Epson has introduced the EB-1880, EB-1860 and EB-1840W; a series of affordable, compact projectors designed to deliver high-quality presentations quickly and easily, with a range of helpful features. Powered by Epson’s 3LCD technology, the projectors provide a vibrant, high-quality picture, thanks to an equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 4,000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 2,500:1. The new projectors have been launched in response to market demand.

Setting up and using the series couldn’t be easier. The projectors automatically search for the video source, so the user doesn’t need to do anything after connecting. Sound is provided by a built-in speaker, with the EB-1880 delivering up to 10W and the EB-1860 and EB-1840W providing 5W; while the 3-in-1 USB display feature means a single cable is all that’s needed for audio, visual and mouse control. For further ease-of-use, aligning the picture takes just seconds. Vertical keystone correction is automatic and horizontal keystone can be adjusted using an intuitive slider or dedicated button.

The series is also versatile. The EB-1880 has a wide range of inputs, including HDMI. In addition, all the models in the series have a direct connection for Epson’s ELP-DC06 USB document camera to give a close-up view of documents or even 3D objects. Kelvin Reynolds, general manager, Epson Southern Africa, said: “Not only does this new projector series offer high brightness and a range of helpful features at an affordable price, the total cost of ownership is extremely low, as the projectors offer low power consumption combined with a long lamp life.

“Another advantage is the capability for remote network management. This helps keep maintenance costs down by allowing it to be monitored from a single point on the network, removing the need for physical checks.”
