LX-MU500Z 5,000 Lumen Laser Projector

The LX-MU500Z projector unites the long-lasting benefits of laser projection with 5000 lumens of brightness and native WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution for image quality that will keep your audiences focused and engaged.

Convenient and practical as well as high-performing, the projector is well-suited to a variety of fields. Students will see the difference in classrooms or lecture halls, corporate users will appreciate the sharpness in conference halls or meeting rooms and digital signage will come to life with dynamic digital content.

Laser Projection for Simplified Maintenance
Dependable and durable, the laser light source offers a long projection life of up to 20,000 hours*1. Because there are no lamps or filters to replace, you can expect the LX-MU500Z to run continuously and virtually maintenance-free. To put that in perspective, if the projector ran for 8 hours every day it would keep going for 2500 days, or 7 years, representing a much lower total cost of ownership than conventional lamp projectors.

High Brightness & High-resolution Image Quality
The LX-MU500Z delivers native 1920 x 1200 WUXGA resolution for a high-definition widescreen picture, while 5000 lumens and a 50,000:1*2 contrast ratio ensure a clear, bright image - even in challenging environments. A range of Preset Image Modes including Standard, Presentation, sRGB, Movie, DICOM Simulation*3 and two customizable user modes make it easy to maximize the quality of the image for the material you are projecting.

Flexible Installation
Installation is convenient thanks to the LX-MU500Z's generous lens shift (±50% vertical, ±23% horizontal), plus a wide throw ratio of 1.36 - 2.18:1. Whether using the projector in classrooms or conference halls, it's easy to achieve the image you want. 360° positioning also allows both landscape or portrait orientation, making the projector flexible for digital signage in retail and museum settings.

Corner Adjustment

Allows the corners of the image to be independently adjusted to help ensure optimal image reproduction.

Connectivity is also versatile with dual HDMI ports as well as HDBaseT™ to simplify your connections with non-compressed HD video, audio and control signals that can be transmitted utilizing a single Ethernet cable over long distances of up to 328 feet. The LX-MU500Z also features an MHL interface (Mobile High Definition Link), so mobile content from a tablet or smartphone can be viewed directly onto the projected screen when connected via HDMI. AV network management systems are also supported; the projector is compatible with Crestron RoomView and AMX Device Discovery to help users minimize downtime and maximize productivity.

Connections include: HDMI, HDMI/MHL and analog RGB computer connectors; S-Video input; RCA inputs; and a LAN connection terminal which relays data to a built-in HDBaseT receiver for transmission of video and audio signals from a source device. Industry-standard control and networking inputs include a network-ready RJ-45 port enabling authorized users to manage and control multiple projectors from any PC on a network, an RS-232 serial connection for monitoring the projector locally through a third-party control system, a USB Type A port for power output and a USB mini B port for easy installation of firmware upgrades.

Peace of Mind
Backed by Canon's award-winning Professional Service & Support, the LX-MU500Z includes the Canon 5-Year Laser Projector Limited Warranty, as well as a 3-Year Advanced Warranty Exchange Service Program and a 3-Year Service Loaner Program for further peace of mind.

Canon Laser Projector Warranty
All Canon Laser Projectors offer peace of mind as they are backed by Canon USA's Laser Projector Limited Warranty, which guarantees that the projector will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for 5 years from the date of original purchase or 12,000 hours of use (whichever occurs first).

Advanced Warranty Exchange Service Program
The Canon Advanced Warranty Exchange Service Program provides you with enhanced warranty service in addition to traditional “mail-in” repair service. The exchange program provides a replacement unit in exchange for your eligible inoperative Canon Projector if repair service is required during the product's limited warranty period.

Service Loaner Program
The Canon Service Loaner Program provides a loaner product in the event that your eligible Canon Projector is in need of repair during the limited warranty period. The loaner projector may be used while your inoperative unit is being serviced via Canon's “mail-in” repair service.

This projector projects bright 5000 lumen images with a 50,000:1*2 contrast ratio that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and excellent color. They feature clear depth and dimension, and great color accuracy, which is critical to those with discerning needs.

The projector's laser light source provides up to 20,000 hours in standard use of continuous, reliable, high-quality projection. Operation is virtually maintenance-free with minimal downtime, as the light source doesn't require routine replacement. This keeps running costs relatively low when looking at the total life of the product – a key consideration for challenging and hard-to-reach installations.

Other advantages of the laser light source include installation flexibility and more.

360° Projection
Because this projector uses a laser light source instead of a conventional lamp it can be installed at any angle on a 360° axis facing in any direction.

Wider Color Gamut
Because the laser light source produces a wide range of colors, the projector covers the sRGB color space to deliver millions of colors.
