Epson Demonstrates new MeetingMate Interactive Finger Touch Projectors, new Z Series Projectors and new 1900 Series Projectors at Integrate 2014

August 2014

Also seamless edge blending, floor projection, projection mapping and more on stand E30

SYDNEY, 21 August 2014 – Epson will be showing their new range of MeetingMate interactive, finger touch projectors, new Z series large venue installations projectors and new compact HD WUXGA 1900 Series projectors as part of demonstrations in projection mapping, portrait projection, edge blending, floor projection and Full HD content projection at the Integrate 2014 Expo on stand E30 from 26-28 August at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

Highlighting Epson’s interactive, finger touch projectors will be the launch of the company’s new MeetingMate range consisting of the second-generation EB-1420Wi and EB-1430Wi models - three of which will be networked together - that completely remove the need for - a PC and complicated software. The new MeetingMate models not only capitalise on the incredible success of the first generation projectors in the education and the commercial sectors, but add to it in many ways with the EB-1430Wi becoming the world’s first finger touch-based interactive projector aimed squarely at the world of business. Such is the ingenuity of the EB-1430Wi that it enables as many as six participants to touch, draw, select and interact using intuitive and familiar gestures. In addition to operation using an interactive pen, with the EB-1430Wi it is now possible for users to operate by simply using their fingers on the screen. Much like many of today’s smartphones and tablet devices (many of which can be used with MeetingMate) opening and closing files, scrolling, moving and expanding objects, and annotation are just some of the possibilities available at the touch of a finger. What’s more any image on the screen can be resized and moved as if it were an object. So, even if there is no writing space on the screen, written contents can be reduced in size to make room for new annotations.

Also at Integrate and in a first for Epson in Australia the company will be using its EB-G6900WUNL projector in a unique projection mapping demonstration where a solid object in a corner of the stand will have different patterns and designs running through it and onto the surrounding walls. This type of projection mapping won great acclaim at the recent Vivid Festival in Sydney. Epson G Series large-venue projectors offer uncompromising image quality and professional-grade reliability whether presenting in a conference room, auditorium, stage or house of worship. The G Series also offer 3LCD, 3-Chip technology for both high colour brightness and high white brightness in addition to seamless edge blending, digital connections for digital quality and distance flexibility and HDBaseT in order to easily transmit Full HD video and audio, Ethernet and serial communication through a single CAT 5e/6 cable. The G Series also boasts 360° installation on any plane, from horizontal to vertical and everything in between, arc and point correction to fine tune image geometry, passive 3D for stacked 3D applications using polarised passive glasses and six optional lenses (standard, short, wide, rear, middle and long throw) with lens shift for complete flexibility and easy exchange.

There will also be two EB-G6900WUNL projectors showing additional edge blending features and capabilities in a separate demonstration that will fill a large wall with an extended desktop running several applications including simultaneous video and static documents.

Finding a projector that will successfully handle portrait projection can be a challenging task. At Integrate 2014 the new Epson EB-Z9870UNL not only handles this task but will project a very large image onto an entire wall whilst comfortably sitting at a 90-degree angle, highlighting its application in the worlds of digital signage, fashion shows, art galleries and museums. Utilising Epson’s 3LCD, 3-Chip technology, the EB-Z9870UNL’s widescreen performance is unrivalled. Alongside its native WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution that supports Full HD for high quality presentations the projector’s 8,700 lumens also presents dazzling brightness.

Also launched at Integrate will be the new 1900 series of high image quality, mid-range projectors consisting of models EB-1985WU, EB-1980WU, EB-1975W and EB-1970W. The new 1900 series boasts a stunning array of new features and functions that include high image quality with WUXGA resolution, rich connectivity and functionality and easy installation and maintenance. The 1900 series is ideal for corporate and classroom environments where large flat panel displays (FPD) with high brightness and resolution are required. At Integrate the EB-1985WU will project and display complex content on a large scale in Full HD without distortion. The EB-1985WU also features Screen Mirroring with Wi-Fi certified Miracast technology and Intel® WiDi, Epson iProjection and Network Projection. Wi-Fi Certified Miracast is a particularly useful Wi-Fi application which allows easy wireless transmission of Full HD (1080p) video and sound from 1900 series projectors without any complicated set up and can send images in Screen Mirroring mode without any cable connections.

Also demonstrating Epson’s edge blending whilst playing video will be two EB-Z10000UNL installation multimedia projectors. These unique projectors offer three times brighter colours, and reliable performance thanks to their 3LCD, 3-Chip technology. They also offer excellent widescreen performance, native WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution and support for Full HD for presentations. With 10,000 lumens the EB-Z10000UNL delivers captivating images in virtually any venue and their versatile connectivity supports the latest connectivity options, including HDBaseT™, HDMI™, DVI and 3G-SDI. The EB-Z10000UNL also enjoys advanced image processing with a cinema filter, Farojia DCDi Chip, super resolution, and frame interpolation.

Completing the stand at Integrate is another installation projector, the Epson EB-Z10005NL demonstrating a floor based projection display. The EB-Z10005NL suits the needs of the demanding rental market and is designed for use in environments such as auditoriums, large live music venues or for companies holding conferences who need to hire in specialist equipment. The EB-Z10005NL’s 10,000 lumens delivers clear and vivid images at XGA resolution and Epson’s 3LCD technology ensures high-quality images with its equally high White and Colour Light Output for vivid, natural colours and deep blacks, even in daylight. The EB-Z10005NL’s flexible installation angle caters for both front and rear projection systems and with a wide lens shift range, both vertically and horizontally, makes for easy integration into any environment.
