CASIO projectors:
Two new Pro Series models with 4,000 ANSI lumens

Norderstedt, October 12, 2011 – CASIO’s Pro Series range has now been extended to include two new models XJ-H1700 and XJ-H1750. These models feature outstanding performance as they achieve a brightness of up to 4,000 ANSI lumens using the mercury-free hybrid laser & LED light source developed by CASIO. This light source is a further strong argument in favour of these projectors’ usage in large conference halls both in business and universities – without the need to use environmentally harmful mercury lamps. CASIO’s light source also has an extremely long life time of up to 20,000 hours, which is sufficient for around 10,000 two-hour presentations. Pleasing from a company’s point of view is the fact that costs are no longer incurred for up to nine mercury lamps, and there is no need to dispose of used lamps or carry out laborious maintenance work to replace lamps, in the case of ceiling installations, for example. This not only protects the environment, but also saves money and time.

CASIO’s Pro Series also features a wide variety of innovative functions such as the software application Presentation Draw, which registers movements of the Interactive Pointer1 , transmits them onto the projection surface in real time, thus allowing the user to write, scroll and draw directly onto the projection surface. The Mobi Show App2,3 enables presentations on mobile telephones or tablet PCs to be directly transmitted to the projector via WLAN. All models are also able to project 3D images4 and feature a variety of different connection types, including an HDMI port.

1 Presentation Draw and the interactive pointer are available as an option.
2 Function available in selected models. Read detailed product description for information.
3 Mobi Show is a registered trademark of AWIND Inc. in Taiwan and/or other countries.
4 3D projections cannot be used together with the HDMI input, optional active-shutter glasses necessary.
