Epson launches new 4,000 ANSI lumens, network compatible desktop projector
The Epson EMP-7900NL is a powerful XGA projector, designed for conference room usage where networking is fast becoming an essential requirement. This projector is targeted at professionals requiring a desktop projector with high brightness (4,000 ANSI lumens) and convenient features, such as networking and security.
October 2004 - The Epson EMP-7900NL LCD projector provides high-quality images, flexibility and ease-of-use for the business environment. It produces 4,000 ANSI lumens, has a true XGA native resolution (1024 x 768) and contrast ratio of 700:1 for rich video projection.
The Epson EMP-7900NL is equipped with Epson's EasyMP function so that it offers network control. The network user can check and control several aspects of the projector, for example switching sources or turning all projectors off at the end of each day. IP addressability makes communication and networkability simple, whilst servicing and maintainance planning are made more efficient through the facility to email alerts to a network supervisor. These will notify the supervisor of service requirements such as expiry of lamp life or fan alerts.
For improved running costs, an eco mode has been included and delivers 3,000 hours lamp life. It is quiet too, with an operation noise of 33dB.
For enhanced customer choice, lenses for the EMP-7900NL are ordered separately to meet customers specific needs. There are three options available - short throw, mid throw and long throw.
The Epson EMP-7900NL is easy to set up in a variety of environments. The Epson QuickCorner function provides advanced horizontal and vertical keystone correction, creating a square image quickly and easily.
Where a projector screen is not available, image quality is enhanced by the Epson Wall Shot function. When an image is projected onto a wall, the projector will detect the quality of the image that is on display. If the wall is not white, this can affect the quality of the image. The EMP-7900NL will adjust the image quality accordingly to provide a clearer image that reflects the image-quality you would expect to receive if projected onto a white background.
The Epson EMP-7900NL can also be used as a portable device and therefore includes important security features like a password function to protect the projector from theft and prevent unauthorised operation or access.
The EMP-7900NL includes a back-lit remote control with a joystick for ease of use. Its user friendly design provides easy access to all major functions at the touch of a button.
As a leading developer and manufaturer of Liquid Crystal Displays, all Epson projectors feature Epson 3LCD advanced imaging technology. The EMP-7900NL is no exception. Research by market experts Decision Tree Consulting for FY2003 shows that LCD projectors account for over 69% of global projector sales. The 3 LCD panels create varying shades of red, green and blue that blend to produce a projected image with brighter, richer, truer colours and sharp black text.
"By launching the Epson EMP-7900NL we are presenting an attractive, high brightness, robust, compact business desktop projector with comprehensive connectivity," says Neil Hartigan, Sales and Marketing Manager, Business Products.
