Casio XJ-A147
XGA Hybrid Presentation Projector

Marc Davidson, November 25, 2014

Setup

Good connectivity. The back panel offers only a limited set of connectors:

  • 1 HDMI
  • 1 VGA IN (for RGB or component)
  • 1 USB A (for the included Wi-Fi Dongle or for reading files from a USB key)
  • 1 Micro USB B (for Direct USB Display and for uploading a logo)
  • 1 Mini Plug AV port (for the supplied adaptor for composite video and stereo input; settable for stereo output.)

At 5.1 pounds and 1.6" by 11.7" by 8.3" (HWD), the XJ-A147 is small and light enough to carry easily, particularly with the soft carrying case Casio ships with it.

For most of my tests, I used a 98" diagonal image, with the lens at its full wide angle setting and the projector 108" from the screen. The lens is actually inside the projector behind a small window, with buttons both on the remote and the control panel on the projector for adjusting the motorized focus and 2x zoom.

With the XJ-A147 sitting on a flat surface, the lens offset puts the bottom of the image at the midline of the lens. If you need to adjust the image position, you can use the drop-down foot in front to move it up or the two screw-on feet at the back corners to move it down or adjust roll. You can then square off the image if you like with the vertical keystone control, although this can introduce artifacts, as with any digital keystone correction.
