Features

Eye-opening 4K resolution produces incredibly detailed, high-impact images that are significantly sharper and more true to life than lower resolutions.

At 4096 x 2400, Canon's 4K resolution generates a bigger, richer picture made up of more than 9.8 million pixels – higher than the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) standard for 4K cinema (4096 x 2160) and more than QFHD (3840 x 2160), the resolution standard for 4K TV. When compared to popular Full HD (1920 x 1080), this projector's native resolution produces more than four times the resolution.

This high resolution can help in a variety of applications ranging from viewing highly detailed works of art in a museum or gallery, to producing highly accurate video and images with a wide depth-of-field to get as close as possible to a real life experience via a simulation system.

This projector projects bright 5000 lumen*1 images with up to a 3000:1 contrast ratio that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color. The results are images with crisp depth and dimension, and amazing color accuracy, which is critical to those with discerning needs.

Canon's cutting-edge optical design achieves 4K resolution and 5000 lumen brightness within an incredibly compact projector size. The innovative AISYS Optical Engine makes this possible by independently controlling light in both vertical and horizontal directions to achieve both high brightness and contrast. Combined with the small size of the LCOS panels (just 0.76 inches), the projector is incredibly compact while delivering outstanding performance. At a height of 6.9 inches, width of 18.5 inches and weight of 38.8 pounds, it's smaller and lighter than many others. In addition, its shorter throw ratio of 1.0–1.3:1 means a 10-foot wide image can be projected from an approximate distance of only 10 feet away, allowing for large images in tight spaces.

The exceptional imaging performance of this projector starts with Canon's proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine, which utilizes advanced light management technology to maximize the contrast and brightness benefits of the projector's LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display panels, which deliver superior reflectivity and durability while accomplishing high luminance. The LCOS panels are relatively small in size, allowing for an overall compact projector that delivers high-resolution and high-quality results. With Canon's AISYS-enhanced LCOS technology the pixels are close together, producing images that are virtually seamless, where with other technologies there may be grid lines visible from their larger spaces between pixels. The result with this projector is an immersive 4K resolution picture with crisp detail and true-to-life color.

Drawing on Canon's advanced optical expertise, the specialized 4K short focus wide zoom lens projects virtually distortion-free 4096 x 2400 resolution images.

The design includes the same bold red ring around the lens barrel as Canon's renowned L-series EF camera lenses, which are highly regarded among professional photographers as many of the industry's finest. The lens itself features a multitude of sophisticated Canon technologies, such as dual-sided aspherical lens elements as well as Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements. These elements significantly reduce chromatic aberration, curvilinear distortion, ghosting and flare to create sharp and clear images in a compact size.

A deep depth of focus at F2.6 as well as a new Marginal Focus feature allow images to be rendered highly accurately onto a variety of curved surfaces. Where other projectors may distort or bow at the edges, Canon's optical technology keeps the image periphery extremely straight with a significantly low TV distortion. This results in beautiful images with smooth edges. The Marginal Focus feature facilitates projection on spherical surfaces. With the Marginal Focus feature the focus of peripheral areas can be adjusted while maintaining center focus.

With the Genuine Canon Optics of this projector, brightness remains virtually consistent at 5000 lumens*1 throughout the 1.3x zoom range, resulting in images that remain clear, strong and color-true whatever the projection distance within the zoom range.

Canon’s advanced, powerful dual image processing engines produce exceptional reproduction of virtually all content. The engines also allow the projector to offer a variety of features that help enhance the quality of still and motion images, making them more realistic and impactful.



4K Video Playback at Up to 60p: Smoothly reproduces uncompressed 4K video at up to 60 frames per second for a natural, fluid feel and highly detailed, true-to-life content.

Upscaling: Non-4K content will be maximized utilizing two upscaling technologies of BiCubic and Canon’s proprietary Sharp Trace – which can detect contours of an image in a diagonal direction and performs interpolation, resulting in a stunningly smooth image.

This projector includes pre-set Image Modes and additional customizable Image Modes to suit a wide range of user preferences and projection environments.


Multiple Image Modes*5

Image Modes provide different variations of color reproduction characteristics suitable for the image type and projection environment. They include:


Standard: Ideal for bright rooms, and when using content from computer screens or motion picture content.

