The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has named the Epson EH-TW7200 as Best Photo Projector for 2014. TIPA, comprised of the editors and technical specialists at the world’s leading photography and imaging magazines, judges the innovation, technology, design, ease-of-use and price-to-performance ratio of products launched in a 12-month period to develop a shortlist and winner for each award category.

Ian Cameron, GM for global sales and marketing support at Epson, comments, “TIPA members are all experts in their field and therefore select products according to the strictest standards. The panel has a huge variety of choice so we are very proud to learn that an Epson product has once again been selected for these much valued awards.”

In judging the Epson EH-TW7200, the judging panel says, “While aimed at the home video viewer, the Epson EH-TW7200 also delivers stunning still image quality for the home, camera club, educational and small room photo teaching environments. The unit offers wide and tele-lens shift options, which allows for versatile setups and projection distances, as well as 2 000 lumen output in both colour and white light.

“Vivid colour and contrast is delivered via a 120 000:1 contrast ratio. Resolution is Full HD 1080p and there’s a manual keystone correction control of up to +/- 30 degrees. Interfaces include USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4, Composite in, Component in and SVideo in. The unit is also capable of delivering 3D content and one set of RF 3D glasses come with the unit.”

With members in nine European countries plus Australia, Canada, China, India, South Africa and the USA, TIPA is one of the largest and most influential photographic and imaging press associations in the world. This 2014 accolade means that Epson has now received a total of 34 awards from TIPA for technologies and imaging products, including inkjet printers, inks, scanners and projectors, since 1997.
