CasioÃ‚Â introduced its first LampFree Ultra Short Throw projector Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the XJ-UT310WN. With brightness up to 3100 lumens and an ultra short throw ratio of 0.28:1, CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new XJ-UT310WN is the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brightest LampFree Ultra Short Throw projector* available. Primarily designed for the education market where Ultra Short throw projectors are becoming the standard, the XJ-UT310WN offers WXGA resolution and required connectivity plus a suite of application tools which easily integrate todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mobile technology into the classroom.Ã‚Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We take great pride in developing ground-breaking LampFree projectors that lead the way in education technology and our new Ultra Short Throw projector does just that,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Matt Mustachio, general manager of CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Business Projector Division. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It will fundamentally change the status quo in the education space, and deliver the benefits of LampFree projection to schools and educators while providing enhanced features that will illuminate any classroom.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Weighing less than 13 pounds, CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XJ-UT310WN not only enables projection from data files stored on a USB memory device, ** but also allows wireless connection to smart phones*** and computers via wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11b/g). The built in 2 GB of memory allows many file formats, such as PDF and QuickTime, to be stored in the projector for quick and easy playback. A full range of input terminals including HDMI RGB and video inputs provide connectivity to standard hardware sources. Audio inputs and a built in 16 watt speaker ensure all students can hear and a microphone terminal allows for teacher sound reinforcement. Ideal for classroom use, CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XJ-UT310WN projector provides a 0.28:1 throw ratio using a mirror system which allows up to a 23Ã¢â‚¬Â throw distance for a 67Ã¢â‚¬Â image. This ultra short throw projector also has a new structure that has been developed to minimize deterioration of brightness due to dust.Ã‚Â The XJ-UT310WN even enables educators to display content from a mobile device, which can also be used to control presentations eliminating the need for additional hardware and equipment.
Using CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s free mobile application Ã¢â‚¬â€œ compatible with both Apple and Android Ã¢â‚¬â€œ educators can easily integrate technology into the classroom. The mobile application allows educators to display and annotate presentations from a mobile device, as well as capture and save. In addition, educators can open an Internet browser and display content in real-time. There is also an image capture function using the mobile deviceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s camera to snap an image and send it to the projector.
Finally, educators and IT managers will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s LampFree projectors in an Ultra Short Throw format with the XJ-UT310WN. No longer required to replace unsafe mercury lamps, the new XJ-UT310WN will help streamline costs and deliver a 20,000 hour estimated life due to CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projectorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s total cost of ownership and maximizing investment.
CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XJ-UT310WN comes with a standard three (3) year parts and labor warranty plus a five (5) year or 10,000 hour warranty on the Hybrid Laser & LED light source. The XJ-UT310WN will be available in Q3 2014 with an MSRP of $1,999.99 and available for purchase through CasioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s National Pro AV dealer network and authorized distributors.
