This projector projects bright 5000 lumen*1 images with up to a 2000:1 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 WUXGA resolution brings bright, true widescreen display of intricately detailed HD video content and still images with outstanding color richness to large-room installations in high resolution WUXGA (1920 x 1200) at a competitive price. Content is projected without compression. Widescreen graphics, text and other visual content from laptops and desktop computers are shown in accurate proportions, just as it appears on most monitor screens.

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 result is highly detailed, seamless, ultra-sharp image projection in virtually any environment.

Drawing on Canon's advanced optical expertise, this projector utilizes Genuine Canon Optics to project high-quality, virtually distortion-free images.

The lens features a multitude of Canon Lens 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 projector size.

A short throw ratio of 0.56:1 means that a 100-inch diagonal image can be projected from an approximate distance of only 4 feet away, with virtually no image distortion. This allows for large, accurate images in tight spaces from museums and galleries to simulation and training.

A large vertical (0–75%) and horizontal (±10%) lens shift allows for adjustment of the image with virtually no distortion. Users can be virtually assured that this projector can be optimally positioned to suit their specific environment and needs.

Combined, the short throw ratio and significant lens shift help produce an optimized viewing angle that achieves virtually no distortion right up to the very edge of the image. A deep depth of focus (F2.7) allows 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 – exhibiting significantly low TV distortion. This results in beautiful images with smooth edges.

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

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).

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.



Picture by Picture
A Picture by Picture feature enables two high-quality images from two digital inputs (via DVI and HDMI) to be projected simultaneously side-by-side within the projected image.





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



This projector is equipped with a built-in HDBaseT receiver facilitating uncompressed HD video, audio and control signals to be transmitted over one single LAN cable with a maximum distance of 100m. This reduces complex wiring schemes used for a typical setup as well as maximizing long cable runs with minimal image quality degradation.

HDBaseT operation may vary when connected to other third-party HDBaseT devices. Please consult with a Canon representative for a full compatibility list.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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*4


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.

Vivid Photo: Ideal for rendering rich color brilliantly and reproducing skin tones naturally.

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

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

Cinema: Ideal for viewing theatrical image content in a room without lighting.

5 Customizable Modes: Ideal for custom set-ups. Provides up to 5 user-selected combinations of image quality settings that can be stored in the memory and selected as an image mode.


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:



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.

Mosquito Noise Reduction: This feature eliminates "mosquito noise" exclusively from still images.

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.

Lamp Control: This setting suppresses the amount of luminance by reducing the lamp power when the input image signal is of an all-black image. It will also improve the contrast ratio.



Lamp Mode
Allows the user to select either Full Power to project images at full brightness, or Power Saver which reduces lamp brightness to save energy.



This projector includes Canon's latest Motion Blur Reduction*5 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.

Connections include: HDMI, DVI-I, and analog RGB computer connectors; a VGA connector; a LAN connection terminal for wired transmission of image and audio signals from a PC; stereo audio inputs, and an audio output for connecting to external speakers or a sound system (the projector includes a built-in five-watt speaker). Industry-standard control and networking inputs include a network-ready RJ-45 port enabling authorized users to manage and control multiple projectors from any PC on a network (Gigabit data transfer speeds are supported), an RS-232 serial connection for monitoring the projector locally through a third-party control system, a USB Type A port for easy installation of firmware upgrades, a mini-jack for connecting an optional hand-held wired remote controller and a built-in HDBaseT receiver.

Compatibility with Crestron, AMX Device Discovery and Extron helps ensure seamless integration into most systems or infrastructures and smooth network management. Support for PJLink also makes it possible to control and monitor the projector over a network – this feature is ideal for observing lamp hours, usage and much more.

Built-in network multi projection (NMPJ) function and Wi-Fi® connectivity enable selective sharing of visual content from one or more PCs and laptops, wirelessly or over LAN. Four NMPJ modes enable selective sharing of visual information:


Direct Mode: In this mode the user can connect directly to the projector using a network cable or can connect directly to the network where the projector is located. The user can connect 1 PC and use 1 projector.

Meeting Mode: This mode is for sharing materials among all meeting attendees. It also enables remote operation and sharing via the internet between bases in different locations. The benefit of this mode is that each PC can select multiple projectors as projector operation is enabled from each PC. This mode allows the user to connect up to 10 PCs and 6 projectors on an infrastructure connection, or 5 PCs and 1 projector on a wireless connection.

Classroom Mode: The instructor can decide which attendee PCs will connect with which projectors and can switch the attendee projections as the class progresses. The benefit of this mode is that one PC (instructor) selects which PCs (students) to project from and controls the projectors. Certain operations are enabled from the client PCs (students), however they're limited. In this mode the user can connect up to 10 PCs and 6 projectors via an infrastructure connection, or 5 PCs and 1 projector via a wireless connection.

Broadcast Mode: This mode enables one PC to connect up to 12 projectors (infrastructure connection only).
