Native 4K Resolution (4096 x 2400) Provides Immersive, Highly Detailed Images
Eye-opening 4K resolution produces incredibly detailed, high-impact images that are significantly sharper and more true to life than lower resolutions.

Up to 5000 Lumens* and 3000:1 Contrast Ratio Delivers Bright, Engaging Images
The REALiS 4K501ST projects bright 5000 lumen*1 images with up to a 3000:1 contrast ratio that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color. The results are images with crisp depth and dimension, and amazing color accuracy, which is critical to those with discerning needs.

Compact and Lightweight Design with 1.0-1.3:1 Shorter Throw Ratio for Application Flexibility
Canon’s cutting-edge optical design achieves 4K resolution and 5000 lumen brightness within an incredibly compact projector size. The innovative AISYS Optical Engine makes this possible by independently controlling light in both vertical and horizontal directions to achieve both high brightness and contrast. Combined with the small size of the LCOS panels (just 0.76 inches), the projector is incredibly compact while delivering outstanding performance. At a height of 6.9 inches, width of 18.5 inches and weight of 39.6 pounds, it’s smaller and lighter than many others. In addition, its shorter throw ratio of 1.0–1.3:1 means a 10-foot wide image can be projected from an approximate distance of only 10 feet away, allowing for large images in tight spaces.

LCOS Technology with AISYS-enhancement Offers Seamless Images with Exceptional Color Reproduction
The exceptional imaging performance of the REALiS 4K501ST starts with Canon's proprietary AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) Optical Engine, which utilizes advanced light management technology to maximize the contrast and brightness benefits of the projector's LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) display panels, which deliver superior reflectivity and durability while accomplishing high luminance. With Canon LCOS, the pixels are close together producing images that are virtually seamless, where with other technologies there may be grid lines visible from their larger spaces between pixels. The result with the 4K501ST is an immersive 4K resolution picture with crisp detail and true-to-life color.

Specialized Genuine Canon Optics Provide Exceptional Image Quality with Minimal Image Distortion and Consistent Brightness Throughout the 1.3x Zoom Range
Drawing on Canon’s advanced optical expertise, the specialized 4K short focus wide zoom lens projects virtually distortion-free 4096 x 2400 resolution images.

Dual Image Engines Execute Highly Complex Image Processing for Uncompressed 4K 60p Playback and Upscaling of Non-4K Content
Canon’s advanced, powerful dual image processing engines produce exceptional reproduction of virtually all content. The engines also allow the projector to offer a variety of features that help enhance the quality of still and motion images, making them more realistic and impactful.

Multiple Image Modes including DICOM Simulation Mode*, and Advanced Adjustment Options for Optimal Image Quality Reproduction
The REALiS 4K501ST offers extensive image quality adjustments to suit a wide range of user preferences. This includes six different pre-set Image Modes (and three additional customizable Image Modes), and many advanced adjustments that allow users to customize image and color characteristics to fulfill their specific imaging needs.

Motion Blur Reduction*
The REALiS 4K501ST includes Canon’s latest Motion Blur Reduction feature*2 for improved visibility when movement is fast. By inserting extra frames to video content, motion blur is reduced and the clarity of graphics and text on fast-moving objects is preserved. Three different modes (Strong, Low and Off) are included for flexibility, with each depending on the level of movement and type of video content.

Installation Versatility with Motorized Lens Shift, 360-degree Vertical Installation*, 4-Point Keystone Correction and More Install-Friendly Functions

Advanced Professional Installation Settings including Marginal Focus, Built-in Edge Blending and Advanced Registration
A variety of advanced installation settings provide added customization options for challenging installation areas.

Versatile Connectivity - HDMI 2.0 x2, DVI-D x4
Generous industry-standard connectivity on the REALiS 4K501ST includes two HDMI 2.0 inputs and four DVI inputs that permit various input options such as supporting single, stripe and cross configurations. The two HDMI 2.0 inputs support HDCP 2.2 encryption to ensure the latest compatibility, and help transmit 4K content such as Blu-ray at 60Hz over a single cable, offering practicality and convenience for film and TV usage, corporate and education, government and more.


Network Management Including Crestron Connectivity and AMX Device Discovery
Compatibility with Crestron, AMX Device Discovery and Extron helps ensure seamless integration into most systems or infrastructures and smooth network management. Support for PJLink also makes it possible to control and monitor the projector over a network – this feature is ideal for observing lamp hours, usage and much more.

Low Power Consumption and Simplified Maintenance
he power consumption of the REALiS 4K501ST is 0.12 w/lm (600W/5000lm)*1. The REALiS 4K501ST offers multiple power-management settings that allow the user to preset stand-by durations, execute power operations and auto-assign functions to the power button.
