CANON U.S.A. ANNOUNCES A NEW ADDITION TO ITS AWARD-WINNING LINE OF REALiS LCOS PROJECTORSHigh-Brightness and Advanced Color Management Make This New Model Ideal For Those With the Most Discerning Image Quality Needs
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., March 8, 2010 – Canon U.S.A., Inc, a leader in digital imaging, today announced the launch of the REALiS SX7 Mark II Multimedia LCOS Projector. This new model combines the award-winning features of REALiS projectors with an impressive 4000 lumens of brightness and a Photo Image Mode to assist users with advanced color management and adjustments for ambient lighting conditions.
The Photo Image Mode allows users to easily make changes to improve the look and feel of the content being projected. Within this mode the Color Level and Color Temperature functions allow for fine-tuning of both the intensity of colors and the color temperature by selecting from easy-to-use presets. In addition, the Photo Image Mode includes an Ambient Light function which can be used to compensate for lighting conditions for both the type of lighting (Tungsten, Fluorescent and Fluorescent H) and intensity (Low, Medium or High). The ambient light function is ideal for users displaying content and cannot control the lighting conditions – such as educators speaking in classrooms or photographers showing their work in an art museum/gallery or at a seminar. The functions available in the Photo Image Mode allow users greater control of color reproduction and image quality.
“Whether presenting photographs, videos, presentations, or any other content, the color accuracy and amount of ambient light will play a major role in the perceived quality of work,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “The high-brightness and Photo Image Mode included on the REALiS SX7 Mark II allows users to display their images with outstanding detail and superb quality.”
The REALiS SX7 Mark II Multimedia LCOS Projector features advanced LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology with Canon’s patented, proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine. This advanced technology, combined with the projectors SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) native resolution and 4000 lumens of brightness, delivers extraordinary detailed, lattice-free motion and still images. This combination makes the REALiS SX7 Mark II ideal for classrooms, meeting/board rooms, photo studios and seminars/conferences.
The Canon REALiS SX7 Mark II Multimedia LCOS Projector supports Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces. Both of these color spaces are of critical importance to professionals demanding precise color-matching in the following fields of work: professional photography, graphics, printing, computer aided design and medical imaging. Additional key features include:
· Genuine Canon 1.7x Powered Zoom/Focus Lens for ease of projector placement
