Epson Announces Availability of Classroom and Meeting Room Projectors

Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide,1 today announced availability of eight new projectors designed for K-12 classrooms and small to medium-sized conference rooms. The PowerLite® E20, X49, W49, 118, 119W, 982W, 992F, and 1288 range from budget-friendly, network-ready classroom projectors to wireless, portable meeting room solutions. The new lineup offers premium audio, enhanced connectivity, and widescreen options with most models for enriched presentations and increased engagement in today’s virtual sessions and more spread out classes and conference rooms. Combining high-quality visuals with flexible display capabilities, the projectors support versatile and captivating projection in a variety of environments without the commitment to one location, unlike permanent flat panel options.

“As educators look for new ways to enhance virtual lessons and companies explore how to provide better visibility in more spread out conference rooms, Epson focuses on designing accessible technologies that adapt to current display needs and help drive productivity and engagement,” said Veronika Knight, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “Compatible with a wide range of devices and widely-used software, the new models deliver big, bright, easy-to-read presentations and offer simple projection tools for easy integration into today’s corporate and education environments.”

Leveraging Epson’s 3LCD technology and up to 4,200 lumens of equal color and white brightness,2 the new models project up to 350 inches of dynamic content with split screen capabilities for side-by-side viewing. Designed with convenience and durability in mind, the projectors include advanced network connectivity options for remote management and multi-device integration and deliver up to 17,000 hours of lamp life3 for less maintenance.…Read More
