Casio XJ S30 Projector - Condenser lens
The Casio XJ-S35 and Casio XJ-S30 data projectors deliver 2000 ANSI lumens of brilliant light in a 43mm thin package (32 mm at thinnest point), thanks to Casio’s proprietary light source and cooling technologies. This makes it easy for users to carry the Casio XJ-S35 and Casio XJ-S30 along with a notebook PC for use in client meeting rooms and other bright locations, with no need to dim the lights, High-efficiency, thin-design optical unit An aspherical reflector and a condenser lens with a new shape maximize the characteristics of the light source lamp, enabling a dramatic reduction in the unit’s size. Single-fan, two-chamber cooling system The body is divided into two sections with a high static pressure fan located between the two. In addition, a heat pipe is provided in the exhaust section, a first for a projector, to disperse heat and provide efficient cooling in a small space.
Casio XJ S35 - Presentation without PC
Still images (JPEG/BMP) and video files (AVI format files compatible with MPEG 4 or Motion JPEG) stored on portable USB memory can be projected simply by inserting the USB memory device into the projector’s USB port. Even Microsoft PowerPoint files can be projected after converting them on a PC (with Windows 2000 or XP) using software that comes with the unit, enabling users to make smart and speedy presentations without a PC. Additionally, Casio’s YC-400 multi-functional camera system, which can project non-digital documents and three-dimensional objects on a screen, can also be directly connected without using a PC.
Casio S35 - Wireless Connection
Supports Wireless Connection with Windows PC (XJ-S35 Only) The Casio YW-2S USB Wireless Adapter is available as an option. Up to four Windows (2000 or XP) PCs can be wirelessly connected after installing simple software. This makes it easy to conduct meetings that bring together multiple presentations on different PCs in locations removed from the projector.
Casio Wide angle projectors - Zoom lens
The Casio XJ-S35 and Casio XJ-S30 projectors feature a wide-angle 2X zoom lens that is highly compact thanks to the use of a molded-glass aspherical lens for high image quality and a lead-screw drive system that puts lenses in-line within the lens tube. This enables images to be projected from as close as 0.84 m, or as far away as 1.7 to 3.4 m when using a 60” screen. This versatility allows for use in small meeting rooms to larger conference halls and classrooms.
