CASIO INTRODUCES SUPER SLIM PROJECTORS WITH 2X ZOOM LENS - MODELS XJ-S35 AND XJ-S30XJ-S35 Enables Presentations without a PC
CASIO's CASSIOPEIA® PRO series, introduced at the end of 2003, is well known for its compact size and brightness. CASSIOPEIA® PRO also won kudos for being the first data projector with a wide-angle 2X zoom lens. This series of projectors has won rave reviews from both businesses and schools, and are used for a broad range of applications.
With the new Super Slim Projector (models XJ-S35 and XJ-S30), CASIO has made components such as the projection lens and light source much smaller, achieving a significant reduction in the height of the unit to just 1.69" (1.26" at the thinnest point). In addition, the high-end XJ-S35 model enables users to make PowerPoint and other presentations without a PC. A whole new breed of communication tool, the Super Slim Projector expands on what users can do through innovations in both form and function.
The Super Slim Projector's wide-angle 2X zoom lens gives it the best range of any data projector on the market—images can be projected from as close as 2.7'. It also delivers remarkable brightness of 2000 ANSI lumens, so users can make presentations without dimming the lights.
This groundbreaking new mobile projector is great for small, everyday meetings and major presentations—and everything in between.
Accompanying the new data projectors, CASIO is also introducing the YP-100 Multi-Functional Presentation Kit, an accessory that acts as a support tool for presentations that use data projectors. Casio Computer Co., Ltd., will start shipping the YP-100 in the third quarter of 2006.
"Casio is excited to introduce these two new super slim projectors", said Bob Garbutt, General Manager of Casio's Business Projector Division. "The versatility of the XJ-S35 and XJ-S30 projectors, with their super slim design and powerful zoom lens, make them the perfect business companion", he continued.
