Multimedia Management for Short Throw Projectors

Epson today announced the PowerLite® Pilot™ Connection and Control Box, which offers control of multimedia sources connected to Epson’s wall-mounted short throw and ultra-short throw classroom projectors. The PowerLite Pilot gives teachers one place to connect and manage audio and video sources such as computers, DVD players, iPods, and others.

In addition, Epson is offering two optional accessories – a wireless pendant microphone and powerful external speakers – designed to help provide an integrated classroom control and sound enhancement solution.

The various input/output connections available include: HDMI, two VGA (computer 1 and 2) connectors with corresponding Audio (inputs/outputs), S-Video with Audio (inputs/outputs), AUX Audio (for use with devices such as an iPod), USB Type A, USB Type B, and Record Out. The PowerLite Pilot also allows the selection of audio mute and volume adjustment for the optional speakers/microphone.
