The Six New Models Feature WUXGA High Resolution, High Brightness and Advanced Projection Technologies

MELVILLE, N.Y., January 30, 2018 – Continuing to exceed the demands of professional projection applications across a wide range of industries, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced an expansion to its award-winning REALiS LCOS projector lineup. From small conference rooms to large lecture halls, the REALiS WUX5800Z, WUX6600Z, and WUX7000Z Laser Projectors and the REALiS WUX5800, WUX6700, and WUX7500 Lamp Projectors offer users WUXGA (1920 x 1200) high resolution, high brightness ranging from 5800-7500 Lumens and versatile connectivity including HDMI and DisplayPort terminals – all in an enhanced, durable compact body.

The newly designed models are also complemented by a centered lens mount that fits six interchangeable Genuine Canon lenses, including a unique Ultra Short Fixed Lens RS-SL06UW with an impressive short throw ratio (0.54:1) and large vertical lens shift (-15 percent ~ +75 percent) for outstanding installation flexibility.

“These new projectors showcase Canon’s commitment to its customers and the greater AV industry, as many of the new enhancements are a direct result of feedback integrated with core Canon features of high image quality and compact size,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We plan to continue to nurture and grow our projector product line to include new technologies and designs to better optimize what is most important to integrators and end users alike.”

All six new projector models share these key technologies/features:

The WUX5800Z (5800 lumens), WUX6600Z (6600 lumens) and WUX7000Z (7000 lumens) are powered by a laser phosphor light source which provides long-life lasting operation of up to 20,0002 hours, and all projectors are equipped with a “Longer Duration Mode3” which is capable of achieving up to 40,0002 hours of operation.

The WUX5800 (5800 lumens), WUX6700 (6700 lumens) and WUX7500 (7500 lumens) utilize a traditional lamp light source and achieve superb quietness at only 27 dB4, suitable for installation environments that demand minimal noise such as schools, hospitals and art galleries.

If you use it for photo viewing: yes, that's bad.

If I look at the prices for the LASER models and the specialty lenses I think: It is for professional (1) presentations in large halls (conferences, teaching @ universities) and (2) for display stands profiting from the extended lifetimes at high brightness.
4k isn't that important for these applications, less pixels, less pixels which could be malfunction.

So it is not mainly intended for your living room (or mine) and @ 11 000 $  it much more expensive compared to an 4k OLED screen with 60 inches which is great for photo viewing. I own a 3year old 500 EUR/$ 4k TV with a conventional LED backlit panel and just that is very cool for viewing images @ 3240 x 2160 pixel resolution.
