Information gets crisper, brighter and more shareable with Ricoh's newest high-end projectors

Offering resolution up to 1920 x 1200 dpi, new systems help workers more broadly, vividly share valuable business information

MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh today introduced its brightest projectors to date, enabling presenters to deliver new, crisper presentations to larger audiences in conference rooms, auditoriums, churches and classrooms.

The new RICOH PJ WU6181N Projector and RICOH PJ WX6181N Projector enable presenters to use PCs, Macs and flash drives to display big, bright and sharp images as large as 500 inches diagonal. A choice of six interchangeable lenses makes it easy to project from the most convenient spot, whether two feet or 168 feet from a screen. <

The new RICOH PJ WU6181N offers true widescreen HD 1920 x 1200 dpi resolution (WUXGA) with a brightness of 6,200 lumens. The RICOH PJ WX6181N Projector offers 1280 x 800 dpi (WXGA) resolution and a brightness of 6,700 lumens. Their 16:10 aspect ratio displays movies in their original widescreen format with sound from a built-in 10-watt speaker.

Both projectors are packed with functionality for displaying presentations, video or digital signage. Wired and optional wireless networking enables a presenter to download content to the projector on the fly and present through multiple projectors located around a building or the world. Meeting management apps enable presenters to hand off screen control to audience members from their laptops. The projectors can be stacked, ceiling-mounted, or rotated to project in portrait mode, and keystone correction ensures a squared-off image even when projecting from odd angles.

"The RICOH PJ WU6181N and RICOH PJ WX6181N give organizations new ways to make the information they share more powerful, accessible and shareable," said John Brophy, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Presenters can serve up HD images, video, PowerPoints, designs and more for presentations without constraints in room size, projection distance, source device or location. In this new world of work, these systems make it easy to share information with any audience."

The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $5,100 for the RICOH PJ WU6181N Projector and $3,499 for the RICOH PJ WX6181N Projector.
