Global projector brand Epson earlier this month introduced the EX5230 Pro, its first EX-Series retail projector with high brightness designed for large meeting rooms with ambient light. The EX5230 Pro, with an estimated street price of $599, delivers XGA resolution, 3,500 lumens of color light output and 3,500 lumens of white light output, and a suite of custom features that enable flexible positioning and easy setup, the company said.
"The EX5230 Pro is our highest lumen EX-Series projector to date, designed to project a bright image in a large meeting room or training room with ambient light," Brian Savarese, product manager for Epson America Inc., said in the announcement. "Delivering an advanced set of features, including HDMI connectivity, optional wireless and Epson's simple setup suite, the EX5230 ensures engaging presentations with sharp detail."
The EX5230 offers Epson's simple setup suite for flexible positioning and rapid setup, including:
- Image adjustments: Easy lens zoom and control, automatic vertical keystone correction and a horizontal easy-slide control bar for enhanced image correction, allowing for a rectangular image from almost any angle.
- USB plug and play: Instantly project video and audio from a Windows PC or Mac computer via a USB connection.
- HDMI connectivity: High-quality audio and video content with one cable.
- Optional wireless connectivity: Connect directly to a computer, smartphone or tablet with an optional wireless LAN module; free Epson iProjection app allows users to project wirelessly from most iOS Apple devices running iOS 4.2 or later and most Android devices running Android 2.3 or later.
All Epson projectors feature the latest 3LCD, three-chip technology that provides an energy-efficient light engine that uses less electricity than one-chip DLP technology, the company said.
