Epson PowerLite 715c

The Epson PowerLite 715c combines 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and PC-free presentation technology in an easily portable unit. Its 400:1 contrast ratio and true XGA native resolution combine with Epson's exclusive SizeWise resizing technology, which allows the projector to accept every major notebook resolution on the market. SizeWise allows for compatibility with resolutions from VGA up to UXGA, with virtually no loss of picture content. The HDTV-ready projector also supports popular digital video signals, such as 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. EasyMP technology enables users to run computerized presentations without a PC by transferring presentation files to a PC card that can be inserted in a slot located within the projector. Presenters can easily transfer, review, edit, or rearrange files via the projector. Pictures can be advanced automatically or with a mouse click, and notes and annotations can be created and saved directly onto a slide. The unit includes picture-in-picture technology, 15-degree digital keystone correction, electronic zoom, a multi-function remote control, and onscreen help features. The projector is compatible with PCMCIA Flash memory, and, with an optional adapter, it can work with cards such as Compact Flash, SmartMedia and MemoryStick.
