CASIO Middle East today unveiled the 4000-lumens WUXGA projector Superior Series XJ-S400 models which feature a range of technological advances that will invigorate teaching in the region’s classrooms. The Superior Series projectors are optimized for the modern classroom, easy, single-step set-up as well as a Moderator Function that allows for greater student participation.
The Super Series of Casio Projectors offer industry-leading green technology that provides a reduced environmental impact as well as a lower total cost of ownership. Casio’s unique optical engine combines a laser with LED (entirely mercury-free) and has a lifetime of approximately 20,000 hours. Coupled with the energy saved by its laser and LED technology, the optical engine’s low maintenance reduces costs usually associated with other projectors and allows funds to be focused on learning.
Wireless projection can be completed by simply clicking on the dedicated icon for each classroom. Less time is needed for chores like cable connection, input switching, and wireless setup. Creation of the icons and the wireless connection setup can be collectively managed on a browser by the IT manager.
The Moderator Function enables teachers to collectively control projected content from up to 40 devices. Teachers can use their smartphone or tablet to select and project the student’s PC from anywhere in the classroom. Also, four PC screens can be projected at the same time, which is useful in comparing content and for discussions.
The PC on the teacher’s desk and the projector can be controlled remotely from the teacher’s smartphone or tablet itself so there is no need for the teacher to constantly return to their desk to operate the PC, nor to carry a projector controller.
With Auto Projection OFF, the projector display automatically turns off when projection input signals are no longer detected. This happens, for example, when the projection app is closed or stopped, or the cable is pulled out in case of cable connection. Projection resumes immediately if the projector detects input signals again within twenty minutes. The projector power source will also turn off automatically twenty minutes after the projector display is turned off.
