Features

TheXJ-A242 Slim Series 16:10 Multi-Media ProjectorfromCasioputs emphasis on portability, with a thickness of 1.7" and an adaptable 2x optical zoom and 1.2 to 2.2:1 throw ratio. The projector is perhaps most notable for its hybrid LED/laser light source that is estimated to last up to 20,000 hours and boasts lower power consumption (165 watts maximum) than tungsten-based alternatives. The light source generates 2500 lumens at full brightness, and the single-chip DLP imager features native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) which translates to a 16:10 aspect ratio. In addition, it can adapt to non-native resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) for computer sources and 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) for HDTV video sources.

For connection to a computer, Blu-ray or DVD player, A/V system, document camera, or just about any other video source, the XJ-A147 features an HDMI input, a VGA input, and a legacy composite input. The VGA input also supports component by using a separately available component (YCbCr/YPbPr) to VGA adapter or cable.

A wireless IR remote is included that works up to 16.4' away. For integration with automation systems like Crestron or control via custom software, there is an RS-232C port on a proprietary "mini" connector. You can adapt this port to work with standard 8- or 9-pin RS-232C cables and devices using the separately available YK-60 adapter and any additional RS-232 cables that might be required.

Laser/LED Hybrid Light Source
Combines the light produced by a laser array and an LED lamp to provide a light source that is more energy efficient than conventional projector lamps. It features a brightness of 2500 lumens in normal mode and a life up to 20,000 hours

Note:The Slim Hybrid Light Source can only be replaced by the Casio Factory Service Center. Disassembly of the projector and/or use of its technology or components for other purposes is potentially dangerous
2x Optical Zoom
Throw ratio is one of the most important characteristics of a projector - it tells you how wide the image will be at a given distance from the screen. Many portable projectors have 1.5x or less optical zoom, potentially forcing you to except a non-ideal image size when presenting in venues outside your control. With 2x optical zoom and a 1.2 to 2.2:1 throw ratio, the XJ-A242 gives you significantly greater flexibility compared to these projectors in terms of projection distance
Slim Form Factor
The XJ-A242 is designed to give you a foot print that is similar to a laptop, and be not much thicker either. Including protrusions, the dimensions are 11.7 x 8.3 x 1.7. On top of that it weighs in at 5.1 pounds
Single Chip DLP Technology
Uses a combination of a 0.65" chip covered in millions of micro-mirrors and a color wheel to produce an image. DLP features less spacing between pixels and better contrast than many comparable LCD-based systems, and the design does not require a filter that needs to be replaced
16:10 Native Aspect Ratio
This projector features a 16:10 native aspect ratio. This is considered a widescreen format, and comes very close to the 16:9 standard of HDTV. This format is ideal if you plan to show HD video, and can still be used for presentations - though in the case of PowerPoints some extra space may be leftover on the sides. The projector can show 4:3 too; however black bars (pillaring) will have to be applied, or the image will have to be stretched or cropped to fit
Automatic Brightness Adjustment
Adjusts lumen output based on the level of ambient light detected in the room to help conserve power and reduce eye-strain from over-bright images
