Phoenix Union High School District Brightens Its Classrooms with Casio’s Lampfree™ Projectors

 

Phoenix Union High School District Brightens Its Classrooms with Casio’s Lampfree™ Projectors

Today, educators are tasked with choosing viable technologies to integrate into the classroom that are not only engaging, but also portable, easy-to-use and, most importantly, cost-effective. With limited budgets, choosing the best technology with the lowest total cost of ownership is paramount.

As part of an overall engagement initiative, the Phoenix Union High School district in Arizona wanted to replace existing and inefficient classroom projectors with a bulb-less, green solution; to do so, the Phoenix Union High School district sought out ImmediaEdu – a company specializing in integrated AV systems and interactive classrooms to improve student achievement and teacher effectiveness – to help find high-quality, low maintenance projectors for ongoing classroom use. With the help of ImmediaEdu, located in Phoenix, AZ, the Phoenix Union High School district installed 1,480 of Casio’s Signature XJ-M250 projectors across all of its campuses, which accounts for 16 schools with more than 27,000 students and nearly 3,000 employees.

ImmediaEdu recommended Casio’s Signature XJ-M250 projectors because they are LampFreeTM and they run on Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source. This means that expensive lamps – which typically cost almost as much as the original projector over the course of one year – do not need to be replaced every few months. With the projectors having an estimated lifespan of 20,000 hours, Phoenix Union schools can run the projectors as often as necessary.

“Only a few manufacturers offered lamp-free LED projectors when we started the Phoenix Union project, but Casio offered the most powerful LampFreeTM light engine for the price range,” said Alexis Cruz-Christensen, Vice President, educational partnerships at ImmediaEdu. “Additionally, with a large zoom range, Casio’s LampFreeTM projectors allowed us to replace a variety of existing projectors with different throw ranges without having to move existing ceiling mounts – making the transition easier for all parties involved.”

“Casio was pleased to have worked with ImmediaEdu on this project,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We understand that budgets are limited, so it’s very rewarding when working with educators to help them get the best solution based hardware offered today.  Casio has been providing LampFreeTM solutions for educators for several years and will continue to grow our lineup in the education sector, offering solutions is much more satisfying than simply offering product.”

Casio’s Signature XJ-M250 LampFreeTM projectors are DLP™ 3D ready and can display 3D content from a 3D capable computer. Educators can engage students on an entirely new level by bringing challenging lessons and lectures to life with vivid and exciting images that jump off the screen. Educators can also convert and view their own 2D material with the optional 2D-3D conversion software, which will help produce imaginative and relevant visuals and lesson materials. Additionally, the Intelligent Brightness Control features an ECO function which conserves power while illuminating sharp imagery, automatically adjusting the brightness to suit the environmental lighting conditions of any lecture hall and classroom.

Casio’s warranty program offers three years parts and labor coverage and several of the models offer a warranty on the LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source for up to five years or 10,000 hours With Casio’s Extra Value Warranty Program, educators can use the projector for approximately 1,000 hours per school year, which equals 10 years of total operation.

“Overall, Casio’s XJ-M250 projectors operate cooler, use significantly less power than traditional bulb projectors and are bright enough to be used in a fully lit room with the window shades open,” said Don Fournier, Division Manager of Information Technology for Phoenix Union. “With a five year warranty on the light source, the projectors are essentially maintenance-free.”

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.

Casio Teams Up With Synnex Corporation To Expand LampFree® Projector Distribution

DOVER, NEW JERSEY, December 16, 2013 – Casio is proud to announce its new association with Synnex Corporation, a wholesale distributor servicing resellers and original equipment manufacturers worldwide. Under this new partnership, Casio will increase its presence in the government and education sectors by being the first LampFree® projector line that Synnex distributes across the United States.

 “We are very excited to work with Synnex and believe this partnership will benefit Casio’s growth nationwide,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “Casio is committed to providing its leading LampFree® technology to consumers and this partnership will open the door to new channels for Casio projectors and strengthen our position as a leader in this industry.”

Casio’s portfolio of projectors are powered by its state-of-the-art LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source and DLP® technology that provides LampFree®, eco-friendly data projection at a fraction of the cost of traditional projectors. Casio’s LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source combines blue laser light and a fluorescent element to generate a high output of green light. The green light, blue laser light, and the light emitted by a red LED are then projected through a DLP® chip which, in turn, is passed through the projection lens to form an image. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared to a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector’s total cost of ownership and maximizing investment.

