Signature XJ-M256 Used for Onboard Training, Video Conferencing and Entertainment

 

DOVER, NJ, May 28, 2015 Casio America, Inc., a leading industry manufacturer of LampFree® projectors, is proud to announce that its Signature XJ-M256 LampFree® projector has been sent to the International Space Station. It will be operated by crew members for onboard training activities including spacewalking and complex robotics, among others. The projector will also be used for crew video conferences with support staff on the ground and for entertainment purposes such as watching TV or movies during their off-duty hours. This is the first time a projector has ever been used on the International Space Station in this capacity.

 

“Casio is excited our LampFree® projector has been selected as the first Data Projector in space and made the long journey to the International Space Station,” said Joe Gillio, Senior Director Product Marketing, Casio’s Business Projector Division. “Crew members typically watched video on small laptop screens and were in need of a projector capable of displaying video in a large-scale format. We are confident our Signature XJ-M256 projector will exceed expectations in quality, reliability and performance.”

 

The Signature XJ-M256 is powered by Casio’s 5th generation LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology. This LampFree® light source combines a laser, fluorescent element and LEDs to generate high brightness and a 20,000 hour estimated lifespan with minimal brightness degradation and continuous operation for a low total cost of operation. The LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source technology provides a greater increase in color spectrum when compared to a mercury lamp.
