Epson Announces Ultra-Bright, High-Value XGA Projector For Small And Medium Businesses

Portable Epson EX90 Projector Delivers 2,600 Lumens and Robust Feature Set; Available Directly at National Resellers
LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 12, 2008 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced the Epson EX90 projector, a powerful multimedia projector that offers 2,600 lumens of white and color light output, XGA resolution and Epson’s latest 3-Chip LCD technology to deliver crisp and vibrant presentations in virtually any environment. The six-pound projector is $899 (estimated street price), and provides breakthrough performance for businesses that require a versatile, ultra-bright projector for high impact presentations. The Epson EX90 projector is available at leading retail locations including Staples and OfficeMax.

“A great visual presentation is often dependent on the ability to engage and captivate your audience – whether you’re pitching a potential client or presenting the results of a successful campaign,” said Carrie Brown, product manager, Epson. “The Epson EX90 offers a combination of superior color, brightness, and ease-of-use that will enable any business user to deliver a first-rate multimedia presentation, including streaming video, sharp photographs and crisp graphics.”

The Epson EX90 projector includes a carrying case for easy portability and offers additional significant cost of ownership advantages. It features Epson’s proprietary twin-optimized reflective E-TORL™ technology. Lamps using E-TORL technology have up to 50 percent longer lamp life than standard lamps, and are more energy efficient – reducing total cost of ownership significantly.
