Epson gets judged on Projector Runway, launch of new products at stake
Epson Ultra-Portable EB-1700 series (EB-1750 / EB-1760W / EB-1770W / EB-1775W)
Touted as the world’s slimmest yet high-performance 3LCD projectors, the EB-1700 series of projectors weigh a mere 1.7kg and feature 44mm height or approximately half that of a credit card. But just as how one should never judge a book by its cover, the EB-1700 series of projectors are anything but watered-down versions of full-sized projectors. In addition to being small enough to fit in a notebook bag, Epson claims that the projectors are capable of brightness of up to 3,000 lumens white and Colour Light Output (CLO). Select versions even offer extra features such as wireless connectivity, instant shut down and automatic keystone correction.
In addition, the EB-G5000 series of projectors sport Epson’s proprietary C2Fine technology typically found in its home theatre projectors; this helps to increase the projector’s contrast ratio by minimizing polarized light leakages. And to top off the package, the EB-G5000 series of projectors support split screen output, which allows for the display of up to four connected sources at any one time.
