This contract allows Casio and its dealers to provide new audio visual equipment – specifically its LampFree projectors – to government agencies throughout the State of New York for the next 5 years.
"Casio is dedicated to providing the best and most efficient opportunities to its dealers nationwide, so the company is thrilled to become a New York State contract-holder," said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing of Casio's Business Projector Division.

It also boasts electricity consumption that is approximately half that of a mercury projector. *1 Additionally, Casio's LampFree projectors reach maximum brightness in as fast as five seconds from the time the power is switched on.
