Green Projector: Casio Green Slim Family
The eight DLP-based Green Slim projectors are either WXGA or XGA and either 2,500 or 2,000 ANSI lumens. Each uses Casio?s new hybrid light source, which combines a laser, fluorescent element, and LED.
After months of anticipation, Casio’s new line of slim, mercury-free, LED-based projectors has hit the market. The eight different DLP-based Green Slim projectors are distinguished from each other by a couple factors—they’re either WXGA or XGA, and either 2,500 or 2,000 ANSI lumens. Each uses the company’s new hybrid light source, which combines a laser, a fluorescent element, and an LED. Green light output is enhanced by converting blue laser light into green light using the fluorescent element. The projectors are compact (5 pounds and 1.7 inches thick) and Casio says the light source should last 20,000 hours. Certain models (the XJ-A245, XJ-A235, XJ-A145, and XJ-A135) come with USB functionality for projecting without a PC and wireless communications. All models have HDMI ports and a wide-angle 2X optical zoom. Casio America. 800-836-8580. superslimprojector.com.
