The Epson EMP-S4 multimedia projector: brighter and with AV mute shutter

Sydney,13 June 2006: Epson continues its market leading pricing strategy in the entry level projector category with the release of the fully featured Epson EMP-S4 at a ground breaking RRP of $1299.

With seven colour modes: presentation, theatre, sRGB, blackboard, sports, photo and game, and an SVGA (super video graphics array) 800x600 pixel native resolution, the EMP-S4 is perfect for any corporate, education or home user requirements.

To help make presentations and classroom lessons more professional, the EMP-S4 has a new AV mute sliding lens cover. By simply sliding the cover over the lens, the EMP-S4 automatically goes into AV mute mode slowing the fan to reduce noise and allowing the presenter to continue without the distraction of the projected image.

The EMP-S4 immediately resumes operation when the mute slide cover is opened.

With a brighter – 170W - compact Epson E-TORL lamp, the EMP-S4 delivers a brilliant and efficient light projection up to 1800 ANSI lumens. The patented E-TORL lamp eliminates light leakage and minimises diffraction by combining an ellipsoidal reflector with an aspherical lens and hemispherical mirror.

The E-TORL lamp allows a quick 4 second start up time and an instant [2 second] shutdown at the push of a single button, eliminating the long wait for cool down, an advantage that other types of projector technologies do not have.

Epson’s 3LCD technology in the EMP-S4 - and all Epson projectors - produces brighter and more natural images and a smoother and sharper playback, and as there is no colour break-up in the image viewing is easier on the eye.

The EMP-S4 has a variety of interfaces that will meet business, education and home needs, including USB, PC, 2 video, audio in and monitor out ports, so users can combine the EMP-S4 with laptops, office networks, DVD players, TV receivers, video and still cameras, and games consoles.

For added flexibility and viewer comfort the EMP-S4 has a +/-30 degrees keystone correction (+/- 20 degrees for video) and an image shift function so the projector can be placed in convenient locations.

With a wide 1.35x digital zoom, the EMP-S4 lets users get up close with the images on the screen by highlighting particular areas of a presentation slide or zooming in on photos.

Weighing just 2.6kg the EMP-S4 is ideal for taking to meetings or for viewing in various rooms around the office or home.

A low noise two speed 30dB fan (in low brightness mode), allows the EMP-S4 to project high quality images without intruding on the soundtrack or presenter.

The Epson EMP-S4 is $1299 RRP including GST and is available through Epson resellers and retailers.
