Canon has announced the release of two new laser projectors, the LX-MU800Z and LX-MU600Z, both with a resolution of 1920 x 1200.
These new models are aimed at the growing demand for laser projectors in digital signage, retail, education and visitor attractions. The LX-MU800Z and LX-MU600Z are designed to offer up to 20,000 hours of operation and provide strong colour reproduction and brightness. In addition, as there are no filters in the new models, there are minimal maintenance requirements during the projectors’ lifetime.
The projectors provide a maximum brightness of 8,000 and 6,000 lumens and offer a broad colour gamut and advanced colour fidelity due to the newly designed four segment colour wheel and blue laser light source.
To meet the needs of a variety of projection environments, the projectors will also feature adjustable brightness by varying the light source power between 20% and 100% for the 8,000 lumen LX-MU800Z and between 35% and 100% for the 6,800 lumen LX-MU600Z. Both projectors will feature dynamic black technology, which, when enabled, automatically adjusts contrast in real-time and increases the contrast ratio from 1,050:1 to 10,500:1 to produce more vivid dark scenes.
The LX-MU800Z and the LX-MU600Z will be available in the second half of 2016.
