Epson projectors have been used at the University of the Sunshine Coast's (USC) new AU$33 million (£17.2 million) Learning and Teaching Hub in Queensland.

The company's products have been selected for both the Immerse studio and the Engage Research Lab at the new facility.

InDesign Technologies was enlisted by USC for the project and they in turn specified Epson G Series multimedia projectors as the best devices for the job.

Managing director of InDesign Technologies Peter Coman said: "We have been working with USC for a few years designing many technology rich teaching spaces throughout the University, developing audio visual standards and specifying the best equipment for each project.

"Both the Immerse and Engage spaces presented real innovations in terms of audiovisual switching and projection."

Epson G Series EB-G6550WUNL projectors have been used in the Engage area at USC, with Mr Coman explaining that they were selected because they have short throw lenses. The devices boast full HD projection and cast few shadows, while they also reduce glare, significantly improving the learning experience.

For the Immerse studio at USC, the Epson G Series EB-G6900WUNL proved to be the right choice as it had all the same features as its rivals at a much lower price point.

Mr Coman stated that three pairs of edge blended G6900WU projectors have been paired up with a PC with a six-headed graphics card and custom steel structural support beams for the area's system, which has an aspect ratio of 90:10 and a huge projection area with a resolution of 10548x1200.
