SXGA+ Resolution
Ideally engineered for professional photographers, the Canon Realis SX80 Mark II D projector features Super High Resolution 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), for display of exceptional color and intricate detail. Compared to mainstream projectors which offer XGA resolution (1024 x 768), the Realis SX80 Mark II D's SXGA+ resolution provides an expanded display range, capable of reproducing even the smallest details with razor sharp precision. SXGA+ can also display true 16:9 high definition broadcast images. Professional photographers can display and present incredibly realistic images with large screen impact using the Realis SX80 Mark II D.
LCOS Technology
Three LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) panels -- red, green and blue -- allow the SX80 Mark II D projector to produce its smooth picture quality. 90% of panel surface area is active, compared to approximately 60% of typical LCD panels: gaps between the transmissive LCD pixels used in conventional projectors result in images appearing as though covered in a fine mesh. With virtually no gaps between the pixels of LCOS panels, images produced are seamless: diagonal lines, fine details and text in presentations are reproduced with outstanding clarity.

The liquid crystals allow LCOS projectors to reproduce fine gradients across the entire brightness range, ensuring subtle gradations are rendered clearly with exceptionally smooth grey scale displays. This technology means higher resolution images, seamless images with no flickering or "screen door" effect, quick image response for better looking moving images, and better display of text. Only Canon realizes the full potential of LCOS technology by combining it with their proprietary AISYS Engine, a patented optical light engine for achieving brightness and high contrast using LCOS panels.


LCOS technology produces lattice-free, seamless images, while the LCD projector's "screen door effect" impacts negatively on the display of faithful color and intricate detail.

Canon AISYS Technology
Exclusive AISYS Technology
To overcome the cumbersome size and high cost of traditional LCOS projectors, Canon developed AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System), a unique optical illumination system incorporating LCOS technology into a remarkably compact body. By optimizing the light from the projector's lamp in relation to the characteristics of the LCOS panels and PBSs (Polarization Beam Splitter), AISYS achieves a lightweight and compact chassis without compromising on brightness and contrast.

This patented, proprietary optical technology makes it possible to achieve both the high brightness of 3500 ANSI Lumens and a contrast ratio of 1000:1 while also reducing projector size. It allows the Realis SX80 Mark II D to fully unlock the performance of LCOS, which has major advantages over traditional projection methods, including higher (SXGA+) resolution, seamless imagery, enhanced performance on motion images, and superior display of text.

Canon's proprietary AISYS optical system has been improved. This effectively boosts image quality and brightness, while maintaining the right balance of contrast and compact size to maximize affordability for users who require exceptional detail. This new, highly evolved version of the AISYS optical system is incorporated in the SX80 Mark II D, SX80 Mark II D0, and X600 multimedia projectors.

Precision Canon 1.5X Powered Zoom Lens With Autofocus
Nearly 70 years of expertise in designing and crafting precision lenses for photography, broadcast TV cameras, and camcorders goes into every lens Canon manufactures. The Realis SX80 Mark II D's lens offers a wide zoom range, an impressively short throw distance, and produces images with superior color and clarity. The powered 1.5x zoom lens can be adjusted via remote control, and allows for flexible placement of the projector -- achieving strong magnification with little distortion throughout the zoom range.

The 1.5x Powered Zoom Lens has been engineered to accommodate LCOS reflective LCD panels. And, with Canon's 10:0 lens offset, REALiS projectors can now be pulled back even further without the image hitting the table or the ceiling. This minimizes the need for keystone correction. It gives you a 40" screen from a very short 3.9 feet, all the way to a 100" screen from 9.8 feet. It's the perfect blend of quality and versatility.

3000 ANSI Lumens
When you have to project over large distances or in a bright setting, the Realis SX80 Mark II D has the power you need. Not only does it feature the bright performance of LCOS and AISYS technology, it's also packing an impressive 3000 ANSI lumens. The SX80 Mark II D's high luminosity enables it to clearly display large images even in lighted-venue environments, which can include shopping malls and museum exhibits.
Advanced Color Management With Color Modes
With this Realis projector, you can select between several Color Modes, each one designed for a different type of projection.
  • Standard mode gives you images closely resembling the original, with an emphasis on white areas
  • Presentation mode increases contrast between bright and dark areas, making it easier to see detailed diagrams and text
  • sRGB mode is optimized for sRGB images, which includes those produced by many digital cameras
  • Movie mode is for the display of video images, clearly defining gradations and improving color reproduction
  • Photo mode is for the display of digital images, clearly defining gradations and improving color reproduction
  • DICOM Simulation mode
DICOM Simulation Mode
Designed to reproduce medical images with crisp and clear detail, the Realis SX80 Mark II D projector is perfect for displaying the fine detail required when viewing X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs from a PACS workstation. The Realis SX80 Mark II D displays images to the DICOM 14 standard. It features easy calibration with 21 preset levels of gamma. The SX80 Mark II D is perfect for medical training and education.
Amazing Color Quality and Control: Canon Color Management System (CMS)
Canon's high-accuracy Color Management System (CMS) ensures accurate color reproduction for an extended color space and compensates for color variances due to lighting differences. The advantage: true HD-quality color even in the toughest conditions.
Crisp Blacks Enhance Shadow Detail
Precise control prevents the excess leakage of light, producing rich, detailed gradations even in the shadowed portions of images -- recreating depth and dimension with stunning drama and realism.
6-Axis Color Adjustments
A 6-Axis Color Adjustment function meets and exceeds the demands of professionals with demanding color requirements. Both hue and saturation can be adjusted independent of RGB and CMYK color axes.
Photo Image Mode
The Photo Image Mode allows users to easily make changes to improve the look and feel of the content being projected. Within this mode the Color Level and Color Temperature functions allow for fine-tuning of both the intensity of colors and the color temperature by selecting from easy-to-use presets. In addition, the Photo Image Mode includes an Ambient Light function which can be used to compensate for lighting conditions for both the type of lighting (Tungsten, Fluorescent and Fluorescent H) and intensity (Low, Medium or High). The ambient light function is ideal for users displaying content and cannot control the lighting conditions -- such as educators speaking in classrooms or photographers showing their work in an art museum/gallery or at a seminar. The functions available in the Photo Image Mode allow users greater control of color reproduction and image quality.
Whisper Operation: 31 dB (Quiet Mode)
When you've sweated over every word in your presentation, you don't want anything competing for your audience's attention. That's why you'll love the Realis SX80 Mark II D. In Normal mode, the SX80 Mark II D runs at 35dB; and in Quiet mode, it runs at 31dB.
Off and Go
The Off and Go feature lets you power off and unplug without running the fan. The projector uses a built-in energy reserve to run the fans for its shutdown cycle. Ceiling mounted units can be switched on/off from a central control.
Digital Keystone Adjustment
If the projector is not aligned properly with the screen (perpendicular to it), keystoning can occur. This will create a displayed image with trapezoidal shape (narrower at the bottom than top, for example). With a projector as portable as the Realis SX80 Mark II D, you're sure to find yourself in less than perfect set ups. Keystone Correction lets you project a perfect image regardless. Automatic Keystone Correction is available on the vertical axis, correcting distortion up to ±20 degrees. You can also manually correct for keystone distortion of ±20 degrees vertically.
