MELVILLE, N.Y., November 7, 2017 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the REALiS 4K600Z Pro AV LCOS Laser projector which incorporates all of the same features as Canon’s current award-winning REALiS 4K600STZ with the new standard throw ratio of 1.3-2.4:1 (throw ratio of 4K600STZ is 1.0-1.3:1). Suitable for a wide range of markets and applications including government, museums, higher education, and medical education and training, the 4K600Z projector utilizes Canon’s unique LCOS technology with AISYS-enhancement, an advanced Genuine Canon 4K projection lens and dual image processors to create beautiful ultra-high-resolution images.
“Canon’s 4K600STZ LCOS projector has been very well received in a variety of new markets and applications, and we’re excited to introduce this new model that further delivers on these markets’ needs,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are confident that our new REALiS 4K600Z projector will not only provide an extremely high quality of imagery, but will also help professionals in these markets advance their work and training to new heights.”
The REALiS 4K600Z Pro AV LCOS 4K projector is designed to offer an impressive native 4K resolution of 4096×2400 available pixels, making it ideal for those applications like simulation/training, design and engineering that require extremely high detail, and can also benefit from larger vertical display areas. The 4K600Z projector is also fully equipped with a unique Canon designed 4K high-performance dual-image processing engine, reproducing uncompressed 4K video at up to 60 frames per second (60P) using high-speed image processing technology.
The REALiS 4K600Z Pro AV LCOS 4K features exclusive Canon technology, such as the AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical engine that is designed to offer maximum brightness and contrast while maintaining a compact size. The projector’s Genuine Canon 4K Lens, which can project up to a maximum of 600 inches, is marked with a distinct red line around the lens signifying Canon’s highest quality of imaging technology. This model also includes a special Marginal Focus function, which can be used to help ensure content projected on the peripheral portions of domed surfaces remains in focus—particularly important to those in the simulation, training and educational fields.
Additional technology found in the REALiS 4K600Z Pro AV LCOS projector includes:
REALiS 4K601Z Pro AV LCOS Projector
For those specific applications that require a projector with no wireless connectivity and functionality, the REALiS 4K601Z Pro AV LCOS Projector is available with all of the same features as the 4K600Z, with the wireless connectivity and functionality removed.
