Casio India Co. Pvt. Ltd. (CIC) has launched its EcoLite XJ-V1 projector, which combines high brightness, amplified colour spectrum and an eco-friendly design in India.

The projector is powered by Casio's 5th generation Laser & LED Hybrid Light Source technology, which combines a laser, fluorescent element and LEDs to generate high brightness, 20,000-hour estimated lifespan with minimal brightness degradation and continuous operation. It also provides a 30 percent increase in LED light output, thus offering a greater increase in colour spectrum when compared to a mercury lamp.

The projector also reduces power consumption for lower CO2 emissions and reduces the perilous impact of mercury in the environment. 

The XJ-V1 projector consumes half the amount of power per unit than traditional lamp-based projectors. Power consumption with even the brightest setting is only 180Watt. The eco-mode reduces power consumption by 50 percent. The LampFree technology also ensures less maintenance and eliminates the need to replace expensive and hazardous mercury lamps, which makes them cost effective and safer for the environment.
