Be prepared to be dazzled by the world's brightest, most portable, most affordable SXGA+ projector. Canon has built its exclusive AISYS optical engine into the heart of the Realis SX50 projector. With this patented technology, the SX50 delivers sharp, bright, brilliant images. With a long list of features and accessories, the SX50 delivers those images with flexibility, versatility and effortless operation.
The Image Sharpness of SXGA+ Razor-sharp images are yours with Canon's new Realis SX50 projector. Going beyond XGA and SXGA, the SX50's SXGA+ gives you the stunning crispness of 1400 x 1050 lines of resolution - letting you keep pace with the increasing resolution of your notebook computer display. Not only that, but the SX50 lets you display true 16:9 high definition broadcast images, as well as Compressed UXGA.
The Image Sharpness And Brightness of LCOS Technology - With Canon's first LCOS projector, you get all the brilliance and image sharpness of LCOS technology, but in a portable and affordable projector unlike any other on the market. LCOS - or 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, and better display of text.
AISYS - The Heart Of The SX50 - Behind the crisp, bright images of the Realis SX50 is the heart of the projector: Canon's exclusive AISYS technology. While other projectors come with LCOS technology, only Canon combines LCOS with its innovative, breakthrough AISYS illumination technology. Only AISYS achieves the right balance of contrast, brightness and compact size to maximize the performance of LCOS. The result is an exceptionally bright, sharp image from an affordable, portable SXGA+ projector.
More Brilliance - When you have to project over large distances or in a bright setting, the SX50 has the power you need. Not only does it feature the bright performance of LCOS and AISYS technology, it's also packing an impressive 2500 ANSI lumens.
The Canon Optical Quality And Versatility You'd Expect - Project a positive image with Genuine Canon Optics. As with every camera or projector that Canon makes, the Realis SX50 comes with optics of unparalleled excellence that give you a bright, crisp, clear image with no flare or distortion. The 1.7x Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens also lets you project in a variety of settings. It gives you a 40" screen from a very short 3.9', all the way to a 100" screen from 9.8'. And if that's not enough, the Digital Zoom feature gives you an additional zoom range of .5X to 12X. It's the perfect blend of quality and versatility.
Turn Your Screen Into The Big Screen - Make your next presentation a high definition, widescreen experience. The HDTV compatible SX50 displays true 16:9 HDTV broadcast images (720p), giving your audience a truly cinematic experience. Not only that, the projector's 2:3 Pulldown feature on Progressive Scan images results in video with the natural look of film.
Brilliance On A Budget - Thanks to Canon's proprietary AISYS technology, the portable Realis SX50 produces brilliant SXGA+ images at an affordable price.
A Mode for Any Image - Whether you're projecting a detailed technical presentation, images from your digital camera, or your favorite movie, the Realis SX50 gives you the best picture possible. You can also create custom settings by adjusting 7 different aspects - brightness, contrast, sharpness, gamma, and more - for each of the four image modes. That means 27 different custom image modes, and that means a perfect picture, no matter what you're viewing.
You can select between four image 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
- Cinema mode emphasizes gradation to produce realistic depth and dimension - the best way to watch your favorite movie or home video
Complete Color Control - Your projection screen is your canvas with the SX50's 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. With Memory/Vivid Color Correction, you can adjust the degree of vividness of each of the primary colors (red, green, blue) and each of the secondary colors (cyan, magenta, yellow). Choose between low, medium and high to project the image the way you remember it. What's more, the projector's 6 Axes 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.
It Goes Where You Go - With Canon's Realis SX50, you get an SXGA+ projector, minus the weight and size. All that brilliance and sharpness comes in a compact package 11.26" x 11.18" x 3.78" (286 x 284 x 96 mm) that's easy to carry and set up. And, at 8.6lbs (3.9kg), it's the lightest SXGA+ projector on the market.
It Looks As Good As What's On The Screen - With its rounded corners, clean lines and uncluttered look, the Realis SX50 will get as many compliments as what is on the screen.
Your Silent Partner - 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 SX50's Silent Mode that reduces fan noise to 34dB.
All The Input Options You Need - All that brilliance and image quality means nothing if you don't have the right inputs. The Realis SX50 gives you an impressive range of input options including:
- Computer: Digital: SXGA+,SXGA,XGA,SVGA,VGA / Analog: UXGA,SXGA+,SXGA,XGA,SVGA,VGA and Mac
- DVI video: 1080i, 1035i, 720p, 575p, 480p

The Key is Keystone Correction - With a projector as portable as the Realis SX50, you're sure to find yourself in less than perfect set ups. Keystone Correction lets you project a perfect image regardless - letting you correct for keystone distortion of +/- 20 degrees horizontally or vertically.
In The Spotlight - You can even make sure your audience sees exactly what you want them to see. The Realis SX50's Spotlight feature dims your image; except for the area you want everyone to pay attention to.
Design That Works - A variety of features make the Realis SX50 easy to use.
You control various functions of the projector through a Graphical User Interface designed to be user-friendly. Three menus give you quick access to display settings, image adjustments and system settings. And a well thought-out command hierarchy means you're never more than three steps away from any adjustment or operation you need to make. As a result, the SX50 is fast and easy to operate. The projector's ease of use also comes from such features as the Wireless IR Remote Control with illuminated keys. Canon even makes it easy to hook up your projector by placing all connectors on one side.
The List Of Features Goes On - A variety of features make your SX50 a versatile, flexible and easy to use projector, including:
PIN Code Lock and Key Lock provide simple password protection so you can control the use of your projector.
