ECOLOGY

Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source supporting high-brightness projection without mercury

CASIO has applied its unique new Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source to achieve breakthrough development of a mercury-free high-brightness projector. Adopting a new semiconductor-based light source system combining a blue laser, phosphor and a red LED, we have achieved both high-brightness performance enabling projection in well-lit rooms and environmental friendliness with mercury eliminated from the light source.

ECONOMY

Approximately 20,000-hour long-life light source with less brightness degradation

The light source’s life of approximately 20,000 hours far outshines that of conventional projectors that require mercury lamp replacement. It saves maintenance labor and contributes to a significant reduction in operating costs. Since brightness degradation is more gradual than with mercury lamps, moreover, it maintains vivid image quality through long-term use.

USABILITY

Startup as quick as 5-seconds* Fast ON & OFF switching for convenient usability

Projection at maximum brightness is achieved in as few as five seconds, and the time from startup to screen display is shortened dramatically, facilitating more effective use of limited time. No cooling down is necessary, moreover, when the power is turned OFF. Users can complete the process from setting up to packing up smartly and speedily.

* Except XJ-A series

VISIBILITY

Enhanced beauty and realism A further leap forward in color reproduction

The dramatic improvement in color purity achieved by the new light source has significantly improved color reproduction. Not only are the colors clearer and more beautiful, but the projected images also look brighter due to the visual effects of the high-purity colors. Users benefit from clearer, more powerful images than conventional projectors can achieve.

COMMITMENT TO USABILITY

Concern for today’s high environmental quality standards

CASIO has developed a light source with no mercury lamp to eliminate the release of mercury, a highly toxic element, and adopted energy- and resource-saving designs. Superior environmental performance is also achieved by innovations such as Intelligent Brightness Control, which adjusts the projection brightness automatically depending on the level of illumination in the surrounding environment and contributes to daily power savings.

Smart wireless presentations (C-Assist)

Wireless communication from a smartphone or tablet with the C-Assist dedicated app installed enables control of projected images, real-time projection of images from a camera, projection of browser pages and remote PC operation. The scope of available presentation styles is broadened dramatically.

  • Wireless presentation
  • Wireless camera
  • Browser projection
  • Simple PC remote control

Check OS versions compatible with the app on Google Play or the App Store.
* App functions and operating environments may be altered without prior notice.
* The app may not function on some smart device.

Wide-angle 2x zoom capability

The wide-angle 2x zoom lens boosts magnification to the highest level among data projectors.* This zoom capability enables the projector to project optimally sized images from close to the screen or farther away as well as to correct screen distortions resulting from the projector’s positioning automatically.
