Projectors a ‘must-have’ in the modern workplace

0 comments

Projectors are no longer considered a luxury, but a crucial part of productive and efficient businesses and classrooms.
Far from the bulky, archaic devices that many of us remember from our school days, Epson’s recently launched EB-1400, EB-1700 and EB-2000 projector models offer an effective solution to many of the school environment and workplace challenges faced today.
In a recent Epson study conducted to measure the readability of information displayed on various screen sizes, over 50% of respondents found it difficult to read and absorb information from a 70-inch TV screen. Illustrating the importance that large displays have on information retention and interest, the study found inaccuracies in more than half of respondents’ feedback when they were asked to read charts and text-based information from the TV-screen.
Epson’s recently launched EB-1700 and EB-2000 smart projector ranges deliver 3LCD high-quality images even in high ambient light environments, ensuring that content is displayed in an easy-to-read manner with significantly enhanced imagery and detailing.
The larger display also creates a more interactive and collaborative experience for audiences. The Epson EB-1400 range allows you to easily save, share or print whiteboard content (depending on the model) with others. These features are particularly useful for sharing information with those who were not able to attend the class or meeting.
From an operational standpoint, projectors offer a level of efficiency and technological innovation that every meeting and lesson needs. The interactive Epson EB-1700 projector range features ‘Gesture Presenter’ which allows you to switch between slides simply by gesturing. In addition, Horizontal and Vertical Keystone Correction corrects the geometry of the projected image in both a vertical and horizontal direction, making the presentation venue less defined by space restrictions.
“Meetings and classes can easily become boring, time-wasting affairs unless more effort and investment is put into running them more effectively,” says Timothy Wilson, VI Product Manager at Epson South Africa. “With a projector in the room, people are instantly more attentive and receptive to the information being shared. There’s also a lot to be said for the easy setup process which allows you to spend less time stressing over technical difficulties.”
The Epson EB-1400, EB-1700 and EB-2000 projector ranges are incredibly easy to set up, offering a variety of connectivity options.
The high-end ultra-short-throw projectors feature Wi-Fi and LAN capability for wider connectivity, as well as HDBASE_T connectivity, which has proven beneficial when managing presentations in large auditoriums where signal cable length can be a problem.
In addition, the EB-1700 range offers wireless connectivity via NFC enabling projection using a smartphone or tablet, and MHL support makes it easy to show high-quality video and audio content from mobile devices, while charging them at the same time.
“Projectors are ideal for creating a modern, interactive and productive workplace and classroom, with many of the latest models currently available offering highly advanced features designed to add value to every kind of environment, from digital and design agencies, to Universities, to construction firms, schools and meeting spaces,” says Wilson.
