Epson Debuts New Business Series EB-1410Wi and EB-1400Wi Projectors

Epson EB-1410WiEpson has just announced the release of a complete digital solution for business meetings with the company’s new business series. The new series includes the EB-1410Wi and the EB-1400Wi, both of which were unveiled by Epson at the 2012 GITEX Technology Week in Dubai.

These devices combine the benefits of projectors, interactive whiteboards, flipcharts and other presentation equipment in a single device. They deliver a 100″ interactive projected image while also providing a wide variety of input sources, helping business professionals increase productivity while cutting installation costs by eliminating the need for multiple pieces of meeting room equipment.

Both of these models also offer some nice advanced features, allowing users to turn any surface into a 100″ interactive screen and annotate on any projected image from a plethora of input sources, like computers, office networks, USB memory sticks, visualizers and other smart devices.

Interactive pens are also provided, allowing users to to fully interact with computer software in the same way that they would with a mouse and even annotate meeting notes. As soon as your meeting is over, your notes can be saved and shared to office networks and USB memory in addition to being sent to other users via email.

Both projectors also have the ability to connect to Epson all-in-one business inkjet printers, like the WorkForcePro 4500 Series. In addition to that, users can scan documents directly to the projector and print out meetings notes while the majority of business printers can also be connected for printing purposes.

Finally, both the EB-1410Wi and EB-1400Wi also feature a multi-location function, allowing as many as four different projection systems to be remotely connected so that users can share images and presentations as well as annotate the same image remotely.

According to General Manager for Epson Middle East Khalil El-Dalu, “These new 100-inch interactive projection systems are much more than just interactive projectors, as they offer a complete digital solution for many business meetings. With one piece of equipment doing the job for three or four, businesses are able to reduce investment costs on additional equipment and streamline meetings more efficiently. Moreover, by launching this series at GITEX Technology Week we look to gain additional mileage given the excellent platform presented by this event.”

New VPL-HW50ES from Sony Works Well in Brightly Lit Rooms

VPL-HW50ES projectorOne of the biggest problems in using a projector during a business meeting or classroom lecture is that you usually have to turn the lights down or completely off in order to clearly see the screen. This makes it much harder for your audience to write down things of importance because they may have trouble seeing their own paper. However, Sony’s newest projector aims to make that problem obsolete.

The all new VPL-HW50ES is the latest in the company’s ES-Series of high performance audio-visual products. The VPL-HW50ES has a high light-efficiency lamp as well as better optics and is said to have a brightness output of up to 1,700 lumens.

If you combine this with the projector’s bright cinema and bright TV picture modes, brighter and clearer 3D visuals can be reproduced even in well-lit rooms, according to the company. Oh, did I forget to mention that this projector is also 3D capable? Well, it is.

The VPL-HW50ES is ready to play 3D movies out of the box with two pairs of bundled, infrared, active shutter glasses. In addition to that, wiring clutter is minimized via an integrated 3D synchronization transmitter. Other attributes of this projector include a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, dark frame insertion technology for smoother motion and two HDMI ports.

Full specifications for the Sony VPL-HW50ES include:

  • SXRD technology
  • Full-HD resolution
  • 1.6x optical zoom
  • Wide lens shift support
  • 407 x 179 x 464mm dimensions
  • 9.6kg weight

This projector is definitely something business professionals will want to look into. The ability to project in full HD, as well as 3D, in a well-lit room allows you to have professional-grade presentations without having to kill all the lights in the room, not only making it easier on your audience’s eyes but also allowing you to look more professional as well.

Christie Announces 4K Projectors for Business Customers

Christie Twist 4K4K projectors are typically reserved for the cinema market, though there has been an increasing desire for their use in other applications, mainly business. As a result of this growing demand, Christie has announced the official launch of the Christie Twist 4K projector at the International Broadcasting Convention 2012, otherwise known as IBC 2012, which recently took place in Amsterdam.

