• University of St Andrews uses Epson to enhance psychology and neuroscience experiments

        • The University of St Andrews has installed an Epson EB-L1100U 3LCD laser projector to enhance social and scientific experiments at its School of Psychology and Neuroscience.

          The installation of the projector in the University’s Clare Cassidy Social Immersion Laboratory will help create a more immersive experience for participants in social experiments, creating a more engaging environment for researchers to monitor responses to stimuli.

          Neil Colquhoun, Business Director for Visual Instruments at Epson Europe said, “working with Component AV on the installation and helping the University of St Andrews to utilise technology for its research projects is incredibly rewarding, especially given the environmental challenges that needed to be overcome with this installation.

          “The Epson EB-L1100U is a best in class 3LCD laser projector. This installation demonstrates the University’s commitment to using world-leading technology to produce the best possible educational and research results.”

          Research has shown that psychological studies are more powerful when participants view an experimental stimulus on a large screen rather than computer monitors. Installed at the University by AV experts Component AV, the Epson EB-L1100U’s high definition picture and ultra-short throw zero-offset lens creates a captivating viewing experience and has overcome environmental challenges.

          Dr Fergus Neville, one of the researchers working on the research projects utilising the new projector added, “the Clare Cassidy Social Immersion Laboratory is designed to provide participants with an immersive experience of stimuli, but previously participants couldn’t get close to the screen without casting a shadow or seeing a pixelated image. Thanks to the EB-L1100U’s high-resolution and Epson’s new ultra-short throw lens, these issues have been resolved."
