With a global market share of 80% in the Laser & LED Hybrid projector segment, we have continued to be a technological innovator in mercury lamp-free projectors with over 2,500 lumen brightness.”
True to its tagline, “Lamp Free for a Brighter Future”, Casio’s Hybrid projectors help contribute to environmental conservation by eliminating the use of mercury lamps. With a Laser and LED Hybrid light source, it means that the projectors do not contribute to mercury or carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
Moreover, Casio’s projectors have a prolonged lifespan of up to 20,000 hours (approximately 10 times that of mercury lamp projectors) and require approximately half the energy consumption of mercury lamp projectors, enabling greater cost savings in the long term. This yields a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with Laser & LED Hybrid light source projectors and eliminating the hassle of routine maintenance and lamp replacements.
“Over the past 6 years, we are the world’s number 1 Laser/LED Projector brand. This is the first time that we officially introduce projectors and a sole distributor in Thailand. We are confident that SVOA will be a major driving force to enable our expansion to cover all target sectors such as private, government and education,” added Mr. Shinjo.

Both Advanced and Core series’ feature a 1.5x optical zoom lens that enables more flexibility in projector placement at varying locations and an Instant Light Control function that makes it easier to adjust brightness for better image quality no matter the lighting condition. The Advanced Series also offers an more display format options with HDMI terminal connections.
All models can reach maximum brightness in less than five seconds, and can shut down immediately without the need for a cool-down period, reducing set-up time and improving efficiency in a boardroom or classroom setting.
