For outstanding reproduction of high resolution applications and HD video, the native WXGA+ (1440 x 900) resolution of the REALiS WX520 D delivers sharp rendering of images and pictures. This is especially important in the clear smooth projection of video and also in the exact reproduction of fine detail in still images. The 16:10 aspect ratio of WXGA+ gives the REALiS WX520 great versatility for graphics and data presentation as well as beautifully presented HD video.

The REALiS WX520 D features the newest version of Canon's Aspectual Illumination System, AISYS 5.0, producing amazing high brightness and deep, rich color from a surprisingly small footprint. AISYS works to maximize those image aspects in a compact design by improving contrast through the convergence of light from the source. Now evolved through five generations, continual advancement has allowed Canon to reduce the size of the projector while at the same time delivering greater brightness.

The REALiS WX520 D features a DICOM Simulation Mode* which allows for the viewing of monochrome digital X-says, CAT scans and MRIs with accurate grayscale rendition and precise detail. This special mode simulates accuracy and consistency in compliance with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standard, making it the ideal classroom or office venue projector for those in the medical education and training fields.

Project X-rays and other monochrome images with precise detail and clarity.

Project a bright, clear, strong image in a variety of lighting situations thanks to the impressive 5200 lumens rating of the REALiS WX520 D. Even in Power Saver Mode, the REALiS WX520 D delivers a powerful 4000 lumens. This, combined with an impressive 2000:1 contrast ratio, means that your audiences will see deep blacks, brilliant color and sharp detail.

The REALiS WX520 D delivers stunning image quality in an installation grade projector. The projector features a next generation Canon AISYS 5.0 optical engine for enhanced contrast and brightness through improved light management, working to maximize the imaging performance of the projector's advanced Canon LCOS display panels.

Canon's status as a producer of the highest quality lenses brings the experience of lens design excellence to the REALiS WX520 D's fixed F-stop lens. The projector's sophisticated lens maintains f2.8 throughout its focal length, virtually eliminating any brightness fall off throughout the entire zoom range.

You will find a host of image processing features built into the REALiS WX520 D to help maximize system performance and image display quality. The 4-point keystone adjustment provides more precise keystoning and a wider range of choices for diagonal projection, while reducing visually disturbing 'moiré' in the image. The projector's integrated micro digital lens shift allows for pixel precise adjustment of image position in addition to the physical lens shift. The included edge blending brings multi-projector imaging with an easy to use processor equipped with precision luminance ramp adjustment and pixel overlap control. Low TV distortion (0.1%) lenses mean clean, uniform edge blends both horizontally and vertically. True image calibration capability means maximum image quality directly in normally accessible menus.

Measuring 13.3" x 4.6" x 16.9" and weighing only 13 lbs, the REALiS WX520 D is one of the smallest projectors in its class, offering high end performance in a compact package. When you need a big, bright, clear image but your installation location is challenging, there's no need to compromise performance. In an auditorium, boardroom, conference room, or classroom, there will be a perfect spot for a REALiS WX520 D. Its convenient size means you can do multi-projector installations in places you never thought possible before. The light weight helps make securely mounting the REALiS WX520 easier and changing locations as needed less burdensome.

The REALiS WX520 D offers state of the art installation features in an LCOS projector. The projector's integrated mechanical lens shift increases placement flexibility, and the zoom lens provides a consistent f2.8 aperture with virtually no loss in brightness across the zoom.

The construction of the REALiS WX520 D provides a new heat management system with a flat top and bottom for flexible placement. Optional feet (not included) can also be installed on the top of the projector for inverted ceiling type mounts. Two units can be easily stacked, still fitting in a compact space while doubling light output.

The REALiS WX520 D can also be placed vertically pointing upward or downward with no ill effects for table type configurations. The new long life (12,000 hour) filter system addresses concerns about frequent filter changes, and a built-in test pattern makes configuration simpler without requiring a pattern generator or PC.

The REALiS WX520 D boasts the capability for true network management with a range of features, including full control over IP. The onboard LAN port allows for power management, usage tracking and control for up to 250 projectors on a network — a boon for schools or in trade show applications. Integrated Crestron RoomView support is also provided.

Another key network feature is the content streaming capability. Without dedicated software, one or more PCs can connect to the REALiS WX520 D over a standard LAN to share content. The system has a built-in processor to show up to 4 different screens simultaneously. This can be done within a room, or in multiple locations, simplifying installation.

Advanced multimedia functions include 4-point keystone correction, simultaneous Picture-by-Picture HDMI and DVI split-screen display and built-in edge blending with easy integration adjustment. It is also possible to use the REALiS WX520 D without a PC, thanks to the built-in USB memory stick slot and pre-installed JPEG image file support with one of the fastest load times in the industry. The built-in 5W speaker allows audio playback without an external audio component.

Not only will the REALiS WX520D take up less space, it will also be a quiet companion to your presentation, with a low fan noise rating of 38dB, going down to 32dB in Power Saver mode. Your audiences will be totally concentrated on what they see and only on what you want them to hear.

The REALiS WX520D projector is backed by Canon USA's Projector and Lamp Limited Warranty, which guarantees that the projector will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for 3 years from the date of original purchase, and the lamp for 120 days from the date of original purchase.
