Epson showcases education innovations at BETT 2014

17 December 2013Epson, the world leader in the projector market for over 10 years¹, will be launching its latest 3LCD Ultra-short-throw interactive projection system for the education sector at BETT 2014.  Also on display will be a wide range of the company’s printing products and services.  Staff will be on hand to offer practical demonstrations of Epson’s products in use, highlighting the breadth and versatility of the company’s technological capability and experience of the education market.    

Epson will also be demonstrating the benefits of its 3LCD technology over DLP with a competitive shoot-out of its projectors.  This will show that Epson’s products deliver brighter colours than 1-chip DLP projectors with the same lumens.  Equal White and Colour Light Output (CLO) levels ensure bright and vibrant colours – essential for today’s digital content in learning environments.

Products on display will include:

WorkForce Pro WP-4000 Series

At BETT there will be a number of demonstrations of Epson’s award winning single-function printers and the WorkForce Pro WP-4500 Series of multi-function printers.  With a 50% lower cost per page and up to 80% lower power consumption than laser counterparts, they are a cost efficient and energy saving addition to any classroom.  These high-speed inkjet printers offer a genuine alternative to laser products and provide further cost savings due to a super-fast automatic double-sided printing function, reducing paper usage. This makes them an ideal choice for any school who will benefit from lower ink costs and a choice of high-yield cartridges of up to 3,400 pages, while a print resolution of 4800x1200dpi - much higher than comparative lasers for clearer text and sharper images.

EB-G6000 Series

The EB-G6000 range of versatile installation projectors are designed to deliver superior quality presentations in  auditoriums, lecture theatres and other education venues.

A wide range of ‘standard’ and ‘pro’ models provide XGA, WXGA and WUXGA resolution at 4,500-7,000 lumens in a chassis weighing less than 10kg. All are packed with innovative features, including the ability to project onto corners and curves and onto the ceiling, floor or wall.

The inclusion of 360-degree rotation, horizontal and vertical lens shift, pixel alignment, colour uniformity and HDBaseT (‘pro’ models only) gives system integrators installation flexibility and advanced image control. All models in the range are compatible with Epson’s EB-G5000 interchangeable lenses and are sufficiently light for installation by a single technician.

EB-1400Wi Series

The EB-1410Wi and EB-1400Wi combine the benefits of projectors, interactive whiteboards, flipcharts and other presentation equipment in one easy-to-use device. Delivering a 100-inch interactive projected image, and providing a wide variety of input sources, these models help businesses increase productivity and cut installation costs, by eliminating the need for multiple pieces of meeting room equipment.

The advanced features of these models allow users to turn any surface into a 100-inch interactive screen and annotate on any projected image from a variety of input sources: computers, office networks, USB memory sticks2, visualisers and many other smart devices. With the interactive pens provided, users can fully interact with computer software – in the same way they would with a mouse – and also annotate meeting notes. Once meetings have finished, notes can be saved and shared to office networks and USB memory sticks2, in addition to being sent to other users by email.

Graeme Davidson, business manager for visual imaging at Epson UK, says: “We are committed to developing a range of products to help schools and colleges excel at what they do best.  As the UK’s leading exhibition for the education sector, BETT provides Epson with the ideal venue for demonstrating its range of products and solutions for the education market.  Our cost effective products produce consistent quality results backed up by Epson expertise and support.”
