Display size and interactivity matter in a teaching environment, and Epson's new laser EB-710Ui addresses them both with ultra-bright 100-inch Full HD images, dual-pen and finger-touch interactivity, and a suite of collaboration and sharing tools to make engaging lessons easier.
The iProjection app, which comes included, is compatible with Windows 10, Mac, Android, iOS and Chromebook, allowing students to use their own devices in the classroom, something that is increasingly essential. The EB-710Ui is supplied with a 5 year / 12,000 hour warranty covering the projector and light source, delivering maintenance-free operation for maximum peace of mind.
Paul Wilson, business manager Visual Instruments, Epson UK, says: "The EB-710Ui is the first laser WUXGA ultra-short throw interactive display for education. It produces a scalable image up to 100 inches that far surpasses flat panels, whose size just doesn't represent good value. Its images are interactive and shareable, with dual-pen and finger-touch interactivity so students can join in by directly annotating on the projected image. This is even true when you combine two displays together to create a huge, wide interactive collaboration surface that encourages participation. The EB-710Ui's laser-light technology is also a lesson in easy maintenance, removing the potential costs and downtime traditionally associated with lamp-based projectors."
Epson's iProjection app is all about embracing personal devices in the classroom. A free download for iOS, Android, Windows 10, Mac and now Chromebook, iProjection allows students to display content from their own phone, tablet or laptop wirelessly. Educators can stay in control with Epson's simple Moderator function, enabling them to show content from single or multiple students when required.
At its core the EB-710Ui uses Epson's 3LCD technology and its laser light source for clear, crisp and bright Full HD images. The EB-710Ui projects 4,000 lumens of Colour Light Output (CLO), which make its images ultra-bright and easily viewable in ambient light conditions.
Epson's own Easy Interactive Tools software comes included with the product, offering the commonly used interactive functions, such as annotation, shapes and highlighting, whilst also offering easy integration with Epson classroom visualisers. A one-year SMART Notebook software classroom licence is also included on redemption.
The EB-710Ui is available from November 2017, priced at £3,032.16 RRP ex.VAT.
