Epson has a pair of new wall-mounted ultra-short-throw projectors for the classroom. The PowerLite 450W and PowerLite 460 provide bright projection, versatile viewing dimensions and easy installation without bursting the budget.
The PowerLite 450W ($1,499) features 2,500 lumens white light output, 2,500 lumens color light output and WXGA resolution (16:10 aspect ratio). The PowerLite 460 ($1,699) offers 3,000 lumens white light output, 3,000 lumens color light output and XGA resolution. ?
They can be mounted as close as 2.5 inches away from the wall to accommodate smaller classrooms or meeting rooms, and can easily be used with a standard or interactive whiteboard, projection screen or a simple white wall. They can project a 60-inch diagonal image with the lens only 18 inches away.
They come with all hardware for quick and easy and are ideal for use with standard or interactive whiteboards, as the ultra-short throw distance significantly reduces shadow interference. Both models include closed captioning, a 10 W speaker, the ability to deliver presentations over the network, and optional wireless capabilities.
?With wired or wireless networked presentations, educators can teach remotely, include several classrooms in one lesson by showing the same content, or allow principals to deliver presentations to the entire school without students ever leaving the classroom.
“Epson designed the PowerLite 450W and 460 as solutions for educators, knowing that the demand for ultra short throw projection is on the rise as classroom space decreases and whiteboard use increases,” said Heather Litus Johnston, product manager for K-12 Education Projection at Epson America. “Epson’s commitment to the education market inspires us to create solutions that meet educators’ needs in any teaching scenario, and these models offer the high-quality features educators have come to expect from Epson in a new ultra-short-throw form factor that will greatly benefit teachers and students alike.” ?
