The future becomes brighter for Epson Ultra Short Throw Projectors

May 2014

Now with better specs, longer lamp life and finger touch-enabled interactivity

SYDNEY, 7 May 2014 – Epson today released eleven new and upgraded projectors in their Ultra Short Throw range targetted specifically at educational institutions, with the new flagship interactive model EB-595Wi becoming the world's first 3LCD, finger touch-enabled interactive projector offering teachers and students a far more engaging experience and intuitive operation than ever before.

The new projectors fall into two categories, interactive and non-interactive, with all boasting better brightness (up to 3300 lumens on selected models allowing the screen to be easily viewed from anywhere in the classroom without dimming lights), increased contrast ratio (now 10,000:1) and longer lamp life (up to 10,000 hours in ECO mode) giving better cost efficiencies and savings.

All eleven projectors offer digital connectivity including two HDMI ports with one port supporting MHL (Mobile High Definition Link) for mirroring connectivity with Android™ mobile devices. The projectors also allow wireless projection when used with an optional LAN card (using peer to peer wireless and Epson’s EasyMP Network Projection software version 2.81 or later) and projector control using Multi-PC projection software with a Moderator function which enables up to 50 devices to connect to the projector and the managing and controlling of up to four images displayed on the screen. All projectors boast a 16W built-in speaker with enough audio power to fill most classrooms and advanced networking capabilities for when users need to monitor, control and present from a remote location. There is no driver installation required for PCs and all lamps are low cost Epson lamps that can be replaced for just $79.

The five interactive projectors take the range up a further notch with world-first finger touch-enabled interactivity on the EB-595Wi model and PC Interactivity with Epson’s latest and enhanced PC interactive software (Easy Interactive Tools version 3.0) giving an intuitive user interface and enhanced interactive features. The interactive models also offer dual pen interactivity enabling teacher and student to annotate at the same time, a new smaller pen that now comes with selectable function side button and a new on-screen projector control tool bar (which allows users to power OFF, switch sources, zoom in and out and turn the volume up and down). No need to look for the remote, you can control the projector directly from the screen!

All Epson ultra short throw projectors are based on superior 3-chip LCD technology giving vibrant realistic colours, high quality detail and solid reliability. Epson projectors also use 3LCD engines that have no colour wheel with a white segment which, in practical terms, means Epson projectors have up to 3x brighter colours than their leading competitive 1-chip DLP projectors.

The new range of ultra short throw projectors consist of the non-interactive EB-580, EB-580e, EB-575W, EB-575We, EB-585W and EB-585We models and the interactive EB-575Wi, EB-575Wie, EB-585Wi, EB-595Wi and EB-595Wie models.
