Epson has introduced a range of 3LCD laser ultra-short throw projectors, the EB-1470Ui and EB-700U, and a smart glasses for commercial and industrial applications during their Epson Projection Conference & Showcase 2018 which was held at Sunway Convention Center.
Epson is the first manufacturer to combine inorganic 3LCD panels with an inorganic phosphor wheel. The projectors’ laser light source can provide up to 20,000 hours of operation with no maintenance needed. Both the projectors delivers 4,000 lumens of white and colour brightness with WUXGA beyond Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels for a dynamic viewing experience.
The EB-147Ui projector combines cutting-edge laser light source technology with ultra-short throw interactivity to bring excellent image quality durability and interactivity to meetings and classrooms. It also supports up to 100-inch screen size, providing better readability and enhancing productivity. Two of the same projectors can be paired to create an ultra-wide interactive screen of up to 177-inch.
The EB-700U can project up to 130-inch in portrait or landscape mode and with the ultra-short throw and multi-direction projection capabilities and PC-less functionality, it can be used as a digital signage for projection in confined spaces. It can also be rotated 360 degrees in all direction without loss in image brightness, making it ideal for projections on walls, ceilings and floors. The EB-700U has a startup time of 5 seconds and a contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1 to offer sharp and crisp image quality even in well-lit environments.
Lastly, is the EB-L1700 which comes with a brightness of 15,000 lumens. Integrated with 3LCD panels with inorganic phosphor wheel, it can achieve superior light and heat resistance for excellent image quality, reliability and durability. With its laser light source, it can deliver great colour brightness for up to 20,000 hours of mantenance free use in high quality SXGA+ and WUXGA resolutions.
Epson also showed off the Moverio BT-350 Smart Glasses which has the potential to transform museum experiences around the world by bringing augmented reality to life. It is the first smart glasses designed for busy commercial environments and support multiple-user deployments with a docking station for easy device management.
For the industrial sector, there is the Moverio Pro BT-2200 smart headset designed for industrial needs. Built specifically for helmet-mandatory environments. Through AR overlays, the headset allows workers in various locations to see what their colleagues are seeing for support and training.