The Christie Twist 4K was designed for Christie 4K, 3-chip DLP projectors used in business applications and enables the warping, blending and color matching of multi-projector displays in large-screen, fixed installation applications. This means use in places like amusement parks, automotive designs, museums and planetariums that require exceptionally large images in a multi-channel format.

The Christie Twist 4K creates uniform, tiled images with superior color consistency across the entire display whenever you are using multiple projectors. According to Senior Director of Product Management Business Products at Christie George Tsintzouras, “Whether it’s a flat or curved surface, with Christie Twist 4K, ProAV professionals can now blend and color match images from multiple 4K projectors, easily creating large, ultra-high resolution canvasses that will amaze audiences like never before.”

The Christie Twist 4K is equipped with Quad DVI input, which allows for the use of standard DVI sources. “With Christie Twist 4K, Christie Expands its 4K solution offerings and gives end users the ability to create large, high-pixel density panoramas that show their content with the finest detail, without distortion,” Tsintzouras added.

There has yet to be any official word on pricing for the Christie Twist 4K, though a rough release date has been announced. According to the company, the Christie Twist 4K is set to ship out to customers sometime in October 2012.

DPI Upgrades the Brightness of All LED Projectors

Digital Projection International logoDPI, known formerly as Digital Projection International, has just upgraded the brightness across the board for every single one of its LED projectors. The company’s entire range of LED projectors, which includes the M-Vision and dVision series, has been outfitted with Helmholtz-Kohlrausch (H-K) effect, allowing an increased brightness.

The Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect has been defined as “a change in brightness perceived color produced by increasing the purity of a color stimulus while keeping its luminance constant within the range of photopic vision” by The International Electrotechnical  Commission.

Each of DPI’s LED projectors is now capable of delivering a far greater luminance. In addition to that, certain models, like the ones that are priced between $13,000 and $40,000, are even breaking right through the 1,000 lumen threshold. This new ability to increase the luminance also comes as a result of newly available components and tailored engineering.

Other projectors from DPI that come with the increased brightness also include the new dVision 35 series LED models. These models also have 3D capabilities and, like all of the company’s products, offer ‘Lifetime Illumination’, meaning that a lamp will never need to be replaced.

DPI also asserted that all of these projectors use a tiny amount of the power to run compared to traditional UHP lamp-sourced projectors. That basically means that not only are you getting an increased brightness output but you are also consuming less energy, making for a brighter, greener viewing experience.

InFocus Adds Three New Low-Cost, Short-Throw Projectors to Offerings

InFocus IN114STInFocus has just updated its short-throw projector offerings with the addition of new short-throw projectors designed to give consumers more options for low-cost, high-quality short-throw projectors. InFocus’ short-throw projector products are award-winning devices and some of the better short-throw projectors on the market, finding wide use in company board rooms, meeting rooms and small classrooms.

InFocus has announced the addition of the IN114ST, IN124ST and IN126ST projectors to its short-throw projector lineup. These new devices enable the projection of large images in small places while also offering high brightness and lower prices. This is what makes them perfect for the smaller settings of business meeting rooms and classrooms, where space is limited and quality needs to be high.

Dave Duncan, Product Market Manager for InFocus, has stated that the company is extremely excited about the release of these three new models. According to a recent statement by Duncan, “With three models we have a solution you can benefit from – whether it’s hanging on your whiteboard, ceiling mounted in your conference room, or roving the campus on a cart – the image will be fantastic!”

The IN114ST is easily portable while also providing 2,500 lumens of brightness along with a 1,024 x 768 XGA resolution, a 50% longer lamp life than its predecessor and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio. The IN124ST and IN126 are two of the lowest cost short-throw projectors that InFocus offers. The IN124ST has a 1,024 x 768 XGA resolution while the IN126ST has a 1,280 x 800 WXGA resolution. Both projectors also offer 3,000 lumens of brightness as well as advanced short-throw lenses along with HDMI connectivity and 4,000:1 contrast ratios.

