Series of 8 New Epson Projectors Offer Longer Lamp Life

Epson is rolling out a series of eight new projectors designed for K-12 schools that the company says will be more affordable to educators and offer extended lamp life.

The new PowerLite projector models will have up to 10,000 hours of lamp life when they enter the market in March. Through Epson's Brighter Futures program, schools can purchase replacement lamps for $79, further reducing the total cost of ownership.

All but one of the new models offers teachers the ability to wirelessly connect up to 50 devices and share students' work from as many as four device screens simultaneously. Five of the eight models offer expanded connectivity with two HDMI ports that connect with smartphones, tablets and other portable devices. The five models also have built-in 16-watt speaker and microphone input.

The eight PowerLite projectors range in brightness from 2,700 to 3,500 lumens and in price from $399 to $899.

"For schools looking for bright budget-friendly projectors, advanced connectivity and flexible installation features, the new PowerLite projectors offer options that allow educators to deliver vivid lessons in any environment," said Jason Meyer, senior product manager for Epson America.

Other features shared by all eight new PowerLite projector models:

  • Split screen, which allows input from up to two separate sources to be displayed side by side simultaneously;
  • Advanced network control, offering wireless connectivity for remote projector management and presentations over the network;
  • iProjection, which means teachers can present material from iOS Apple and Android devices;
  • QR code connections, which simplify access to content from smartphones and tablets;
  • 3LCD technology that delivers higher-quality color using less energy per lumen of brightness; and
  • Epson's Brighter Futures program, which offers sales and support to schools that includes counseling on picking the most appropriate products, special pricing, special limited warranties and toll-free technical support with dedicated education specialists.
