The XJ-UT311WN has an ultra short throw ratio of 0.28:1 meaning it can produce up to an 80″ image from just 1.5 feet away, eliminating shadows on the screen and the health and safety worry of looking into the lens. Not only does it sit so close, but it is 3100 lumens so there is no loss of clarity even in the brightest lit rooms. Whilst it isn’t Full HD, the WXGA resolution still displays a good level of detail for images and power point presentations and videos.
The Casio XJ-UT311WN is designed for the modern classroom with it being lamp free, it will sit right up next to the board and has wireless features allowing you to send pictures onto the screen using your mobile device. Having a hybrid projection system this projector incorporates the dust free sealed optics of DLP, the ultra long lamp life of LED and the crisp image quality of Laser in one big bundle, and although the price tag certainly reflects that the long lamp life means that the total cost of ownership certainly competes with the cheaper models
The concept of being able to take a picture on your mobile phone and wirelessly send it to the XJ-UT311WN is very convenient, but note that this is a new feature in it’s early stages. It would work well with basic photos and small presentations but not larger files such as videos. Your IT department will also be delighted with this projector because through the RJ45 and RS232 inputs you can set up email alerts and control when to turn the projectors on and off remotely. This can prolong lamp life by turning it off when it is not vein used.
