The new member of Canon’s XEED Medical portfolio can also be used with the AcuScreenPRO system, offering precise calibration by optimising the projected image according to the unique ambient conditions of a particular environment.

The XEED SX7 Mark II Medical features an ultra-bright 4000 lumens image with native SXGA+ resolution (1400 x 1050 pixels) and a 1000:1 contrast ratio for rich blacks and smooth greyscale gradation. Weighing just 4.8kg, the XEED SX7 Mark II Medical is compact and portable, making it ideal for displaying case studies at medical conferences or lectures.

The XEED SX7 Mark II Medical simulates the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard with 21 greyscale presets which can be changed to optimise the image display according to the ambient light conditions in the room. This allows the projector to display the highest possible image quality in a variety of different rooms, with variable light conditions such as conference halls, medical schools and hospital meeting rooms.

The company’s Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) panel technology also allows much more detailed image rendering and eliminates the ‘lattice’ and ‘rainbow’ effects experienced with LCD and DLP projectors. This allows the audience to more easily identify the subtle shadows or anomalies illustrating the case in discussion, even from a distance.
