Native 4K DCI Resolution of 4096 x 2160 Provides Lifelike, 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.

At 4096 x 2160, Canon's 4K resolution generates a bigger, richer picture made up of more than 8.8 million pixels, meeting the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) standard for 4K cinema as well as the QFHD standard resolution (3840 x 2160) for 4K TV. In comparison to popular Full HD (1920 x 1080), the REALiS 4K5020Z laser projector's native 4K resolution produces four times the resolution.

This high resolution can help in a variety of applications ranging from viewing highly detailed works of art in a museum or gallery, to producing highly accurate video and images with a wide depth-of-field to get as close as possible to a real-life experience via a simulation system.


Up to 5000 Lumens and Up to 20,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio (Up to 3600:1 Native Contrast Ratio)*2 Deliver Bright, Engaging Images

The REALiS 4K5020Z projects clear, bright images at up to 5000 lumens with a contrast ratio of up to 20,000:1 when the Dynamic Contrast function is used – and with a native contrast ratio of up to 3600:1*2. This helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color, clarity, depth and dimension for high-quality images. *2 All white, all black. When Iris function is set to “Close 9”.


Laser Light Source Provides Longevity, Versatile Installation and a Wide Color Range by Covering 99.9% of the sRGB Color Space

The projector's laser light source provides up to 20,000*4 hours in standard use of continuous, reliable, high-quality projection. The hours of operation can be nearly doubled when utilizing the Long Duration modes to up to 20 times longer than a conventional lamp's life. Because there is no lamp to replace, operation is virtually maintenance-free with minimal downtime, which is a key consideration for challenging and hard-to-reach installations. This keeps running costs relatively low when looking at the total life of the product.

LCOS Technology with AISYS-enhancement Provides Exceptional, Seamless Image Quality

The exceptional imaging performance of this projector 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, delivering superior reflectivity and durability while accomplishing high luminance.

Canon's LCOS panels are relatively small in size, allowing for an overall compact projector that delivers high-resolution and high-quality results. With the LCOS panels, 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 this projector is an exceptional 4K resolution picture with crisp detail and true-to-life color.

Seven Optional Genuine Canon Interchangeable Lenses with Spigot Lens Mount System and Expanded Lens Shift, including New RS-SL07RST 4K Standard Zoom Lens

Seven optional interchangeable Genuine Canon lenses enable a wide variety of applications for exceptional image quality and flexibility. A spigot lens mount system is designed so that the lens can be quickly and securely installed in virtually seconds.

Canon has introduced the newest addition to its family of Genuine Canon interchangeable lenses, the all-new RS-SL07RST 4K Standard Zoom Lens*3, which supports curved surface projection on domed ceilings and other unique installations. The lens features Canon's “Red Line” seal of excellent performance, certifying the RS-SL07RST as an extremely high-quality 4K lens. Using Ultra-low Dispersion glass, the lens projects high-resolution images with reduced color shift and minimal color bleeding. Its innovative Marginal Focus feature allows for accurate projection onto a spherical surface. In addition, it features a 1.34–2.35:1 throw ratio and a generous lens shift of ±73% vertical and ±11% horizontal*7.

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.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)

The REALiS 4K5020Z supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), exhibiting bright highlights and deep blacks for a wider dynamic range. The wider dynamic range expands the contrast and the color, both extremely important factors when it comes to image accuracy. Combined with highly detailed 4K resolution, this helps provide the ultimate viewing experience.

Advanced Professional Calibration Settings Ensure Image Quality is Maximized

Periodical calibration ensures maximum color and brightness performance. Canon's internal sensors make this process simple, adjusting gamma and brightness back to the original specification.
