ISE 2014: Casio unveils new XJ-SK600 Dual Projection System4 February 2014
At ISE 2014 Casio is introducing a new Dual Projection System that is bright enough to be used in well-lit spaces. The XJ-SK600 combines two projectors (projecting the same image) with a Geometric Correction Box and a sturdy, black stacking box, which acts as a casing.
The result, says Casio, is a strong light output of up to 6,000 ANSI lumens from a laser and LED hybrid light source. The correction software synchronises the two overlapping images to produce a distortion-free image. The image is claimed to remain bright and clear, even on projection surfaces with a screen size of up to 7.5m (300in).
The light source promises a long service life as the mercury-free laser and LED hybrid can be used for up to 20,000 hours, making the DLP 1,280×800 (WXGA) projectors “eminently suitable for 24-hour use”. Where power is turned off overnight, the projector does not need to be shut down separately as it does not require a cooldown phase. When it is switched back on it is ready to use in just five seconds.
The Geometric Correction Box (YA-S10) evens out uneven surfaces with ease. Even the slightest distortions can be levelled out by pressing a button on the remote control. Projections on otherwise tricky canvases, such as warped screens or rounded-columns, are no problem.
