The XJ-A142 Slim Series 4:3 Multi-Media Projector from Casio
puts emphasis on portability, with a thickness of 1.7" and an adaptable
2x optical zoom and 1.4 to 2.8:1 throw ratio. The projector is perhaps
most notable for its hybrid LED/laser light source that is estimated to
last up to 20,000 hours and boasts lower power consumption (155 watts
maximum) than tungsten-based alternatives. The light source generates
2500 lumens at full brightness, and the single-chip DLP imager features
native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) which translates to a 4:3 aspect
ratio. In addition, it can adapt to non-native resolutions up to 1600 x
1200 (UXGA) for computer sources and 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) for HDTV
For connection to a computer, Blu-ray or DVD
player, A/V system, document camera, or just about any other video
source, the XJ-A147 features an HDMI input, a VGA input, and a legacy
composite input. The VGA input also supports component by using a
separately available component (YCbCr/YPbPr) to VGA adapter or cable.
A wireless IR remote is included that works up to 16.4' away. For
integration with automation systems like Crestron or control via custom
software, there is an RS-232C port on a proprietary "mini" connector.
You can adapt this port to work with standard 8- or 9-pin RS-232C cables
and devices using the separately available YK-60 adapter and any
additional RS-232 cables that might be required.
