Manufacturer of consumer electronics and business equipment solutions Casio America, has announced the launch of its new initiative which targets the space world. The company has come up with its new Signature XJ-M256 LampFree projector that has been sent to the International Space Station. The projector is available through Casio’s National Pro AV dealer network and authorised distributors. This is happening for the first time when a projector is being used on the International Space Station in this capacity.
The new product will be used by crew members for onboard training activities. This will help in various activities such as spacewalking and complex robotics. The crew members will make use of this product in video conferencing with support staff on the ground. Not only for proffesional use, the new LampFree projector can be used for entertainment purposes (watching TV or movies.)
From the features perspective, the Signature XJ-M256 is powered by Casio’s fifth generation LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology. This technology delivers quality colour spectrum when compared to a mercury lamp. The LampFree light source provides high brightness and a 20,000 hour estimated lifespan with minimal brightness degradation and continuous operation for a low total cost of operation. Each model of this new series is fitted with a fully connectable interface, offering 3D graphic experience. It includes video and audio inputs, as well as HDMI, RGB and RS-232C terminals.
