DOVER, N.J., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether consumers enjoy battling it out in adventure video games or prefer to be on the edge-of-their-seats during intense sports video games, the need to be part of the action instead of on the sidelines is rapidly growing for homeowners. According to a December 2014 study from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), 47 percent of customers specifically ask builders for multi-room audio and video systems when designing their new homes, which is a 21 percent increase over 2013. Casio America, Inc., the leading manufacturer of LampFree® projectors, meets that customer need by offering homeowners and gamers alike a first-class upgrade with its SLIM series of projectors.
The CEA's 13th Annual State of Builder Technology market study* states that 25 percent of all homes now have a home theater room dedicated to video games, movies and forms of entertainment. When looking for an entertainment solution for a new house or when renovating an existing game room, Casio's SLIM LampFree® projectors are a great option as they are portable, require little to no maintenance, and are affordable.
"According to market research, it is clear that homeowners strongly desire built-in technologies that enhance the overall entertainment experience at home. We know this is a growing space and we want to provide video game fanatics options that hit the sweet spot of quality, price, features, and usability," said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing, Casio's Business Projector Division. "Casio's SLIM projectors are the answer as they are equipped with a variety of innovative features at an affordable price and offer clearer colors and brighter images ideal for the visual world of gaming."
Weighing in at just five pounds, Casio's SLIM projectors are only 1.7 inches thick, require little to no setup time and provide projection at maximum brightness in as few as five seconds allowing for a truly immersive gaming experience. The SLIM series of LampFree® projectors also features Casio's proprietary LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source, which combines a laser, a fluorescent element, and LEDs to eliminate the use of mercury and generate high brightness. Casio's SLIM projectors offer an estimated 20,000 hours lifespan with minimal brightness degradation and continuous operation, which far outshines that of conventional projectors that require mercury lamp replacements. Each model is fitted with a fully connectable interface, including three types of video and audio inputs, as well as HDMI, RGB and RS-232C terminals.
Casio's LampFree® SLIM projectors come with a standard three (3) year parts and labor warranty plus a three (3) year or 6,000 hour warranty on the LASER & LED Hybrid Light source. The SLIM models are available with a MSRP starting at $949.99 at www.shopcasio.com. For additional information on Casio and its full portfolio of LampFree® projectors, visit www.CasioLampFree.com.
