DOVER, NEW JERSEY, April 4, 2019
Company’s Portfolio of Projectors Continues to Lead the Industry with Innovative Features, A Lower Total Cost of Ownership and Service Life Up to 20,000 Hours
-Over the years, digital projection technology has changed a great deal to meet the needs of users, from better brightness to increased resolution and more features. Although the industry is ever-changing, there has always been one constant – Casio America, Inc.
Casio is a pioneer in the digital projection space and created the LampFree® category in 2010 with the introduction of its Laser/LED Hybrid Light Source. Since then, Casio has continued to innovate and deliver LampFree Projectors
that meet the needs of the commercial, business and education sectors without compromising the hallmarks it is known for – breakthrough technology, an unrivalled service life, a low total cost of ownership, an industry-leading warranty program, and more. In 2019, Casio is continuing its path of innovation with a new line of LampFree projectors and digital solutions that directly address the needs of its customers.
According to PMA Research1, Casio’s market share within the lamp-free projector category has increased by 68 percent over the past three years. Casio also had the highest unit share gain (55 percent) compared to other leading projector brands. Casio’s commitment to the industry is displayed through its full line of projectors including portable, multi-purpose, high brightness and ultra short throw units that are equipped with a variety of features fit for a multitude of environments. Casio’s projectors offer a variety of capabilities that will illuminate any room and aid in the creation of lively presentations and dynamic lessons.
“We pride ourselves in delivering innovative, affordable, high-quality projection solutions that ease the stress of presenters and IT managers," said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “Casio boasts the largest portfolio of lamp-free projectors available, and since their introduction, businesses and schools across the United States have integrated Casio’s LampFree projectors into their presentation environments. We are pleased with the progress we’ve made and will continue to raise the industry standard for LampFree technology for years to come."
Earlier this year, Casio announced its latest LampFree projector lineup – the Superior Series. The new series offers brightness up to 4000 lumens and is outfitted with the Company’s next generation, mercury-free Laser and LED hybrid light source – the R-Hybrid Light Source. The new R-Hybrid Light Source technology produces clear and brilliant colors while providing the same great cost-saving benefits of Casio’s previous technology including a service life of up to 20,000 hours without the need to change a lamp. Additional features include a 1.7X zoom lens, WUXGA resolution, and Casio’s suite of connection and presentation solutions, Educational Solutions.
