Epson recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its revolutionary projector technology with the launch of its EB-Z high brightness large-scale venue projector series.
In conjunction with the celebration, Epson created an outdoor projection showcase to demonstrate the new projectors’ flexibility in cutting-edge projection applications.
The company also displayed its latest range of 3LCD projectors that ensure superior quality images and true-to-life colours – the hallmarks of the company’s leadership in the industry.
Set to revolutionise large-scale presentations, Epson’s latest ultra-bright, high-definition EB-Z9000/11000 projector series are exceptionally suitable for outdoor or large venue installation. T
Combining Epson’s industry-leading 3LCD technology and other projection technologies, Epson’s brightest projectors to-date offer superior cinema-quality projections, unparalleled projection versatility and set-up flexibility as well as unmatched reliability.
“The projector business will continue to be the centre of Epson’s visual communications business. With the launch of these new models, we hope to strengthen our pole position in the market here and globally,” said Shimizu Tomoya, country manager for Epson Malaysia.
“These models are launched with the aim of providing more solutions and projection options to a wider number of industries, taking visual communications to a whole new level beyond classrooms and boardrooms,” said Danny Lee, General manager of sales and marketing for Epson Malaysia.
“We see a lot of potential and an increased adoption of such large-scale projection technology within industries like events, entertainment and arts, building mapping, retail and other businesses applications.”
With an equal high colour and white brightness level of 11,000 lumens, the EB-Z9000/11000 series offers superior image quality and its geometric correction capabilities give users the ability to project on practically anywhere, including curved surfaces or corner walls.
The EB-Z9000/11000 series also include edge-blending capabilities which allow users to adjust fine brightness and colour while controlling the crossover edge to seamlessly project multiple images using two or more projections simultaneously for more compelling panoramic presentations.
Flexible installation options mean that users are no longer restricted to projecting in landscape format, as these new Epson models can project in portrait mode. They also come with seven interchangeable lenses including one short throw lens, greatly increasing installation options.
As part of the celebration Epson also showcased its latest range of projectors that aim to boost efficiency and productivity in the office, while preserving true-to-life colour projections.
The Epson EB-1400 series features finger-touch interactive ultra-short throw projectors that redefine the boundaries of what is possible in workplace collaboration. Meeting participants can use their fingers to draw and annotate on projected contents on-screen. They can also enjoy improved navigational experience by using finger gestures such as swipe, flick, press and tap and pinch zoom to control contents on screen.
The EB-1400 series also brings inter-office collaboration to new heights with its multi-location interactive capabilities that allow users in separate offices to connect via the internet and share annotations made on their respective projectors.
The Whiteboard Share function provides even more engagement and participation, as content from the projector’s whiteboard mode can be shared with participants through a URL link that can be accessed by PC or smart device. Up to 15 devices can be connected at any one time, which means meeting participants can play a more active role during discussions. The ultra-short throw projectors offer equally high white and colour brightness of 3300 lumens while the interactive function provides users with complete control at the touch of a finger.
“Image quality has always been of utmost importance for Epson, which is why our focus continues to centre not only on high brightness but also high colour brightness. Our revolutionary 3LCD technology, which has helped us retain our No. 1 market position for 13 years, is a testament of this commitment,” said Tomoya.
“We are confident that by continuing to innovate on cutting edge features, coupled with our highly successful 3LCD technology, we will deliver the best value to our customers,” he added.
First introduced in 1989, Epson’s 3LCD technology creates astoundingly beautiful images in bright, natural colour without dither noise or colour breakup. 3LCD projectors are also gentler on the eyes and offer smoother video playback, as they utilise three separate liquid crystal panels to form a continuous image containing all colours. 2014 marks the 25th Anniversary of the development of Epson’s revolutionary 3LCD technology.
