Canon has today announced the launch of its newest short throw projector, the XEED WUX450ST LCOS (Compact Install Model). Sporting WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200) and a brightness of 4,500 lumens, this LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) projector is also equipped with a 1.35x optical zoom lens, with a short throw ratio of 0.56:1, and a 0 to +75% vertical lens shift (manual) function. This combination of features makes the WUX450ST ideal for a wide range of markets, including higher education, museums and galleries, corporate institutions, and for applications such as simulation, training, or digital signage.

Here’s a list of its key features with more details:

Genuine Canon lenses - Using a combination of dual-sided aspherical and ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens elements, and a wide aperture of F2.7, users can easily project sharp and clear images even on curved surfaces.

LCOS tech - The XEED WUX450ST is powered by Canon’s LCOS technology with AISYS-enhancement for “virtually seamless images with low latency playback”.

High brightness - The AISYS optical engine ensures up to 4,500 lumens brightness and a native contrast ratio of up to 2,000:1.

Advanced image adjustments - Users can easily tweak dynamic gamma, memory color correction, and the 6-axis color adjust (i.e., fine-tuning of the hue and saturation of each primary and secondary color) settings to achieve their desired output.

Ease of installation - The projector is equipped with a 4-point Keystone Correction function, allowing users to independently adjust the corners of the image. Also, an Edge Blending feature enables projection of one seamless, large image from multiple projectors. 360-degree vertical installation is also possible, and fan speed can be adjusted.

Versatile connectivity - The XEED WUX450ST offers multiple industry-standard interfaces, including HDMI, DVI-I, USB Type A, RS–232C, and HDBaseT network ports that support gigabit data transfer speeds. It also supports Wi-Fi connectivity. In addition, the XEED WUX450ST is a Crestron Connected device, compatible with AMX Device Discovery, and also supports PJLink, which makes it possible to control and monitor usage over the network.

The XEED WUX450ST is now available at Canon, at the recommended retail price of S$9,600.
