These latest products are designed to meet needs in both the business and education settings, providing companies and schools with higher quality video conferencing devices or tools for learning.

The projectors also have a brightness display range of 4,000 to 4,600 lumens, so meetings or lessons can be easily projected across common backdrops or blank surfaces under different lighting environments, without the need to prepare a display area for projector use.

All products use Epson’s laser light technology, for up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use so companies can utilize the projectors’ life for a long time.
