Epson’s PowerLite® 97H projector, specifically designed for use in classrooms, was selected as a winner by a panel of judges in the award’s New Products category.
The Awards of Excellence programme, now in its 34th year, recognises both new and upgraded innovative software, hardware, network, app, and web products that have proven to be helpful tools in the education sector.
All products are rigorously tested against criteria of quality and effectiveness, ease of use, creative use of technology and suitability for use in an educational environment.
The PowerLite 97H has a lamp life up to 10,000 hours to help teachers engage with students, 2,700 lumens of colour brightness and 2,700 lumens of white brightness XGA resolution, two HDMI ports for enriched high definition viewing, a built-in 16-watt speaker and a microphone input.
Epson’s DC-21 document camera was also given an Award of Excellence from Tech and Learning.
“The judges reviewing the entries actually reviewed the DC-21 and the PowerLite 97H together,” said Jason Meyer, senior product manager for projectors at Epson America, Inc. “Coupling our best document camera with a one of our high-quality classroom projectors showed the judges how easy, yet powerful, this technology can be in the classroom.”
