What Our Experts Think About The Casio XJ-A145
The Casio XJ-A145 projector is the worlds first bright lamp less projector, powered by a laser/Led light source the new Casio range has eco credentials second to none. It would also win favour on it's aesthetic quality being the thinnest Projector in the Industry at only 1.7 Inches Thick!
The 20,000 hour lamp life makes the XJ-A145 projector a very cost effective solution over its life, but there are some drawbacks.. fan noise is high so if you need something whisper quiet then this projector may not be for you. Image quality is below average with poor colour accuracy which is surprising as LED should produce accurate colour reproduction, colours are a little flat with a greyish hue to the image, saying that apart from the fan noise the image quality is acceptable if you don't use a lot of yellow or white.......
The 2x zoom makes it very flexible in terms of throw distance and auto keystone ensures a quick set-up, video performance via its HDMI input is also pretty good. We have a demo unit available for trial and for quantity enquiries we are able to send a loan unit out for you to evaluate.
With no lamp to replace there is no need to spend approx £200 a year or so down the line ( varies according to usage) to replace the lamp and under normal operationg conditions you can expect to get up to 20,000 hours use from the Casio XJ-A145 - now thats a serious amount of trouble free presenting!
Education warranty available : 3 years projector warranty + 5 years or 10,000 hour light source
What the Manufacturer Says
What the Manufacturer Says
The Casio XJ-A145 is equipped with new Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source to realise the world's first mercury free high-brightness projector.
• Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source supporting high-brightness projection without mercury
CASIO developed a new semiconductor light source technology combining a red LED, phosphor and a blue laser. This source achieves high luminance safely by employing a phosphor device to modify the wavelengths and phases of blue laser light.
• CASIO's innovative mobile styling has resulted in an A4-size projector with high-brightness
It measures just 43 mm in thickness and 2.3 kg in weight equipped with Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source succeeded up to 3,000 ANSI lumens (XJ-A255/A250/A155/A150). It slips neatly into a slim briefcase with documents and travels with you easily to make clear presentations even in a not dim room.
• Enhanced colour reproduction for higher-impact presentations
The dramatically enhanced colour purity achieved by our Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source technology results in superior colour reproducibility and brighter, more beautiful colouration. High-purity colour visual effects also generate brighter images, enabling you to present clear, powerful visuals.
• Long-life light source with reduced brightness degradation
Adopting a new semiconductor-based system has enabled CASIO to realize 10 times of longer light source life of approximately 20,000 hours. Compared with conventional high-brightness projectors employing mercury lamps (such as XJ-S58), this cuts the cost as well as the time and effort involved in exchanging lamps dramatically, while at the same time maintaining clear, high-quality images over an extended period by reducing the tendency toward degradation of the brightness.
• Quick startup/shutdown for presentation ease
The projector reaches its maximum brightness as quickly as 8 seconds after it's turned on, significantly shortening the time before you start your presentation. Since it doesn't need time to cool down afterwards, either, you can conduct your presentations cleanly and efficiently, from setting up to packing up.
• Wide-angle 2x zoom capability for positioning freedom
The wide-angle 2x zoom* lens boosts magnification to the highest level among data projectors
• HDMI terminal
AV equipments or PC with HDMI output terminal can be connected to the projector with a single cable. This enables you to project high-definition images on a large screen while maintaining high image quality.
• USB terminal
To make presentations without a PC, simply save your presentation materials such as Excel, Word, PPT, PDF data*, image (JPEG/BMP) and even movie (Motion JPEG/AVI format) in a USB memory device commercially available and project them directly from the projector (USB 2.0-compliant).
Meanwhile, CASIO's Multi-functional camera system YC400/430 can be connected directly to projectors.
