CASIO INTRODUCES ULTRA-BRIGHT SUPER SLIM PROJECTORS

Slim and easily portable 2,500 ANSI Lumens projectors
No PC Needed for Presentations
DOVER, NJ, JUNE 19, 2007 — Casio, Inc. announced today the release of two new ultra-bright models in the Super Slim Projector series. The new XJ-S46 and XJ-S41 feature a brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens in a very slim piece of equipment with a height of just 1.69" (1.26" at the thinnest point). Casio, Inc. will start shipping the new projectors in the third quarter of 2007. The new projectors will be on display at Casio's Booth # 1500 at InfoComm 2007.

Original Casio technologies such as a high-efficiency compact light source and a single-fan, two-compartment cooling system are the secret to the diminutive size (1.26" at the thinnest point) of the two new Super Slim Projectors, which both pack a powerful 2,500 ANSI lumens. Equipped with a wide-angle 2X zoom for maximum magnification, they are ideal for use in various settings, from small meeting rooms to larger conference rooms and classrooms.

The XJ-S46 comes with a built-in USB port, and can be used wirelessly or without a PC. The projectors can load and illustrate many forms of data* without a PC connection, including presentations, spreadsheets, word processed documents, PDF files, still images (JPEG and BMP) and AVI format videos (compatible with MPEG4 and Motion JPEG). An optionally available USB wireless adapter frees users to deliver presentations without having to stay near the projector. A multi-functional camera system, which is sold separately, can also be directly connected to the projectors without the need for a PC.

"Casio is thrilled to introduce these two new additions to the super slim projectors line," said Frank Romeo, Vice President of Business and Professional Products. "The resourcefulness of the XJ-S41 and XJ-S46 projectors, with their super slim design and powerful zoom lens, make them the perfect business travel tool."

The XJ-S41 will have an MSRP of $1,299, the XJ-S46 an MSRP of $1,499 and the YC-430 an MSRP of $1,199 and will be available at retail in July.

* Data from presentation, spreadsheet, and word processor software, and PDF files, must be converted using the bundled software for PC.
