Casio launches projector series with one click wireless connectivity
Casio has announced the launch of its 4,000 lumens WUXGA Superior Series XJ-S400 projectors.
Created for ICT classrooms which actively encourage student engagement via PC and smart devices, the Superior Series features a one click connection for up to 40 devices over a wireless network, moderator function, PC and projector remotes and auto projector off.
Encouraging the use of multiple content inputs, the teacher can easily switch between different devices without the stress of connecting cables.
The new series offers four models; XJ-S400UN, XJ-S400WN, XJ-S400U, XJ-S400, with a 1.7x optical zoom and WUXGA or WXGA resolution. The 4,000-lumens brightness uses the new R-Hybrid Light Source providing 20,000 hours of operating time and eliminating mercury and lamp replacements from its specifications.
