Product Specifications

The XEED SX60 delivers bright, high contrast projection for crystal clear presentations and movies. With SXGA+, near-silent operation and a Home Cinema mode, it's designed for both business and home use. The XEED SX60 uses LCOS panels with virtually no gaps between pixels to faithfully project seamless images. With native SXGA+ resolution (1400 x 1050 pixels), it produces precise, sharp images. 2, 500 lumens output ensures that your images are bright, even when projected from long throw distances or in daylight. Canon's Advanced AISYS optical system optimizes the projector's light path, achieving powerful output from a compact, lightweight chassis. The dedicated Home Cinema mode optimizes the projector settings for watching films in your living room. Contrast is boosted to 1500: 1 for incredibly rich colors, to provide maximum viewing enjoyment. The double frame-rate drive of the XEED SX60 LCOS panels ensures smooth reproduction of moving images, without any annoying flicker. When not in Home Cinema mode, the XEED SX60 still yields an impressively high 1000: 1 contrast ratio - with AISYS overcoming the contrast limitations of traditional LCOS projectors. Color tones are rich and vivid, blacks are deep and inky and incredible detail is provided throughout the entire image. In Quiet Mode the SX60 is virtually silent - a mere 27dBA. Fan noise is reduced to a whisper, so that presentations or films are not interrupted by an irritating background whir. With a motorized Canon 1.7x wide-angle zoom lens, large images can be projected from a short throwing distance, giving flexibility in projector placement. The lens is powered, so it can be operated from the remote control handset - you won't even need to leave the couch! The XEED SX60 can be set up with little effort. With Auto Focus, the projector detects its distance from the screen and focuses accordingly. Auto Screen Color Correction adjusts settings for optimal viewing on different screen colors. Vertical Keystone Correction is automatic, preventing trapezium distortion of the image. The SXGA+ resolution also ensures faithful reproduction of High Definition sources (720p/1080i). A connection via DVI (Digital Visual Interface) provides optimum image quality from digital sources, including HD images. The XEED SX60 supports the HDCP standard, for high quality playback of encrypted digital content.
