EPSON Debuts Another K-12 Projector

 To address K-12 schools’ needs for interactive whiteboard projection solutions, Epson last week introduced the PowerLite 410W short throw, widescreen projector. An upgrade to the PowerLite 400W – the industry’s first short throw, widescreen 3LCD projector – the PowerLite 410W offers native WXGA resolution (1280×800) for use with widescreen computers and 16:10 interactive whiteboards, and additional enhancements including a shorter throw lens, increased brightness and an optional wall mount for added flexibility.

Featuring a shorter throw lens than the previous model, the PowerLite 410W projects a 60 inch 16:10 image from two feet away, making it ideal for wall mounting. This improved design gives more space to students and teachers in smaller classrooms, while reducing accidental shadows from presenters.

The $1300 projector is specified at 2000 ANSI Lumens.  The new 410W is so new that EPSON hasn’t even put it on their website yet.  But, when they do, it will be here.
Ahh, yes, a native 16:10 projector for a 16:10 interactive whiteboard; it’s a match!  Perhaps you read my November ’08 column on 16:9?  But, you might have missed the follow-up on rAVe Talk of the Nations when I was taken to task that 16:10 is perhaps a better choice?  –GB
