Casio Showcases World’s First Mercury-Free High-Brightness Projectors at InfoComm 2010

GREEN SLIM Projectors Feature State-of-the-Art Hybrid Light Source For B2B and Consumer Applications

Advancements in video technology and portability are driving an increase in projection adoption in a wide range of markets. Projectors are changing the visual landscape and enhancing everything from digital signage, interactive gaming and advertising to lectures in the classroom. Earlier this year, Casio America, Inc. announced the creation of a mercury-free, laser and LED Hybrid Light Source, capable of high-brightness projection for use in next-generation projectors. Developed under the company’s “clean and green? concept, the new projectors eliminate the need for mercury bulbs with the production of a long-lasting light source. Today, Casio is showcasing its GREEN SLIM line of projectors, the world’s first* mercury-free high-brightness data projectors, during InfoComm 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the Central Hall, Booth #C5870.
GREEN SLIM projectors are not only eco-friendly and affordable, but also versatile as they can be used for many applications including digital signage, education, business and home entertainment. While utilizing the GREEN SLIM projectors, users will encounter a better projection experience thanks to the many benefits of the Hybrid Light Source. Some of the application-specific benefits include:

Digital Signage
GREEN SLIM projectors can be integrated into a variety of signage applications and display electronic messages in any location helping businesses and organizations communicate effectively to target audiences without sacrificing image integrity or quality. The Green Slim’s long-life Hybrid Light Source provides longer operation in digital signage applications compared to mercury lamp projectors and can be rotated 90 degrees for portrait display (when using WXGA format models).

Education
GREEN SLIM projectors deliver extremely high-brightness image projection and colorful images that add impact to any lesson which benefits the overall teaching process and leads to an improved learning experience for students.

Business
Lightweight (5 lbs.) and powerful, the new Casio GREEN SLIM projectors mean success for professionals on the road. At only 1.7? thin, they fit easily into briefcases for the ultimate in mobility. Reliable, worry-free and designed with the needs of the presenter in mind.

Home Entertainment
When holding movie night, watching the big game or bringing video games to life, Casio’s GREEN SLIM projectors can enhance the experience by offering a 100″ or greater projection. The color and brightness is incredible and offers an experience that a large screen TV just can’t match.

Casio has created an original mercury-free hybrid light source capable of generating high brightness by combining a laser, a fluorescent element and an LED. Casio has achieved high output of green light, which has been considered difficult with conventional semiconductor light sources, by efficiently converting blue laser light into green light, using the fluorescent element. The high-brightness light of 2,000 or more lumens was then attained by projecting blue laser light, green light converted from blue laser light with the fluorescent element, and light emitted by a red LED through a DLP® chip onto the screen.

“Casio’s eco-friendly GREEN SLIM projectors demonstrate the company’s tradition of developing technologically advanced durable products that meet a variety of needs,? said Frank Romeo, vice president of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “The advances we have made to provide superior brightness and energy-saving features make it the perfect tool for a variety of applications.?

GREEN SLIM projectors are available in a diverse lineup, including several models with native WXGA resolution at 1280 × 800 pixels (16:10) and additional USB-enabled models that can project without a PC or communicate wirelessly with PCs. USB-enabled GREEN SLIM projectors, using an optional wireless adapter, can be wirelessly connected with up to 32 computers with up to four computers displayed simultaneously.
