Canon U.S.A., Inc. Key Developments

Canon U.S.A., Inc. Introduces New Realis WUX6000, Expanding the REALiS Pro AV Installation LCOS Projector Lineup

Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced the new high brightness REALiS WUX6000 Installation LCOS projector, designed for professionals seeking a balance of outstanding picture quality and performance and excellent price for medium-to-large display environments. Featuring LCOS Technology with Canon's unique AISYS-enhancement (Aspectual Illumination System), the Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation projector is built to deliver native WUXGA (1920 x 1200) high resolution still and motion images with intricate detail, accurate color, and high contrast (up to 2000:1). This new projector offers multiple image-mode settings and adjustments, a choice of optional Genuine Canon projection lenses to match a variety of screen sizes and installation environments, motorized lens shift for easy positioning and projection from multiple angles. The new projector also features extensive connectivity (including HDMI, DVI-I, and RJ-45), good burn-in resistance for long periods of continuous projection, and low-power consumption. A separate model, the REALiS WUX6000 D Pro AV Installation LCOS projector, is also available with all of the same features as the REALiS WUX6000 plus a special DICOM Simulation Mode for displaying monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs with superb grayscale gradation. This unique mode, which offers both clear and blue base color temperature presets, simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standard. Imaging Choices: Equipped with a powerful new image processing engine the new Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation LCOS projector can display many different types of video and computer signals with precise color, deep blacks, and virtually blur-free movement. Given the wide range of image-origination and image-viewing formats, the WUX6000 projector offers extensive image quality and color adjustments to suit user preferences. Additionally 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 in one letterboxed image. With the REALiS WUX6000 D, users can choose between viewing DICOM SIM monochrome images and sRGB color images side-by-side to enhance the learning experience. Projection Flexibility: Further contributing to the versatility of the new Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation LCOS projector are its multiple optional high-resolution interchangeable Genuine Canon projection lenses to meet the needs of a wide range of installation environments ranging from 40 inch to 600 inch image sizes. These include a Fixed Ultra Wide Angle Lens (0.80:1), and a Wide Zoom (1.0 - 1:5:1), 1.5x Standard Zoom (1.49 - 2.24:1), 1.7x Long Zoom (2.19 - 3.74:1), and a 1.95x Ultra Long Zoom (3.55 -- 6.94:1). Four of the lenses feature a motorized zoom and focus, and each is designed to help minimize brightness loss between their wide- and tele-ends. All lenses are the same physical length to avoid overhanging in lift systems. The projector also includes a motorized lens-shift feature for easy position adjustment of the projection area via remote control. A new Lens Position Memory function further adds flexibility by enabling users to store up to four lens position settings, making it easy to switch between various projector set-ups. Memorized items include zoom, focus, lens shift, keystone, aspect ratio, screen color, and digital image shift. Advanced installation features to help optimize projection quality include four-point keystone correction to independently adjust each corner of the image, and up-to-27 test patterns to facilitate calibration and adjustment during installation. Screen adjustment options include: a screen color setting to adjust the color balance according to the color of the projection surface, digital image shift to move the image horizontally and vertically, and support for 16:10, 16:9, and 4:3 aspect ratios. The design of the new Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation LCOS projector allows for 360-degree installation for projection at any angle, which can be an ideal and handy feature for tradeshows, theatrical events, museum, and amusement applications. To help maximize lamp life, this 360-degree installation includes a Vertical Projection Mode. Fan speed is adjusted depending on whether the projector is facing upward or downward. The REALiS WUX6000 projector can also be stacked or installed side by side in multi-projector configurations. Versatile Connectivity and Networking: In addition to its HDMI(R) and DVI-I connectors, the new Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation LCOS projector also features a USB Type A port, Component (Mini Dsub15), stereo audio inputs, and an audio output for connecting to external speakers or a sound system. The projector also includes a built-in five-watt speaker and a mini-jack for connecting an optional hand-held wired/wireless remote controller. Industry-standard control and networking inputs include RJ-45 and RS-232 serial connection enabling authorized users to manage and control the projector from any PC or third-party control system like Crestron or AMX. The REALiS WUX6000 projector also supports PJLink for networked projector control and monitoring of lamp hours, usage, and other variables. A built-in Network Multi Projection (NMPJ) function enables the Canon REALiS WUX6000 to project the output of one or more locally or remotely networked PCs. Four NMPJ modes enable selective sharing of visual information -- they include Direct (1 PC to 1 projector), Meeting (10 PCs to six projectors), Classroom (10 PCs to six projectors), and Broadcast (1 PC to 12 projectors). Economy and Convenience: The improved reflectivity of the LCOS panels used in the new Canon REALiS WUX6000 Installation projector helps increase the projector's energy-saving 'Eco' performance by delivering more efficient luminance from Canon's previous installation models. The projector employs a lower-power consumption rating of 0.076 watts per lumen (455w/6000lm) as compared to other projectors in this product class. The REALiS WUX6000 projector also offers multiple power management settings that allow users to pre-set stand-by durations, execute power operations, and auto-assign functions to the power button. A simplified maintenance design allows the air filter and lamp to be replaced while the projector remains ceiling-mounted. Price and Availability: The Canon REALiS WUX6000 and REALiS WUX6000 D Installation LCOS projectors have suggested list prices of $5,499 and $6,149 respectively and are scheduled to be available through authorized Canon dealers in November 2014. Both models are backed by Canon U.S.A.'s Projector and Lamp Limited Warranty.

