Epson innovates the meeting room with business projection

Instant interactivity alongside bright, sharp and ultra-short throw images

Visitors at this year’s GITEX will find out find out how the Epson EB-1430Wi, with whiteboard functionality and finger-touch interactivity, can help you impress customers and clients.

Jason Whiley, director of sales, Epson Middle East, says: “Since Epson’s introduction of finger-touch technology, teachers and students have been able to collaborate using either their fingers or the interactive pens to underline or write onto any image, slide, graph and even video. Finger-touch is great for collaboration and brain-storming sessions, so we brought it to boardrooms and meeting rooms in an ultra-short throw projector..”

The EB-1430Wi brings ultra-short throw projection to meeting rooms, as well as dual pen interactivity. The new whiteboard sharing mode allows meeting participants to view and annotate whiteboard content from a range of smart devices, without the need for any special application. Multi-location image annotation makes it even easier to collaborate during meetings between different offices. Included with the EB-1430Wi is EasyMP software for network monitoring, network projection and multi-PC projection, as well as Epson’s iProjection app1 for touchscreen devices to easily share and display content. With 3,300 lumens brightness and WXGA resolution, the EB-1430Wi has two HDMI inputs, built-in 16W speakers and two interactive pens.

The EB-1430Wi adds finger-touch interactivity. Finger-touch is all about instant interactivity using natural gestures, and it’s perfect for quickly emphasising a point. A precise technology that’s simple to set-up and easy to use, finger-touch complements the use of interactive pens. It works by using a laser curtain over the projected image that detects interruption by one or more fingers.
