Canon announces small and light 4K projector
Canon has announced the XEED 4K600Z LCOS, laser phosphor projector that offers 6,000 lumens and a throw ratio of 1.34-2.35:1.
It is suited to professional environments including simulation, design, education, creative installations and digital signage.
The projector offers 4K resolution of 4096 x 2400 and colour covering the sRGB colour space. It weighs 26kg including the lens and can be installed at any angle, with a motorised lens shift of +/- 60% vertical and +/-10% horizontal.
It can deliver an accurate display of greyscale x-ray imaging in medical education due to its Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) simulation mode3, which is compliant to DICOM 14 standards for medical display teaching.
Wi-Fi capabilities allow for management and control of the projector through iOS devices, which was previously only possible through a wired LAN4. The Canon Projector Service Tool app – available on iOS devices - enables control functionality, and an error reporting and resolution procedure. Its blue light laser source helps offer an operation time of up to 40,000 hours.
