According to the company, the new models are designed to meet the varying requirements of customers and integrators, particularly within the business and education environments.
The LX-MU700 is Canon’s brightest WUXGA installation projector to date, offering 7,500 lumens when both lamps are in use, ideal for environments such as large auditoriums where there are high levels of ambient light. In addition, dual lamp functionality offers higher levels of reliability as if one lamp fails, the projector can continue to operate in single lamp mode.
Canon also highlighted that the new projector also supports seven interchangeable lenses – ranging from short fixed to ultra-long –enabling integrators to choose the lens best suited to the projection distance and environment. The device is supported by two, six-colour wheels optimised for brightness or colour, making it ideal for installations where the use of video content or computer graphics is required.
The latest LX models support HDBaseT, a new standard for connectivity, allowing for the transmission of HD media, audio and control signals over long distances via a single LAN cable. The LAN cable can span up to 100 metres, greatly improving convenience in system configuration and supporting information sharing.
