ISE 2017: Canon to create immersive experiences with 4K20 December 2016
Canon Europe will showcase its latest developments in 4K projection technology at ISE 2017, including exhibiting the XEED 4K600STZ for the first time.
At the show, Canon will present an immersive domed 4K projection area, a creative blend installation, and ‘touch and try’ demonstrations for visitors. In the domed 4K projection area, an immersive double-4K projection demonstration will utilise two Canon XEED 4K501ST projectors on a curved surface from AV Stumpfl. This will also feature the XEED 4K501ST projector in collaboration with Phoenics 360° displays, showcasing a seamless 360° 4K projection on a multi-media column, ideal for digital signage applications such as advertising.
Showcasing for the first time, Canon’s XEED 4K600STZ laser projector has native 4K (4,096 x 2,400) resolution and utilises long life 6,000-lumen solid-state light source technology, which can project 4K image quality onto curved or domed surfaces with consistent focus.
The stand will also feature three Canon XEED WUX450ST projectors along a passage way, offering viewers superb image quality as they walk through, without any obstructions such as shadows. This is due to the projector’s vertical lens shift that enables a range of installation options, as well as the flexible picture-by-picture and edge blending options.
The ‘touch and try’ demonstration area will display models including the Canon XC15, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II.
Andreas Herrnböck, European business development manager, visual communications, Canon Europe, commented: “We’re excited to be at ISE this year to showcase our variety of first-class 4K imaging projectors suited for an array of installations from simulation for education, to entertainment at museums, theatres and galleries, as well as digital signage. We’re excited to be working with our partners that have joined us on the stand this year. Together, we’re continuing to push the boundaries on developing innovative and exciting solutions for a range of installation requirements.”
