In addition to the eight new education laser projectors announced last Wednesday, Epson has introduced another eight laser projectors for use as digital signage solutions. They output from 2,000 to 5,000 ANSI lumens and the projectors range from ultra-short throw to standard throw configurations. All of the projectors are designed to increase the immersive experience for the consumer in retail and other public spaces with their inconspicuous design and special signage features.
These new projectors and other innovative models are being featured in Epson's virtual booth at Projection Expo 2020, where 23 exhibitors are showcasing more than 130 products and services through July 15th.
At the top of the list is the powerful 5,000 lumen PowerLite 800F ultra-short-throw projector. It has a throw ratio of 0.27 - 0.37, can project an image ranging from a diagonal of 60 inches up to 130 inches, and includes HDBaseT connectivity. The PowerLite 750F UST can project an image from 65 inches up to 100 inches diagonal, outputs up to 3,600 lumens, and supports functionality for two to four split-screens. With a light output of up to 4,500 lumens, the PowerLite L250F standard-throw projector can display an image as small as 30 inches diagonal all the way up to 150 inches. The projectors are all available in white - as the 800F, 750F, and L250F - or black - as the 805F, 755F, and L255F.
The six projectors all use Epson's 3LCD technology and have Full HD (1920x1080) resolution, equal color and white brightness, and a maintenance-free 20,000-hour laser light source. When two or more projectors are connected, they can use built-in edge blending to create seamless images over large areas. They all have optional 5GHz wireless connectivity.
The Epson Creative Projection app for iOS is free content management software that is included with the new signage projectors. With it, users can create and edit their own content including the combining videos and photos, adding preset filters, uploading new effects, or adding text. The app also includes scheduling and playlist functions.
A portable option is the PowerLite W70 (in white) or black W75. This mini projector is just under six pounds, has a throw ratio of 1 - 1.4, and can project an image between 30 and 150 inches diagonal. It has native WXGA (1280x720) resolution, and a laser light source that output up to 2,000 lumens. It has Bluetooth audio connectivity and a hideaway compartment for streaming devices.
The PowerLite W70/W75 will be available in June, followed by the 800F/805F and 750F/755F in September, and in November, the PowerLite L250F/L255F.[BAN1BAN2BAN3]
