Casio XJ-A242 Slim Series 16:10 Multi-Media Projector

The XJ-A242 Slim Series 16:10 Multi-Media Projector from Casio puts emphasis on portability, with a thickness of 1.7" and an adaptable 2x optical zoom and 1.2 to 2.2:1 throw ratio. The projector is perhaps most notable for its hybrid LED/laser light source that is estimated to last up to 20,000 hours and boasts lower power consumption (165 watts maximum) than tungsten-based alternatives. The light source generates 2500 lumens at full brightness, and the single-chip DLP imager features native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) which translates to a 16:10 aspect ratio. In addition, it can adapt to non-native resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) for computer sources and 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) for HDTV video sources.

For connection to a computer, Blu-ray or DVD player, A/V system, document camera, or just about any other video source, the XJ-A147 features an HDMI input, a VGA input, and a legacy composite input. The VGA input also supports component by using a separately available component (YCbCr/YPbPr) to VGA adapter or cable.

A wireless IR remote is included that works up to 16.4' away. For integration with automation systems like Crestron or control via custom software, there is an RS-232C port on a proprietary "mini" connector. You can adapt this port to work with standard 8- or 9-pin RS-232C cables and devices using the separately available YK-60 adapter and any additional RS-232 cables that might be required.

Laser/LED Hybrid Light SourceM
Combines the light produced by a laser array and an LED lamp to provide a light source that is more energy efficient than conventional projector lamps. It features a brightness of 2500 lumens in normal mode and a life up to 20,000 hours

Note: The Slim Hybrid Light Source can only be replaced by the Casio Factory Service Center. Disassembly of the projector and/or use of its technology or components for other purposes is potentially dangerous

2x Optical Zoom
Throw ratio is one of the most important characteristics of a projector - it tells you how wide the image will be at a given distance from the screen. Many portable projectors have 1.5x or less optical zoom, potentially forcing you to except a non-ideal image size when presenting in venues outside your control. With 2x optical zoom and a 1.2 to 2.2:1 throw ratio, the XJ-A242 gives you significantly greater flexibility compared to these projectors in terms of projection distance
