CASIO INTRODUCES SLIM & BRIGHT WXGA PROJECTOR

XJ-S43W First in Super Slim Line to Feature Widescreen Format
DOVER, NJ, JUNE 17, 2009 -- Casio America, Inc. announced today the release of a new Super Slim projector model featuring WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution, bringing widescreen presentations to your business or classroom. The XJ-S43W model is part of Casio’s Super Slim? family featuring DLP projection technology and designed for high brightness applications and portability. The next generation of projectors in the Super Slim? family will be on display at Casio’s Booth # 2949 at the InfoComm Show that opened today in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

Building on the successful Super Slim projector family and maintaining the industries slimmest profile*, Casio has added WXGA resolution while achieving 2,500 ANSI lumens output. This brightness improvement, versatile 2X power zoom lens and addition of WXGA native resolution allows the Super Slim projector to be used in the boardroom and classroom with ease. The new Super Slim projector will provide traveling and in-house business executives, as well as educators, with advanced applications that can support their diverse needs. The installation of a Casio Super Slim projector in any facility—boardroom, office, classroom or lecture hall is seamless.

Widescreen display formats have become the standard format in everyday electronics and the majority of notebook PC’s and televisions are sold in widescreen format. Now for the first time, Casio’s Super Slim projectors can match these products’ display format.

The XJ-S43W comes equipped with an HDMI input (High Defninition Multimedia Interface) providing direct digital connectivity with many Notebooks now shipping with HDMI outputs as well as compatibility with HD Video formats. In addition to Wide Screen notebooks, HD video sources like Blu-Ray players, cable converter boxes and gaming systems can be connected to the Super Slim projector.

“Casio is thrilled to introduce this new addition to the Super Slim projector line,” said Frank Romeo, Vice President of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “Business Professionals use and view content in ‘Wide screen’ format everyday and a WXGA resolution projector gives our customers the resolution and format they demand.”

The new models will also support connectivity for control through RS-232 and will be compatible with Crestron, Extron, and AMX products. All models are equipped with wide-angle 2X power zoom providing the highest magnification in a data projector, enabling projection from short distances of 2.8 feet and can reach a total of 30 feet. Boasting the world’s thinnest body*, Casio’s Super Slim measures only 1.26” at its thinnest point with an overall thickness of 1.69”.

The XJ-S43W model will be available through Casio’s authorized Pro AV Dealers and Resellers with a planned $999 MSRP. For more information please log on to www.superslimprojector.com.
