NEWS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
7 January, 2010
Equipped with Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source
World First High-Brightness projector without mercury
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that the development of Laser & LED Hybrid Light
Source for the next generation of projectors was succeeded under the concept of “Clear and Green”,
and “Green Slim Projector“ equipped with this new Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source to realize
world first * mercury free high-brightness projector are launched.
* In comparison to commercially available data projectors with 2000 ANSI lumens or more as of January 7, 2010, according
to a Casio survey
Nowadays, over 2000 ANSI lumens projectors are worked by high pressure mercury lamp.
As substitution light source device, LED or Laser without detrimental mercury are highly promised for next
generation of projectors.
However, high-brightness green light by LED or Laser is not produced in large quantities yet, both LED and
Laser are just used for small sized projectors with dim brightness.
In this time, CASIO successfully developed an original new semiconductor light source technology
combining a Red by red LED, Blue by a blue laser and Green converted by phosphor from a blue laser.
This source achieves high luminance over 2000 ANSI lumens safely by employing a phosphor device
to modify the wavelengths and phases of blue laser light through DLP® system.
“Green Slim Projector” equipped with this Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source realize high brightness from
2,000 to 3,000 ANSI lumens without mercury lamp as the world first new generation projector.
It measures just thickness 43 mm and 2.3 kg in an A4-size, provide enhanced colour reproduction for
higher-impact presentations.
In terms of usability, Green Slim drastically enhanced basic features: 8 seconds quick startup, immediate
shutdown and 20,000 hours long life light source.
As line up assortment, WXGA models to realize display resolution real 1280 x 800, models that have USB
for PC-less presentation and wireless communication with PC will be also available.
Advanced Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source shall change common sense in projector industry
thoroughly expanding the possibility of visual communications.
■High brightness, Superior image quality, long life light source, quick ON/OFF by Laser & LED Hybrid
Light Source without mercury lamp
■Mobile configuration by Slim design (thickness 43mm), light weight (2.3kg) in A4-size
■Wide-angle 2x zoom to provide positioning freedom in small meeting rooms to large classrooms
■USB capability to realize PC-free presentation and wireless communication with PC

《Main features of GREEN SLIM PROJECTOR》
■Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source supporting high-brightness projection without mercury
CASIO developed a new semiconductor light source technology combining a red LED, phosphor and a
blue laser. This source achieves high luminance safely by employing a phosphor device to modify the
wavelengths and phases of blue laser light.
■CASIO’s innovative mobile styling has resulted in an A4-size projector with high-brightness
It measures just 43 mm in thickness and 2.3 kg in weight equipped with Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source
succeeded up to 3,000 ANSI lumens (XJ-A255/A250/A155/A150).
It slips neatly into a slim briefcase with documents and travels with you easily to make clear presentations
even in a not dim room.
■Enhanced colour reproduction for higher-impact presentations
The dramatically enhanced colour purity achieved by our Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source technology
results in superior colour reproducibility and brighter, more beautiful colouration. High-purity colour visual
effects also generate brighter images, enabling you to present clear, powerful visuals.
■Long-life light source with reduced brightness degradation
Adopting a new semiconductor-based system has enabled CASIO to realize 10 times of longer light source
life of approximately 20,000 hours. Compared with conventional high-brightness projectors employing
mercury lamps (such as XJ-S58), this cuts the cost as well as the time and effort involved in exchanging
lamps dramatically, while at the same time maintaining clear, high-quality images over an extended period
by reducing the tendency toward degradation of the brightness.
■Quick startup/shutdown for presentation ease
The projector reaches its maximum brightness as quickly as 8 seconds after it’s turned on, significantly
shortening the time before you start your presentation. Since it doesn’t need time to cool down afterwards,
either, you can conduct your presentations cleanly and efficiently, from setting up to packing up.

■Wide-angle 2x zoom capability for positioning freedom
The wide-angle 2x zoom* lens boosts magnification to the highest level among data projectors**.
* This zoom capability enables the projector to project optimally sized images from close to the screen or farther away as well as to
correct screen distortions resulting from the projector’s positioning automatically.
**Source: As of 7 January 2010 CASIO investigation
■HDMI terminal
AV equipments or PC with HDMI output terminal can be connected to the projector with a single cable.
This enables you to project high-definition images on a large screen while maintaining high image quality.
■WXGA Real projection (XJ-A255/A250/A245/A240)
The product lineup includes both 1,280 x 800 dot (16:10) WXGA Real models that realize high-density
images benefiting fully from high resolution.
■Wireless capability (XJ-A255/A245/A155/A145/A135)
Wireless communication is possible with up to four Windows® PCs (IEEE 802.11b/g): The meeting with
operating up to four PCs, presentation away from projector are possible at ease.
■USB terminal (XJ-A255/A245/A155/A145/A135)
To make presentations without a PC, simply save your presentation materials such as Excel, Word, PPT,
PDF data*, image (JPEG/BMP) and even movie (Motion JPEG/AVI format) in a USB memory device
commercially available and project them directly from the projector (USB 2.0-compliant).
Meanwhile, CASIO’s Multi-functional camera system YC400/430 can be connected directly to projectors.
*File conversion by original software is necessary.
■Ceiling mount installation is possible
