Epson just unveiled their latest projection technologies at the Epson Projection Conference & Showcase 2018. Join us for the big reveal of the 2018 Epson laser projectors and smart glasses!
The 2018 Epson Laser Projectors & Smart Glasses
Held at the Sunway Convention Centre, the Epson Town setup showcased the 2018 Epson projection innovations using the concept of a small town built around the use and application of their revolutionary 3LCD and laser projection technologies.
With precision and performance at the centre of the showcase, guests experience a live demonstration on the impact of holistic integrated solutions on areas such as education, corporate, home, retail, as well as public spaces for businesses and consumers.
World’s First 3LCD Laser Ultra-Short Throw Projectors
Heading the 2018 Epson laser projector line-up are their first 3LCD laser ultra-short throw projectors – the Epson EB-1470Ui and Epson EB-700U projectors
Epson is the first manufacturer to combine inorganic 3LCD panels with an inorganic phosphor wheel. The projectors’ laser light source provides up to 20,000 hours of operation with virtually no maintenance needed. Both the projectors deliver 4,000 lumens of white and colour brightness and WUXGA resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.
The Epson EB-1470Ui Projector
The Epson EB-1470Ui projector combines laser light source technology with ultra-short throw interactivity, turning nearly any flat surface turning it into an interactive touch-enabled digital whiteboard. This makes it the ideal collaboration solution for meeting rooms or classrooms.
The EB-1470Ui supports up to 100-inch screen size, providing better readability and enhancing productivity. It can also support seamless interactivity across dual screens for a larger-than-life interactive presentation. Two projectors can be paired side by side to create an ultra-wide interactive screen of up to 177-inch for the classroom or boardroom.
An interactive table top can also be created with the optional table mount. Users can write or draw on Microsoft Office documents with the Microsoft Ink function, and the annotations can be conveniently saved into the PC as Microsoft office file.
It can also enable interactive discussions with an in-built digital interactive whiteboard that can be shared with up to 15 laptops and mobile devices within the network, to view and co-create live drawings and images in real time for active collaboration. It has many other great functionalities too.
The Epson EB-700U Projector
The Epson EB-700U projector, on the other hand, can project up to 130-inch in portrait or landscape mode and with its ultra-short throw, multi-direction projection capabilities and PC-less functionality, it is ideal to be used as a digital signage for projection in confined retail settings and corporate or public spaces for display.
The EB-700U can be rotated 360 degrees in all directions without any loss in image brightness, making it suitable for projecting on walls, ceilings and floors. It does not need to be connected to a PC and photo slide shows can be loaded directly from a USB memory key.
The projector starts up within 5 seconds, ensuring smooth and timely displays. With a contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1, the EB-700U delivers sharpness and crisp image quality even in well-lit environments. It comes with diverse connectivity options, as well as remote management and control tools for ease of access and maintenance,
The Epson EB-L1700 Projectors
Besides these laser ultra-short throw projectors, Epson also launched the EB-L1700 series, the most compact series of 3LCD laser projectors in its class, with brightness of 15,000 lumens. The projectors integrate inorganic 3LCD panels with an inorganic phosphor wheel to achieve superior light and heat resistance for spectacular image quality, reliability and durability.
With its laser light source, the EB-L1700 series of projectors deliver outstanding levels of colour brightness for extremely long periods, of up to 20,000 hours of maintenance free use, in high quality SXGA+ and WUXGA resolutions.
Designed to operate 24/7, the EB-L1700 projectors have an improved dust resistance design and are ideal for applications requiring continuous projection including events, storefronts, museums, digital signage and more. With a laser light source, the projectors reach maximum brightness quickly, in just under 7 seconds.
With an operating system that enables easy set-up and control of geometry features for seamless projection, which includes edge-blending, curve projection, corner wall projection, point correction, quick corner and others, Epson offers up to 9 different types of lenses for these projectors.
The 2018 Epson Moverio Smart Glasses
The new Epson Moverio BT-350 Smart Glasses have the potential to transform museum experiences around the world by bringing augmented reality to life. It is the first production-volume smart glasses designed for a busy, commercial environment where the glasses are for multiple-user deployment, with a first-of-its-kind docking station for easy device management.
Epson also showcased the Moverio Pro BT-2200 smart headset, designed for critical industrial needs. It is based on a rugged and durable platform built specifically for helmet-mandatory environments. Through augmented reality overlays, the headset enables workers in various locations to see exactly what their counterparts are seeing to provide informed support and training.
The smart headset comes with a new hinge specifically designed to fit over front brim helmets, making it an ideal device for use in dangerous worksites that require workers to put on helmets such as in construction environment.
