DOVER, N.J., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio America, Inc., a leading projector manufacturer, is proud to announce that its LampFree XJ-UT351WN Ultra Short Throw Projector has received the Tech & Learning 2017 Award of Excellence in the 'new product' category. A panel of Tech & Learning advisors tested hundreds of entries before choosing this year's winners which include innovative applications that break new ground as well as those that added significant enhancements to proven education tools.
"Thanks to the work of our educator judges, Tech & Learning is proud to announce this year's Awards of Excellence awardees," said Kevin Hogan, Content Director. "Our readers should feel confident that these technologies will enable them in the classroom, in the front office, and even off campus. Congratulations!"
Casio's LampFree XJ-UT351WN Ultra Short Throw projector is ideal for educators and school administrators because of its two HDMI ports, dust resistant design and ability to generate large images over a very short projection distance such as in classrooms. In particular, the built-in short throw lens and advanced mirror system provides an extremely close throw ratio (0.28:1) and projects an 80" image from just 1.5 feet away. It provides an output of up to 3,500 lumens, yet doesn't impact the teacher or student even if they're standing close to the screen. The hybrid Laser and LED light source eliminates the need for expensive and hazardous mercury lamps while delivering a 20,000 hour estimated operating life. The wireless adapter (optional) gives educators the ability to control the projector from a smartphone or tablet through Casio's C-Assist app.
"We continue our mission to provide educators with the most innovative and cutting-edge learning tools that allow them to take teaching to the next level, thus providing students with a better learning experience," said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing of Casio's Business Projector Division. "We are honored to receive the 2017 Award of Excellence from Tech & Learning Magazine. This recognition validates that we are meeting the mark with administrators and educators and fuels us to continue developing the next generation of LampFree projectors."
The XJ-UT351WN is available for purchase through Casio's National Pro AV dealer network and authorized distributors with a MSRP of $1,799.99. For additional information on Casio and its full portfolio of LampFree projectors, visit www.CasioLampFree.com.
