Manufacturer of thin and lightweight projectors rolls out new additions to line
Casio America, Inc. announced today the release of four new Super Slim projector models featuring DLP projection technology. These new additions to the Super Slim line feature enhanced brightness and RS-232 connectivity while still incorporating a thin body design only 1.69″ high. The XJ-S32, XJ-S37, XJ-S42 and XJ-S47 models are part of Casio’s Ultra Bright Series designed for high brightness applications and mobile presenters.
While maintaining the industries slimmest projector, Casio has achieved 2300-2700 ANSI lumens output. This brightness improvement and versatile 2X power zoom lens allows the Super Slim projectors to be used in a boardroom, conference, or classroom where brightness is an important feature. In addition, the USB equipped XJ-S37 and XJ-S47 models enable users to make PowerPoint and other presentations without a PC or wirelessly. A whole new class of communication tool, the Super Slim Projector expands on what users can do through innovations in both form and function.
“Casio is thrilled to introduce these four new additions to the Super Slim projector line,” said Frank Romeo, Vice President of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “The super slim design and powerful zoom lens make these new additions the perfect business tool for the road warrior and permanent installations.”
The new models will also support connectivity for control through RS-232 and will be compatible with Crestron, Extron, and AMX products. This added feature, along with the flexibility of 2X power zoom lens and super slim design make it highly attractive for low profile placement in any conference room or classroom.
The XJ-S37 and XJ-S47 will include a USB port for wireless connectivity through an optional Wireless LAN adaptor allowing for expanded connectivity in the conference room with notebooks and allows up to four PC’s to connect at a time.
For portable applications, the USB port also supports *PC-less presentations with your USB thumb drive and through Casio’s EZ-Converter Pro software you can convert and present spreadsheets, word processor and presentations including PDF, PPT, EXCEL and WORD documents. JPEG, BMP and AVI (compatible with MPEG4/Motion JPEG) file formats can be presented without conversion.
All models are equipped with wide-angle 2X power zoom providing the highest magnification in a data projector, enabling projection from short distances of 2.75 feet and can reach a total of 37 feet. Boasting the world’s thinnest body**, Casio’s Super Slim measures only 1.26″ at its thinnest point with an overall thickness of 1.69″.
The Super Bright models will be available through Casio’s authorized Pro AV Dealers, Resellers and retail. Planned pricing will start from $899 – $1,199 MSRP.
