DOVER, N.J., July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio is known as a trailblazer in many business units within the electronics industry with several first-to-market products including the first consumer digital camera with built-in LCD, first graphing calculator and first digital watch. As it relates to the audio/visual industry, Casio's R&D team set out to develop a new means of projection that eliminated mercury bulbs based on environmental issues and also reduced the size of the projector while improving performance. Casio introduced the LampFree® category in 2010 with the introduction of its Laser/LED Hybrid Light Source and has been expanding its offerings ever since. Not only does the Company's suite of LampFree projectors offer sustainability and environmental benefits, it also boasts an overall lower total cost of ownership and an industry-leading warranty.
"We understand our customers' desire for projection technology that not only improves the financial bottom line but is also eco-friendly and innovative - this is why we developed our LampFree suite of projectors," said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing of Casio's Business Projector Division. "We will continue to improve upon our technology and provide customers with projection solutions that meet their needs now and in the years to come."
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Casio's full line of LampFree® projectors provides eco-friendly data projection by combining a laser and LED light source to create a high-brightness, mercury-free tool that uses up to half the amount of power per unit than other lamp-based projectors. The Company's LampFree projectors' long operating life of up to 20,000 hours and the ability to run all day in extended-use applications make them an affordable, low maintenance solution for corporate, education, and retail environments. They are also equipped with a brightness control sensor that senses the ambient light in the room and automatically adjusts the projector to the optimal brightness level, reducing energy consumption when high brightness is not needed. Casio's projectors are a safer and more affordable choice for those looking to not only go green but save money at the same time.
Over the years, Casio has eliminated over 40 pounds of mercury from the waste stream, which represents more the 300,000 projector lamps. Not only do users save on lamp replacements and the costs of disposing hazardous Mercury lamps, they save money on electricity as well. When using Casio LampFree projectors with the Eco-mode on, users can save up to 50 percent of energy costs compared to a conventional projector with mercury-vapor lamps. This reduces a facility's carbon footprint and supports sustainability initiatives; a priority interest for many organizations.
All Casio projectors are backed by an industry leading three-year parts and labor warranty with up to 6,000 hours on the light source.1 And select models are covered for five-years or 10,000 hours on the light source. The warranty makes Casio's already low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) on its LampFree projectors even better. Users can expect to save time, money, and aggravation using these low-maintenance projectors during the warranty period.
