Detailed Features

Short throw shiftable lens plus outstanding brightness

The unique XEED WX450ST is a superbly bright high-resolution compact installation multimedia projector. Its short throw Canon projection lens features an exceptionally wide range of vertical and horizontal lens shift. With a throw ratio of just 0.571:1, this all-new lens virtually eliminates distortion (typically 0.1%). It can project a 100" image from around one third of the distance of conventional projectors, at just 1.23 metres. Despite its short focal length, the lens projects images from 30" up to a large 300" diagonal in size. With both vertical and horizontal shift – including an exceptionally wide 77% vertical range – the projector can be discreetly located above or below the screen and is suitable for both front and rear projection.

Bright, fast-moving images

The latest AISYS optical system is Canon’s most efficient ever, delivering 4500 lumens of brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. So images are clear, bright and vivid – with the same outstandingly accurate colours and smooth image rendition you expect from the XEED range.

Next-generation image processing

Native WXGA+ resolution (1440 x 900 pixels) is supported by LCOS display technology that delivers stunning, perfectly smooth images. Alongside its professional-quality optics, the WX450ST’s new image processing engine is packed with installer-friendly features like hardware edge blending, on-board registration adjustment (to ensure perfect RGB panel alignment) and built-in test patterns. The picture-by-picture image display supports twin digital inputs, so it’s perfect for modern video-conferencing applications. The 4-Point Keystone Correction function helps project images from almost any angle with perfect geometry, while Motion Blur reduction keeps images sharp during fast-moving video playback.

Designed for flexible installation

The new flat-top chassis includes clever feet mounting options and is ideal for advanced multi-projector installations. Stacking, upward and downward projection are all easy to achieve.

A choice of connectivity

HDMI and DVI-I terminals offer digital input, while firmware is easy to update via the USB port, which also allows projection directly from USB flash drives. Crestron RoomView® enables instant unified remote control and monitoring, while the Network Multi-Projection (NMPJ) function allows easy projection over the LAN.

Long-lasting and energy efficient

The XEED WX450ST’s lamp lasts up to 5000 hours when used in ECO mode. A dedicated ECO button instantly engages the low-power lamp mode and other power-saving features for outstandingly energy-efficient operation.
