LAS VEGAS, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Casio America Inc. , a leader in the
digital projection industry, is proud to introduce two new systems ideal for a
variety of digital signage applications – the Projector Stacking System and
the YA-S10 Converter System. Featuring Casio's LampFree™ LASER & LED Hybrid
Light Source, the Projector Stacking System is available in two different
models, the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The YA-S10 Converter System features
cutting edge technology that allows a single projector to display images on
curved surfaces. Both systems will be exhibited in Casio's booth (#147) at the
Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 27-28, 2013.

"As a leading provider of digital projection technology, we are constantly
developing new applications that address the changing needs of the digital
projection/signage industry," said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio's
Business Projector Division. "We are confident that our new Projector Stacking
System and YA-S10 Converter System will increase efficiency and streamline
costs for retailers and business owners alike, further raising industry
standards and solidifying Casio's presence as an industry leader."

The Projector Stacking System, designed with two Casio projectors stacked on
top of one another, projects two sharp, high-quality images, which the YA-S10
Converter System control box then merges into one screen. It is available in
two different models; the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The XJ-SK650 features
double stacked Pro Series XJ-H2600 projectors and provides users with up to
6,500 lumens, while the XJ-SK600 features double stacked Signature Series
XJ-M250 projectors and provides up to 6,000 lumens. Both of these models
provide roughly twice the lumen output provided by a single projector.

The Projector Stacking System includes two (2) projectors, ceiling mount
housing and the YA-S10 Converter System control box, which corrects and merges
screen images. The system features high-precision correction and an interface
that allows easy modifications using a remote control. The YA-S10 Converter
System control box focuses on image alignment with each of the projectors in
the Stacking System. When the YA-S10 Converter System correction box is
connected, both projectors can also project high brightness images at any
angle making the Projector Stacking System ideal for digital signage, sports
bars, house of worship and many large venue applications.

When used separately Casio's YA-S10 Converter System enables users to project
images onto curved pillars, round areas, flat surfaces or any unique shape.
The system is set up to adjust any image misalignment or distortion without
the need for additional hardware. Using the YA-S10 Converter System with any
Casio LampFree™ projector, images can be corrected for curved surfaces using
free-form surface compensation with a lattice of up to 81 grid points for

Both the Projector Stacking System and Convex System are powered by Casio's
state-of-the-art LASER & LED HYBRID Light Source, which provides Lamp-Free,
eco-friendly data projection at a percentage of the cost of traditional
projectors. Casio's LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source combines blue laser light
and a fluorescent element to generate a high output of green light. The green
light, blue laser light, and the light emitted by a red LED are projected
through a DLP® chip which, in turn, is passed through the projection lens to
form an image. This technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared
with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector's total cost of ownership and
maximizing investment. Since there is only minimal loss of brightness even
during long-term use, it is ideal for those heavy-duty applications involving
frequent use of projection such as retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants,
offices and other environments. With an estimated life span of 20,000 hours,
both systems ensure low maintenance and streamlined costs.
