The What: Casio America, Inc. has added a new introductory model to its portfolio of projector offerings. The EcoLite XJ-V1 projector provides educators and business professionals with the ability to enjoy many of the benefits of Casio's LampFree projectors in a budget friendly package.The What Else: EcoLite is powered by Casio's fifth generation LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology.

Casio's LampFree technology also eliminates the need to replace expensive and hazardous mercury lamps which makes them cost effective and safer for the environment.
