Epson has launched a new range of short-throw projectors at Bett, for use in classrooms and small meeting rooms, available from February. Products from the new range include EB-520, EB-525W, EB-530 and EB-535W and use 3LCD technology.
The range has a high contrast ratio for clearer image detail and high brightness, meaning the screen can be clearly seen in brightly lit classrooms and meeting rooms. A new short throw lens gives the projectors sharper images and improved focus.
Chris Goff, business manager for Epson UK, commented: “These high-quality projectors offer schools and businesses a versatile solution, which can be installed in individual classrooms or shared between several rooms or campuses. They are also an ideal replacement for older projectors.”
The range includes a lamp designed to last 66% longer than previous equivalent models, giving the projectors a low total cost of ownership. They can be positioned off-centre thanks to both horizontal and vertical keystone correction, freeing up workspace in classrooms and meeting rooms. The projectors’ short-throw ratio also allows them to be placed closer to the wall, meaning less disruption from shadows and a reduction in glare.
Once the projector has been configured, the On Screen Display settings can be copied from one projector to others via USB dongle, USB cable or network.
Comprehensive connectivity, including HDMI, integrates the projectors with digital devices and legacy analogue products meaning older hardware doesn’t necessarily need to be replaced.
