Canon 4K

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.
