Epson, the world leader in the projector market for over ten years, is now offering a complete digital solution for business meetings with the Middle East launch of a new business projector series. The EB-1410Wi and EB-1400Wi, unveiled during Epson’s participation at the 2012 GITEX Technology Week Dubai, combine the benefits of projectors, interactive whiteboards, flipcharts and other presentation equipment in one easy-to-use device. Delivering a 100-inch interactive projected image, and providing a wide variety of input sources, these models help businesses increase productivity and cut installation costs, by eliminating the need for multiple pieces of meeting room equipment.
The advanced features of these models allow users to turn any surface into a 100-inch interactive screen and annotate on any projected image from a variety of input sources: computers, office networks, USB memory sticks, visualisers and many other smart devices. With the interactive pens provided, users can fully interact with computer software – in the same way they would with a mouse – and also annotate meeting notes. Once meetings have finished, notes can be saved and shared to office networks and USB memory sticks2, in addition to being sent to other users by email.
These projectors can also be connected to Epson all-in-one business inkjet printers, such as the WorkForcePro 4500 Series. Users can scan documents directly to the projector and print out meeting notes. The majority of businesses’ existing printer fleets can also be connected for note printing.
The EB-1410Wi and EB-1400Wi also feature a multi-location function. This allows up to four separate projection systems to be connected remotely, so users can share images and presentations, and also annotate the same image remotely.
Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, says: “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 of 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.”
