As the leading digital imaging company celebrates another milestone with the achievement of world numberone in projectors for 16 consecutive years, Epson unveiled a series of feature-packed projectors for businesses and schools at affordable price points.
At the Projection Conference & Showcase, “Together, We Bring Imagination to Life”, held at the Shangri-La at the Fort, Epson Philippines Visual Imaging Product Manager Lyn Lizarondo pointed out how projector usage has expanded over the years, with Epson delivering innovations adapted to the fast-changing needs of multiple segments.
“This showcase highlights how Epson led innovations in visual imaging technologies even beyond the boardroom. In the past few years, we have seen how projectors have become indispensable in the home, schools, and even in big venues and the outdoors. Even as Epson took big steps in various sectors, we have continued to improve on the usage of projectors for businesses and in classrooms, by adding on features that are not available in the market at these price points.”
The new Epson projectors are equipped with an impressive 3,3000to 3,600 lumens, delivering both white and colour brightness in the same high levels. This feature is important to ensure better visibility even in bright environment, like in offices or in classrooms.
Resolutions range from SVGA, XGA, WXGA, WUXGA and wide ranging connectivity- HDMI/VGA/LAN that provides convenient and hassle-free projections. EB-U42 even comes additional with 2 HDMI ports, with one of it MHL-enabled – ideal for greater digital compatibility.
Wireless transmission enables the users to enjoy enhanced connectivity and flexibility with either EB-U42’s built-in wireless module or Epson’s ELPAP10 wireless LAN adaptor. This enables end-users to easily share and transmit images, texts and files from smart devices like mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
Split screen features allow two separate image sources to be projected on a single screen, eliminating the need for a second projector. This is useful during video conferences allowing presentation images and remote participants to be shown together simultaneously.
Multi-PC projection moderator function allows connecting to up to 50 devices- PC, smartphones or others— and simultaneously project onto the screen up to four (4) images. This is a significant advantage to help make meetings or classroom presentations easy and efficient.
Screen mirroring allows users to wirelessly mirror their android smart devices to the projector without the need of cables or installing any application.
Auto Power On- projection starts automatically when a signal is received from a computer or smart device even if the projector is on standby. It saves the need to turn on the power button or use the remote control.
Epson has pioneered in raising awareness on Color Brightness (Color Light Output) as an important requirement for life-like colors. Utilizing its own proprietary 3LCD technology, all Epson projectors deliver equal levels of White Light Output and Color Light Output—an important detail that significantly raises the quality of projected images.
Since 2015, Epson’s visual imaging development has remained focused on multi-sectoral usage and innovating in anticipation of evolving functions of projectors as an ubiquitous digital imaging device for business, education or lifestyle requirements.
““Epson’s R&D on its products and supporting services are made even better by constantly enhancing every detail to come up with this level of performance and reliability. Being number one globally for 16 years, and in the Philippines for the past few years has inspired the company to further harness its own technologies into expanding to more possibilities for visual imaging products, explains Eduardo Bonoan, General Manager and Head of Marketing, Epson Philippines. “The R&D for all Epson products are aligned with the Epson 25 Vision of “creating a new connected age of people, things and information with efficient, compact and precision technologies’, and with the enhancement of every detail, we are surely coming closer and closer to making it happen for our customers,” concludes Bonoan.
