Casio Education Grant Winners Practice What They Teach

Environmental awareness is just part of the many benefits of choosing to go LampFree. 2/18/2016 8:10:00 AM

Go Mercury Free and be safe.



The use of a LampFree helps Casio Education Grant Winners instill the values and practices of environmental awareness in their students, not only through what they teach them in class, but in how they keep the environment of their schools – and the world – free of mercury and other potential hazards. 


• Using a LampFree perfectly complements the “reduce…reuse…recycle” philosophy that drives the Environmental Science curriculum taught by Michael Dean, Department Head, of Little Axe High School.

• It serves as a model of behavior for the AP Environmental students and members of the Science Club at Lavaca High School.

• It aligns well with the goals of the auto program, to reduce waste of materials and  minimize hazardous waste, at Freedom High School.  


THESE SCHOOLS WON A LampFree UT310 Ultra Short Throw 

Designed for use in most classrooms, it incorporates LampFree criteria, MercuryFree and StressFree and provides WXGA resolution and 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness. 


They will learn how LampFree saves real costs in use when compared to a mercury lamp-based projector: 

            • the cost of projection lamps and dispose hazard materials (contains Mercury)

            • the maintenance and service related to the lamps, filter and 

            • the cost of electricity required to power the lamps. 

These costs add up and make other units an enormous financial burden over time. But with LampFree , these extra costs in use are virtually eliminated. The total lifetime cost can be almost half. 

In addition, Casio includes a five-year or 10,000 hour warranty on the light source for education customers, and there’s no required maintenance. 


Consider how a LampFree resolves the typical issues of other projectors and it clearly becomes the winning choice: 




Downtime due to clogged filters or dim lamps.

LampFree has no filter and no lamp meant no disposal fees require Mercury contains Lamp too.

Deterioration of the image quality.

The LampFree now in use is brighter than the lamp based ones the district purchased originally. The color gamut and quality is significantly better than the lamp-based units over time.

1-2 minutes warm up, resulting in leaving them on all day.

LampFree reaches full brightness in less than 8 seconds. Instant Off saves power,

no need to leave on all day.

Power Consumption

Up to 50% power savings.
