The industry is about to see a new 4K projector from Casio America, which will ship the XJ-L8300HN lamp-free projector in June of this year. Featuring native 4K (UHD) resolution (3840×2160) and a brightness spec. of 5,000 lumens, the new projector uses a new 4K DLP chip and will include a 1.5:1 zoom lens.
Spec’d to last over 20,000 hours, the light source is an all-laser solid-state design. Inputs include VGA, two HDMI ports, one HDBaseT, component video and RS232 control as well as network control. It’s not a small projector — it weighs over 40 pounds, but it’s aimed at rental/staging or fixed install for large meeting rooms and classrooms. Lens shift for the XJ-L8300HN is ± 60 percent up or down, ± 25 percent left or right. Here is a PDF with the detailed specs available or you can see it here on their website.
