Canon launches new high resolution projector for the medical sector
Here’s a projector not for your home theatre setup. Canon has announced the availability of the REALiS WUX4000 D Installation LCOS projector, which is actually the company’s first high-resolution installation projector for the medical education market. The projector supports a DICOM Simulation mode that simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images.
“Canon’s commitment to the ever-growing installation market is increased by the widescreen, high-definition, large-image display capabilities of the new REALiS WUX4000 Installation LCOS Projector,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “Customers will see the superb display performance that has come to be expected from the REALiS product line.”
The Canon REALiS WUX4000 D Installation LCOS projector delivers WUXGA-resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreen (16:10) images at 4000 lumens and adopts a built-in Canon Color-Correction IC (integrated circuit), which together with the AISYS-enhanced LCOS system, provides highly accurate colour reproduction and precision luminosity adjustment without affecting the display of neighbouring colours. Canon also provides three optional Genuine Canon high-resolution interchangeable lenses for different throw distances and projection screen sizes. The new Canon REALiS WUX4000 D Installation LCOS Projector is scheduled to be available in March 2011 for $9,999 each, which is a bargain really if you include those lenses.
