Dubai, UAE; October 6, 2019: Epson is showcasing its unique solutions for businesses, education, professional display, hospitality and retail. A stand-out feature of this year’s Epson stand (G20, Hall 4) is a 180-degree shared virtual reality (VR) projection space, housed inside a custom created structure, providing an immersive projection experience. Three Epson EB-L1755U laser installation projectors with ELPLX02 ultra-short throw lenses are used to display the VR content. The projection space acts like a giant VR headset and provides visitors with a breathtaking shared VR experience.
Jeroen van Beem, director of sales, Epson MEA, says: “As a company that has led many technology innovations, from the world's first analogue quartz watch to the first miniature digital printer, Epson is proud to join this five-day event. GITEX Technology Week is where the region’s technology leaders, IT enthusiasts and global innovators come together to discuss advancements and future trends in technology. We have lined up a series of demonstrations and interesting activations to give visitors a glimpse into the possibilities of virtual reality, projection mapping, augmented reality; and experience our wide range of products for different industry sectors. We have a customised structure for shared VR experience, built with the support of our partner Igloo Vision, to give visitors an immersive unique VR experience. GITEX is also an opportunity for us to educate visitors on the benefits of our inkjet printing technology versus laser printers.”
In the education zone of Epson’s stand, visitors can see with the Epson SCARAT3-401S robot in action, used in a wide range of industries, from assembling automotive components, to creating medical equipment and packaging medications.
