Casio shows off the Green Slim Projectors, for gamers

Gamers listen up. You know that 40-inch LCD you’re proud to show your friends when playing FIFA 11, the one that cost $1100. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a much bigger screen for that same price? Have you forgotten about projectors?

Casio has just announced its new Green Slim projectors that offer a huge display size of 100 inches or more. Great for those who want full immersion into the virtual world, the Green Slim projectors can display full-HD 1080p signals from a laser and LED hybrid light source – which lasts 20,000 hours.

For those gamers who want large-rich detail but remain on a budget, from $799-$1099, this neat product is easily obtainable.

Press Release Quick Specs:

Laser & LED hybrid light source that enables mercury-free, high-brightness projection
High-brightness projection is achieved without using a high-pressure mercury lamp by using blue light emitted by a blue laser, green light converted from blue laser light with a fluorescent element, and light emitted by a high-lumen red LED through a DLP® chip onto the screen

Longer-life light source
Use of the laser & LED hybrid light source increases the light source life to approximately 20,000 hours—nearly 10 times that of Casio’s conventional products (XJ-S58, etc.) with a high-pressure mercury lamp—which means less maintenance and lower operating costs. Up to 10 years at 5 hour per day.

2X Power Zoom lens
All GREEN SLIM Projectors have a powered 2X zoom lens for large- screen projection creating life-size gaming in any room

Superior color reproducibility increases presentation impact
The laser & LED hybrid light source greatly improves color purity compared to high-pressure mercury lamps

HDMI terminal
All models are equipped with an HDMI terminal that can transmit digital audio/video with only one cable. Game systems with an HDMI output can be directly connected to the GREEN SLIM for high quality HD gaming.
