The Casio XJ-A257 features a “Lamp Free” light source. The projector is equipped with a Laser & LED Hybrid light engine, which offers several great benefits. Since you are not running a traditional lamp that burns out after a few hundred or few thousand hours, you won’t have to source and purchase a new lamp, which saves on maintenance costs over time. Most traditional lamps contain the poisonous element mercury, so by eliminating a lamp that contains mercury, you also eliminate the possibility of accidental exposure while also being more environmentally friendly.
This Laser & LED Hybrid light engine provides an astounding 20,000 hours of life. That’s a lifespan of more than 2 years, 3 months of continuous 24/7 operation. At a pace of usage of eight hours a day, five days a week, the lifespan is a whopping 9 and a half years. The projector will be obsolete long before the light source reaches its end of life.
The Casio XJ-A257’s Laser & LED Hybrid light engine is a true technological breakthrough, combining a new semiconductor-based light source system with a blue laser, phosphor and a red LED, full brightness is reached in a mere 8 seconds. Bright images are possible even in rooms with bright ambient lighting, including open windows. This light source maintains its brightness for vivid image quality even through long-term use.
