There are a huge number of projectors on the market today for a myriad of uses. Some of the tiny pico projectors suffer from poor brightness limiting their use. Larger dedicated projectors for home theater and business use typically cram in impressive features and are bright enough for large rooms. The new Canon REALiS SX7 Mark II LCOS projector is aimed at larger spaces.
The projector has 4000 lumens of light output and has a native resolution of 1400 x 1050. Canon uses a Photo Image Mode to let the user change the look and feel of projected images. Other features include Color Level and Color Temperature functions for fine-tuning the intensity of colors with pre-sets.
A special Ambient Light feature also lets the user adjust the projector for correct colors no matter what the light source in a room is. Other features include a 1.7x power zoom lens, DVI out, and an Off & Go system that lets you unplug and go as soon as the presentation is done without waiting for cool down. The projector will ship in April for $6,999.
