Native 4K DCI Resolution of 4096 x 2160 Provides Lifelike, Highly Detailed Images
Eye-opening 4K resolution produces incredibly detailed, high-impact images that are significantly sharper and more true-to-life than lower resolutions. At 4096 x 2160, Canon's 4K resolution generates a bigger, richer picture made up of more than 8.8 million pixels, meeting the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) standard for 4K cinema as well as the QFHD standard resolution (3840 x 2160) for 4K TV.

In comparison to popular Full HD (1920 x 1080), the REALiS 4K5020Z laser projector's native 4K resolution produces four times the resolution. This high resolution can help in a variety of applications ranging from viewing highly detailed works of art in a museum or gallery, to producing highly accurate video and images with a wide depth-of-field to get as close as possible to a real-life experience via a simulation system.

Up to 5000 Lumens and Up to 20,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio (Up to 3600:1 Native Contrast Ratio) Deliver Bright, Engaging Images
The REALiS 4K5020Z projects clear, bright images at up to 5000 lumens with a contrast ratio of up to 20,000:1 when the Dynamic Contrast function is used - and with a native contrast ratio of up to 3600:1. This helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color, clarity, depth and dimension for high-quality images. All white, all black. When Iris function is set to "Close 9".

Laser Light Source Provides Longevity, Versatile Installation and a Wide Color Range by Covering 99.9% of the sRGB Color Space
The projector's laser light source provides up to 20,000 hours in standard use of continuous, reliable, high-quality projection. The hours of operation can be nearly doubled when utilizing the Long Duration modes to up to 20 times longer than a conventional lamp's life. Because there is no lamp to replace, operation is virtually maintenance-free with minimal downtime, which is a key consideration for challenging and hard-to-reach installations. This keeps running costs relatively low when looking at the total life of the product. Other advantages of the laser light source include: Fast Boot Function When Fast Boot Function is set to ON, the startup time is reduced to virtually 2 seconds the next time the projector is started from a standby status.

Omnidirectional Projection Because this projector uses a laser light source instead of a conventional lamp, it can be installed at any angle on a 360 deg. axis facing in any direction. A Menu Rotation function also enhances portrait projection, allowing adjustment of the angle of the projector's menu up to 90 deg. left and right. Wider Color Gamut Because the laser light source produces a wide range of colors, the REALiS 4K5020Z covers 99.9% of the sRGB color space to deliver millions of colors. Quiet Modes Quiet Modes reduce the volume of projector operation to around 29 dB for more silent performance to reduce any potential of interfering with audible content.

LCoS Technology with AISYS-enhancement Provides Exceptional, Seamless Image Quality The exceptional imaging performance of this projector starts with Canon's proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine, which utilizes advanced light management technology to maximize the contrast and brightness benefits of the projector's LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display panels, delivering superior reflectivity and durability while accomplishing high luminance.

Canon's LCoS panels are relatively small in size, allowing for an overall compact projector that delivers high-resolution and high-quality results. With the LCoS panels, the pixels are close together, producing images that are virtually seamless, where with other technologies there may be grid lines visible from their larger spaces between pixels. The result with this projector is an exceptional 4K resolution picture with crisp detail and true-to-life color.

Dual Image Engines Execute Highly Complex Image Processing for Uncompressed 4K 60p Playback and Upscaling of Non-4K Content
Canon's advanced, powerful dual image processing engines produce exceptional reproduction of virtually all content. The engines also allow the projector to offer a variety of features that help enhance the quality of still and motion images, making them more realistic and impactful. 4K Video Playback at Up to 60p Smoothly reproduce uncompressed 4K video at up to 60 frames per second for a natural, fluid feel and highly detailed, true-to-life content. Upscaling Non-4K content will be maximized utilizing two upscaling technologies of BiCubic and Canon's proprietary Shape Trace, which can detect contours of an image in a diagonal direction and performs interpolation, resulting in a stunningly smooth image.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)
The REALiS 4K5020Z supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), exhibiting bright highlights and deep blacks for a wider dynamic range. The wider dynamic range expands the contrast and the color, both extremely important factors when it comes to image accuracy. Combined with highly detailed 4K resolution, this helps provide the ultimate viewing experience.

Multiple Image Modes including DICOM-Simulation Mode for Optimal Image Quality Reproduction
The projector includes pre-set Image Modes and additional customizable Image Modes to suit a wide range of user preferences and projection environments.

Multiple Image Modes
Image Modes provide different variations of color reproduction characteristics suitable for the image type and projection environment. They include:
