Meet the Needs of Students with Advanced Projection Technologies

Technology can make a huge difference in the classroom. Did you know that more than half of students can’t read from a typical 70” flat panel? Today’s display solutions can make a difference. Check out some of the Bright Future projector models:

1. Classroom Series Projectors

The Brighter Futures Classroom Series includes both lamp and laser projectors with a range of features and pricing to meet any classroom’s needs. The BrightLink series brings the latest and most advanced interactive, HD displays to classroom projectors, while the PowerLite series offers a huge variety of solutions and price points.

Projectors range from 1,000 to 4,999 lumens, come in fixed and mobile models, and offer a wide range of inputs and interfaces. Built-in and wireless-compatible connectivity features mean that you will have faster, easier access to your visual content, and plug-and-play features mean you can get straight to work without lengthy installation processes.

2. Large Venue Projectors

Schools and educational institutions need display solutions to fit a huge variety of spaces, both large and small. Epson’s Brighter Futures program includes projectors designed for:

  • Auditoriums
  • Gymnasiums
  • Large lecture halls

These projectors feature brightness of up to 15,000+ lumens, optional speaker or lens adapters, dual-lamp designs, and more.

3. Short Throw and Ultra Short-Throw Projectors

Epson manufactures projectors to meet the other end other the size spectrum as well. The Brighter Future’s short and ultra short-throw projectors can display crystal-clear projections from 100” up to just 11” away. Optional wireless connectivity features and all-digital HDMI audio and video connections mean less time doing set-up and more time on curriculum.

4. Interactive Projectors

What if your classroom projector could offer all the features of an interactive whiteboard? With the Epson BrightLink interactive projectors, almost any flat and lightly-colored surface can become an interactive display. These projectors feature both pen-based and finger-touch interactivity, meaning students can walk right up to the projection and create shareable content.

On top of the variety of projectors available in the Brighter Futures program, educators can also take advantage of a 3-year limited warranty on projectors. These warranties can include up to 90-day protection for projection lamps, next-day and free-shipping replacement services, and comprehensive device support.

Interactive Projectors – What’s the Difference?

Interactive projectors can meet the needs of schools in unique and powerful ways. Not only do these display devices offer in-classroom teaching benefits for educators and students, but they can also help schools save money and energy.

For example, it can be challenging to maintain and implement multiple new technologies at once, such as wireless projectors and interactive “Smart” whiteboards. However, with interactive projectors, these technologies are combined together into a single device, eliminating the need for simultaneous management of multiple new technologies.

Epson’s BrightLink interactive projectors are industry favorites by both brand and features. Some of the benefits of these projectors include:

  • Saving, emailing, and posting notes added to projections online
  • Multi-user support for two pens and up to 6 finger-touch users at once
  • Wireless sharing to up to 50 devices simultaneously
  • Display from computers, or computer-free through Android, iPads, Blu-Ray, and other devices
  • Network projection to any connected device
  • Remote monitoring of device statuses, on/off controls, and more
