As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into 2021, returning to normal offices seems less likely in the short term. For those who want to be big and brilliant in their home office, Epson has launched three new business projectors.
“As shelter orders in place continue, demand for projectors continues to increase as people want to improve their home technology to meet their workflow needs,” said Rodrigo Catalan of Epson America. “Our new EX range helps today’s hard-working and hard-working professionals, including the impressive Pro EX10000 wireless laser projector, which directly meets the needs of productivity and casual entertainment in today’s climate.”
Described as the company’s most advanced business projector to date, the EX10000 Pro wireless laser projector can serve the needs of workers at home or in the office. It features 3LCD 3-chip projection technology to display 100 percent of the RGB color signal in each frame, with Epson saying that its laser light source should offer maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours.
The Full HD projector can produce up to 300 inches diagonally at 100,000 dynamic contrast: 1 and 4,500 lumens of white color and brightness, and utilizes a 1.6x optical zoom and automatic keystone correction.
Internal wireless connectivity serves video conferencing, workers can reflect smartphone content thanks to Miracast support and streaming devices such as Roku and Chromecast can be plugged into two unit HDMI ports. And you do not have to worry about installing external speaker cables, because the 16-W audio system has also been cooked. The EX10000 Pro is now available for US$1,299.99.
Epson considers the Pro EX9240 model versatile enough to be used in a home workspace or large conference room for socially remote group meetings when lockout restrictions are lifted. The unit also uses 3LCD 3-chip technology, but relies on a light source, not a laser – although the estimated lifespan of the lights has not been revealed.
Users can expect Full HD images at 4,000 lumens of color and white brightness and a contrast of 16,000: 1. There is a 1.6x optical zoom, automatic keystone correction wireless connectivity with Miracast support, two HDMI ports, and a 16-W speaker.
Epson’s latest new business offering is the least capable, but it’s also the cheapest at $499.99. The EX3280 features 3-chip 3LCD projection technology and a combination of light source lights for XGA resolution (1,024 x 768) that produces 3,600 lumens of color and white brightness and 15,000:1 contrast.
It also has built-in speakers, but is not as strong as the other two models. However, it lacks automatic keystone correction, zoom or wireless connectivity, although the streaming device can be plugged into its single HMDI port.
