A new portable business projector has been released by Epson. The 880X is a 1080p (1920x1080) portable smart projector rated at 3,300 lumens of color and white brightness. It uses 3-chip LCD technology and a traditional lamp that has a lamp life of up to 6,000 hours in Normal mode and 12,000 hours in ECO mode. Genuine replacement lamps (model ELPLP97) cost $59. Epson lists its contrast ratio as up to 16,000:1.
The Epson 880X is capable of projecting images up to a 300-inch diagonal and has a throw ratio of 1.21-1.63:1. For easy setup, a built-in sensor can automatically adjust the vertical keystone to square up the image. There's also a digital zoom range of 1-1.35 to help fit it to your projection surface. A native 16:9 image can be resized to either 16:10 or 4:3.
Included is Epson's ELPAP12 streaming player loaded with the Android TV OS, so when not in meetings, the 880X can stream apps like Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube. The Android TV OS platform also allows for Chromecast capability from mobile devices.
If you need to connect an external device via cables, there's a single HDMI, USB Type-A (the flat one), and USB Type-B (the square one). There's a built-in 2 watt speaker or a separate speaker can be connected with a 3.5 mm audio out or via Bluetooth.
