Epson Debuts 9 New Classroom Projectors
Epson has launched nine new projectors in its PowerLite series designed specifically for use in K-12 classrooms.
The new projectors, the S39, X39, W39, 107, 108, 109W, 970, 980W, and 990U, range in brightness from 3,300 lumens to 4,000 and resolutions of 800 X 600 to 1,920 X 1,200 and feature wireless technology designed to allow up to 50 devices to connect simultaneously.
The projectors use the company's 3LCD technology to provide greater color brightness and feature long-life lamps that can last up to 12,000 hours on Eco mode. Using the company's iProjection app, teachers can also display up to four screens simultaneously. Each of the new projectors except one also offers two-way sharing, so instructors can push content from the projector to connected devices and allowing students to share their work with the larger screen.
"Educators understand the importance of having the best display technology in the classroom to deliver dynamic, engaging lessons to students," said Veronika Knight, product manager of projectors at Epson America, in a prepared statement. "Our newest series of PowerLite projectors provide affordable, reliable, flexible display technology with amazing image quality and the ability to wirelessly connect multiple devices and display multiple screens simultaneously. Their two-way content sharing ability and vivid, bright color display — even in well-lit classrooms — make them a perfect technology to support collaborative learning."
Price tags on the projectors range from $399 for the S39 to $1,079 for the 990U.
