Canon @ DSE2014 – New Short-Throw LCOS Installation Projector
February 19, 2014 Brett Jones

We visited the Canon booth while at DSE 2014, and they had some nice, shiny, new projection technology for us. They were showing off a blended two projector set-up (shown above), using their new REALis WUX400ST projector.

This projector is great for professional installations (e.g. in a museum, art gallery etc.). It is a short-throw unit, so viewers can get up close and personal with your content without throwing shadows. It is LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) based, so it has a long (up to 4000 hour) lamp life. It has a massive mechanical lens shift, making it extremely flexible in mounting location. It can be mounted vertically, for a portrait aspect ratio.

Hopefully you have an installation sized budget as well, with the WUX400ST clocking in at $5499.00 retail and $4333.00 as the cheapest online price (right now).

Here is an example, using the WUX400ST projecting onto a mock store-front window. Notice the projector is mounted well above the window (due to the large mechanical lens shift).

Finally, it has built-in edge blending so you can achieve results like the featured image.
