Casio offers a free mobile app that enables users to capture, save, annotate and display content from their mobile devices. Users can also show images from their Internet browser, in real time. The app is available for Apple and Android devices.

AV inputs on the new projector include dual RGB (mini D-Sub 15 pin), HDMI, composite video, S-video, dual stereo minijacks. AV outputs include 3.5 mm stereo minijack, variable audio and analog RGB. Networking and control ports include USB, RS-232, and wired (RJ-45) and wireless LAN. The unit supports AMX, Crestron, Extron and SP Controls systems.

The XJ-UT310WN will be available this summer, through Casio's reseller network, at an MSRP of $1,999.99. The projector includes a three-year warranty, for parts and labor, as well as a five-year warranty or 10,000 hour warranty for the Hybrid Laser & LED light source.
