Casio has announced a number of new projectors, intended for the boardroom but compact enough to make them tempting to road-warriors and the occasionally entertained, too. All fitting into the Super Slim range, the four new models include two with “Super Color” technology and two with “Super Bright”; they each have a 2x power zoom, 1,800:1 contrast ratio, automatic & manual keystone correction and have a native XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution (or maximum UXGA 1,600 x 1,200).
The XJ-SC210 and SC215 both have 2500 lumen brightness, together with a new high-fidelity color-rendering light engine algorithm and improved color wheel that expands the chromaticity region by 10-percent over current models. The XJ-S52 and S57, meanwhile, have 3000 lumen brightness.
Both the SC215 and S57 have a built-in USB host port for plugging in memory sticks directly or, alternatively, a WiFi adaptor for wireless use. All models have RGA D-Sub and composite connections. They’ll launch in August, priced from $1,299 to $1,599.
