LONG BEACH, Calif. – Dec. 13, 2016 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced the PowerLite® 975W projector – Epson's first classroom projector to offer up to a 10,000-hour lamp life in Bright Mode1. Featuring 3,600 lumens of color brightness and 3,600 lumens of white brightness2 and WXGA resolution, the new projector delivers vivid, widescreen images, even in well-lit classrooms. It also offers enterprise-level security via an included wireless module, and teachers can wirelessly share content simultaneously from multiple devices, providing a classroom experience that is brighter and more connected.
“Technology has enabled a new breed of teaching strategies, and Epson is focused on developing cutting-edge display products that maximize image quality while minimizing maintenance and down time so teachers and students can focus on learning” said Veronika Knight, product manager, Projectors, Epson America Inc. “The PowerLite 975W introduces the latest advancements in education technology with features such as ultra-brightness for good quality display images, long lamp life in Bright Mode for minimized maintenance, wireless connection for easy projection, and screen mirroring capabilities for classroom collaboration.”
