Detailed Features

Take a more detailed look into the Canon XEED WUX500

Compact, high-resolution installation projector

Enjoy superior image quality and versatile connections with the XEED WUX500 compact installation projector weighing only 5.6Kg. It delivers bright, detailed, high-resolution images from both computer and video-based sources, with easy to read text and smooth graphics thanks to the native WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) resolution, which also supports Full HD.

Consistent* brightness

Canon’s AISYS optical system delivers a powerful 5000 lumens brightness and a contrast ratio of 2000:1 for clear images, even in high ambient light levels. The 1.8x zoom lens has a constant F2.8 aperture, so the brightness is virtually unchanged regardless of zoom setting.

Advanced LCOS panel technology

The LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) panels work in combination with the AISYS system to create outstandingly smooth, seamless images with vivid, accurate colours, which are free from the unwanted 'lattice' and 'rainbow' effects that are often seen with other panel technologies.

Powerful imaging features put you in control

A range of advanced features gives you effortless flexibility and control over imaging. Built-in edge blending and registration adjustment let you seamlessly blend images from multiple projectors, while four-point keystone correction helps keep your image sharp and precise even when projecting at an angle. Picture-by-picture allows projection from two digital sources (or one digital and one analogue) ideal for video conferencing.

Simple brilliance

The projector’s Canon quality 1.8x zoom lens delivers precise geometry, sharp focus and accuracy and is equipped with powered vertical and horizontal lens shift for superior installation flexibility.

Versatile connection options

Project still and moving images from a wide range of sources using an extensive choice of inputs. These include an HDBaseT connection** and Wi Fi, plus a Network Multi-Projection (NMPJ) function for easy wired or wireless projection over a LAN. There are HDMI and DVI terminals for digital input, while firmware can be easily updated via the USB port, which also allows PC free presentation directly from USB flash drives. The built in RJ-45 network port enables remote monitoring and control and supports the 'Crestron Connected'™ standard.

Energy efficient and easy to maintain

Energy efficient ECO mode delivers a 5000 hour lamp life and also reduces fan noise to 30 dBA for a quieter environment.
