    Detailed Features

    Compact, high-brightness installation projector

    The XEED WX520 is Canon’s brightest, most compact WXGA+ installation projector. Use it to project bright, clear, vibrant images, whatever the throw distance.

    Consistently* bright

    Enjoy an exceptional 5200 lumens and a contrast ratio of 2000:1 with Canon’s latest generation AISYS optical system. Brightness remains virtually unchanged across the entire zoom range of the 1.8x zoom projection lens, thanks to the constant F2.8 aperture. Unlike many competitor models, there’s virtually no drop-off towards the telephoto end of the range.

    Empowering imaging capabilities

    An all-new imaging processor enhances image quality and offers built-in edge blending with registration adjustment: perfect for multi-display environments. Picture-by-picture is supported from two digital sources, making this model ideal for video-conferencing. Motion blur reduction keeps images sharp even during fast-moving video, while the 4-point keystone correction makes it possible to project from almost any angle. Native WXGA+ resolution (1440 x 900 pixels) is supported by LCOS display technology that projects outstandingly smooth, detailed images.

    Flexible, convenient operation

    With its integrated vertical and horizontal lens shift, the XEED WX520 is easy to install. The projector can be stacked or configured in a variety of ways, enabled by its flat top and clever feet mounting options.

    A choice of connectivity

    HDMI and DVI terminals let you connect digitally for unsurpassed image quality. Firmware can be updated quickly and easily via the projector’s USB port, which also allows direct projection from USB flash drives. The Network Multi-Projection (NMPJ) function offers easy projection over the LAN while Crestron RoomView® provides instant unified remote control and monitoring.

    Simple to maintain

    The XEED WX520 will enjoy a longer service life as a result of its new, more durable optical components. When used in ECO mode, the lamp lasts up to 5000 hours; while the easily accessible lamp and air filter can be replaced without uninstalling the projector.

    Exceptional energy efficiency

    The XEED WX520 offers the lowest power consumption in its class**, supplemented by the dedicated ECO button that activates the low-power lamp mode and other power-saving features.

    • *Brightness may decrease by up to 5%. Based on a single image size.
