Everyone knows you shouldn’t turn a regular projector on its side. Doing so disrupts the lamp’s cooling system, drastically reducing the life of your light source, and in some cases, ruining your projector.
In fact, a wide XGA resolution Casio Green Slim projector, rotated on its side, doubles as a long-lasting and very affordable digital signage display.
Take the Casio XJM250. At a little more than $1,000, this projector is capable of producing a 300-inch diagonal image, perfect for a large-scale vertical digital signage display. Try finding a traditional digital signage display that can produce an image that big for that cheap! A 60-inch LCD display can easily cost six to seven times that much.
Of course, you’ll want a projector that’s bright enough to overpower the ambient light surrounding your digital signage display. The 3,000-lumen Casio XJM250 should do the trick, but call a Projector Expert at 1-888-248-0675 if you have any questions about your setup.

When Casio debuted their Green Slim projector line last year, we were blown away. The Casio Green Slims were the first projectors to do away with standard projector lamps in favor of a hybrid light source that combined laser and LED technology.
Just recently, Casio released the latest addition to the Green Slim projector line, the XJM series.
These new Casio projectors also employ the hybrid light source, but unlike their predecessors, these projectors are 3D-ready and come with MobiShow, allowing you to stream content from your Smartphone. They are also brighter than previous models, reaching an impressive 3,000 lumens.
Intrigued by the new crop of interactive projectors hitting the market but not ready for a projector upgrade? There’s a app mount for that.
Chief’s revolutionary new Interactive Projector Wall Mount will transform your current short throw projector into an interactive, collaborative communication machine. No special board required.
This is a pretty significant step in the evolution of interactivity. First, we had special projectors that worked only with specific whiteboards. Then we saw interactive projectors that didn’t require a board. Now, Chief enters the arena with a mount that features Luidia’s eBeam interactive technology.
Luidia is an established player in the interactive game. Their interactive whiteboards are used in more than a half million classrooms and conference rooms around the globe. Now they’re using the same technology in an interactive mount that works with your computer and projector to transform any surface into an interactive whiteboard.
Chief’s new Interactive Projector Mount also allows you to make notes and interact with your presentation and share it over the internet. The mount works with Windows and Mac operating systems and integrates seamlessly with existing applications.
