The importance of lens technology was the focus for Canon Europe’s eighth appearance at ISE, with the company demonstrating how it believes its research is delivering improvements in colour, refraction and brightness that have led to major advances in projection quality and capabilities.
Reflection and brightness were demonstrated with Canon’s Aspectual Illumination System (AIS) and LCOS technology, developed, according to the company, to enable exceptional contrast and brightness, and provide faithful colour realism and seamless images. At the colour zone, Canon also showcased an installation project made possible by Canon’s innovations in lens technology.

The refraction zone was designed to highlight the ease with which Canon says its projectors can be adapted to meet the needs of end users and system integrators to create exciting and unique installations.
On show in the brightness zone was the recently-launched installation projector, the XEED WUX6000, demonstrating how it retains its brightness, with minimum drop and no loss of image resolution, even when used with different lenses. The capabilities of the XEED WUX400ST were the focus in the refraction zone, demonstrating how it can produce a 100in image from a distance of just 1.2 metres.
“This immersive experience we’re creating at ISE 2015 is truly helping our visitors to see and experience our projectors’ leading capabilities,” said Andreas Herrnböck, European business development manager projector, visual communications, Canon Europe. “Thanks to the strength of our 70 year heritage in imaging, we recognise the importance of bringing beautiful images to life. It is this passion and commitment that drives the design of our projectors. ISE 2015 provides the perfect opportunity to invite partners and end-users to visit our stand and experience the different zones for themselves.”
