Canon has announced a pair of new projectors. The first is the WUX10, which claims to be the world’s first WUXGA LCOS Projector exceeding 1080p HDTV resolution at 1920 x 1200. That is the same resolution as a 24-inch LCD. The projector also uses LCOS technology. The contrast ratio for the WUX10 is 1000:1 and it will retail for $12,999 when it launches in October.

The REALiS SX80 is billed as the world’s first projector to offer PictBridge connectivity. The resolution for the SX80 is 1400 x 1050 and the contrast ratio is 900:1 with 3000 lumens of brightness. The SX80 will retail for $3,999 when it launches this month.

"We are seeing the world rapidly transitioning to high-resolution image display in every sector including HDTV, personal computers, DVDs and Web video, which raises the public's image-quality expectations," noted Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. "For this reason, presentation professionals need high-resolution, widescreen, large-image display solutions that are affordable and compact. Answering this need are Canon's new REALiS WUX10 and REALiS SX80 Multimedia Projectors, which are breakthrough products that are totally manufactured by Canon and engineered to meet the demands of displaying high-resolution digital imagery."
