With Canon LCOS projectors, you get all the brilliance and image sharpness of innovative LCOS technology, but in an ultra-portable and affordable projector unlike any others on the market. It's the right choice for displaying bright, big-screen images without darkening the conference room or classroom.
LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) has taken projectors to a whole new level. This new technology means higher resolution images, seamless images with no flickering or "screen door" effect, quick image response for better looking moving images, smooth rendition of fine lines, seamless photo reproduction, sharp display of small text, and crisp blacks.
Circuitry around each pixel causes screen door effect.
Space between micro-mirrors creates screen door effect.
Circuitry behind panels virtually eliminates screen door effect.
But only Canon realizes the full potential of LCOS technology by combining it with our proprietary and improved 3rd generation AISYS Engine, patented optical light engine for achieving brightness, and high contrast using LCOS panels. AISYS has three components: the illumination system; the color separation and combination system; and the LCOS panels. Only Canon's innovative, breakthrough AISYS technology achieves the right balance of contrast, brightness and compact size to maximize the performance of LCOS. Plus, our new advanced AISYS optical engine features new optical elements, redesigned polarizing beam splitters, and a reconfigured optical layout. The result is improved light efficiency, uniformity and expanded color space.

Color appears crisp and sharp.
With the new AC lamp system of the REALiS SX80 Mark II and the AISYS optical system the images you project are brighter, with truer color. The purity of red and green is enhanced over that which is possible with conventional DC lamps, giving a more life-like depth to the colors on the screen. In addition, the new lamp system boasts an extended operating life, up to 2000 hours in normal mode and up to 2500 hours in quiet mode.
LCOS technoogy combined with an improved 3rd generation AISYS optical engine, the new AC lamp system, and 3000 lumens make the REALiS SX80 Mark II a superb high-performance projector like no other.