Synnex is authorized to distribute the Casio LampFree® projector across the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. While the company will carry the complete line of Casio LampFree® projectors, some models will be open to all channels of distribution, while others will focus on the Pro AV marketplace.

Buffalo Wild Wings Enhances Game Day Atmosphere with Casio’s LampFree Projectors

Buffalo Wild Wings, a popular sports bar/restaurant franchise based in the United States, wanted to visually enhance and transform its customers’ overall casual dining experience. To do so, Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee (AMPAL Restaurant Group) sought out DFX – a company specializing in audio, visual, lighting and automation solutions across a number of verticals – to help find high-quality, low maintenance projectors for daily sports viewing. With the help of DFX located in West Berlin, AMPAL  installed 15 of Casio’s projectors across three AMPAL Buffalo Wild Wing  locations in New Jersey.

 

DFX recommended Casio’s portfolio of projectors because they are LampFree and run on Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source. This means users do not have to replace lamps every 2-3 months, which typically cost almost as much as the original projector cost over one year. With the projectors having an estimated lifespan of 20,000 hours, Buffalo Wild Wings can now provide on-going sports coverage, since the projectors usually run more than 10 hours a day.

 

“Without the use of mercury lamps, Buffalo Wild Wings no longer has to worry about downtime from lamp failures  or the costly maintenance associated with bulbs,” said Gennaro Esposito, vice president of DFX. “As an industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, I have found Casio’s projectors to be the ideal solution for establishments like Buffalo Wild Wings.”

 

By using Casio’s LampFree projection technology, Buffalo Wild Wings has eliminated thetime and cost associated with lamp replacement as well as dark screens during critical events.

 

“The total cost of ownership, ability to withstand extended daily use and retain brightness were the major components in choosing projection technology,” said Robert Corde, director of operations for AMPAL Restaurant Group, Buffalo Wild Wings. “Casio’s Dual Projection System and Pro Series XJ-H2600 go above and beyond our expectations and have made a significant technological difference in our restaurant locations by cutting down costs and maintenance, and ultimately brightening the atmosphere. Our customers now have the opportunity to watch crisp, vivid imagery unmatched by competitors.”

 

Three Buffalo Wild Wings locations in New Jersey are currently equipped with Casio’s Dual Projection Systems and Pro XJ H2600 projectors; four (4) in Monmouth Mall, five (5) in Rockaway and six (6) in Watchung, NJ.

 

The Dual Projection  System, designed with two Casio projectors stacked on top of one another, projects two sharp, high-quality images, which the Convex System control box then merges into one screen. It is available in two different models; the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The XJ-SK650 features double stacked Pro Series XJ-H2600 projectors and provides users with up to 6,500 lumens, while the XJ-SK600 features double stacked Signature Series XJ-M250 projectors and provides up to 6,000 lumens. Both of these models provide roughly twice the lumen output provided by a single projector.

 

The Dual Projection System includes two (2) projectors, ceiling mount housing and the Convex System control box, which corrects and merges screen images. The system features high-precision correction and an interface that allows easy modifications using a remote control.

 

“Casio is proud to be Buffalo Wild Wing’s premier projector provider,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We know our Lamp Free projectors will reduce operating costs over the life of the installation and create a space that is both inviting and dynamic. We look forward to our continued relationship with Buffalo Wild Wings.”

Offers Infinite Applications

 

LAS VEGAS, NV (FEBRUARY 27, 2013) — Coming off the cusp of a successful Consumer Electronics Show, Casio America, Inc. is pleased to showcase its new digital signage business with its ground-breaking approach to storefront advertising at the Digital Signage Expo. As the hero application of Casio’s new digital signage business, Casio Signage takes a revolutionary new approach by leveraging optimum advertising tools and cloud services to attract new customers and increase repeat business. Casio Signage will be exhibited in Casio’s booth (#147) at the Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 27-28, 2013.

“Storefront advertising must be attractive, interesting and versatile in order to entice consumers to enter an establishment,” said Shigenori Itoh, Chairman and CEO of Casio America, Inc. “Casio Signage offers retailers and business owners a unique way to make consumers feel welcome, while delivering relevant content in a personal manner. We have no doubt that Casio Signage will
set a new standard for storefront advertising and change the industry as a whole.”

