Casio announced the new Superior Series of LampFree Projectors designed for classrooms and conference rooms.
Casio’s new projectors offers brightness up to 4000 lumens and provide full HD resolution. And with a 1.7X zoom lens, the Superior Series increases flexibility with installations as the projectors can fit into many existing brackets.
The Superior Series features the next generation of Casio’s mercury-free LED and Laser hybrid light source. Casio says that the new R-Hybrid Light Source technology produces brilliant colors while providing the same cost-saving benefits of Casio’s previous technology including a service life of up to 20,000 hours without the need to change a lamp. For use in schools, this corresponds to an operating lifetime of up to 18 years, during which the projector is running for an average of six hours a day through a 180-day school year. Additionally, the Superior Series boasts Casio’s new dust resistant design with improved efficiency in cooling the light source and power supply while providing stronger dust resistance.
The new models offer an Auto Input Search to eliminate the need to set the input port which teachers must do to connect to a classroom’s projector. With this feature, educators simply plug the PC into the projector and start the class immediately.
Educators can also transition from one class to the next with the Auto Projection Off feature, which automatically puts the projector into stand-by mode. Other built-in features include a Countdown Timer for classroom management, Template function to increase efficiency and Mirror Mode to reverse project images to show form and movement.
Casio’s new models are compatible with Casio’s YW-41 wireless adaptor and offer educators additional features as part of the Casio Education package. Using the Moderator Function, teachers can select a presenter from anywhere in a classroom and project their PC onto the screen. Data, classwork and presentations from students’ devices can be shared via a wireless connection with ease.
Using Casio’s Quick Projection feature, educators can connect to a classroom projector with minimal time loss. IT managers simply create the icon for connection in advance and upload it on any shared server or cloud system. Teachers and students then add the icon on their devices and click to wirelessly project content to that model without having to re-install the projector for each use.
Using the C-Connection Software or App, educators also have the ability to control projection remotely through a smart device from anywhere in the classroom, as well as control the projector input when using PC/Projector Remote Operation.
The Superior Series models will become available in Spring 2019.
