Epson has unveiled new Powerlite projectors as well as eight new laser displays for educators
Epson has expanded its laser lineup with the new PowerLite models, which come equipped with intelligent software, robust connectivity and flexible installation to project content virtually anywhere. Epson’s new solutions inspire creativity and make it easy to deliver impactful and informative displays across a range of environments, including retail, hospitality and education. From projecting timely messaging such as social distancing directions, to increasing efficiency with instant sale display abilities, to illuminating unique dining ambiances, the new models can enhance the way customers interact with brands and products.
“Engagement drives growth and experiences drive engagement. As environments continue to evolve and business owners look for new ways to stand out, it is important for them to optimize existing spaces and deliver clear, impactful and relevant content,” said Remi Del Mar, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “This new lineup provides innovative, experiential signage solutions that are affordable, reliable and easy-to-use to help empower users to engage with consumers in deeper and more meaningful ways.”
Boasting from 2,000 to 5,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness, the projector lineup leverages Epson’s 3LCD laser technology and up to Full HD 1080p resolution. Delivering up to 150 inches of bright, colorful, easy-to-read visuals, the projectors offer a low-cost per square inch of image. Featuring a range of ultra short-throw to standard-throw models, the new displays make it easy and affordable for practically anyone to unleash dynamic content and meet today’s signage needs.
The new PowerLite 250F, 750F and 800F are powered by a virtually maintenance-free 20,000-hour laser light source, along with 360-degree placement and a full stack of connectivity options including HDBaseT with optional 5GHz wireless5 and Miracast via Epson’s iProjectionTM app.6 Users can also connect two or more displays and leverage built-in edge blending to support classroom applications or illuminate an entire wall with one large image. Plus, the split screen feature allows users to connect multiple input sources for displaying different content. Also available in black – PowerLite 255F, 755F and 805F – the projectors aesthetically blend better in environments where color purity matters.
The PowerLite 250F, 255F, 750F, 755F, 800F and 805F include Epson’s new, free content management software with the accompanying Epson Creative Content Projection app that combines operational and design elements to help drive efficiency and creativity. The software allows easy access and an array of creative elements, enabling users to combine videos and photos, and use existing preset filters or upload new ones to deliver unique effects. With convenient playlist and schedule functions, users can display content at ideal times that will drive the most impact for a brand, product or space. Epson’s Creative Projection app offers impromptu iOS device messaging and selection with touchscreen capabilities for image adjustment and projection directly from the device.
Just under six pounds, the PowerLite W70 and PowerLite W75 mini laser projectors for signage are compact yet powerful with an impressive laser light source. With the ability to project dynamic, on-the-go content, the ultra-portable mini laser projectors are designed for classrooms, meeting spaces and signage projects. Projecting from nearly anywhere in the room, the models feature a sleek, modern design in both black and white to blend into a variety of décor styles. Plus, with Bluetooth® connectivity and built-in HDMI connections for streaming devices, sharing engaging content has never been easier.
Epson has also unveiled eight new laser display models for educators – the interactive BrightLink 735Fi and 725Wi and non-interactive PowerLite 725W, 720, L200SW, L200SX, L200W, and L200X. Educators are quickly adapting to new, untraditional forms of teaching and are looking for different ways to captivate and inspire students. Offering long-throw, short-throw, ultra short-throw and interactive models, the new displays support a variety of teaching environments. Equipped with a virtually maintenance-free laser light source,2 they deliver big, bright images, which is crucial while teaching more spread out classes in the new social distancing classrooms.
“While we still don’t know exactly what next year’s classrooms will look like, we do know that there is no way to replace a good teacher,” said Mark Hess, executive director for instruction, technology and assessment, Walled Lake Consolidated School District. “Bright, engaging content is more important than ever as our teachers help students learn, whether they are in the classroom or learning from home. Epson is continually innovating to meet the needs of educators and that is why we have chosen their display technology for our teachers.”
Epson’s new flexible laser display solutions are optimized for schools, helping boost student engagement, collaboration and creativity. A major advantage when compared to traditional flat panels is that educators get valuable whiteboard space back when the projector is turned off. Different from other classroom display technology, the BrightLink 735Fi offers ultra-wide 110-inch, 16:6 images supporting split screen and side-by-side viewing from multiple sources. Educators can present multiple streams and whiteboard displays simultaneously for enhanced content sharing and collaboration.
“Always keeping teachers and students in mind, we continue to deliver high-quality solutions that allow teachers to connect with and inspire their students,” said Tom Piche, product manager, projectors, Epson America Inc. “In today’s classrooms, it’s important for teachers to have these large and reliable displays to accommodate more spread out, social distanced classes.”
Epson’s latest offerings also include non-interactive PowerLite models to pair with pre-installed interactive whiteboards for classrooms in need of short-throw solutions. Additional features on the new BrightLink and PowerLite models include:
- Flexible image sizes – The BrightLink 735Fi projects Full HD content, ultra-wide 110-inch, 16:6 images or 100-inch, 16:9 images, offering up to 77 percent more viewing area than 75-inch flat panels
