CASIO’s Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source
Entering a new era of Solid State Illumination Light Source Projectors.
In 2010, CASIO became the first company in the world to develop a Laser & LED Light Source for projectors. Developed in response to the environmental, economic and utilitarian needs of the era, this Solid State Illumination Light Source technology is being quickly diffused throughout the projector industry as the new light source standard. CASIO can look forward to continued growth in an expanding market as the leading manufacturer of Solid State Illumination Light Source Projectors.
Laser & LED Light Source Technology
It began with CASIO’s original development of an optical engine combining a high-luminance blue laser with a red LED. The high projection efficiency realized through outstanding energy-saving technologies and optical block optimization led to achievement of high brightness projection and lower energy consumption as compared with mercury lamp systems and other solid-state light sources. Product downsizing was achieved, moreover, with the help of freer design layouts and original high-density mounting technologies. The unique evolution of projectors that promise to establish new standards for the next generation continues.
Quick startup & shutdown time [Instant ON & OFF]
Startup takes as little as 5 seconds after the power is turned ON, dramatically reducing waiting time before image projection. Power OFF is achieved with one push of a button, and no cooldown is required before restarting. The ability to start projecting immediately increases efficiency in meetings and classes, and efficient power ON/OFF management can help conserve electricity as well.
Instant Light Control
Brightness is automatically adjusted to the optimal level for room brightness, which reduces electrical power costs.
Adjustment is one of 7 brightness levels and Manual adjustment is also supported.
Long life, high durability, low energy consumption Helping to reduce TCO*
The Laser and LED Technology has a long life light source that last approximately 20,000 hours. With the combined dust resistance design, it helps to reduce deterioration of the projector luminance which is commonly attributed to dust and also reduces the maintenance of Casio Projectors. Comparing to mercury lamp projectors, Casio requires little to no maintenance.
* TCO (Total Cost of Ownership): Total cost of introduction, maintenance, management, etc.
[ Comparison of total cost over 5 years ]
* With use for 5 hours/day, 200 days/year. Eco mode “Eco 1” selected.
CASIO projectors are equipped with an SSI* light source employing the mostadvanced light source technology. Although the use of mercury is widely prohibited worldwide today, this hazardous substance continues to be employed as a light source for conventional projector lamps. CASIO has eliminated the use of mercury from its products in consideration of the environment. Adoption of an SSI light source, combined with CASIO’s original energy-saving design, also contributes to reducing CO2 emissions.
* SSI (solid state illumination) light sources employ LEDs, lasers or other such lighting technologies.
Commitment to usability
Dust resistance structure
Reduction in troublesome maintenance tasks for use in wide-ranging environments.
Intrusion of dust into the optical engine block is curtailed, minimizing degradation of the projection brightness. The time and effort spent on chores such as filter replacement are minimized, which is appreciated by people who use their projectors in dusty environments or mount them on the ceiling, where they can require time-consuming maintenance.
1.5X zoom lens for flexible usability & 360° installation
With the projector’s 1.5x Zoom, it is now easier for installation purposes. Other benefits include unrestricted 360° installation that supports highly flexible image projection, including portrait projection from a vertical position, or perpendicular projection onto the floor or ceiling.
Energy-efficient design for significant cost reduction
Operation in the Eco mode achieves low power consumption of 120W*. Users can also take advantage of the 5-second minimum startup time to achieve further energy savings with strategic power ON/OFF new switching. These developments represent responses to the energy-saving needs of the era.
