This model allows the display of true widescreen screen 1080p content without compression, showing the true proportions of the source image on the screen just as it appears on your computer monitor.
AISYS-Enhanced LCOS Technology
Canons renowned optical prowess combines the latest generation of our AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine with LCOS technology in the REALiS WUX5000. They come together to deliver brilliant, ultra-sharp images in almost any environment.
LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) has taken projectors to a whole new level. This technology means higher resolution images, seamless images with no flickering or "screen door" effect, quick image response for better looking moving images, smooth rendition of fine lines, seamless photo reproduction, sharp display of small text, and crisp blacks.
Canon takes the capability of LCOS technology to the next level by combining it with our proprietary and enhanced 4th generation AISYS Optical Engine. Covered by a Canon patent, this optical light engine achieves brightness and high contrast. AISYS has three components: the illumination system; the color separation and combination system; and the LCOS panels. Only Canon's innovative, breakthrough AISYS technology achieves the right balance of contrast, brightness and compact size to maximize the performance of LCOS.
Brighter, truer color comes from the AC lamp system of the REALiS WUX5000 and the AISYS Optical Engine. The colors on the screen have a more life-like depth thanks to the purity of red and green when compared with conventional DC lamps. In addition, this lamp system boasts an extended operating life up to 3,000 hours.
LCOS technology combined with Canon's exclusive AISYS Optical Engine, the AC lamp system, and 5000 lumens make the REALiS WUX5000 a superb high-performance installation projector like no other.
5000 Lumens with a 1000:1 Contrast Ratio
The REALiS WUX5000 projects an impressive 5000 lumens, delivering incredible image quality and brightness. The 1000:1 contrast ratio ensures deep blacks and bright whites. Pure, high contrast color reproduction creates images with crisp depth and dimension, ideally suited for conveying texture and materials. Color remains crisp, with superior color balance, perfect for presenting high quality visuals.
Three Optional Genuine Canon Interchangeable Lenses
The REALiS WUX5000 projector gives you the choice of three new interchangeable Genuine Canon lenses. Canon is renowned for our expertise and achievement in lens design and construction- in fact the optical technology developed for our acclaimed EOS series of SLR cameras is reflected in the development of our projection lenses. The 1.5x Zoom Lens (RS-IL01ST), Long Focus Zoom Lens (RS-IL02LZ) and Ultra Wide Angle Lens (RS-IL03WF) can be attached to the REALiS WUX5000 depending on the application.
A standout feature of these Genuine Canon lenses is their lack of brightness loss compared to lenses fitted to competitors products. Why is that important? Because you will no longer need to over specify brightness in order to compensate for loss, which is common with wide or long throw lenses. That can have a real impact on the price you pay for your installation projector.
All three lenses share the benefits of specifically designed aspherical lenses to minimize their total length. In fact, all three lenses are similar in size and fit in the same space on the projector. For temporary installations, such as those carried out by staging and or rental companies, the projector can be shipped in the same box with the lens already assembled.
Motorized Lens Shift
The horizontal/vertical lens shift capability of all three lenses ably assists in allowing maximum flexibility for a wide variety of installation situations.
You can be virtually assured that the REALiS WUX5000 can be optimally placed, and since lens shift doesnt degrade the image the way digital keystone correction can, the extraordinary quality of your projected images is not compromised.
Ease of Installation and Maintenance
With dimensions of 15.0" W x 6.7" H x 16.9" D and a weight of 18.7 lbs, the REALiS WUX5000 makes installation easy in a wide variety of applications.
The design of the location of the consumable parts enhances both flexibility in mounting and ease of maintenance. The projector's lamp and filter can be replaced from the back/side, and the PS optical filter element can be replaced through the top of the projector.
Advanced Color Management System
Like all REALiS projectors, the REALiS WUX5000 includes Canon's high-accuracy Color Management System helps to ensure accurate color reproduction for an extended color space and compensates for color variances due to lighting differences. Precise control prevents the excess leakage of light, producing rich, detailed gradations even in the shadowed portions of images - recreating depth and dimension with stunning drama and realism.
The REALiS WUX5000 features a color processing algorithm, along with a highly accurate 3D LUT (Look Up Table). Conventional systems shift neighboring colors along with the selected color, often resulting in an imbalance in the image. The WUX5000 allows for the correction of a single color without affecting the others.
Your projection screen is your canvas with the REALiS WUX5000's color control. An easy-to-use Graphical User Interface lets you adjust your palette of colors to paint the picture you want for your audience. The WUX5000's 6-Axis Color Adjustment lets you fine-tune the hue, saturation and brightness of each of the primary and secondary colors. This high degree of control makes each projected image a masterpiece.
