CANON U.S.A. STRENGTHENS ITS LINE OF MEDICAL EDUCATION PROJECTORS WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE REALiS SX7 MARK II DNew Model Features Canon’s DICOM Simulation Mode for Displaying Digital Medical Images with Accurate Color Reproduction and Precise Detail
“In the medical-education field, the need to display images with accurate color reproduction and precise detail is mandatory,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “With the new REALiS SX7 Mark II D, educators can be confident that whether in a classroom, conference room or other setting, the image being projected will be of the highest quality.”
The DICOM Simulation Mode on the REALiS SX7 Mark II D simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. This special mode allows users to calibrate directly on the projector using 21 different levels of gamma adjustments. This flexibility is significant as calibrating in a classroom, conference room or any other environment can be challenging when ambient light varies. While not cleared or approved for medical diagnosis, this projector is ideal for medical educators who need to display large images to properly train students and conduct lectures/conferences.
Like all REALiS Projectors, the SX7 Mark II D offers Canon’s advanced LCOS technology which is best known for producing film-like images and video. This state-of-the-art technology, combined with the projectors native SXGA+ high resolution (1400x1050) and impressive 4000 lumens of brightness, helps deliver images with exceptional color reproduction, fine lines and crisp small text (even as small as 7 point). Additional key features include:
· Genuine Canon 1.7x Powered Zoom/Focus Lens for ease of projector placement
· DVI-I Terminal ensures a true digital connection for high quality images and video
· Quiet Operation as this model produces only 31db (in Quiet Mode)
· Support of both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces

The REALiS SX7 Mark II D Multimedia Projector has a suggested list price of $7,799, and is scheduled to be available in April. This new model is backed by Canon USA’s Three-Year Limited Warranty and exclusive Projector Protection Program (“Triple P”).
