Canon’s new 4K resolution projector will be on show at ISE 2019. The 4K5020Z is an LCOS technology-based projector that is claimed by Canon to feature the world’s most compact and light chassis yet.
Delivering 5,000 lumens of brightness using a blue laser diode light source and yellow phosphor wheel, the interchangeable lens projector features Canon’s newly developed RS-SL07RST lens. This is a 4K lens that the company says utilises Canon’s most advanced lens glass. The lens features a 1.76x motorised zoom facility.
Multiple image settings are said to offer precise content reproduction, including DICOM sim which delivers sharp greyscale for displaying medical X-rays.
The 4K5050Z is provided with two HDMI inputs, offering 4K/60p using a single HDMI cable, plus HDR and 4K at both 60p and 30p respectively. Designed to enable easier integration, the 4K5020Z features a lens shift of +/-73% in the vertical plane (or, in expanded mode, 104%) and +/- 11% in the horizontal plane.
The projector is equipped with a 12-month scheduling function, which allows for programming and automation to the power, inputs, lens and calibration for reduced management time.
