CASIO has applied its unique new Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source to achieve breakthrough development of a mercury-free high-brightness
projector. Adopting a new semiconductor-based light source system combining a blue laser, phosphor and a red LED, we have achieved both
high-brightness performance enabling projection in well-lit rooms and environmental friendliness with mercury eliminated from the light source.
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.

The light sources life of approximately 20,000 hours far outshines that of conventional projectors that require mercury lamp replacement. It saves
maintenance labor and contributes to a significant reduction in operating costs. Since brightness degradation is more gradual than with mercury
lamps, moreover, it maintains vivid image quality through long-term use.
Projection at maximum brightness is achieved in as few as five seconds, and the time from startup to screen display is shortened dramatically,
facilitating more effective use of limited time. No cooling down is necessary, moreover, when the power is turned OFF. Users can complete the
process from setting up to packing up smartly and speedily.

The dramatic improvement in color purity achieved by the new light source has significantly improved color reproduction. Not only are the colors
clearer and more beautiful, but the projected images also look brighter due to the visual effects of the high-purity colors. Users benefit from
clearer, more powerful images than conventional projectors can achieve.
A DLP 3D projection function* enables stereoscopic image display that is impossible with 2D projection. This can enhance viewers'
understanding of presentation contents. A built-in 5W speaker further expands the possibilities for presentations.

Note: Separately available 3D Glasses for CASIO Projectors (YA-G30) are required for 3D image viewing. See Options.
A wireless LAN function (IEEE802.11b/g) with MobiShow* compatibility is installed for versatility. Wireless connection with smart
phones and other mobile devices as well as with Windows PCs is also possible. The inclusion of a USB 2.0 host function* enables users
to project presentation materials saved in USB memory with no PC connection.

CASIOs next-generation projectors are equipped with AV terminals, such as HDMI and S-Video suitable for high-quality projection, as well as PC
input terminals. Audio output and PC control terminals add further to their ability to respond to a wide variety of user requirements.

TheXJ-M240 Signature Model ProjectorfromCasiofeatures 2500 lumens and 1800:1 contrast ratio which yields improved color performance with an emphasis on natural color by refining a waveform based on the lamp spectrum and color wheel characteristics. This brilliant color rendition is brought to screen sizes from 35 - 300" (889 - 7620mm) with a XGA resolution and a 1.5x optical zoom - impressive specs for a projector.
The wide connectivity includes HDMI, component, composite and S-video. Other convenience features include superior color, high brightness and the projector is a Casio Laser and LED hybrid device. The low fan noise means that it will be seen and not heard whether rear projected, ceiling or table mounted. And the projector features a 5W monaural speaker.
Finally, the Casio Signature Model Projector has increased I/O connectivity, is 3D ready and has auto brightness adjustment to save power and reduce eye fatigue.
