Canon USA Inc debuts the REALiS WUX4000 D installation liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) projector, the company’s first high-resolution installation projector for the medical education market.

The new projector includes a DICOM simulation mode that simulates the results of devices compliant with the DICOM Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. Hospitals use DICOM, a global information technology standard, to ensure the interoperability of systems used to produce, store, display, retrieve, or print medical images.

The inclusion of the DICOM simulation mode, which offers 21 different levels of grayscale gradation, and Canon’s fourth-generation proprietary AISYS-enhanced LCOS optical system help medical educators to clearly display detailed and intricate images to larger audiences without compromising image accuracy, according to the company. The REALiS WUX4000 D installation LCOS projector also offers a choice of three optional genuine Canon high-resolution interchangeable lenses for different throw distances and projection screen sizes and features a motorized lens shift, zoom, and focus for improved end user operability.
