Dubai – MENA Herald: Canon Middle East, world-leader in imaging solutions, today announces the launch of the Canon XEED 4K501ST, the latest addition to its 4K installation projector range and an upgrade to the XEED 4K500ST model.

The XEED 4K501ST benefits from advanced imaging technology to deliver outstanding resolution and image quality, in a compact and lightweight design ideal for simulation, design and exhibition environments. The new model also offers improved functionality with the addition of HDMI 2.0, which enables seamless and beautiful 4K video playback via a single cable.

The 4K501ST is ideal for environments that can benefit from high quality content from a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, such as medical conferences, lecture theatres or creative installations.

With a brightness of 5,000 lumens across the entire zoom range, the high definition 4,096 x 2,400 LCOS panel in the XEED 4K501ST also enables content to be projected at a resolution that exceeds 4K digital cinema. Canon’s unique and improved AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical system delivers deep, pure colours and true reproduction of black areas, with an increased contrast ratio for an enhanced viewing experience.

Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East and Canon Central and North Africa, comments:, “The launch of the XEED 4K500ST last year marked a significant step in our journey to becoming the leading company in the 5,000-10,000 lumen 4K installation market. With today’s launch of the XEED 4K501ST, we are opening up further installation opportunities to cater for a wider range of applications to help us achieve this aim.

The XEED 4K501ST is also supported by Canon’s 3 Year Lamp Warranty, which effectively eliminates the cost of replacement lamps for a three year period from new. This substantially lowers the running cost of the XEED 4K501ST, making it an attractive choice for a wide range of installations.

The 4K501ST will be available from October 2016.
