XEED Compact Installation projector range launched

XEED Compact Installation projector range launched

May 2013

Canon has launched a new range of XEED Compact Installation projectors that provide market-leading image quality and represent a new category of projector solutions, while retaining the features and performance that are normally only found on full-size installation models.

The new series of projectors will initially include two standard models – the XEED WUX450 and the XEED WX520 – and two short throw models in the shape of the XEED WUX400ST and the XEED WX450ST.

All-new projection lens with constant brightness

The Canon XEED WUX450 and XEED WX520 models both have a 1.8x zoom projection lens that delivers virtually the same brightness throughout the entire zoom range. The all-new projection lens has a constant aperture of f/2.8, which results in almost no loss of brightness at the telephoto end of the zoom range (maximum 5% drop). This outstanding performance is a direct result of Canon’s expertise in lens design, coupled with the fifth-generation AISYS optical system, which maximises the performance of the Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) panels. LCOS technology produces fine, detailed images without the lattice effect that is sometimes seen on other projectors.

The combination of LCOS technology and constant brightness is unique to Canon and gives system integrators maximum flexibility to use the device from various throw distances with no compromise on image quality or luminosity. The projectors are designed for maximum flexibility and include four-corner keystone correction, which makes it easier to configure clear displays from any projection angle.

Canon Europe’s Projector Product Strategy and Planning Director, Julian Rutland, commented: “Within the segment, nothing comes close to the quality and brightness offered by the new XEED Compact Installation series. Our partners can now offer a compact projector with comparable features and performance to larger installation models, allowing greater flexibility when meeting the needs of customers.”

The Canon XEED WX520 is one of two new standard projectors that feature a new 1.8x projection lens that offers almost no loss of brightness throughout its zoom range.

Class-leading energy efficiency

The new series offers class-leading energy efficiency, with a dedicated ECO button, and uses significantly less power than comparable products whilst also delivering exceptional brightness. Canon’s ultra-efficient fifth generation AISYS optical system and all-new projection lens are instrumental in this super-low power consumption. The models boast a ‘best-in-class’ energy consumption of just 0.081 watts per lumen for the WUX450 and 0.068 watts per lumen for the WX520. Whilst in standby mode the devices use only 1W, further helping to prevent wasted energy.

Ease of installation and maintenance

The new projector series has a range of quick and easy maintenance features, including an air filter that can be accessed without the use of any tools and a lamp that can be replaced from the rear without uninstalling the projector, thereby preventing any downtime and improving efficiency. Firmware updates can also be delivered via USB flash drives, meaning that essential updates can be applied without the need to return the device to a service facility.

Thanks to a brand new image processor, the models also include an array of advanced features that make them particularly suitable for multi-display applications. Registration adjustment allows installers to perfectly align the three RGB panels, effectively eliminating convergence issues. Hardware edge blending is now built-in, enabling system integrators to easily create panoramic images, with perfect blends between each projector.

Compact Install short throw projectors

The two new short throw models – the WUX400ST and WX450ST – are based on the same hardware platform as the XEED WUX450 and XEED WX520 projectors, but with the addition of an all-new Canon short throw projection lens. These two projectors are designed for both front and rear projection installations and are especially suited to environments where space is at a premium, as well as larger venues where long cable runs are difficult or expensive to implement. A digital enlargement capability of 1.4x and no image distortion means they are perfect for short throw scenarios where image quality is paramount.

DVI and HDMI inputs are provided across all of the models in the range, with a ‘picture-by-picture’ facility that allows simultaneous display of two separate digital image sources for maximum flexibility.

Julian Rutland explained: “Canon is dedicated to helping system integrators provide bespoke projection solutions to their clients – whatever the environment or client brief. Our new XEED Compact Installation series offers all the features of an installation projector in a smaller chassis, whilst boasting best-in-class energy efficiency. In this way, we are providing the opportunity for our partners to target the installation market with a high quality and competitively priced product.”

  • The new Canon XEED Compact Installation projectors, including ‘Medical’ variants (equipped with a DICOM simulation image mode), will be available in the second half of 2013.
