Canon REALIS SX50 LCD Multimedia Computer Video Projector - Be prepared to be dazzled by the world's brightest, most portable, most affordable SXGA+ projector. Canon has built its exclusive AISYS optical engine into the heart of the Realis SX50 projector. Behind the crisp, bright images of the Realis SX50 is the heart of the projector: Canon's exclusive AISYS technology. While other projectors come with LCOS technology, only Canon combines LCOS with its innovative, breakthrough AISYS illumination technology. Only AISYS achieves the right balance of contrast, brightness and compact size to maximize the performance of LCOS. The result is an exceptionally bright, sharp image from an affordable, portable SXGA+ projector. With a long list of features and accessories, the SX50 delivers those images with flexibility, versatility and effortless operation. The HDTV compatible SX50 displays true 16:9 HDTV broadcast images (720p), giving your audience a truly cinematic experience. Not only that, the projector's 2:3 Pulldown feature on Progressive Scan images results in video with the natural look of film. Brightness at an impressive 2500 ANSI lumens delivers a theater-like experience at your home or office. Yet it's small enough to carry with you virtually anywhere.

From the Manufacturer
Razor-sharp images are yours with Canon's new Realis SX50 projector. Going beyond XGA and SXGA, the SX50's SXGA+ gives you the stunning crispness of 1,400 x 1,050 lines of resolution, letting you keep pace with the increasing resolution of your notebook computer display. Not only that, but the SX50 lets you display true 16:9 high definition broadcast images, as well as compressed UXGA.
With Canon's first LCOS projector, you get all the brilliance and image sharpness of LCOS technology, but in a portable and affordable projector unlike any other on the market. LCOS--Liquid Crystal On Silicon--has taken projectors to a whole new level. This new technology means higher resolution images, seamless images with no flickering or "screen door" effect, quick image response for better looking moving images, and better display of text. Only Canon realizes the full potential of LCOS technology by combining it with proprietary AISYS Engine, the patented optical light engine for achieving brightness and high contrast using LCOS panels. It is this combination that makes the Realis SX50 a projector like no other.
When you have to project over large distances or in a bright setting, the SX50 has the power you need. Not only does it feature the bright performance of LCOS and AISYS technologies, it's also packing an impressive 2500 ANSI lumens. The 1.7x ultra-wide zoom lens also lets you project in a variety of settings. It gives you a 40-inch screen from a very short 3.9 feet, all the way to a 100-inch screen from 9.8 feet. And if that's not enough, the digital zoom feature gives you an additional zoom range of 0.5X to 12X. It's the perfect blend of quality and versatility. Make your next presentation a high definition, widescreen experience. The HDTV compatible SX50 displays true 16:9 HDTV broadcast images (720p), giving your audience a truly cinematic experience.
You control various functions of the projector through a graphical user interface designed to be user-friendly. Three menus give you quick access to display settings, image adjustments, and system settings. And a well thought-out command hierarchy means you're never more than three steps away from any adjustment or operation you need to make. As a result, the SX50 is fast and easy to operate. The projector's ease of use also comes from such features as the wireless IR remote control with illuminated keys. Canon even makes it easy to hook up your projector by placing all connectors on one side.