Presentation: Ideal for somewhat bright rooms when text needs to be clear, such as when part of a video presentation.

Dynamic: Ideal for rooms that are somewhat bright, and when showing motion picture content.

Photo/sRGB: Ideal for projecting images from sRGB-supported digital cameras.

Video: Ideal for rooms that are somewhat dark, and for video content.

DICOM Simulation Mode*6: Ideal for displaying medical images in non-diagnostic settings. Both Blue Base and Clear Base settings are supported.

This projector offers extensive image quality adjustments to help users customize the image to meet their specific projection needs.


Image Adjustments
The Image Adjustment settings allow users to customize the image and color characteristics to fulfill their specific imaging needs. These include:

Brightness
Contrast
Sharpness
Gamma
Color Adjustments

• Color Level
• Color Balance
• Color Temperature
• Gain (RGB)
• Offset (RGB)



Advanced Image Adjustments
These adjustments provide greater flexibility to professional users with more options to adjust the image as desired. These settings include:

Ambient Light: This technology allows the user to select the color temperature, lamp type and other characteristics that are in the active environment.

Random Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates minute noise that may appear in the image.

MPEG Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates block noise that may appear when playing back compressed digital images and "mosquito noise" that may appear in a dot pattern near the edges.

Dynamic Gamma: When applied, this feature analyzes individual areas of the image for specific, independent contrast adjustment so light and dark areas do not appear over or under exposed.

Memory Color Correction: This Canon technology can be used to enhance skin tones and other color features for rich, vivid results that look striking to the human eye.

6-Axis Color Adjust: This technology lets users fine-tune the hue and saturation of each of the primary and secondary colors, providing a high degree of control that can make each projected image a "masterpiece."

Fine-tune Gamma: This setting enables the adjustment of gamma curve, allowing the user to adjust white, red, green and blue.

This projector includes Canon's latest Motion Blur Reduction*2 feature for improved visibility when movement is fast. By inserting extra frames to video content, motion blur is reduced and the clarity of graphics and text on fast-moving objects is preserved. Three different modes (Strong, Low and Off) are included for flexibility, with each depending on the level of movement and type of video content.

Motorized Lens Shift: Motorized vertical (±60%) and horizontal (±10%) lens shift allows for adjustment of the image with virtually no distortion. This model is also equipped with motorized zoom and focus for further convenience and ease.

360-degree Vertical Installation*3: 360-degree projection*3 allows the projector to be positioned anywhere on the vertical axis. Fan speed can also be adjusted to help optimize results (depending on projector positioning).

4-point Keystone Correction: Allows the corners of the image to be independently adjusted to help ensure optimal image reproduction.

Lens Position Memory: Up to 3 different custom lens presets can be stored and memorized. Each preset includes information for a variety of lens settings.

Screen Color Correction: Enables users to fine-tune the colors of images based on the color of the projection surface. Adjustments can be made from Normal and Greenboard, as well as additional tuning for projecting onto virtually any other colored surface.



Test Patterns: 28 test patterns are provided to enable smooth installation and adjustment.

A variety of advanced installation settings provide added customization options for challenging installation areas.

Marginal Focus: The Marginal Focus feature helps to ensure that images projected onto a spherically domed surface are kept in focus right up to the very edges. With this projector, the built-in marginal focus allows for adjustment of focus on domed screens.

Built-in Edge Blending: The Edge Blending function enables the user to combine multiple images to create a seamless, extra-wide projection. Advanced functions allow for color blending and black level adjustments to maximize image quality.

Advanced Registration: Advanced Registration allows independent position adjustment of the three primary colors (RGB) with high accuracy (0.1 pixel) ultimately reducing blurred colors or lines often projected at the edge of an image.


Micro-Digital Image Shift: The Micro-Digital Image Shift function shifts the image electrically, using the surplus pixels on the LCOS panel.


Registration: The Registration function modifies the registration by electronically correcting color shift due to changes in alignment of each RGB panel position.


Fan Mode: Fan Mode gives the user the ability to adjust the fan speed to supporting different environmental workspaces.


Vertical Projection: The Vertical Projection function automatically adjusts fan speeds and other configurations to support vertical installations.
