Casio is a leading manufacturer of projectors and holds a global market share of 60%1 for SSI light source projectors with 2,500 lumens or more. The company’s portfolio of LampFree® projectors combines a laser, a fluorescent element and an LED light to deliver a mercury-free hybrid light source that lasts up to 20,000 hours while sustaining a high brightness and keeping maintenance costs to a minimum. Casio has four series of LampFree® projectors that are available in South Africa through PanSolutions, including Slim, Core, Advanced, and Ultra Short Throw.

In line with developments in international health and environmental safety regulations2, Casio’s projectors are mercury-free. Casio aims to help to reduce the burden on the environment by promoting the shift to a lamp-free standard in the projector market. The company’s patented LampFree® technology removes the need to replace hazardous and expensive bulbs. This not only keeps hardware costs down but also reduces overall maintenance costs. Most importantly, the technology eliminates any possible health and environmental risks associated with exposure to and elimination of mercury, a highly toxic element used in the manufacture of compact and linear fluorescent lamps.

Johan Oosthuizen, projector sales manager, PanSolutions explains “The innovative lamp free laser and LED hybrid light source of the Casio Projectors makes the user’s budget go a lot further and also provides the opportunity to improve their environmental credentials.”


Casio LampFree projectors are available at a highly competitive price point for the level of performance achieved.
