XEED WUX450: <br class="br_visual" />a compact, high-performance projector

a compact, high-performance projector

The XEED WUX450 is a compact, high-performance, WUXGA installation projector with lens shift. Canon’s most compact WUXGA installation projector to date, it has a powerful 4500 lumens that remains constant (*1) across the zoom range, plus a high-quality 1.8x lens with vertical and horizontal shift for easy installation.


The XEED WUX450 is a highly specified compact installation projector with industry leading WUXGA resolution (1920x1200 pixels), plus the ability to simultaneously display images from two different sources, correct keystone distortion on all four corners of an image, and display images from a USB key or across a local area network (LAN).

It is perfect for a wide variety of applications including business, higher education, photographic, specialist AV and medical imaging.


  • Native WUXGA resolution (1920x1200 pixels) with Full HD.
  • LCOS technology for smooth, seamless images.
  • 4500 lumens constant brightness across zoom range.
  • 2000:1 contrast ratio for vivid colours and true blacks.
  • 1.8x zoom lens with vertical and horizontal shift.
  • Picture-by-picture and edge blending.
  • HDMI™ and DVI inputs.
  • ECO function for reduced running costs and energy saving.
  • PC-less presentation.
  • Easy lamp and filter access.
  • Class-leading (*2) energy efficiency.

(*1) Brightness may decrease by up to 5%. Based on a single image size.
(*2) 3000-6000 lumen projectors, 0.8” panel size or less, single-lamp models. Based on Canon Inc. research as of May 2013.

Consistent brightness across the zoom range

Canon’s latest generation AISYS optical system delivers a powerful 4500 lumens brightness and a contrast ratio of 2000:1. The 1.8x zoom projection lens has a constant f/2.8 aperture. The brightness is virtually unchanged regardless of zoom setting, with almost no drop-off towards the telephoto end.

Superb image quality

The image quality of the XEED WUX450 has been enhanced by an all-new imaging processor – this offers built-in edge blending and registration adjustment that is perfect for multi-display installations.

Useful for video-conferencing, picture-by-picture is supported from two digital sources. Motion blur reduction keeps images sharp, even during fast-moving video, while the 4-point keystone correction allows projection from almost any angle. Native WUXGA resolution (1920x1200 pixels) and Full HD capabilities are supported by LCOS display technology that delivers stunning smooth images.

Easy installation and configuration options

The projector’s 1.8x lens is equipped with vertical and horizontal lens shift to allow for easier installation, while the flat-top and optional feet enable a variety of different configurations including stacking.

Flexible connectivity

The XEED WUX450 features HDMI and DVI terminals for digital input, while firmware can be updated quickly and simply via the projector’s USB port, which also allows projection directly from USB flash drives. Crestron RoomView® enables instant unified remote control and monitoring, while the Network Multi-Projection (NMPJ) function allows for easy projection over the LAN.

Simple maintenance features

The XEED WUX450 features new, more durable optical components with an improved service life. Its lamp lasts up to 5,000 hours when used in ECO mode, while the easily accessible lamp and air filter enable maintenance in the installed environment. The modular design makes the WUX450 simple to install and service.

LCOS panel technology

For the WUX450, Canon has developed a new, more durable 0.71” LCOS panel. The WUX450 uses a wide-ultra-XGA (WUXGA) panel, which has a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. The projector is equipped with three of these high-quality display panels, one for each primary colour. The high resolution is made possible due to the extremely precise panel construction. With conventional LCD panels, gaps between neighbouring pixels are required for the drive circuit. On LCOS panels however, the circuit is mounted on the rear of the panel, allowing the pixel pitch to be shrunk, subsequently producing a higher resolution for a given panel size.

The ‘Aperture Ratio’ of a display panel is the ratio of the effective area versus the entire panel area. The latest LCOS panel has an aperture ratio of around 96% - higher than ever before. Unlike traditional LCD devices, LCOS panels are reflective. Whereas LCD panels work by allowing light from the projection lamp to pass through them, the LCOS panel reflects light, meaning that more light passes unimpeded to the projection lens. Hence, the familiar dark ‘grid’ pattern that is normally associated with projected images is almost completely eliminated. The result is that beautiful, seamless images are produced.

Aspectual Illumination System (AISYS) technology

Developed to work perfectly with the new LCOS panel, the fifth generation of Canon’s Aspectual Illumination System (AISYS) makes its debut in the XEED WUX450. Due to the constant f number of the lens system, the same brightness is achieved across a range of projection distances.

The f/2.8 lens has a large depth-of-field, with the result that it is easy to bring the screen into focus. This holds true even when projecting onto the screen from an angle, or projecting onto an uneven surface.

The latest version of AISYS has been constructed without the use of organic polarising filters. Previously, these organic components would typically be the first parts to fail after an extended period of use, requiring replacement by skilled service personnel. Within this latest optical system, the polarisation conversion component is now constructed from inorganic materials. As a result, it has a far longer lifespan, and therefore there is no need to replace this component, even after extended use.

The efficiency of the new AISYS optical system is such that it achieves the highest efficiency of any projector in its class (currently defined as 3000–6000 lumen projectors, with a single lamp, panel size up to 0.8 inches). The reason for the exceptional ECO performance is due to the fact that AISYS reduces the light leakage to the lowest possible level, resulting in the highest luminosity per watt.

Imaging Engine Technology

Canon has developed a new image processing engine (chip) especially for its 2013 range of compact installation projectors – the XEED WUX450, XEED WX520, XEED WUX400ST and XEED WX450ST.

The new chip offers a whole host of advantages that weren’t available on previous Canon projectors. These include presentation using the network, edge blending (for multi-screen displays), built-in test patterns (useful in setting up and image adjustment), 4-point keystone correction, and picture-by-picture display for displaying images from two sources at once.
