Casio Intros New WXGA Short Throw Projector


Casio America announced today that it has expanded its LampFree line of projectors with the introduction of the XJ-UT311WN Ultra Short Throw Projector. 

Designed for displaying images at close range, the XJ-UT311WN has a built-in 0.28:1 fixed lens and a mirror system that projects an 80” image from just 1.5 feet away (up to 110” diagonal). The XJ-UT311WN is 3,100 lumens of brightness and native WXGA (1280×800) resolution and has a 20,000:1 contrast ratio.

In addition to projecting at close range, the XJ-UT311WN is equipped with Casio’s unique cool-running Laser and LED Hybrid Light Engine that lasts for up to 20,000 hours without ever needing to replace costly lamps or filters and requires minimal maintenance. This technology combines a laser and LED light source to create a high-brightness, mercury-free tool that uses up to half the amount of power per unit than other lamp-based projectors. 

All the tech details are here.
