Epson America Inc. has introduced two new digital projectors — the PowerLite 750c and PowerLite 755c. Both are shipping now for US$1,499 and $1,699 respectively.
Both projectors feature native 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution, 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and compact size and weight: 7.6 x 10.9 x 2.7 inches, weighing 3.8 and 3.9 pounds, respectively. They also feature “Instant Off,” a technology that lets users unplug their projectors as soon as they’re turned off without having to wait for a cool down period first. They also feature 1.2x optical zoom lens, 30-degree automatic keystone correct and seven-second warmup. You also have control over red, green and blue color channels and can choose among individual Kelvin settings. They connect to a Mac or PC using a 15-pin Dsub connector, as an analog display.
The PowerLite 755c can work without a computer connected, either using 802.11g wireless networking technology using built-in PCMCIA and USB slots, and can work with USB memory sticks, external hard drives or digital cameras. The 755c features built-in software that lets users display JPEG images and MPEG-2 videos. Epson said the PowerLite 755c is compatible with Apple’s own Keynote software, running on a host Mac operating Mac OS X v10.3 or later, and is compatible with LEAP authentication and WEP/WPA security.