Canon U.S.A., Inc. Introduces Long 4K Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens for Large-Format Single-Sensor Cameras

Canon U.S.A., Inc. has introduced the new ultra-telephoto CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom lens. With a long focal length and high magnification among Super 35mm zoom lenses, the new CINE-SERVO zoom lens offers cinematographers new possibilities for shooting scenes in HD, 2K and 4K on single-sensor cameras. The new Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm zoom lens is an ultra-telephoto lens with superb 4K optical performance and a removable Digital Drive unit to accommodate either broadcast or cinema-style production.

This combination of advantages provides outstanding aberration correction and high image quality extending from the center of the image to all edges. For professional users, this lens enables close-up 4K imaging of wildlife subjects or athletes while maintaining the physical distances necessary in such shooting situations. Ruggedly built, the durable new Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom lens features a removable Digital Drive unit for traditional EFP-style operation with a convenient zoom/rocker switch, programmable zoom and focus settings, and data connections for use with broadcast-type field/studio servo-demand controls for zoom and focus. Removal of the drive unit enables Cinema-style operation of the CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm lens, including clearly engraved barrel markings, an 11-blade iris to help achieve smooth bokeh, and compatibility with lens-support rods, matte boxes, and other cinema accessories. The new Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom lens is compliant with industry-standard camera-to-lens communication protocols to help ensure compatibility and maximum performance with multiple brands and models of 4K, UHD and HD cameras. These standards include 12-pin serial communication, Cooke's /i Technology and Canon EOS-LENS data communication technology. In the case of the Canon Cinema EOS system, precise lens data -- including aperture setting -- is displayed in the EOS camera's viewfinder, as well as recorded in the video file as metadata along with the model name of the lens and the given focal-length setting. The new Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom lens integrates advanced broadcast-style operability features that Canon developed as a maker of HDTV lenses for major sports coverage, wildlife photography, and ENG. These features include servo control of focus, zoom, and iris settings via the lens' removable Digital Drive unit. Ergonomically designed for operator comfort, the unit integrates a high-precision, high-resolution 16-bit microprocessor encoder linked to a convenient zoom/rocker switch that provides immediate start-up. This encoder enables camera operators to smoothly zoom at a variety of speeds, from a very fast 1.5 seconds to a very slow 180 seconds from full-wide to full-telephoto. Additionally, the encoder is capable of transmitting accurate analog and serial data for zoom, focus and iris settings through the Drive unit's 20-pin connector, allowing for this lens to be incorporated into most existing virtual imaging systems.

