Canon's LCoS Panels Drive HD Projectors

Canon held a press conference to present its two projectors, the REALiS WUX10 and the REALiS SX80. Both use Canon's own manufactured LCoS panels.

According to Ricardo Chen, Canon's means of engineering its LCoS panels significantly reduces the space between panels, which can often create a "screen door" effect, and produces 0.55-inch panels with a 90+ percent fill factor. Produced in the company's own factory, the electrodes used in the panels also withstand more heat than most other LCoS panels. "We're going from raw materials all the way to finished Canon products," he said.

The result is the REALiS SX80 and the REALiS WUX10. The high-resolution SX80—targeted to medical, business, and computer aided drafting (CAD) applications—has the ability to connect directly to a digital camera as well as HD camcorders and USB drives, projection in SXGA+. With a refresh rate the company claims is twice as fast as competing LCD projectors, users can rotate and manipulate the image once it's displayed.

The WUX10, according to Chen, is the first WUXGA LCoS projector, with a 1080i (1920x1200) resolution. The projector displays in a 16:10 aspect ratio, as opposed to 16:9, in order to accommodate the many computer screens with the same dimensions. Targeting medical, CAD, and education fields, the projector displays video as well as stills at a rate of 24 frames per second, exemplified by a demonstration of video that emphasized the detail of various food, fabrics, and facial features.
