Canon Makes Move Towards Higher-End Projector Market

Responding to the higher resolution and widescreen transition calls from rAVe and other industry visionaries in the market, Canon U.S.A. introduced the new REALiS SX800 projector.  Canon, not known as a leader in projection, might not have a winner with this model, but we think others will take note because they are manufacturing it themselves and it’s using a reflective 3LCD technology.

Featuring a specification claim of 3000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 900:1, the new Canon REALiS SX800 provides an alternative for XGA (1024 x 768) users seeking to upgrade to a higher resolution SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) projector – making native XGA, SXGA, SXGA+ and even 720p projection possible.

Priced at $3000, the reflective LCD REALiS SX800 weighs 11 pounds, includes 2:3 pull-down, lens shift and digital keystone correction and an interesting feature that they call Auto Flesh Tone that supposedly gives flesh tones a “more realistic” look.
