LONG BEACH, Calif., June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In an age of new learning, Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide,1 today announced eight new laser display models for educators – the interactive BrightLink® 735Fi and 725Wi and non-interactive PowerLite® 725W, 720, L200SW, L200SX, L200W, and L200X. Educators are quickly adapting to new, untraditional forms of teaching and are looking for different ways to captivate and inspire students. Offering long-throw, short-throw, ultra short-throw and interactive models, the new displays support a variety of teaching environments. Equipped with a virtually maintenance-free laser light source,2 they deliver big, bright images, which is crucial while teaching more spread out classes in the new social distancing classrooms.
"While we still don't know exactly what next year's classrooms will look like, we do know that there is no way to replace a good teacher," said Mark Hess, executive director for instruction, technology and assessment, Walled Lake Consolidated School District. "Bright, engaging content is more important than ever as our teachers help students learn, whether they are in the classroom or learning from home. Epson is continually innovating to meet the needs of educators and that is why we have chosen their display technology for our teachers."
Epson's new flexible laser display solutions are optimized for schools, helping boost student engagement, collaboration and creativity. A major advantage when compared to traditional flat panels is that educators get valuable whiteboard space back when the projector is turned off. Different from other classroom display technology, the BrightLink 735Fi offers ultra-wide 110-inch, 16:6 images supporting split screen and side-by-side viewing from multiple sources. Educators can present multiple streams and whiteboard displays simultaneously for enhanced content sharing and collaboration.
"Always keeping teachers and students in mind, we continue to deliver high-quality solutions that allow teachers to connect with and inspire their students," said Tom Piche, product manager, projectors, Epson America, Inc. "In today's classrooms, it's important for teachers to have these large and reliable displays to accommodate more spread out, social distanced classes."
Epson's latest offerings also include non-interactive PowerLite models to pair with pre-installed interactive whiteboards for classrooms in need of long-throw solutions. Additional features on the new BrightLink and PowerLite models include:
- Flexible image sizes – The BrightLink 735Fi projects Full HD content, ultra-wide 110-inch, 16:6 images or 100-inch, 16:9 images, offering up to 77 percent more viewing area than 75-inch flat panels
