Siew Jin Kiat, General Manager, Visual Instruments Division, Epson Southeast Asia, said: “For the first time, businesses can enjoy the high colour and white brightness performance of Epson projectors at competitive prices. In particular, our first entry-level WUXGA projectors, such as the EB-U04, allow us to deliver beyond Full HD images to customers who are looking for a value-for-money projector to deliver more impactful presentations.”
Supporting a WUXGA resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels that goes beyond Full HD, the EB-U04 promise better images, distortion-free video, plus enhanced colour and white brightness of over 3,000 lumens.
According to Epson, all Epson projectors are powered by Epson’s proprietary 3LCD technology that produces vibrant colour projections and smooth projections of movies without colour breakup. They also deliver up to three times higher colour brightness and up to three times wider colour gamut than one-chip projectors. Unlike other one-chip projectors, Epson projectors are not susceptible to the “rainbow effect” – a limitation of the one-chip technology that occurs while projecting darker moving images, the company added.
Epson business projectors have been built with seamless connectivity in mind. The EB-U04 comes with multiple connectivity options, such as VGA and LAN. It also includes two HDMI ports, one of which supports MHL (Mobile High Definition Link) that can be used to hook up a compatible smart device to mirror HD content on the big screen. Once connected, the device can be operated and charged using the projector’s remote control.
Setting up presentations is easier with Epson’s iProjection app, which lets users connect their smart devices to an Epson projector by scanning a QR code on the projected screen. The iProjection app also enables users to easily share and transmit images, text and files from smart devices.
The projector features automatic vertical keystone detection and adjustment. An in-built physical horizontal keystone adjuster can be used to correct keystone distortions caused when the projector is placed at an angle to the projection surface.
The new projectors also feature a new home screen that displays source information, and puts frequently used functions at your fingertips. They are also capable of detecting input sources automatically, making it easy for executives to kick off their presentations right after a content source is connected.
In line with Epson’s commitment to environmental conservation, the new projectors now come with projection lamps that last for 10,000 hours in eco-mode and filter maintance cycle increases to 10,000 hours. The longer lifespan of the lamps not only reduces electronic waste, it also brings cost savings for businesses while minimising the need to maintain a projector’s air filter. This is equivalent to using the projector for 3.5 years with usage of eight hours per day for 365 days per year.
Epson has also made the lamp much easier to replace. Traditionally, a projector would have to be removed from its ceiling mount for lamp replacement. With the new projector, the lamp is easily accessible, with the cover on the upper side of the projector.
