Epson announces new 2,000-lumen WXGA accent lighting projector for retail, galleries and museums
The LightScene EV-100’s low visual noise design blends in beautifully to displays and exhibitions, offering easy installation and operation
6 February 2018– Epson has announced the LightScene EV-100 Series, a new type of projector that expands the company’s presence in the signage and lighting sector. With a sleek, low-noise design, available in black or white and created to blend into the background, the 2,000-lumen WXGA EV-100 can work as either a projector or a spotlight without distracting viewers from the subject.
The LightScene EV-100’s unobtrusive design is ideal for curated visual environments such as retail showrooms, shop window displays, museum exhibits and art installations, where minimal visual clutter is key. It can be used to provide information, show video or moving patterns, and even projection map imagery onto small objects.
Leon Mclean, product manager, Epson Europe, says, “The LightScene EV-100 is a first move into a completely new type of projector for Epson, and a great addition to our range of laser signage solutions. I’m very pleased with a design that manages to be stylish and visually unobtrusive, without compromising performance, versatility or reliability.”
Epson’s flexible laser technology gives the EV-100 a huge variety of mounting options – it can project from any angle, and can be ceiling-mounted, floor-standing or attached to a lighting track¹, all without requiring specialist installation or set-up. It is also capable of projecting in portrait, and multiple units are capable of edge blending for larger displays.
The LightScene EV-100 is supplied with Epson Projector Content Manager Software, which allows single or multiple playlists to be easily loaded via SD Card and changed using remote control by employees, with no need for a computer. The software also allows you to add overlay effects including colour and shape filters to permit tinted and irregularly-shaped images, as well as creating and editing playlists, timetables and custom filters.
As with all Epson laser projectors, the EV-100 offers tested fit and forget reliability, with a sealed filterless structure to boost dust resistance, and a 20,000-hour, five-year warranty.
The LightScene EV-100 is available from June 2018.
