Said to deliver 200 more lumens than its predecessor, the Epson PowerLite 93+ projector comes with an affordable price tag that falls just below the $700 mark. The device is expected to launch this coming March with a built-in speaker system and various connectivity features.
Aimed towards K-12 classrooms, the newly unveiled projector is capable of delivering 2,600 lumens of color and white light for displaying better quality pictures with XGA resolutions. Eliminating the need for additional equipment, this device comes fitted with its own internal speaker system of 16 watts. Complimenting the USB plug-and-play support, which enables users to conveniently transmit audio and images as well as control presentation through a PC or Mac, is the extended lamp life that’s most likely to last up to 6,000 hours in economy mode.
Heather Litus Johnston, product manager, K-12 Education Marketing, Epson America, commented, “Bright projectors are in high demand for classrooms with a lot of ambient light, and they help to improve learning environments for students. The PowerLite 93+ is not only incredibly bright, it comes equipped with a wide range of features at an affordable price, demonstrating Epson’s dedication to providing flexible and robust classroom solutions.”
Claimed to utilize 25% lesser electricity per lumen of brightness through the 3-chip technology that’s branded as 3LCD, the projector is accompanied by a number of connectivity features. For high quality images and audio output, it is equipped with an HDMI port. The RJ-45 wired LAN port can be used for remote projector management and as a virtual remote control.
The Epson PowerLite 93+ projector price amounts to $699 and it will be available with a two-year limited warranty starting March 2012, through retail outlets or from the company’s online store.
