Manufacturer's Description

Perfect combination for great image quality

The XEED WUX5000 raises the quality bar for installation projectors. Projecting at WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) it delivers images from PC or Macintosh with exceptional clarity and reproduces Full HD video in perfect detail. Canon LCOS technology delivers stunning image quality, which overcomes the typical side-effects of conventional image projection that causes unwanted lattice or rainbow effects.

Exceptional performance

The XEED WUX5000 employs the latest generation of Canon's AISYS optical system, delivering a powerful 5000 lumens for all content, irrespective of colour. AISYS optimises the performance of the LCOS panels, for results that achieve real colour brightness. A high 1000:1 contrast ratio ensures vivid colours and excellent black levels. Delta.

Ecolour matching is exceptional and very close to professionally calibrated devices.

Canon's interchangeable motorised lenses

A range of high-quality motorised interchangeable lenses are available for the XEED WUX5000. The standard 1.5x zoom lens is ideal for most installations, while a 1.7x long-focus zoom lens is available for larger venues. The ultra-wide fixed lens is perfect for rear projection. Canon's High-quality lenses have been designed specifically to maximise brightness with exceptional image definition and geometry.

Advanced installation features

For easy operation the motorised zoom, focus and lens shift features can be altered by the remote control to an accuracy of half a pixel. The XEED WUX5000 has the perfect control necessary for single or multiple projector installs, such as 3D, stacking, blended systems and domes.

Flexible integration and versatile connectivity

Both DVI.

Dand HDMI ports connect the XEED WUX5000 with high-definition digital sources. There's also a 15-pin VGA terminal and three mini-jacks for audio connectivity. Serial and network ports enable control and monitoring, while PJLink compatibility is ideal for integrating an AV system.

Easy maintenance

Maintenance has never been quicker or easier. The high-efficiency lamp has a lifespan of up to 3000 hours (4000 hours in Quiet mode) and is easily accessed from the rear of the projector. The air filter simply slides out from the side. Quick access is also provided to key optical components so there's no need for complex dismantling.
