Around the world, Canon products are synonymous with optical excellence, advanced image processing, and superb performance. And Canon projectors are no exception.
The family of Canon projectors includes the REALiS line of bright, high resolution, ultra-portable and affordable projectors. REALiS projectors combine the brilliance and sharpness of innovative LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) technology with Canon's proprietary AISYS light engine technology. The result is a unique set of advanced projectors that deliver exceptional image quality.
The SX60 features new, advanced AISYS technology - with improved light efficiency, uniformity, and expanded color space. At 2500 ANSI lumens, it is one of Canon's bright, ultra-portable, SXGA+ projectors. With its exceptional level of image quality, it is ideal for demanding professional applications and discerning home cinema buffs. Its 1.7x Ultra-Wide Powered Zoom Lens with Autofocus gives you the flexibility of the widest zoom range of any of Canon's projector lenses. Its super quiet (27dB) operation makes it great for the classroom and home cinema. And, its DVI-I terminal lets you project high quality video from satellite and digital cable boxes, as well as DVD players.
Realistic Image Quality
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.
The Sharpness You Expect
Razor-sharp images are yours with Canon's new REALiS SX60 projector. The SX60's SXGA+ resolution gives you the crispness of 1400x1050 lines of resolution. 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.
Canon Optical Performance
Project a positive image with Genuine Canon Optics. As with every camera or projector that Canon makes, the REALiS SX60 comes with optics of unparalleled excellence that give you a bright, crisp, clear image with no flare or distortion.
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 SX60 performs in a wide range of room settings, proving that there's more to portability than projector size.
Easy To Use Flexibility
With dimensions of 8.9" W x 13.2" D x 4.5" H (226 x 336 x 114mm) and a weight of only 10.1lbs (4.6kg), the SX60 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:
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.
The SX60's new Auto Setup feature is quick and accurate. With the touch of a button, it only takes seconds to setup:
- Auto Focus -- your SX60 measures the distance to the screen and makes your projected image razor-sharp
- Auto Input -- the projector automatically detects the input port
- Auto Keystone -- keystone correction is automatically applied
- Auto Screen Color Correction -- the projector automatically compensates for the color of the projection surface
All that brilliance and image quality means nothing if you don't have the right inputs. The REALiS SX60 gives you an impressive range of input options including:
- Analog PC
UXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA
- Digital PC
SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA
- DVI video
1080i, 1035i, 720p, 575p, 480p
- Component Video
1080i, 1035i, 720p, 575p, 575i, 480p, 480i
- Composite video and S-Video
NTSC, PAL, SECAM, NTSC 4.43, PAL-M, PAL-N
The SX60'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 SX60 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.)
Advanced Color Management
With the REALiS SX60, you can select between four Color Modes, each one designed for a different type of projection:
- 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 mode emphasizes gradation to produce realistic depth and dimension -- the best way to watch your favorite movie or home video
- Home Cinema mode controls brightness while enhancing contrast to a ratio of 2000:1; it's ideal for the watching movies in pitch-dark rooms
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.
