Casio releases new Green Slim and Signature models with lower power consumption

TOKYO, June 2, 2014 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of seven new high-brightness projectors that work without lamps. The new projectors, featuring the flagship XJ-A257 and XJ-M256 models, also offer better compatibility with smart devices such as tablets and smartphones.

In 2010, Casio launched a projector that delivered brightness of 2500 lumens without using a mercury lamp, using its original Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source. Since then, the company’s lineup of projectors has grown to include 3000-lumen models and models compatible with smart devices. Casio projectors have been well received for a wide range of applications ranging from business to education.

The seven new models are lamp-free projectors that make possible a new style of presentation by offering even better compatibility with smart devices. When using a smart device with the original multi-function C-Assist* application from Casio installed, the presenter no longer needs to stay near the projector or PC, and is free to move around the room while delivering a presentation with a wide variety of content.
* The Android and iOS versions of the application will be available from Google Play and the Apple App Store, respectively, in July 2014.
Main Features of the C-Assist Smart Device App
■PC remote operation enables users to operate a PC that is connected to the projector from a smart device
■Camera image projection allows users to project images captured by the camera of a smart device in real time
■Content projection enables users to project education or presentation materials from a smart device
■Projector remote operation makes it possible to operate the projector from a smart device

The new lineup includes the Green Slim models, XJ-A257, A247, and A147, which boast a profile of just 43 millimeters and a weight of 2.3 kilograms for outstanding portability. The Standard Models, XJ-M256, M246, M156, and M146, come with various interfaces. All the new projectors are equipped with internal memory (approximately 2 GB) for storing presentation content, making it possible to give presentations without a PC or USB memory device. They reduce environmental impact by not using a mercury lamp and also help lower total cost of ownership thanks to their light source, which lasts about 20,000 hours, and their power-saving performance.
