- 2X optical zoom / the maximum for a ultra portable data projector
CASIO's proprietary zoom lens has been designed with 2X magnification to obtain the maximum benefit from the aspherical lens and low-dispersion glass. This enables clear projection from distances of as little as 0.8 meters from the screen, while projection of a 60-inch screen image can be achieved at any point between 1.6 and 3.2 meters. From small meeting rooms to large classrooms, the projectors lens offers tremendous flexibility in a lightweight, easy-to-use package.
- Ultra-brightness from an incredibly compact unit
The reverse meniscus condenser lens and aspherical-shaped reflector enable these compact projectors to deliver an astonishing level of brightness, enabling clear projection even with the room lighting on. The top-of-the-line XJ-560 delivers 3,000 lumens for a remarkable level of brilliance and clarity.
- Automatic vertical/horizontal Keystone correction and auto focus (XJ-560)
The phase differential sensor system automatically detects and corrects vertical and horizontal image distortion. In addition, auto-focus allows instant focusing at the touch of a button. Using the 2X optical zoom, you can freely adjust the projector's focus length, greatly expanding your range of positioning.
- Ease of use
Both models are easy to use and offer the flexibility of projecting great pictures
from anywhere in the room.
- Direct Power OFF by removing the power cable after use (XJ-560)
Condensers are activated in the projector to power the fan offering protection to the lamp from heat damage.
