New projectors are mercury-free, lightweight

Casio America, Inc. today announced that it is releasing a line of green slim projectors with a mercury-free laser & LED hybrid light source.

Use of the laser & LED hybrid light source makes the green slim projectors bright enough (2,000-3,000 lumens) for projection in a well lit room without using a high-pressure mercury lamp. The body is about the size of a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, 1.7 inches thick and weighs 5 lbs. The light source has a life of approximately 20,000 hours, projection at maximum brightness is possible in a minimum of eight seconds and no cool down is needed when turning the projectors off.
