Epson Philippines Corporation has just unveiled the World’s 1st 3LCD, finger touch-enabled interactive projector, along with six other projector models in the company’s Ultra Short Throw projector range.
Specifically designed to promote interactive learning in educational institutions, the Epson EB-500 Series interactive projectors allow users the following actions: touch the screen, scroll up and down, move icons and annotate, zoom in or out, open or close files, enlarge, reduce and rotate images, and erase images.
Delivering brightness of up to 3300 Lumens (on selected models), the new Epson projectors have a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and longer lamp life of up to 10,000 hours in ECO mode.
Epson’s latest projector series offers digital connectivity, including two HDMI ports, one of which supports Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) for mirroring connectivity with Android mobile devices. The new projectors also allow wireless projection when used with an optional LAN card and projector control via Multi-PC projection software with a Moderator function—enables up to 50 devices to connect to the projector and the simultaneous display of up to four images on the screen.
Furthermore, the new projectors are equipped with 16W built-in speakers, advanced networking capabilities, and the brand’s latest, intuitive PC interactive software—Easy Interactive Tools version 3.0.
Similar to a touchscreen device, the interactive projectors offer dual pen interaction. It comes with smaller pens that have the new side button with select functions, and a new on-screen projector control tool bar that allows users to power off, switch sources, zoom in and out, and turn the volume up and down. These projectors can also project vertically downward, which enables the conversion of a simple table top into a platform for interaction and collaboration.
All Epson ultra short throw projectors are based on superior 3-chip LCD technology, producing vibrant, realistic colors, high quality detail, and trusted reliability. Epson projectors also use 3LCD engines that are devised to produce up to 3x brighter colors than 1-chip DLP projectors.
Epson’s new range of ultra short throw projectors consists of the non-interactive EB-570, EB-580, EB-575W, EB-585W, and the interactive EB-575Wi, EB-585Wi, and EB-595Wi.
