Press Release CASIO’S NEW FAMILY OF HYBRID LASER & LED PROJECTORS TO FEATURE COMPREHENSIVE SET OF SOLUTIONS DESIGNED FOR THE PRO AV MARKET Business Projector Division Strengthens Its Commitment to Increase Market Presence DOVER, NJ, March 29, 2011 — Casio America, Inc., a leader in digital projection technology, today announced the introduction of a new family of lamp-free eco-friendly data projectors. Equipped with Casio’s revolutionary LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source, the family of 12 new projectors is capable of achieving high-brightness projection output up to 3,500 lumens, and includes a number of innovative and interactive features. To meet growing market demand for its solutions, Casio has expanded its Business Projector Division, adding three new hires and four new sales representative companies. “Casio is thrilled to announce this new family of projectors along with its commitment to the expansion of its projector business,” said Frank Romeo, vice president of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “Our new line will provide our customers with all of the advantages of Casio’s unique LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source plus superior brightness, an energy-saving interactive experience and features designed  for the business, education, Pro AV, digital signage and home entertainment markets.” The rollout of three new categories of projectors, Signature, PRO and Short-Throw, will start this Summer and offer features and functionality, including; 3D Capability, Intelligent Brightness Control, Interactive Whiteboard & Pointing and MobiShow® function.

The Interactive Whiteboard & Pointing function enables users to maintain control of the PC by positioning the pointer at the projection screen as well as write on the screen when utilizing the Presentation Draw software, a perfect tool to incorporate into classroom lessons and business presentations.
