• Epson introduces new interactive and collaborative teaching solution

        • Epson’s has unveiled its latest intuitive ultra-short-throw projector, the EB-696Ui, designed to encourage teaching collaboration. With optional wireless connectivity and an enhanced moderator function, it looks to inspire and engage students with images presented in Full HD resolution.

          The Epson iProjection App is available for iOS and Android devices, and now Google Chromebooks, and is designed for students to share content. 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.

          Paul Wilson, Business Manager, Epson UK said, “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 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 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 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.

          The EB-670, EB-675W, EB-685W, EB-675Wi, EB-685Wi, EB-695Wi and EB-696Ui are available now, priced from £1,145 to £2,421 (RRP ex. VAT). Epson is going to be showcasing its latest interactive and collaborative teaching solutions at BETT on stand D270.
