Epson has three new professional projectors, two for the overall ProAV market and one designed specifically for education.
The PowerLite 1810p and 1815p 3LCD projectors ($2,699 ESP and $2,999 ESP) are both specified at 3500 lumens and XGA 1024 x 768 resolution, 500:1 or 600:1 contrast ratio, and weigh 6.5 and 6.9 pounds. The 1815p model includes wireless a/b/g, USB Type A connectivity to any PC, as well as RJ-45 wired LAN connectivity for remote monitoring and control. For control via the IP network, Epson also added a new GUI interface that lets users remotely play and pause presentations as well as adjust images (i.e., e-zoom, keystone correction, volume, color mode, etc.). The new PC-free interfaces (also including USB port and Compact Flash) show files as thumbnails, including JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG, SIT, MPEG1, and MPEG2. So, network administrators can manage files on installed units from any location.
Epson touts east set-up, an A/V Mute Slide function for pausing during presentations, eight color modes, and two brightness levels, among the features of these two new projectors.
The new education-specific projector is the PowerLite 83c ($899 ESP). This is specified up to 2200 lumens with a seven-watt speaker, a built-in closed captioning decoder, and wired LAN connectivity. Other specifications include XGA resolution and up to 400:1 contrast ratio.
This new projector weighs 6.4 pounds, uses 3LCD technology, has a five-second on/off feature and seven color modes. It also has a sleep timer for prolonging lamp life. Nice specs for the price.
