Epson launched its new affordable range of high-quality education projectors in Middle East. The new range consists of its short-throw projector range EB-435W, EB-425W, EB-430 and EB-420 targeted at schools looking for high-quality yet affordable equipments. The projectors can be mounted 72cm from the screen for a high-quality, 178cm picture with fewer shadows, making them the perfect partners for existing interactive whiteboards in schools.
The short-throw range, powered by 3LCD technology, achieves accurate colour reproduction, important in education for natural-looking flags, maps and diagrams. A high White and Colour Light Output of up to 3,000 lumens assures a clear picture, even in daylight, while a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 delivers sharp detail.
Teachers can also captivate the class by showing 3D objects close-up with the optional Epson ELP-DC06 USB document camera, or create engaging interactive presentations by connecting the optional Epson ELP-IU03 interactive module. Offering an alternative to interactive whiteboards, the module works with the projector to make any surface interactive, and comes with a digital pen for creating and saving notes.
Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said: “Epson’s latest range of projectors achieves the perfect balance between high-quality performance and affordability. We believe these shot-throw projectors will particularly appeal to educational institutions in the Middle East given the low total cost of ownership, superior picture quality and a host of smart features for the classroom, such as a microphone input and a built-in 16W speaker.”
Simple to set up and use, the short-throw range has 3-in-1 USB display, which means that only one cable is needed for visuals, audio and mouse control. The projectors can be conveniently controlled from a wall-mounted box at the front of the classroom when connected to Epson’s optional ELPCB01 Control and Connection Box.
Schools can make significant savings thanks to the short-throw range’s low total cost of ownership. The Epson E-TORL lamp produces more light using less energy, and lasts 6,000 hours in eco mode. The filter also has a long life of 5,000 hours for years of trouble-free operation. Further reducing costs and maintenance time, the projectors can be connected to a network to enable remote control and monitoring of lamp life, temperature and more.
