Epson America Inc. has introduced a new digital projector aimed at business and entertainment applications called the PowerLite S1+. The new projector sports a price tag of US$999.
Features on the PowerLite S1+ include 1,400 ANSI-lumens of brightness, SVGA (800×600 pixel) resolution and a constrast ratio of 500:1. The seven-pound projector uses three 0.5-inch LCDs to project images, and features a lamp that is rated at 2,000 hours and costs $199 to replace.
The PowerLite S1+ sports component, composite, and S-Video inputs, along with an analog monitor input. It also has an analog monitor output, useful for educators or presenters who want to view what’s going on on-screen without looking up at the projected image.
The PowerLite S1+ also features several pre-programmed color modes that improve the quality of images from various sources, such as playing video games or movies, or projecting for brightly-lit spaces. And the new projector powers up and begins projecting in about six seconds.
Look for the PowerLite S1+ to hit stores in April.
