Epson Introduces Bright, Value-Priced Projectors for Small Businesses

Epson VS220 and VS320 Deliver High-Definition Performance with 2,700 Lumens HDMI Connectivity

LONG BEACH, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide1, today introduced new VS-series projector models, designed to provide small businesses with high-brightness at low costs. The VS220 ($359*) and VS320 ($429*) offer SVGA and XGA resolution respectively and deliver high performance with 2,700 lumens of color brightness and 2,700 lumens of white brightness2 and HDMI connectivity for high-quality audio and video with one cable.

"These new VS models break the mold for affordable business projectors," said Brian Savarese, product manager, Epson America, Inc. "Designed with budget conscious small businesses in mind, both the VS220 and VS320 deliver high-brightness along with HDMI connectivity to deliver compelling, high-impact presentations."

The VS220 and VS320 offer easy-to-use connectivity and control features, including USB Plug 'n Play for instantly projecting video and audio from a PC or Mac® computer via a USB connection, as well as automatic vertical keystone correction for easy image alignment and fast setup. The VS320 offers additional features, including a horizontal easy-slide control bar for enhanced image correction, allowing for a rectangular image from any angle, as well as an A/V Mute slide which stops the sound and picture to allow for a quick pause in the presentation.

The new VS models also feature Direct Power On and Off for wall switch power control and Instant Off® which instantly powers the projector on and off with no cool down time. Both models are lightweight and travel friendly for ease-of-use when on the road.

All Epson® projectors feature the latest 3LCD, 3-chip technology to deliver amazing, true-to-life color and detail for powerful presentations. 3LCD technology provides an energy-efficient and reliable light engine which uses available lamp light to create stunning images, and in contrast to 1-chip DLP technology, 3LCD requires, on average, 25 percent less electricity per lumen of brightness3.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance

The new color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society of Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today's high definition content, businesses require tools to display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness enables an even better image for larger screen sizes and on a larger variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. Whether projecting a presentation or spreadsheet, Epson's line of value-priced projectors deliver consistent color brightness and white brightness, allowing businesses to view bright content in nearly any environment.

Availability and Support

The Epson VS220 and VS320 are currently available through national resellers, mail order and distribution. Epson's projectors come with a standard one-year limited warranty that includes two elite technical support services - Epson PrivateLine® phone support with direct access to an expedited support telephone line via a phone card included with the product, and a Road Service projector replacement program that includes projector exchange in two business days with paid shipping.

1 Based upon Q3 2012 worldwide front projection market share estimates from Pacific Media Associates.
2 White and color light output will vary depending on mode selected. White light output measured using ISO 21118 standard.
3 Data source: ProjectorCentral.com Jan. 2012. Average of 1,122 shipping models for which the manufacturers provided lumens and total power data, all resolutions and brightness levels. Energy efficiency was measured as wattage per lumen. It was measured for both 3LCD and 1-chip projectors in each of five brightness segments. 3LCD projectors averaged less required electricity per lumen in each of the five segments.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
