Epson Expands EX-Series Projector Lineup Delivering Far More Accurate Color than Leading CompetitorsNew Epson Projectors Offer Best in Class Image Quality
“Gone are the days when projectors were only used to display slides – multimedia content, including images and video, is becoming the de facto standard and business users require projection solutions able to display that bright, vibrant and high resolution content,” said Kristi Lanzit, product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Epson’s new EX-Series projectors deliver far more accurate color with 3x higher Color brightness1 and up to 3x wider color gamut(4) than leading competitive projectors. Epson, which was recently voted No. 1 for image quality(5), is committed to delivering projection solutions that will make any presenter shine.”
The EX9200 Pro delivers premium, WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200) and the latest connectivity. WUXGA resolution is ideal for detailed charts, graphics, video, and excel spreadsheets with 4.5x more resolution than SVGA to project in Full HD 1080p . The EX7240 delivers WXGA resolution (1280 x 800) for HD-quality presentations and videos from a range of devices. Both projectors include HDMI®, MHL support(6), and easy wireless setup, including Epson’s exclusive quick connect with on-screen QR code for easy access to content from smartphones and tablets – users simply turn the projector on, use the free Epson iProjection™ app(7) to scan the on-screen QR code and be instantly connected to share content.
The EX3240 allows users to present standard charts and graphics for presentations easily. With SVGA resolution (800 x 600) and a host of innovative setup features, the EX3240 is a reliable projector that allows users to start presenting in no time. It also supports HDMI, the digital connectivity standard, for compatibility with the latest laptops and media players.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance
The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society for Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today’s high definition content, presenters can display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. For more information, visit http://www.colorlightoutput.com.
