Epson’s New PowerLite 96W Projector

Epson PowerLite 96WEpson’s new PowerLite 96W is a nice multimedia projector designed with the classroom or meeting room in mind. There are a lot of different features on the projector that make it perfect for any type of presentation situation and it even has the ability to be connected to a LAN, run presentations from a USB drive or control other projectors connected to the same internet network.

The light source for this projector, which is based on the 3LCD technology that Epson pioneered, outputs 2,700 lumens while the projector also provides a WXGA resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Physical dimensions of the device measure 4.2″ x 13.6″ x 10.3″ with the projector weighing in at 7.2lbs. The projector also features a manual focus as well as zoom wheels that you can access via an indention above the lens.

There are also a ton of ports on this device too. All in all, the PowerLite 96W comes with VGA-in (2), monitor-out VGA (1), HDMI-in (1), RCA (3) for Composite Video and Audio, S-Vide0 (1), USB (1), RS-232 (1), Ethernet (1) and microphone jack (1). This should cover pretty much anything you need to do with this device but if not, I’m sure there is an adapter out there somewhere.

Reports on this projector note that this device is definitely made for viewing still images and not long video clips. It does seem to handle short video clips ok but screening a full-length movie would not be advisable due to loss of detail over time and posterization. Sound quality is also adequate with the device’s built-in 16W speaker.

With all the connectivity options, as well as internet connectivity via LAN or WiFi and the ability to accept input from multiple computers, the PowerLite 96W is a fairly good projector for use in small or medium meeting rooms as well as classrooms. Presentations run smoothly and the ability to play a few video clips just adds to the accessibility of the overall product.
