New Casio Projector is Lamp-Free

Using a laser / LED hybrid light source, the Casio XJ-UT310WN LampFree Ultra Short Throw projector offers eco-friendly data projection that provides an overall lower total cost of ownership than traditional projectors. The 5th generation Casio LampFree projector combines a laser, a fluorescent element and LEDs to generate high brightness. This light source offers a 30 percent increase in LED light output for improved colors for Signature, SLIM and the new Ultra Short Throw in Casio’s portfolio. In addition, the LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source has an estimated 20,000 hour lifespan with minimal brightness degradation and continuous operation.

Compared to traditional lamp-based projectors, Casio’s Signature projectors consume 1/3 less power per unit and eliminate the need for expensive projection lamps that often need replacement. Power consumption with the brightest setting is only 180 watts and eco modes can reduce power consumption up to 50 percent.

Primarily designed for the education market where Ultra Short Throw projectors are becoming the standard, the XJ-UT310WN offers WXGA resolution and required connectivity plus a suite of application tools which easily integrate today’s mobile technology into the classroom. Casio’s new XJ-UT310WN has a brightness up to 3100 lumens and an ultra short throw ratio of 0.28:1.

The XJ-UT310WN is available now with an MSRP of $1,999.99 and available for purchase through Casio’s National Pro AV dealer network and authorized distributors. An optional wall mount (YM-80) is also available with a MSRP of $249.99.

Ultimate Gaming Experience

As the old saying goes… “GO BIG OR GO HOME!”  As a gamer, I always look for ways to get more out of my gaming experience.  So I found a way to GO BIG AT HOME, or anywhere else for that matter.  All I needed was a portable, LED projector, the gaming console of my choice and a big wall.  Normally my 55″ Samsung flat screen at home gives me a pretty darn good gaming experience, but I was blown away to see how I can now play games on a 120″ screen on any wall that’s big enough for that size!  Check out how simple it is to set this up —

One word of caution, with these smaller, more portable projectors, it’s best to stick with ones that have at least 300 – 500 lumens, and play with the lights off.
