Epson today announced the launch of a range of short-throw projectors aimed at classrooms or small meeting rooms.

The series includes the EB-520, EB-525W, EB-530, EB-535W and EB-536Wi, all of which use 3LCD technology for image optimisation and colour fidelity. Each model can operate on a table or mounted on a ceiling or wall.

The range also features a high contrast ratio designed for enhanced image detail and brightness in brightly lit environments.

The EB units also include a lamp designed to last "66% longer than previous equivalent models, giving the projectors a low total cost of ownership" according to Epson. An A/V mute function also saves power by dimming the lamp by 70%. Once a projector has been configured, the on-screen display settings can be copied from one projector to many others via USB dongle, USB cable or network.

The projectors also come with a range of connectivity options, including HDMI, and a dual interactive pen capability allows two users to annotate on the screen area simultaneously.

 "These high-quality projectors offer schools and businesses a versatile solution, which can be installed in individual classrooms or shared between several rooms or campuses," said Khalil El-Dalu, general manager, Epson Middle East. "They are the ideal replacement for older projectors or as an alternative to more expensive interactive whiteboards or ultra-short throw projectors."
