• Epson announces new research on display size for classrooms

        • Epson has announced new findings by Radius Global Market Research, that evaluated the readability of content displayed on 70-inch screens in average-sized classrooms in United Kingdom. According to the survey, more than 50 per cent of students found that content displayed on 70-inch screens was difficult to read, with more than half of students writing down at least one item incorrectly from a 70-inch screen.

          119 students in the UK, ages 12 to 22, were divided into groups of approximately 30. The students were asked to read typical educational content including charts and text-based information displayed on a top-selling 70-inch flat panel in a traditional 8.3 meters by 8.4 meters classroom, and then write down six short items of information based on what they saw.

          The research findings support the 4/6/8 rule for display size recommendations. This rule is a long-standing informal guideline commonly used by AV integrators and installers for determining the appropriate sized displays for different environments including classrooms, conference rooms and large venues.

          Paul Wilson, Business Manager, Visual Instruments for Epson UK said, "when it comes to choosing the best display for your classroom, it is important that it's large enough so every student in the room can clearly read what's on it. This is absolutely critical to each student's success. Epson’s range of projectors offer advanced interactive display and projector technologies to make bright, colourful, collaborative learning environments a reality."

          The research findings are revealed as Epson announces its latest generation of ultra-short -throw laser projectors designed to enhance the quality of educational learning. The new Epson EB-710Ui laser ultra-short throw projector that will be rolled out worldwide from the end of October, can provide better visibility in the classroom for images in large sizes of up to 100 inches. In addition to the large display size, the EB-710Ui boasts 4,000 lumens in brightness and WUXGA resolution.
