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.

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.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
