CANON has released the LX-MU800Z, the company’s first single-chip DLP Projector with a Laser-Phosphor light source, which delivers at maximum brightness 20,000 hours of operation to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO). Additional key features on the new LX-MU800Z projector include native WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution, a spec of up-to-8000 lumens, a dynamic contrast ratio up to 10,500:1, and 7 interchangeable lens options with motorized lens shift for installation flexibility.
This new LX-MU800Z Laser DLP Projector can be rotated 360 degrees at any angle on the vertical axis, and can be used to project in portrait applications. The LX-MU800Z projector also offers seven interchangeable lens opt and all lenses can be quickly installed and then removed with the push of a release button. For enhanced installation flexibility, the LX-MU800Z projector also provides motorized lens shift, which makes it possible to adjust the horizontal and vertical positioning of the projected image, as well as motorized zoom and focus, all of which can be easily adjusted by using the included remote. Additionally, the projector lens memory function can be used to store up to eight different custom lens positions, each including zoom, lens shift and focal length.
There are multiple built-in terminals, including HDMI, 3G-SDI, DVI-D, and a built-in HDBaseT receiver, allowing uncompressed HD video, audio and control signals to be transmitted over single LAN cable with a maximum distance up to 328 feet.
The LX-MU800Z projector is compatible with AMX, Crestron and Extron devices enabling control of multiple projectors on a network, and also supports PJLink, which enables users to control and monitor the projector over a network – a feature that is ideal for observing lamp hours, usage and more.
The Canon LX-MU800Z Laser DLP Projector will have an SLP of $28,000, including the LX-IL03ST lens, and available in the starting of July.
