Four new affordable projectors have been added to Epson's growing range of technology specifically designed for use in classrooms.

The four models are an expansion of the leading projector manufacturer's esteemed PowerLite range, and offer more robust speaker systems and increased brightness than their predecessors.

Epson America product manager, Sara Kim, explained that the projectors were part of the company's efforts to keep pace with the growing status of multimedia applications in modern classrooms.

"Epson continues to develop products that deliver high-quality images and sound to enhance students' learning experiences," she said. "This series of projectors brings an ideal blend of high performance features and future-ready connectivity to the classroom at a price point that won't hurt the bottom line."

The PowerLite 92 and 93 offer 2,400 lumens of brightness, while the 95 provides 2,600 lumens and the 96W provides 2,700 lumens of colour and white light output in a widescreen (1280 x 800) resolution. All three models have powerful 16-watt speakers that are capable of filling classrooms with sound and save on having to provide external speakers. The 95 and 96W models also have a microphone input to enhance any accompanying narrative for presentations or films.

All projectors feature HDMI digital connectivity, compatible with all the latest devices for high-quality video and digital audio and the 95 and 96W models also deliver wireless functionality via a wireless module.
