Canon Europe today announced the launch of the LX-4K3500Z, its first large venue 4K projector. This DLP-based 4K laser projector is compatible with a new set of Canon-branded lenses (capable of projecting from 2m-176m) an it’s aimed at the rental and staging market and high-end install markets.
The LX-4K3500Z includes 10-bit color processing that hits the DCI-P3 (digital cinema standards) color space, without any additional filters. Featuring a laser optical system, which includes two color light sources and a phosphor wheel, the LX-4K3500Z is capable of a wide color gamut, including HDR and has a 30,000:1 contrast ratio spec.
As Canon’s highest brightness projector launched to date, the LX-4K3500Z four different laser light output modes, including constant brightness and manual adjustment, which can be calibrated in 1% increments from 30%-100% delivering longer life and greater control of light output for blending. It’s a 3-chips DLP (using the 1.38” DMD) with native resolution of 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) and also has a DICOM sim mode for accurately displaying grey scale used in medical education and large medical conferences.
Supporting complex environments, such as those in awkward or challenging spaces, the LX-4K3500Z can be installed in any 360-degree orientation, as well as offering portrait mode. Designed for projection in auditoriums, the LX-4K3500Z has four corner keystone correction, corner adjustment and geometry correction software to eliminate distortion when projecting onto uneven surfaces, such as wall corners and spherical spaces.
The optical unit and light source within the LX-4K3500Z are sealed to protect against dust, while a circulated cooling system employs a combination of water and air cooling for reliable projection. The use of an interlocking comb structure in the space between the lens unit and projector body helps prevent dust from entering through the lens. Thanks to this dust-resistant design, this projector is durable, even in environments where dust accumulates easily, such as in permanent installations within auditoriums and arenas. A laser light source and filter-free composition provides a life span of 20,000 hours in ‘normal’ mode, with minimal maintenance time or lamps to replace. Facilitating easy installation and greater network connectivity and control, the LX-4K3500Z has a wide range of connectivity options including HDMI, DP, 3GHD / SDI, plus HDBaseT, RS232C and LAN ports.
The LX-4K3500Z will be on display for the first time in Europe at ISE 2019, on the Canon stand Hall 1, Stand N-30 and here are all the specs.
