That’s because the Casio XJ-450’s and XJ-350’s 2x optical zoom lens
features the highest magnification of any portable on the market. The automatic exclusive H & V keystone correction feature of the XJ-450 quickly
“squares up” your image, even from extreme angles. Along with a compact, lightweight design and the ability to project in daylight, it’s easy
to see how the XJ-450 and XJ-350 outshine the competition.
A complete innovation – in fact,
nothing short of a revolution.
The multi-functional camera system YC-400 offers entirely
new presentation techniques, such as direct document capture as with a classic document camera and immediate presentation using a data projector. You can take pictures of
flipcharts or whiteboards with notes, you can integrate up-todate photos, and much more. CASIO’s new technology
places almost limitless and totally new presentation techniques at your fingertips!
The multi-functional camera system is based on tried-&tested CASIO technology in the shape of a high-resolution,
removable digital camera with 4 million pixels, to ensure that
even the tiniest details come out sharp. The integrated tripod
with document stand and the tailor-made software supplied
with the system turn it into an ideal presentation tool.
2x Zoom
You know what you’ve got to show, but you’re not sure what
room you’ll be holding your presentation in? With the new
CASIO projectors, this is no problem: thanks to the 2x optical
zoom, you can choose any distance to the projection surface
between 5.25 and 10.5 feet, for example, for an image 60
inches wide. With conventional 1.2x zoom projectors, you can
only vary the distance between 7.75 and 9.5 feet. The new
CASIO projectors make you almost independent of the room

CASIO 2x wide-angle zoom, you can adjust the image

a perfect picture at all times – especially at short distances.
The XJ-450 even adjusts the image size at the touch of a button – it is equipped with a power-driven zoom lens with auto focus.
IMC and ACR systems from CASIO
The remarkably compact size of our new projectors is made
possible by CASIO’s own inventions. Thus a newly-developed IMC
condenser lens (IMC = Inverse Meniscus Condenser) is used in
combination with a completely new form of bulb reflector (ACR:
Acornic Reflector). These two features enable total size to be
reduced by some 30 %, while making approx. 20 % better use of
the light emitted by the lamp.

YC-400: multi-functional camera system
The presentation revolution. With the
multifunctional camera system YC-400,
CASIO has managed to integrate a
high-resolution (4 million pixels) digital
camera into a presentation system for
the first time. This opens up
presentation possibilities which have
been inconceivable up until now.
Quick to grasp things: scan and project
whatever crosses your desk.
Does this sound familiar? In the middle of a meeting, someone
brings you the latest information. Not in digital form, of course,
but as handwritten notes, a printout or a newspaper clipping.
Connecting it is child’s play: you hook up the YC-400 to the
USB connection of your PC, which is connected to the XJ-450
or XJ-350 – and you’re all set!
Wouldn’t it be great if you could incorporate these documents
into your projector presentation and in high resolution? That’s no
problem with the YC-400: just place the document on the document
tray and hit the button. The software