Official pricing has not been released, though InFocus is claiming that these devices are low-cost which means that they should be similarly priced to the company’s other low-cost short-throw projector offerings. If you need a short-throw projector for your meeting room or small classroom then InFocus is definitely a brand you should check out.

Sony Debuts Two New Projector Series for SMB and Corporate Industries

Sony VPL-D100Sony has just debuted two new projector series for applications in small office, corporate or education environments. The new series include the new VPL-D100 series, which is specifically designed for the SMB industry and corporate markets, and the VPL-E200 series, which was designed with features that are specific to the education market.

Some of the more common features with these new projector series include an auto lamp dimming function, enabling the projector to intelligently detect if it is left on with a static signal being fed. If the projector detects a static signal, the lamp will dim to 30% of the original brightness at certain intervals that you can personally set. In addition to that, whenever a new signal is sent, the projector instantly returns to full brightness.

These new projectors also have an Auto Brightness Adjustment Function to help with unnecessary power consumption. This feature automatically adjusts the brightness of the lamp’s output depending on the brightness of the projected image. What this means is that if you are showing darker images that don’t require high brightness then the lamp will output less light.

All of the new projectors also come with an Eco Mode function that gives you the ability to switch between three brightness modes and also allows you to control the power consumption of the projector, increasing the overall life of the lamp and projector. What’s more is that by applying a new fine-tuned cooling system to reduce bulb clouding, Sony has also extended the lamp life to around 7,000 hours, depending on lamp mode, of course.

Standard features for the E200 series models include a 16W speaker, two RGB ports, HDMI, S-Video, RS-232C, RJ-45, microphone input and optional wireless capabilities. You can also perform remote control of multiple projectors which can also be accomplished by a wired LAN network, if the need arises. Wireless projection is also an option, though you will need the optional IFU-WLM3 wireless USB dongle if you want to connect wirelessly.

Both the VPL-DX120 and the VPL-DX140 are the first of Sony’s new D100 series targeted at the SMB industry and corporate market. They combine style and all the necessary features needed to survive in these strict markets and come standard with one RGB port, one HDMI port and one Video port. No word has been released on an actual release date or specific pricing for the new projectors.

Panasonic Debuts World’s First Lamp-Free 1080p Projectors

Panasonic PT-RZ470Panasonic has just unveiled a new projector that, on the surface, sounds impossible. That’s because Panasonic’s new device is the first ever 1080p lamp-free projector series with HDBaseT technology. This new projector series replaces your conventional lamp with new LED/laser diodes that are boosted by Panasonic’s proprietary technologies that offer long-lasting high brightness of more than 3,000 lumens.

The new projectors, which come as the single-chip DLP PT-RZ470 and PT-RZ370 Series, will be made available in two different resolutions: full 1080p HD (1,920 x 1,080) and WXGA (1,280 x 800) with capabilities that were previously impossible with conventional projector lamps.

These new projectors pair an LED/laser light source with Panasonic’s installation flexibility, including lens shift capabilities, which marks a new milestone in projector technology. This allows the projectors to provide users with continuous high brightness and professional grade features, including Edge Blending and Color Matching.

This new technology has also allowed Panasonic to enrich the projector usage experience for different environments, like the educational industry, as well as for professional applications, like museums, digital signage, conferences or other large corporate events.

In addition to that, the new lighting technology delivers up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation. As a result of this convenience, operating costs for the projectors are significantly less than conventional lamp projectors because you don’t have to worry about periodic labor and the associated cost that comes with it.

According to Panasonic, the PT-RZ470 and PT-RZ370 Series projectors will be available through authorized Panasonic resellers beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012. The series will have basic 3-year limited parts and labor warranties with light source operation warranted for more than 10,000 hours. Unfortunately, there has yet to be any word on pricing for either projector.
