Epson Middle East has grown its projector range with the launch of the EMP-821, a 2600 ANSI lumens XGA model designed specifically for large meeting and conference use. “As conferences, meetings and seminars have become part of the professional life here in the Middle East, the new projector is ideally suited to meet the needs of this growing business sector,” said Khalil El-Dalu, general manager, Epson Middle East. “The EMP-821 is a versatile machine with a host of features that combine ease of use with competitive pricing.” The new multimedia projector offers a quoted lamp life of 3000 hours, which Epson claims helps reduce overall running costs, as the lamp is the one costly component that users must occasionally replace. The EMP-821 is a quiet operator too, with a fan noise of 30dB. In keeping with its billing as a conference solution, the EMP-821 has varied inputs and a monitor-out socket, which allows a computer signal to be simultaneously displayed on the projector and a monitor. Even when the projector is turned off, users can view information from their computer directly on a monitor, avoiding the need to change cabling. Epson claims the model’s relatively high zoom ratio of 1:1:6 provides more flexibility for presenters while display wise a projection of 60 inches can be achieved from any distance between 1.8m up to 2.8m, meaning the projector is suited to use in a range of positions and in rooms of varied sizes. The EMP-821 also comes with a network option so that users can control the projector remotely from a networked PC. The 821’s retail price has been set at $2530.
