CASIO LASER & LED HYBRID LIGHT SOURCE AWARDED BEST NEW PROJECTION TECHNOLOGY BY RAVE PUBLICATIONS AT INFOCOMM 2012

rAVe Publications "Best of Show" awards are chosen annually by a team of editors

DOVER, NJ, August 15, 2012 - Each year, rAVe Publications honors the most innovative manufacturers and companies at InfoComm-a trade show designed to showcase the latest technologies within the audiovisual, information communications and systems integration industries-with "Best of Show" Awards. This year, Casio was awarded "Best New Projection Technology" for its revolutionary LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source.


Now in its third generation, Casio's LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source combines a Blue laser, a fluorescent element and LEDs to generate high brightness, while eliminating the need for expensive projection lamps that often need replacement. Casio introduced the world's first LASER & LED, lamp-free projectors in 2010 and has since expanded its portfolio to include four different lines that are equipped with a variety of features fit for a multitude of environments: Pro, Short Throw, Signature and Slim.

Due to the lamp-free technology, Casio's LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source provides a reduced total cost of ownership and allows users to count on a 20,000 hour estimated life span. On average, users will save hundreds of dollars after approximately 6,000 hours of use compared to traditional mercury lamps. All Casio Laser & LED Hybrid Projectors 3000 lumens and higher are also backed by a 5 year or 10,000 light source warranty.

"We are honored to receive the rAVe Publications award for 'Best New Projection Technology' at InfoComm 2012 for our LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source,' said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio's Business Projector Division. "We will continue to be innovators within the lamp-free sector and aim to expand our lineup with a next generation LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source. Stay tuned"
