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.
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.
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.
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.
