<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> &#160;LCOS Reflective LCD Panel<br/> <br/> 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.<br/> <br/> <br/> Conventional LCD projector (XGA)<br/> <br/> <br/> AISYS-based projector (SXGA+)<br/> <br/> LCOS -- or 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.<br/> <br/> <br/> Conventional LCD projector (XGA)<br/> <br/> <br/> AISYS-based projector (SXGA+)<br/> <br/> But only Canon realizes the full potential of LCOS technology by combining it with our proprietary and improved AISYS Engine, our 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.<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> LCOS, an improved AISYS optical engine, and 3500 ANSI lumens make the REALiS SX6 a bright, high resolution projector like no other.<br/>
Razor-sharp images are yours with Canon's new REALiS SX6 projector. The SX6's SXGA+ gives you the crispness of 1400x1050 lines of resolution -- letting you keep pace with the increasing resolution of your notebook computer display. Plus, it lets you display 720P High Definition movies natively without compression. It even supports UXGA (compressed), along with WXGA (1366x768) which is used in today's wide screen laptops.<br/> <br/>
Project a positive image with Genuine Canon Optics. As with every camera or projector that Canon makes, the REALiS SX6 comes with optics of unparalleled excellence that give you a bright, crisp, clear image with no flare or distortion.<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> The 1.7x Ultra-Wide Powered Zoom Lens has the widest zoom range of any of Canon's projector lenses, giving you a diagonal screen size range of 40" (at a very short projection distance of 3.9') to 300". At a short 9.8' distance, you still get a 100" screen. And if that's not enough, the Digital Zoom feature gives you an additional zoom range of 1.5x to 12x. The REALiS SX6 performs in a wide range of room settings, proving that there's more to portability than projector size.<br/> <br/> In addition to this quality and flexibility, the SX6 boasts an impressive 1000:1 contrast ratio for sharp images and deep, rich colors -- even with ambient light. It also gives you 88% image uniformity for an even image from corner-to-corner.<br/> <br/> The optical performance of your SX6 doesn't stop there -- because the HDTV compatible SX6 displays true 16:9 HDTV broadcast images (720p), giving your audience a high-definition, widescreen experience. It's a cinematic experience that is further enhanced by the projector's 2:3 Pulldown feature on Progressive Scan images. The result is an image with the natural look of film.<br/> <br/>
With dimensions of 8.9" W x 13.2" D x 4.5" H (226 x 336 x 114mm) and a weight of only 10.4lbs (4.7kg), the SX6 is an ultra-portable and compact projector that's easy to carry and set up, wherever you need it. And with an array of advanced and well-designed features, it's also extremely easy to use:<br/> <br/> Keystone Correction lets you project a perfect image by correcting for keystone distortion of +/- 20 degrees horizontally or vertically. Plus, depending on your requirements, you can use it for rear-projection, or you can mount it on the ceiling with an optional Ceiling Mount Adapter.<br/> <br/> The SX6's new Auto Setup feature is quick and accurate. With the touch of a button, it only takes seconds to setup:<br/> Auto Focus -- your SX6 measures the distance to the screen and makes your projected image razor-sharp<br/> Auto Input -- the projector automatically detects the input port<br/> Auto Keystone -- keystone correction is automatically applied<br/> Auto Screen Color Correction -- the projector automatically compensates for the color of the projection surface<br/> <br/> <br/> Once it's set up, operating your projector is easy with the help of Guidance Functions that display operating instructions in an on-screen window. For example, it lets you know when your projector doesn't detect an input signal. A Graphical User Interface also makes for easy operation, with three menus for quick access to display settings, image adjustments and system settings. Its well thought-out command hierarchy means you're never more than three steps away from any adjustment or operation you need to make. Illuminated Input Indicators show your projector's connections and operational status at a glance. Plus, front and rear infrared sensors let you control your SX6 with a wireless remote from in front of or behind the projector.<br/> <br/> In the classroom or office, the projector's Spotlight feature dims your image except for the area you want everyone to pay attention to. That way, you can make sure your audience sees exactly what you want them to see.<br/> <br/> All the while, you can be sure your audience isn't distracted by fan noise. In Normal mode, the SX6 runs at 35dB; and in Quiet mode, it runs at 31dB. Plus, you won't be distracted because you can operate your SX6 effortlessly with the help of the Wireless IR Remote Control with illuminated keys, or with a USB mouse.<br/> <br/> The SX6 even has features that make it simple to turn off. You never have to wait for the projector to cool down before unplugging it and heading to your next meeting -- the projector's fan continues to operate, powered by an internal charging system. You can also turn the projector off simply by unplugging it -- a convenient feature when the projector is mounted on the ceiling and can't be operated directly. Finally, when you're finished using your SX6, you can use the Pin Code Lock and Function Key Lock to control its use.<br/> <br/> You can even operate your projector -- and receive alerts -- through a LAN with the optional Network Adapter.<br/> <br/> On top of all of that, the SX6 makes your life easier with its 3-year parts and labor warranty and 120-day lamp life warranty.<br/> <br/>
<br/> <br/> All that brilliance and image quality means nothing if you don't have the right inputs. The REALiS SX6 gives you an impressive range of input options including:<br/> Analog PC<br/> UXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA<br/> <br/> Digital PC<br/> SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA<br/> <br/> DVI video<br/> 1080i, 1035i, 720p, 575p, 480p<br/> <br/> Component Video<br/> 1080i, 1035i, 720p, 575p, 575i, 480p, 480i<br/> <br/> Composite video and S-Video<br/> NTSC, PAL, SECAM, NTSC 4.43, PAL-M, PAL-N<br/> The SX6's DVI-I terminal gives you a true digital connection -- from source to display. Since it conforms to HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection), you can use your SX6 to project high quality video from satellite and digital cable boxes, as well as DVD players -- without any reduction in image quality. (The terminal also accepts an analog signal from your laptop computer, and devices with a VGA terminal.)<br/> <br/>

Color Modes

With the REALiS SX6, you can select between four Color Modes, each one designed for a different type of projection:

Adobe RGB Example

sRGB Example

Adobe RGB is a larger color space, enabling the reproduction of more colors -- and is ideal for professional photographic studios, graphic design studios and printers who need to display images with accurate, uniform color. The SX6 gives you the widest range of Adobe RGB color space found in any projector.
Standard mode gives you images closely resembling the original, with an emphasis on white areas
Presentation mode increases contrast between bright and dark areas, making it easier to see detailed diagrams and text
sRGB mode is optimized for sRGB images, which includes those produced by many digital cameras
Movie & Photo mode is for the display of video and digital camera images, clearly defining gradations and improving color reproduction
You can also create custom settings by adjusting 7 different aspects (brightness, contrast, sharpness, gamma, and more) for each of the four image modes. That means 28 different custom image modes in total, and that means a perfect picture, no matter what you're viewing.

Complete Color Control

Your projection screen is your canvas with the SX6's unparalleled color control. An easy-to-use Graphical User Interface lets you adjust your palette of colors to paint the picture you want for your audience.

With Memory/Vivid Color Correction, you can adjust the degree of vividness of each of the primary colors (red, green, blue) and each of the secondary colors (cyan, magenta, yellow). Choose between low, medium, and high to project the image the way you remember it.

Plus, the projector's 6-axis (RGBCMY) Color Adjustment lets you fine-tune the hue and saturation of each of the primary and secondary colors. This high degree of control makes each projected image a masterpiece.
