Epson®, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, was honored by the Campus Technology and THE Journal 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards. Both programs ask readers to nominate and vote for their favorite educational tools and technology for the higher education and K-12 classrooms respectively. This year, Epson won four Readers’ Choice Awards, two from each publication. Campus Technology and THE Journal both awarded Epson a Platinum Readers’ Choice Award, the highest honor, for its Favorite Projector category.
Campus Technology readers also awarded Epson a Gold Readers’ Choice Award for Favorite Interactive Whiteboard, Display, and Flat Panel for Epson’s line of BrightLink® interactive ultra short-throw presentation displays. Epson launched the BrightLink 685Wi, 695Wi, 696Ui, and 697Ui in January. These enhanced displays enable individualized instruction with wireless content sharing1 and deliver a bright, readable, interactive image up to 100-inches. In June, Epson launched the world’s first 3LCD ultra-short throw interactive laser display, the BrightLink 710Ui. This newest BrightLink delivers a large, bright, 100-inch image, laser technology providing up to 20,000 hours2 of virtually maintenance-free operation, and Instant Off® technology.
THE Journal readers also awarded Epson a Gold Readers’ Choice Award for Favorite Document Camera. The Epson DC-21 high-definition document camera delivers astounding clarity and color with HD 1080p resolution and a large imaging sensor, and extraordinary close-up detail with 12x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. The DC-21 also offers HDMI®connectivity for high-definition video, a microscope adapter for sharing magnified images, and a built-in microphone, and the camera rotates 90 degrees vertically and horizontally so educators can use it as a webcam to record lessons. Educators can also use the Split Screen function to display live and captured images side-by-side. In August, Epson announced the expansion of their document camera line to include two new portable document cameras – the DC-07 and the DC-13.
“Epson understands both K-12 and higher education classrooms are changing, and we’re committed to creating innovative hardware and collaboration tools that meet educators and students’ changing needs,” said Jason Meyer, education product manager, Epson America, Inc. “Recognition from these two Readers’ Choice Awards programs reinforces our strong belief that presentation displays and document cameras will remain an integral part of classroom instruction.”
As a leader in innovation and partnership, Epson also offers the Brighter Futures®program, a unique sales and support initiative available specifically for schools. Designed to help educators select and implement the best products for their classrooms while making the most of their budgets, Brighter Futures offers special pricing, extended Epson limited warranty coverage for a total of three years, dedicated education account managers, and toll-free technical support for all Epson projectors and associated accessories.
