Epson has added two new low-cost projectors to its range, the PowerLite 1880 and the PowerLite 1850W.

The devices are designed to be portable but still offer a good level of brightness for use in business or higher education situations. The 1880 model is slightly more expensive but offers 4,000 lumens in comparison to the 1850W’s 3,700 lumens. However, the latter also allows for WXGA resolution, permitting the device to function with widescreen devices.

Both projectors are equipped with flexible setup features, which work to make installation simpler. An HDMI digital connection, USB Plug 'n' Play feature and PC-free slideshows also help to boost the functionality of the projectors.

Sean Gunduz, product manager at Epson America, commented, “We have found that cost conscious corporate and higher education users are looking for ultra bright projectors, but don't want to spend thousands of dollars for them.

“The PowerLite 1880 and 1850W meet the needs of these customers by delivering brightness, high image quality and an array of advanced features at an affordable price."

Meanwhile, lamplife lasts up to 4,000 hours thanks to Epson’s exclusive E-TORL projector lamp technology.
