Containing all the technology needed for superior performance, as well as fast, easy, and quiet operation, the REALiS SX80 delivers more of what you need in a top-line projector.
Native SXGA+ Resolution (1400 x 1050)
To match the increasing demand for high resolution display technology, the REALiS SX80 features high resolution SXGA+, perfect for displaying crisp video, photographs, fine text, spreadsheets, CAD drawings, and engineering diagrams. Compared to SXGA, it offers a larger display range, capable of reproducing even the smallest details with razor sharp precision. In addition, the SX80 supports data produced on a wide screen laptop, projecting the entire screen in its true proportions, just as it appears on your screen.
Better Resolution: Crisp, clear display of text and diagrams
Resolution is approximately 1.9-times greater than conventional XGA projectors, making it possible to reproduce text as small as five points. Even word processor documents with small text and figures are clear and easy to read.
LCOS Technology with AISYS
With Canon LCOS projectors, you get all the brilliance and image sharpness of innovative LCOS technology in an ultra-portable and affordable projector unlike any others on the market. Its the right choice for displaying bright, big-screen images without darkening the conference room or classroom.
LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) has taken projectors to a whole new level. This new technology means higher resolution images, seamless images with no flickering or "screen door" effect, quick image response for better looking moving images, smooth rendition of fine lines, seamless photo reproduction, sharp display of small text, and crisp blacks.
Only Canon realizes the full potential of LCOS technology by combining it with our proprietary and improved third generation AISYS Engine, our patented optical light engine for achieving brightness and high contrast using LCOS panels. AISYS has three components: the illumination system, the color separation and combination system, and the LCOS panels. Only Canons innovative, breakthrough AISYS technology achieves the right balance of contrast, brightness and compact size to maximize the performance of LCOS. Plus, our advanced AISYS optical engine features new optical elements, redesigned polarizing beam splitters and reconfigured optical layout. The result are improved light efficiency, uniformity and expanded color space.
The AC lamp system of the REALiS SX80 and the AISYS optical system, the images you project are brighter with truer color. The purity of red and green is enhanced over that possible with conventional DC lamps giving a more life like depth to the colors on the screen. In addition, the lamp system boasts an extended operating life of up to 2000 hours in normal mode and up to 2500 hours in quiet mode.
LCOS, an improved third generation AISYS optical engine, the AC lamp system and 3000 lumens make the REALiS SX80 a superb high-performance projector like no other.
The REALiS SX80 projects with 3000 Lumens, delivering incredible image quality and brightness using the third generation AISYS Optical Engines new AC lamp system. The 900:1 contrast ratio ensures deep blacks and bright whites. Pure, high-contrast color reproduction creates images with crisp depth and dimension, ideally suited for conveying texture and materials. Colors remain crisp, with superior color balance, perfect for presentations incorporating high-quality visuals.
1.5x Zoom Lens
The REALiS SX80s 1.5x zoom lens suppresses the distortion of images to the maximum extent. Made possible by a lens design technology Canon has accumulated in the past, the new SX80 is able to project images more faithfully.
The lens also features a 10:0 lens offset, which maintains the lower edge of projected images. The lower edge of the projected image matches the optical axis of the lens. This permits projection of high-quality images without the deterioration in image quality caused by keystone correction.
You can easily change the screen size to accommodate various venues and/or applications. It is now easier to set up the projector perpendicular to the screen without having to tilt the projector, or use the keystone correction.
Advanced Color Management System
Your projection screen is your canvas with the REALiS SX80s unparalleled color control. An easy-to-use Graphical User Interface lets you adjust your palette of colors to paint the picture you want for your audience. The SX80s 6-axis (RGBCMY) color adjustment lets you fine-tune the hue and saturation of each of the primary and secondary colors. This high degree of control makes each projected image a masterpiece.
With Memory/Vivid Color Correction, you can adjust the degree of vividness of each of the primary colors (red, green, and blue) and each of the secondary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow). Choose between low, medium, and high to project the image the way you remember it.
HDMI Version 1.3 Deep Color
The REALiS SX80 is the first Canon projector equipped with an HDMI terminal (version 1.3 deep color), supporting full HD 1080p signals provided by HDTV capable satellite and cable boxes, as well as Blu-Ray players. Connect an HD capable satellite and cable boxes, digital camcorder or Blu-Ray player to the HDMI terminal for instant display of high-definition video
PC Free Presentations and PictBridge
The REALiS SX80 is designed to accommodate new styles of presentations. The built-in USB port allows for the connection of various media sources such as USB flash drives or PictBridge compatible cameras. Just plug in your flash drive or camera, and JPEG images are automatically re-sized and displayed.
Network Ready RJ-45 Port
To maximize the usability of the REALiS SX80, the new built-in network interface (RJ-45) enables centralized control and monitoring of multiple projector units from a networked PC. This makes it simple for an A/V team to operate ceiling mounted or remotely installed projectors from a PC screen, allowing fewer personnel to cover a larger service area.
The REALiS SX80 is compatible with industry-standard AMX, Crestron, and Extron controllers, making it possible to construct a sophisticated AV system. In addition, email alerts can be sent to the central PC to give notification of any malfunctions or service issues which may arise in a projector. The SX80 can also be externally operated through its RS-232 port.
Ease of Use and Flexibility
With dimensions of 13.0" W x 13.4" D x 4.8" H (332 x 340 x 121 mm) and a weight of only 11.5lbs (5.2 kg), the REALiS SX80 is an ultra-portable and compact projector thats easy to carry and set up, wherever you need it. And with an array of advanced and well-designed features, its also extremely easy to use.
Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction lets you project a perfect image by correcting for keystone distortion of +/- 20 degrees. Depending on your requirements, you can use it for rear-projection, or you can mount it on the ceiling with an optional Ceiling Mount Adapter.
The SX80s Auto Setup feature is quick and accurate. With the touch of a button, it only takes seconds to setup:
Auto Focus - your SX80 measures the distance to the screen and makes your projected image razor-sharp

Once its set up, operating your projector is easy with the help of Guidance Functions that display operating instructions in an on-screen window. A Graphical User Interface makes for easy operation, with three menus for quick access to display settings, image adjustments and system settings. Youre never more than three steps away from any adjustment you need to make! Plus, front and rear infrared sensors let you control your SX80 with a wireless remote from in front of or behind the projector.
In the classroom or office, the projectors Spotlight feature dims your image except for the area you want everyone to pay attention to.
