Dover, N.J. -
Casio America said Tuesday it has expanded the company's Green Slim DLP
projector line with four models, each offering increased brightness

Models XJ-A255V,
XJ-A250, XJ-A155V and XJ-A150 all share Casio's mercury-free, laser and LED
Hybrid Light Source technology, and are capable of 3,000 lumens of brightness.

Developed under
the company's "clean and green" concept, the new projectors eliminate the need
for mercury bulbs with the production of a long-lasting light source.

The projectors
target a variety of applications, including business, education, digital
signage, home entertainment and gaming, Casio said.

"Casio is proud to
build on the Green Slim line of mercury-free projectors with the addition of
the 3,000-lumen models," said Frank Romeo, Casio's business projector division
VP. "The additions demonstrate the advancements of technology and convey
Casio's commitment to establishing the Casio Hybrid Light source as the
industry's premier solid state lighting solution."

Two of the models,
including the XJ-A255V/XJ-A250, will be available with native WXGA resolution
at 1,280 by 800 pixels (16:10).

Models XJ-A155V/XJ-A150
feature XGA (1,024 by 768) resolution.

XJ-A255V/XJ-A155V can project JPEG/BMP files (AVI format: Motion JPEG) all without
a PC using the included EZ Converter and ArcSoft Media Converter 3 software and
commercially available USB memory.

USB-enabled models can project presentations without a PC or communicate
wirelessly with PCs.

They communicate
wirelessly using an included wireless 802.11b/g/n adapter and can be wirelessly
connected with up to 32 Windows computers simultaneously with up to four PCs
displayed on screen at one time.

All models are
equipped with an HDMI input.

The Green Slim
models will be available at A/V dealers and select reseller partners starting
in November with suggested retails ranging from $1,499 to $1,799, Casio said.
