Epson's latest intuitive ultra-short-throw interactive teaching solution, the EB-696Ui is designed to encourage teaching collaboration, deliver advanced connectivity, and great results.
With optional wireless connectivity and an enhanced moderator function, it's easy to inspire and engage students with highly-detailed images presented in Full HD resolution.
Paul Wilson, business manager, Epson UK, says: "This high-end, ultra short-throw projector uses the latest technology to allow sharing and impressive interactivity, with a scalable display size of up to 100 inches, something that flat-panel displays just can't economically offer.
A long lamp life of up to 10,000 hours in eco mode reduces maintenance levels. Finger-touch and dual-pen interactivity make it easy for students to join in by directly writing or drawing on projected images. Alternatively, EasyMP Multi-PC Projection software's enhanced moderator function means teachers can easily display the content they want from up to 50 student devices, providing even more opportunities for sharing content between teachers and students."
The Epson iProjection App makes it easy for students to share content. It's available for iOS and Android devices, and now Google Chromebooks. Intuitive PC-free annotation functions are expanded by enhanced control and annotation toolbars, including the addition of print and save functions, that can be accessed through the new home screen. Also featured are split-screen capabilities, the ability to control a visualiser directly from the EB-696Ui, a built-in 16W speaker and microphone input. Ultra-wide multiscreen interactive surfaces can be created by placing two EB-696Ui side-by-side.
The EB-696Ui is also joined by six further models in the range; the EB-695Wi, EB-685Wi, EB-675Wi, EB-685W, EB-675W and EB-670. All are built around 3LCD technology to produce bright, vibrant images up to 100 inches in size with a contrast ratio up to 16,000:1.
All models have three HDMI inputs to allow educators to easily connect multiple devices, including PCs, DVD and Blu-ray players, streaming dongles and visualisers. SMART Notebook software is also included with all models – a familiar educational package, purpose built for interactive displays.
