The Canon REALiS SX800 is an entry-level projector similar to the Canon REALiS SX60. Like the SX60, the SX800 uses LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) technology and Canon's proprietary AISYS optical engine to provide it with high quality image projection. However, the SX800 lacks some of the SX60's features and functionality, namely its 1.7x Ultra-Wide Powered Zoom Lens and 26dB operating volume, but brings improved brightness to the table at 3000 Lumens (as opposed to the SX60's 2500 Lumens).
The REALiS SX800's LCOS technology allows it to project high resolution images seamlessly with no flickering, allowing for quicker image response, smoother rendition of fine lines and sharper display of small text. Its AISYS light engine also ensures improved optical performance through the utilization of new optical elements, redesigned polarizing beam splitters, and a reconfigured optical layout, resulting in improved light efficiency and expanded color space. Additionally, the REALiS SX800's brightness level of 3000 Lumens allows for a contrast ratio of 900:1 for improved display quality.
