Projectors for business - Epson have introduced the EMP-83 and EMP-822 – high performance, high quality projectors for business. With a high resolution for sharp presentations, network functionality for easy maintenance and anti-theft features, the EMP-83 and EMP-822 are ideal for any boardroom.
Epson announces the launch of two new versatile business projectors. The EMP-822 features 2600 ANSI lumens of brightness, while the EMP-83 features 2200 ANSI lumens. Both models deliver clear, bright and defined images in all lighting conditions thanks to a high XGA resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and Epson’s 3LCD and E-TORL technologies. The projectors incorporate improved security features including a metal security bar to secure the projectors to the ceiling. Password protection and Kensington Lock connection are also provided to ensure peace of mind in high traffic environments. With a distinctive new rugged two-tone design, the EMP-83 and EMP-822 will make an impressive addition to any meeting room.
With low power consumption, increased lamp life and a lens cover timer, the EMP-83 and EMP-822 have been designed for high performance and energy efficiency. Set up and cool down time is no longer a problem thanks to Epson’s Quick Start and Instant Off features. Functionality is further enhanced with the Easy-Use remote control, which features three zones to help the user progress through each stage of the process: preparation, setting and presentation.
Epson has also incorporated a number of unique features to ensure the EMP-83 and EMP-822 are perfectly suited for ceiling mounting. Epson’s EasyMP network monitoring technology gives advance notice of any potential maintenance required, eliminating the expense, inconvenience and time spent solving any problems after they occur. The system can be accessed via a remote networked computer. A web browser generates email alerts and provides essential information including the temperature status or when air filters or projector lamps need to be changed. If any changes are required, they are easy and quick to perform. The new easy grab filter and lamp can be replaced by simply accessing their covers on the side and top of the projector respectively.
Bright, natural images and smooth, sharp video playback are achieved thanks to Epson’s 3LCD technology. The new E-TORL lamp has also been improved to effectively reduce light leakage and minimise light diffraction so that premium quality projected images are easily achieved in a wide range of lighting environments.
The EMP-83 and EMP-822 are highly versatile projectors, supporting a wide range of sources and inputs. With the addition of RJ45 and RS232C connectivity, it’s even easier to integrate the projectors with your existing network. A built-in 7W speaker also enables audio presentations to be enjoyed via a video or PC connection.
Graeme Davidson, Product Manager, Epson UK, says, “The EMP-83 and EMP-822 offer businesses reliability, performance and superior functionality, making them ideally suited for ceiling mounting. The EMP network system minimises downtime and provides an unprecedented tool-set for projector management. Improved energy efficiency features including the increased lamp life make them more cost effective projectors for businesses. The additional security features provide peace of mind for those operating in high-traffic environments.”
