Epson America has introduced the first in a new series of high-brightness, low-cost projectors ideal for conference rooms and classrooms. The Epson VS400 provides presenters with XGA resolution and 4,000 lumens color and white light output for ultra-bright presentations and vibrant color.
“Epson listens to its customers and strives to meet their projection needs, whether it is for increased functionality or simplicity and brightness. The market has been looking for a value-priced projector with high brightness, basic functionality and the versatility for use in all lighting conditions,” said Jason Meyer, product manager, Epson America. “The simple, bright, easy-to-use Epson VS400, offering 4,000 lumens for under $1,000, delivers on that demand. This projector is the perfect value option for anyone who doesn’t need advanced connectivity options.”
Featuring the latest 3LCD, 3-chip technology, the Epson VS400 delivers true-to-life color and detail for powerful presentations, the company says. Additionally, 3LCD technology provides an energy efficient light engine which creates images, and in contrast to 1-chip DLP technology, 3LCD requires, on average, 25 percent less electricity per lumen of brightness.
The Epson VS400 also provides presenters with value-added features such as Epson’s exclusive E-TORL lamp technology which enables the lamp life to last up to 3,500 hours in economy mode. A built-in closed captioning decoder makes presentations accessible to hearing impaired viewers with no added cost. The VS400 also offers convenient control features like Direct Power On and Off which allows an installed projector to be powered with a wall switch and Instant On/Off which enables presenters to avoid delays when starting and finishing presentations by instantly powering on and off the projector with no cool down time. In addition, the convenient A/V Mute Slide instantly turns off the sound and images to create a quick pause in the presentation, conserving lamp life and energy, and helping to save costs.
The Epson VS400 will be available in July for $999. To learn more, visit Epson.com.
