As the world’s number one projector manufacturer since 2001, Epson plays a significant role in the provision of high-quality visual technology into many sectors. 

Higher Education is of particular importance, as projectors are used for their value and flexibility throughout a wide range of teaching spaces, from tutorial and seminar rooms, right up to the largest lecture theatres, and increasingly for leisure and signage on campus. Epson’s self-developed 3LCD technology ensures accurate and bright content that is visible to all users, so long as it is correctly specified and installed. That is why Epson works closely with both integrators and Higher Education customers directly to provide support and guidance ahead of any projects, so building connections with the relevant AV users and specifiers is essential. Epson have been a long-term supporter of SCHOMS, and always appreciate the chance to meet with the user group to showcase new product developments that can improve image quality, reliability or ease of use on campus.

Epson’s product offering is comprehensive – from LightScene digital signage projectors all the way through to 30,000 lumen workhorses. The greatest buzz right now is around products 6,000 lumens and above, where the UK & Ireland market grew 30% to reach record levels in FY22, aided by the benefits of laser light source technology. Epson are the number one manufacturer in this segment, supplying 35% of projectors in FY22. This includes compact fixed lens products up to 7,000 lumens, as well as a thorough line-up of interchangeable lens projectors ranging from 6,000 to 30,000 lumens. The EB-PU2120W – packing 20,000 lumens into a 25kg chassis – has been a real gamechanger.

Products around 5,000 lumens also remain extremely popular, and new for FY23 is the EB-810E. This super short throw model offers a remarkable throw ratio of just 0.16:1 and is suitable for image sizes up to 160” diagonal, offering unbeatable value versus alternative display technologies. To maximise visual impact in well-lit areas, Epson recommend pairing with an ambient light rejecting (ALR) screen surface, either in a standard 16:9 widescreen format, or switching to 21:9 output to support more immersive viewing requirements, such as MTR set-ups. With a modern appearance and such little space required, the EB-810E can even be mounted below the screen surface or integrated within furniture, for a truly modern finish. Epson UK are proud to partner with Greg Jeffreys at VDL to provide complete solutions for such environments.
