New Canon WUX500ST Delivers High Luminosity Short-throw Projection for Versatile Applications

    Compact in design, the WUX500ST is built to deliver bright and high resolution images of up to 5,000 lumens for a host of projection applications

    SINGAPORE, 12 December 2017 – Canon today launched the WUX500ST, a compact short-throw projector weighing approximately 6.3 kilograms which delivers a high brightness level of 5000 Iumens (lm) and WUXGA resolution. With a lens shift capability of up to 75 percent, the WUX500ST can be set up easily in both small and large spaces.

    “Designed to deliver optimal clarity in an exceptionally compact form, the WUX500ST is the ideal projection solution where space is a premium”, said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “With this short-throw projector, businesses and retailers can now enjoy superior performance spanning across wide-ranging applications.”

    High brightness for effective resource optimization
    Canon’s optical system AISYS in the WUX500ST controls light efficiently to deliver high quality images in a compact form factor. The WUX500ST can also be used for rear projection which enables efficient use of space, and can thus be set up easily for use in narrow spaces such as in small meeting rooms, event and roadshow booths.

    Freedom of installation with lens shift (maximum of 75 percent)
    The maximum lens shift of 75 percent enables big screen projection at an extremely close range, which provides the capability to replace a range of long throw projection applications that require extensive installation work such as long cabling due to the fact that the projector is a distance away from the screen. As such, the WUX500ST can also be used in big spaces like large conference halls, lecture meetings, hotel banquet rooms and university halls. In venues with spatial limitations, the WUX500ST can be stowed away at a lower angle of elevation (such as underneath conference tables or shop fronts for digital signage). With the function of lens shift, users are able to precisely adjust the projection image based on the projector’s position.

    Short throw design that prioritises the presenter
    With the ability to project from beyond the presenter’s line of sight, the WUX500ST significantly reduces vision fatigue as users will less likely catch the glare from the projection beam. This would also mean the presenter’s shadow is less likely to obscure the presentation materials.

    Pricing and Availability
    The WUX500ST is currently available at all Canon authorised dealers at the recommended retail price of $10,000.