Canon U.S.A., Inc. Introduces Five Competitively Priced 3000-Lumen Portable Projectors

Canon U.S.A., Inc. introduced five portable projectors utilizing DLP(R) BrilliantColor(TM) display technology to deliver rich, realistic color, 3,000 lumens of brightness, a 2,300:1 contrast ratio for crisp blacks with depth and dimension, filter-free operation, and up to 6,000 hours of lamp life when in Economy mode. Designed for the education and corporate/small office markets, these competitively priced compact projectors weigh approximately six pounds and are backed by Canon's three-year parts and labor limited warranty and Projector Protection Program (Triple P). The new Canon portable projectors and their native resolutions are LV-WX300 Multimedia Projector with native resolution of WXGA (1,280 x 800), LV-X300 Multimedia Projector with native resolution of XGA (1,024 x 768), LV-S300 Multimedia Projector with native resolution of SVGA (800 x 600), LV-WX300ST Short Throw Multimedia Projector with native resolution of WXGA (1,280 x 800), and LV-X300ST Short Throw Multimedia Projector with native resolution of XGA (1,024 x 768). DLP(R) BrilliantColor(TM) technology integrates advanced color-processing algorithms, a six-color high-speed color wheel, and a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD), all of which combine to enable these new Canon projectors to deliver richer color reproduction and better motion and still-image projection than conventional four-color wheel systems. An added benefit of this technology is the sealed design of the DMD chip, which helps eliminate the need for an air filter and simplifies owner maintenance. Further lowering the cost of ownership is the Economy projection mode, which can help maximize the life of the lamp and help reduce power consumption by approximately 20% while also lowering fan noise. These new Canon projectors are also 3D-ready when combined with an optional DLP-Link System and other accessories. In addition to being compact, lightweight, and delivering all of the advantages of DLP(R) BrilliantColor(TM) display technology, the new Canon LV-WX300ST and LV-X300ST short throw models feature projection ratios of 0.49:1 and 0.61:1 respectively, enabling them to project an 80-inch picture (diagonal measure) from a distance of just 33 and 39 inches, respectively. This short-throw capability is well suited for limited-space environments such as small classrooms or meeting rooms. It also enables instructors and presenters to place a projector close to the screen, yet avoid having the light of the projection lamp shine directly in their eyes or cast shadows on the projected image if they want to point out picture details. Other short throw applications can include rear projection for advertising, digital signage, and museum displays. Color and Connectivity: All five of Canon's new portable projectors include advanced Color Adjustment features, including Screen Color adjustment, which helps to correct the colors of the projected image in relation to the color of the projection surface. Five pre-set colors are included: light yellow, pink, light green, blue, and blackboard. Additional Color Adjustment features include five Image Modes to suit varied presentation needs (including: presentation, standard, sRGB, movie, and two user-determined custom settings), and a BrilliantColor Adjustment for more realistic and brilliant colors. Also, the 16:10 aspect ratio display output provided by the Canon LV-WX300 and LV-WX300ST projectors enable full presentation of wide screens from the latest compatible laptop computers and other digital video sources. Canon's new portable projectors include multiple computer, video, and audio inputs for compatibility with a variety of image-playback devices. An HDMI input offers the ability to project high-quality images and 1,080p HD-originated digital video from compatible computers, Blu-ray players, cable/satellite boxes, and other devices such as BD recorders. The projectors also include inputs for audio sources, and have a built-in 10-watt speaker to make it easier to add sound to presentations in smaller spaces without needing to bring in an amp or additional speakers (the LV-S300 model has a two-watt built-in speaker). If users want to connect to external speakers or a room's existing compatible sound system, they can do so using the audio output jack included on each projector. These new Canon projectors also include an RS-232 input, a USB Type B service port, support for PJLink(TM) network control and monitoring, and Crestron connectivity. User-friendly system set-up features for these new Canon projectors provide added versatility and convenience for presenters, whether in classrooms, corporate meeting rooms, or on location. These features include a small but easily readable "time-code" style Presentation Timer window that can be superimposed on the projected image to display the elapsed time of presentations. This is an especially convenient feature for multiple presenters. The timer window can be constant, displayed in one-, two-, or three-minute intervals, or turned off completely. A Closed Caption (CC) mode can be switched on to display the text of dialogue and narration -- as well as descriptions of sound effects and other audio -- in CC-enabled content. When the presentation is finished, a convenient Direct Power Off feature enables users to simply pull out the power cable to turn off the power for quick breakdown and removal.
