Projector manufacturer Epson has announced the availability of six new laser projector displays, including two interactive BrightLink models and four non-interactive PowerLite ultra short-throw models.
The PowerLite 755F and 750F, designed to help business owners and educators transform spaces, are available now, while the BrightLink 735Fi, 725Wi and PowerLite 725W and 720 designed for videoconferencing and meeting rooms will be available starting Nov. 23, according to the company’s press release.
In a statement, Mark Roslon, director of product marketing at Epson, said the new projectors aim to solve the problems that teachers and business owners are facing as they adapt new technologies for education, collaboration and communication.
“As we move toward a post-pandemic future, larger, bolder displays are imperative in the classroom and meeting room to address the need for social distancing and create an engaging experience for in-person and remote participants,” Roslon said. “Epson’s laser projectors represent the latest in display technology and produce large, bright visuals at more affordable costs compared to flat panels. They also offer a lot of flexibility in installation while delivering informative and engaging displays that are not bound by a physical frame.”
According to Epson, the BrightLink 725Wi offers 100-inches of interactive space with 16:10 images, and the BrightLink 735Fi offers ultra-wide 110-inch, 16:6 images.
BrightLink models include built-in wireless connectivity, automatic image alignment and pen calibration for easy installation as well as split-screen and side-by-side viewing from multiple sources. This allows educators to present multiple streams and whiteboard displays for enhanced content sharing.
The new BrightLink projectors also support wireless interactivity via Micracast and wireless displays using Epson iProjection software to connect laptops to individual student devices, helping to limit touching the board.
Meanwhile, the PowerLite 725 and 720 ultra short-throw laser displays go well with pre-installed interactive whiteboards or in classrooms where interactivity is not needed. They’re designed to deliver high-quality images with convenient wireless connectivity, instant on activation and a 20,000-hour laser light source with no lamps.
The PowerLite 755F and 750F can be used for digital signage by combining the projection features, connectivity and user-friendly software.
“Encouraging creativity, the new projectors allow users to easily shift content from impromptu social distance messaging to customized product details that inform customers of available inventory, promotions and more, all while reducing physical interaction,” the company’s press release said.
The PowerLite models can be used in small spaces and offer 360-degree placement and a full stack of connectivity options with 5GHz wireless. Users can also wirelessly display and change content using Miracast via Epson’s iPropjection app.
They also come with Epson’s free content management software and the Epson Creative Content Projection app.