Casio Signage is a cutting-edge storefront advertising tool with the ability to captivate passers-by with a realistic-looking character that talks to them. Using a custom designed screen shaped like a character, content is created to match the characteristics needed to bring people into a store. The character’s appearance and voice can be easily changed to keep customers from losing interest and increase store traffic. Casio Signage is compact and requires no installation work, making it easy to place nearly anywhere. It also offers multilingual support or multifunctional options creating a fully customizable system with content that is most relevant for the customer base.

Together with innovative cloud services such as the distribution of digital coupons, stores with Casio Signage will enjoy an edge
over the competition.

Main Features of Casio Signage

  • Realistic images help captivate passers-by and attract new customers – The screen itself is shaped like a character or person, and speaks to visitors to get their attention and invite them in.

 

  • Content is easily updated to increase store traffic  – Retailers simply provide Casio with a still image and text. Casio then animates the image and adds the voice. No video production is required for stores. This process makes it easy to edit the animation for future use.

 

  • Compact size that can fit almost anywhere – It features a small 18” x 21.10” footprint. No installation work is required.

 

  • Multilingual support – Available languages include English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and more. Customers can select the language they want to hear.

 

  • Cloud services are available for unique retail promotions – Casio can provide cloud services such as digital coupons for customers with smartphones.

 

  • Long-lasting light source – The originally developed Laser-LED Hybrid Light Source by Casio delivers approximately 20,000 hours of life.

Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System Offer Innovative Technology
with An Overall Lower Cost of Ownership

LAS VEGAS, NV (FEBRUARY 27, 2013) — Casio America Inc. , a leader in the digital projection industry, is proud to introduce two new systems ideal for a variety of digital signage applications – the Projector Stacking System and the YA-S10 Converter System. Featuring Casio’s LampFree™ LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source, the Projector Stacking System is available in two different models, the XJ SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The YA-S10 Converter System features cutting edge technology that allows a single projector to display images on curved surfaces. Both systems will be exhibited in Casio’s booth (#147) at the Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 27-28, 2013.

“As a leading provider of digital projection technology, we are constantly developing new applications that address the changing needs of the digital projection/signage industry,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We are confident that our new Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System will increase efficiency and streamline costs for retailers and business owners alike, further raising industry standards and solidifying Casio’s presence as an industry leader.”

The Projector Stacking System, designed with two Casio projectors stacked on top of one another, projects two sharp, high-quality images, which the YA-S10 Converter System control box then merges into one screen. It is available in two different models; the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The XJ-SK650 features double stacked Pro Series XJ-H2600 projectors and provides users with up to 6,500 lumens, while the XJ-SK600 features double stacked Signature Series XJ-M250 projectors and provides up to 6,000 lumens. Both of these models provide roughly twice the lumen output provided by a single projector.

The Projector Stacking System includes two (2) projectors, ceiling mount housing and the YA-S10 Converter System control box, which corrects and merges screen images. The system features high-precision correction and an interface that allows easy modifications using a remote control. The YA-S10 Converter System control box focuses on image alignment with each of the projectors in the Stacking System. When the YA-S10 Converter System correction box is connected, both projectors can also project high brightness images at any angle making the Projector Stacking System ideal for digital signage, sports bars, house of worship and many large venue applications.

When used separately Casio’s YA-S10 Converter System enables users to project images onto curved pillars, round areas, flat surfaces or any unique shape. The system is set up to adjust any image misalignment or distortion without the need for additional hardware. Using the YA-S10 Converter System with any Casio LampFree™ projector, images can be corrected for curved surfaces using free-form surface compensation with a lattice of up to 81 grid points for adjustments.

Both the Projector Stacking System and Convex System are powered by Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source, which provides Lamp-Free, eco-friendly data projection at a percentage of the cost of traditional projectors. Casio’s LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source combines blue laser light and a fluorescent element to generate a high output of green light. The green light, blue laser light, and the light emitted by a red LED are projected through a DLP® chip which, in turn, is passed through the projection lens to form an image. 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. Since there is only minimal loss of brightness even during long-term use, it is ideal for those heavy-duty applications involving frequent use of projection such as retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants, offices and other environments. With an estimated life span of 20,000 hours, both systems ensure low
maintenance and streamlined costs.

Casio’s new Projector Stacking System and YA-S10 Converter System are currently available for purchase. For additional information regarding Casio LampFree™ projectors, please visit www.casioprojector.com.
