Tuned to meet the needs of the changing work environments, Epson has released three new 3LCD business projectors—the Pro EX10000, Pro EX9240 and EX3280. All three have a listed light output of 3,600 lumens or more, making them suitable for situations with ambient light.
At the top of the list is the Pro EX10000 wireless projector, the only one of the three with a laser light source. The light source is rated for 4,500 lumens and will last up to 20,000 hours without the need for maintenance. The projector has a 1.6x optical zoom, auto keystone correction, a 16-watt built-in speaker, and is capable of a 1080p (1920x1080) image using pixel shifting technology. Sources can be connected through two HDMI ports or wirelessly with Miracast. The Pro EX10000 sells for $1,300.
The Pro EX9240 has many similarities—including a 1.6x optical zoom, built-in 16-watt speaker, and auto keystone correction. It also has wireless connection capability via Miracast and two HDMI ports. The projector diverges from the Pro EX10000 with its light source, which is a traditional lamp as opposed to a laser and produces 4,000 lumens of white and color brightness, a characteristic shared by all three projectors thanks to their three-chip architecture. The Pro EX9240 has a native resolution of 1080p without the need of pixel shifting. It is available for $850.
Rounding out the announced projectors is the EX3280, an XGA (1024x768) resolution lamp-based projector that produces 3,600 lumens of color and white brightness. Its features are trimmed down in comparison to the Pro EX10000 and Pro EX9240. It has a built-in speaker and a single HDMI port for source connections. The EX3280 MSRP is $500.
All of the projectors come with a two-year limited warranty and are available now.
