Epson today introduced two 3D projector solutions designed for classrooms – the PowerLite® W16 (opens in new tab) and W16SK (opens in new tab). Epson is offering two 3D projection choices – one based on active 3D technology and the other on passive 3D technology – which both allow 3D content to be viewed in typical, well-lit classroom settings. The PowerLite W16 and W16SK will be shown at the Epson booth (#709) at FETC in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 28-31, 2013.
The PowerLite W16 and W16SK deliver WXGA widescreen resolution and support multiple HDMI 3D formats out of the box, with no external converter box required.
The PowerLite W16 also offers a 2D visual experience with 3,000 lumens of color brightness and 3,000 lumens of white light output5. The PowerLite W16 requires minimal set-up with automatic vertical and horizontal keystone correction, 3-in-1 USB Plug ‘n Play and the option to install or remain as a portable projector.
The PowerLite W16SK dual projection system is a stacked projector kit made specifically for education. This affordable 3D solution includes two projectors, polarizing lenses and a stack mount to deliver ultra-bright passive 3D projection. The PowerLite W16SK uses inexpensive passive 3D glasses, priced at $3 a pair and sold as a box of five pairs. It delivers up to 6,000 lumens of color brightness and 6,000 lumens of white light output5 in 2D mode when stacked, making them bright enough for well-lit classrooms.
