Casio Inc. (www.casioprojector.com) has entered the data projector market with two new high-luminosity mobile projector models, the XJ-350 and XJ-450. Both projectors employ an innovative condenser lens and light source lamp that deliver high-brightness images, which can be clearly viewed under normal lighting conditions. The 3.9 lb. XJ-350 delivers an amazing 2,200 lumens of brightness from a small 9" x 7" x 2" size configuration, while the XJ-450 delivers 2,800 lumens of brightness. Both projectors feature DLP technology, a 2X optical zoom lens with a range of 32"-10.5', and a native XGA resolution (with compression for UXGA). The XJ-450 also includes a phase differential sensor system for automatic vertical and horizontal keystone correction, as well as automatic focus.
