Casio has launched a laser-based, hybrid, bulbless projection system capable of more than 2,000 ANSI lumens, which it suggests is a 'world first'.
Casio lists the price of the lower power, 2,000 lumens projector at just under $800 (about £500). Other options will be available up to 3,000 lumens brightness, which should be adequate for most smaller lecture theatres and school halls.
