New Canon XEED 4K600STZ laser projector produces crisp 4K images for a variety of installation applications

London, UK, 22 November 2016 – Canon Europe, world-leader in imaging solutions, today announces the launch of the Canon XEED 4K600STZ. Weighing in at just 26kg, this is the latest edition to Canon’s 4K installation projector range, delivering unrivalled 4K resolution and outstanding image quality in a highly compact design.

The compact and lightweight design of the XEED 4K600STZ delivers superior 4K image quality, improved brightness and functionality

An upgrade to the XEED 4K501ST model, the XEED 4K600STZ can project accurately onto curved or domed surfaces, even in portrait mode or using multiple blended images, all without losing focus. This makes it an ideal solution for a range of applications including advanced training simulators, design, museums and digital signage.

With native 4K (4096 x 2400) resolution and Canon’s long-life 6,000-lumen solid-state light source technology, lasting up to 40,000 hours of use (ultra-long life mode), the XEED 4K600STZ delivers outstanding 4K HDR images. In addition, Canon’s unique AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical system, along with the 4,000:1 native contrast ratio and 10,000:1 dynamic contrast, delivers deep, pure colours and true reproduction of black areas.

The XEED 4K600STZ also benefits from improved functionality with four DVI-D and two HDMI 2.0 inputs. This supports the projection of high-quality content from a variety of 4K sources at 60 Hz with a single HDMI cable, as well as the near-immediate 16.6 ms response time. With Creston compatibility, Wi-Fi, USB and Ethernet, powerful networking and remote operation options are also available.

Offering a precision 1.3x zoom 4K lens, the constant f/2.6 aperture of the XEED 4K600STZ also means the lens delivers consistent brightness throughout its zoom range. A 120-inch screen image can be projected from a distance of 2.7 metres thanks to the throw ratio of 1.0-1.3.

Andreas Herrnböck, European Business Development Manager Projector, Visual Communications, Canon Europe, says, “Today’s launch of the XEED 4K600STZ marks another milestone in Canon’s 4K installation range. It’s incredibly compact and lightweight design, combined with the brightness of 6,000 lumens, makes it the perfect solution for a variety of installation applications. This covers anything from simulation environments which demand ultra-fast refresh speeds and smooth motion, to museum installations that require a compact design and high resolution to create truly immersive experiences. With the launch of the XEED 4K600STZ, we continue to push the boundaries and offer more capabilities to support end-users with a variety of installation requirements.”

The XEED 4K600STZ will be available from Spring 2017.
