CASIO INTRODUCES WORLD’S BRIGHTEST LAMPFREE®
ULTRA SHORT-THROW PROJECTOR

New Casio XJ-UT310WN Projector Boasts 3100 Lumens and WXGA Resolution 

DOVER, NJ, April 2, 2014 Casio America, Inc., today introduced its first LampFree® Ultra Short Throw projector – the XJ-UT310WN. With brightness up to 3100 lumens and an ultra short throw ratio of 0.28:1, Casio’s new XJ-UT310WN is the world’s brightest LampFree® Ultra Short Throw projector* available. 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. 

“We take great pride in developing ground-breaking LampFree® projectors that lead the way in education technology and our new Ultra Short Throw projector does just that,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “It will fundamentally change the status quo in the education space, and deliver the benefits of LampFree® projection to schools and educators while providing enhanced features that will illuminate any classroom.”

Weighing less than 13 pounds, Casio’s XJ-UT310WNnot only enables projection from data files stored on a USB memory device, ** but also allows wireless connection to smart phones*** and computers via wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11b/g). The built in 2 GB of memory allows many file formats, such as PDF and QuickTime, to be stored in the projector for quick and easy playback. A full range of input terminals including HDMI RGB and video inputs provide connectivity to standard hardware sources. Audio inputs and a built in 16 watt speaker ensure all students can hear and a microphone terminal allows for teacher sound reinforcement. Ideal for classroom use, Casio’s XJ-UT310WN projector provides a 0.28:1 throw ratio using a mirror system which allows up to a 23” throw distance for a 67” image. This ultra short throw projector also has a new structure that has been developed to minimize deterioration of brightness due to dust.  The XJ-UT310WN even enables educators to display content from a mobile device, which can also be used to control presentations eliminating the need for additional hardware and equipment.

Using Casio’s free mobile application – compatible with both Apple and Android – educators can easily integrate technology into the classroom. The mobile application allows educators to display and annotate presentations from a mobile device, as well as capture and save. In addition, educators can open an Internet browser and display content in real-time. There is also an image capture function using the mobile device’s camera to snap an image and send it to the projector.

Finally, educators and IT managers will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of Casio’s LampFree® projectors in an Ultra Short Throw format with the XJ-UT310WN. No longer required to replace unsafe mercury lamps, the new XJ-UT310WN will help streamline costs and deliver a 20,000 hour estimated life due to Casio’s LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector’s total cost of ownership and maximizing investment.

 

Casio’s XJ-UT310WN comes with a standard three (3) year parts and labor warranty plus a five (5) year or 10,000 hour warranty on the Hybrid Laser & LED light source. The XJ-UT310WN will be available in Q3 2014 with an MSRP of $1,999.99 and available for purchase through Casio’s National Pro AV dealer network and authorized distributors.
