Epson Aims New Projector at K-12 Teachers


4/12/2007—Epson America has unveiled a compact multimedia projector designed specifically for educators. Targeted toward classroom environments, Epson's PowerLite 83c, ringing in at an estimated $899, delivers 2,200 lumens of brightness, a seven-watt speaker, built-in closed captioning, and LAN connectivity.

Epson designed the projector, which is available now, based on input from its education customers. The result:

  • Its closed-captioning decoder provides schools with a low-cost way to meet ADA508 requirements.
  • The LAN connectivity lets school IT administrators monitor the device wherever it is located in the school. This also means the project can be remotely controlled and powered down at night.
  • The projector is supported by Epson's Brighter Future sales and support program for educator, which includes special pricing, an extension of Epson's limited warranty to three years, dedicated account managers and toll-free support.
  • The projector's lamp uses Epson's E-TORL technology which delivers more lumens per watt and decreased power consumption to save energy costs.
  • The bulb also lasts longer: approximately 4,000 hours, compared with the previous PowerLite model's 3,000 hours.
  • It uses Epson's High Aperture 3LCD technology, to provide more naturally colored and sharper images and exact color reproduction.

The new model will be available this month for $899.
