Projector Pioneer Casio Believes Projection is Better When it is Lamp-Free
DOVER, NJ (JUNE 13, 2012) — While our nation has experienced some positive growth after one of the worst economic times in our country’s history, our economy is still in a fragile state. Both the private and public sectors are continuing to look for ways to save. Many times, AV professionals are forced to seek comprehensive solutions that drive efficiency, lower costs, streamline workflow and integrate seamlessly into every day activities.
In response to the rapidly changing economic environment, Casio America, Inc., a leader in the digital projection space, developed the world’s first LASER & LED, Lamp-Free portfolio of projectors. Casio’s revolutionary LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source, now in its second generation, combines a laser, a fluorescent element and LED’s to generate high brightness, while eliminating the need for expensive projection lamps that often need replacement. By eliminating the use of mercury lamps, Casio’s LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source allows users to reduce costs and count on a 20,000 hour estimated life span. The average user will save hundreds of dollars after approximately 6,000 hours of use compared to traditional mercury lamps.
“The Total Cost of Ownership (TOC), which is the sum of all costs related to technology, is reduced based on our Lamp-Free technology,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “This technology, along with high brightness, quick response, dynamic features and a newly extended five year/10,000 hour warranty make Casio’s projectors the go-to solution for any organization, professional or academic, looking to reduce operation and maintenance costs, while at the same time keeping up with new environmental standards.”
The company’s commitment to the projection industry is displayed through its full line of Lamp-Free projectors including portable, multi-purpose, high brightness and short throw units that are equipped with a variety of features fit for a multitude of environments. In addition to being Lamp-Free and eco-friendly, Casio’s projectors are also equipped with a number of capabilities that will illuminate any room and aid in the creation of dynamic presentations. Features include energy-saving modes, brightness up to 4000 lumens, Computer, HDMI and video inputs and the ability to display 3D content from a 3D capable computer. USB models incorporate LAN and wireless connectivity, MobiShow, Crestron Roomview control and select models are Interactive WhiteBoard ready
“Currently, we have the largest assortment of LASER & LED projectors on the market,” said Mustachio. “Since the inception of Casio’s Lamp-Free family of projectors in 2010, school districts across the United States have been integrating Casio’s technology. We pride ourselves in offering a comprehensive solution for AV professionals and educators and are extremely proud of the progress we have made in the industry. We will continue to be the pioneers of Lamp-Free technology.”
Since introducing the Hybrid light source, Casio’s market share within the Lamp-Free projector category has increased by 250 percent over the past two years The LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source will continue to serve as the driving force behind Casio’s projectors. Casio continues to be innovators within this sector looking to expand its lineup through the development of additional projectors with a next generation LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source.
