Up until now, projection technology has required a tradeoff between brightness and environmental impact. Mercury lamps achieve high-lumen brightness; however they need to be disposed of carefully to protect the environment. Casio's Laser & LED Hybrid light engine 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 light source technology achieves an increase in color spectrum compared with a mercury lamp, while lowering a projector's total cost of ownership. The 20,000 hour estimated life means years of reliable operation, up to 10 years at five hours per day, reducing down time and saving replacement cost when compared to mercury lamps.

"Our Laser & LED Hybrid light engine reflects Casio's tradition of creating advanced technology without sacrificing integrity or quality," said Frank Romeo, vice president of Casio's Business Projector Division. "By providing longer operation time for digital signage applications, our light engine will save the average user $800 after only 6,000 hours."
