark, and for video content.
Cinema: Ideal for viewing theatrical image content in a room without lighting.
5 Customizable Modes: Ideal for custom set-ups. Provides up to 5 user-selected combinations of image quality settings that can be stored in the memory and selected as an image mode.
Image Adjustment and Advanced Adjustment Options for Customizable Image Characteristics
This projector offers extensive image quality adjustments to help users customize the image to meet their specific projection needs.
The Image Adjustment settings allow users to customize the image and color characteristics to fulfill their specific imaging needs. These include:
- Color Level
- Color Balance
- Color Temperature
- Gain (RGB)
- Offset (RGB)
These adjustments provide greater flexibility to professional users with more options to adjust the image as desired. These settings include:
Random Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates minute noise that may appear in the image.
MPEG Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates block noise that may appear when playing back compressed digital images and "mosquito noise" that may appear in a dot pattern near the edges.
Mosquito Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates "mosquito noise" exclusively from still images.
Dynamic Gamma: When applied, this feature analyzes individual areas of the image for specific, independent contrast adjustment so light and dark areas do not appear over or under exposed.
Lamp Control: This setting suppresses the amount of luminance by reducing the lamp power when the input image signal is of an all-black image. It will also improve the contrast ratio.
Allows the user to select either Full Power to project images at full brightness, or Power Saver which reduces lamp brightness to save energy.
Motion Blur Reduction*4
This projector includes Canon’s latest Motion Blur Reduction*4 feature for improved visibility when movement is fast. By inserting extra frames to video content, motion blur is reduced and the clarity of graphics and text on fast-moving objects is preserved. Three different modes (Strong, Low and Off) are included for flexibility, with each depending on the level of movement and type of video content.
Versatile Connectivity – HDMI, DVI-I, USB Type A, RJ-45, RS-232 and Audio Inputs
