Casio’s Super Slim Projector

Casio America has recently launched four new projector models that include their DLP projection technology. This latest projector is part of their Super Slim line and integrates RS-232 connectivity within a thin body design. The product features Casio’s “Super Color” technology and is also part of Casio’s “Super Bright” series, both of which are designed for high brightness applications. The projector boasts the world’s thinnest body, with dimensions of 10.6” x 1.7” x 7.8”.

The new models have been designed for applications where color accuracy is essential. The projectors have a brightness of 3500 lumens and incorporate an enhanced color technology where chromaticity region has been expanded by approximately 10% of the projected view. A high-fidelity color-rendering light engine algorithm and improved color wheel were employed to achieve these results.

“The enhancement in color maintains white rendering, with improved yellows and magentas that are more naturally reproduced, with vivid reds and blues for a more color- accurate image,” stated Frank Romeo, Vice President of Business Products. “This series takes the Super Slim line to even greater heights!”

The Casio projector is the slimmest in the market and includes a zoom lens with two times zoom capability, allowing projection from a shortest distance of 2.8 feet and a maximum distance of 30 feet. The RS-232 connectivity makes the device compatible with Crestron, Extron, and AMX products; a USB port can be used to connect the projector to a wireless network or a WiFi receiver that can allow access to multiple notebooks for easy projection during a conference.

The projector can also be used individually, without the need of a PC connection. By connecting a pen drive to the projector and Casio’s EZ-Converter Pro software, users can covert and present spreadsheets, word processor documents and presentations including PDF, JPEG, BMP and video (AVI, MPEG4 and JPEG) files.

TFOT has previously written about the iPhone-sized pocket projector that supports a screen size of 50” from a distance of 1.8 meters and includes built in speakers and a rechargeable battery. We have also covered the Optoma PK-101, which is also no larger than an iPhone and can project an image up to 60 inches in size from a distance of about two meters.
