Five Casio Projectors Now TCO Certified
First Lamp-Free Projectors to Meet TCO Certified Criteria

TOKYO, August 8th, 2016 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that, effective July 13, 2016, five of its lamp-free projectors, including the XJ-F210WN, have been TCO Certified. TCO Certified is an international third-party sustainability certification for IT products administered by TCO Development, a non-profit organization based in Sweden. The five projectors meet the latest TCO Certified Projectors 2.0 criteria.

TCO Certified products meet life cycle criteria for environment, health and safety, ergonomics and socially responsible manufacturing. In order to be TCO Certified, products must undergo rigorous verification of multiple factors in all phases of the product life cycle, including socially responsible manufacturing during the manufacturing phase; safety, product lifetime, and energy efficiency during use; and elimination or reduction of hazardous substances and responsible end-of-life handling.

TCO Certified Projectors 2.0 criteria also require that products meet criteria for high-quality display image and be equipped with an Eco Mode that consumes less energy and reduces the acoustic noise level. Additionally, the projector and all assemblies and sub-assemblies of the product must not contain mercury or other hazardous substances, and the total amount of mercury used in the lamp must be declared.

Since 2010, Casio has been using laser and LED light sources in all of its projector models, eliminating any use of lamps that contain mercury. These five Casio models, newly released in 2016, are the first lamp-free projectors to be TCO Certified.

“We are proud to have declared that our projectors and light sources do not contain mercury. As a leading manufacturer of lamp-free projectors, we recognize our responsibility to reduce environmental impact by encouraging the shift away from mercury-lamp projectors and reducing CO2 emissions by decreasing power consumption. At Casio, we will continue to refine our original light source technologies to further advance our lamp-free projectors,” said Toshiyuki Iguchi, Executive Officer, Digital Signage Division, Casio Computer, Co., Ltd.

According to Futuresource Consulting Ltd., Casio holds a global market share of 73%* for solid state illumination (SSI) light source projectors with 2,500 lumens or more, which is bright enough to use in a fully lit room.
*Based on global sales volume by manufacturer from January to December 2015
