Canon Debuts SXGA+ LCoS Multimedia Projector

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

Canon has debuted a new model in its REALiS line of LCoS-based projectors, the SX800, an SXGA+ multimedia projector that uses Canon's latest-generation 0.55-inch LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) LCD panels.

The new 11-pound SX800 offers a resolution of 1,400 x 1,050, a contrast ratio of 900:1, and a brightness of 3,000 lumens. It uses Canon-developed LCoS panels to eliminate the "screen door" effect experienced with standard LCD projectors.

Other features include:

  • Auto/manual vertical keystone correction (±20 degrees);
  • A 1.5x powered zoom lens;
  • Powered focus;
  • 12x digital zoom (in addition to 1.5x optical zoom);
  • Canon's Aspectual Illumination System optical system; and
  • An "Off and Go" feature that allows users to unplug the projector without a cool-down period.

The Canon REALiS SX800 Multimedia Projector is available this month for $2,499. Further information can be found here.
