Epson launches new versatile short-throw projectors packed with easy-to-use features

Epson’s new short-throw projectors deliver superior-quality images and offer a range of clever features as standard to give users more value for their money. Ideal for classrooms or small meeting rooms, these projectors can be wall or ceiling mounted or placed on a table close to the wall to free-up more workspace.

This new range (EB-520, EB-525W, EB-530 and EB-535W) uses 3LCD technology to deliver exceptional image quality with accurate colours. The range has a high contrast ratio for clearer image detail and high brightness, meaning the screen can be clearly seen in brightly-lit classrooms and meeting rooms. A new short throw lens gives the projectors sharper images and improved focus.

Chris Goff, business manager for Epson UK, says: “These high-quality projectors offer schools and businesses a versatile solution, which can be installed in individual classrooms or shared between several rooms or campuses. They are also an ideal replacement for older projectors.”

Users can be sure that they will get more for their money as the range includes a lamp designed to last 66% longer than previous equivalent models, giving the projectors a low total cost of ownership (TCO). An A/V mute function also saves power by dimming the lamp by 70% and allows users to pause a presentation and redirect the audience’s attention away from the screen for breakout discussions.

The new projectors are also quick and easy to set-up. They can be positioned off-centre thanks to both horizontal and vertical keystone correction, freeing up valuable workspace in classrooms and meeting rooms. The projectors’ short-throw ratio also allows them to be placed closer to the wall, meaning less disruption from shadows and a reduction in glare.

Once the projector has been configured, the On Screen Display (OSD) settings can be copied from one projector to many others via USB dongle, USB cable or network so you don’t need to individually set up all additional projectors.

Comprehensive connectivity, including HDMI, integrates the projectors with the latest digital devices and legacy analogue products, meaning older hardware doesn’t necessarily need to be replaced.

The EB-520, EB-525W, EB-530 and EB-535W are available from February 2015, priced at £626, £680, £680 and £733 respectively.
