New Canon Projector
A High-Res and Affordable Multimedia SolutionLAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., January 8, 2009 – Responding to the higher resolution and widescreen transition in all forms of visual display, and to the affordability requirements of many professional users, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today introduced the REALiS SX800, the latest advancement in Canon’s acclaimed line of REALiS Multimedia Projectors.
Featuring bright, crisp 3000 lumens display and a contrast ratio of 900:1, the new Canon REALiS SX800 provides an affordable alternative for XGA (1024 x 768) users seeking to upgrade to a higher resolution SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) projector. The benefits of upgrading include:
• Larger desktop area (an increase of almost 87 percent more pixels)
• Widescreen notebook and desktop computer support (displays WXGA uncompressed)
• Displays 720p HD video uncompressed (also supports 1080p HD)
Totally designed and manufactured by Canon, the new REALiS SX800 employs next-generation 0.55-inch LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) reflective LCD panels. These high-resolution SXGA+ panels help deliver detailed, lattice-free motion and still images by virtually eliminating the “screen door effect,” a faint grid pattern often seen in transmissive LCD projection. The panels are an integral component of Canon’s proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine. This advanced engine is best known for achieving projection with vibrant colors and high contrast and brightness, while maintaining a compact body design. Other benefits of AISYS include crisp display of small text, realistic and seamless photo reproduction, smooth rendition of fine lines, and accurate display of subtle color gradation and tones of black and grey.
“The transition to higher resolution projectors is upon us. Now that presentation professionals are using higher resolution notebook and desktop computers, they are insisting on using higher resolution projectors to accurately display their content.” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “In today’s economy, these professionals are demanding higher resolution projectors at more affordable prices. With the introduction of the new REALiS SX800 Multimedia Projector, Canon is making high-resolution SXGA+ LCOS projection available to the mass market, including those users in price-sensitive sectors.”
In addition, Canon’s new REALiS SX800 Multimedia Projector includes many features found on higher-end REALiS models including a Genuine Canon 1.5x zoom lens that has been designed with special components and coatings to ensure superb image reproduction, while minimizing glare and ghosting. The zoom lens also facilitates projector placement, allowing users to easily change the screen size to accommodate different presentation venues and situations. Keystone correction, which is aided by a 10:0 Lens Offset feature, is provided as part of the Auto ...
Leica Pradovit D-1200
Leica Pradovit D-1200
A New Projector with Superior Image QualityWith all the buzz about the Leica S2 their booth was busy at Photokina. As I wandered around the various displays there was a strange looking 15 foot long rectangular box in the middle of the floor. One end was about 2 feet square and the other end was about 4 feet. it was all black -- this was the Leica booth after all.
I walked up to it and realized that you could look into it. Sitting there was a small video projector that was displaying images down at the other end of the box. The pictures looked great. Then as I looked around I saw this same projector on the counter, it had a rather disproportionately large lens sticking out the front.
This was the new Leica Pradovit D-1200 projector. It is equipped with a new DLP engine from Texas Instruments, and has a custom engineered color wheel specifically designed for Leica.
Usually when talking about projectors you are soon mired into deep discussions of contrast ratio, lumens or nits. But what is often neglected is the optics that are delivering the image to the screen. I soon got to experience the D-1200 out of the box in the Leica Kino theater that they had set up.
The image quality was great (it doesn't hurt that they were showing images from some great photographers as opposed to obligatory projector footage of over-enhanced bowls of fruit or flowers). The brightness was great, but what struck me the most was how flat the illumination was across the screen.
While noise is one thing in images, in projectors it is actually heard. Unless rear projected many projectors end up being in the same room as the viewer. Leica's projector is very quiet.
