Epson has launched two new low-cost projectors, the VS410 and the VS350W, expanding its existing high-brightness range.

The VS410 provides 4,000 Lumens of colour and white light output and offers XGA resolution, while the VS350W delivers 3,500 Lumens with WXGA (1280x800) resolution. The latter is designed for users who are looking for a projector that is compatible with widescreen notebooks and high-definition content.

However, both projectors come with ample connectivity options, including USB Plug 'n Play for instant projection from a PC or Mac. Meanwhile the Direct Power On and Off kicks in instantly, without the user having to wait around for the machine to power down.

Jason Meyer, product manager for Epson America, commented on the launches: “These new VS-series high-brightness projectors are designed to deliver proven performance, reliability and vibrant images without impacting the budget.

“The easy-to-use Epson VS410 and VS350W offer the perfect option for businesses looking for cost-effective projectors with basic functionality and the versatility for use in all lighting conditions.”

The projectors feature the latest 3LCD, three-chip technology, allowing them to deliver “vibrant images, true-to-life colour and detail”. The technology also helps improve the energy-efficiency of the light engine; in comparison to one-chip DLP technology, 3LCD requires around 25 per cent less electricity per Lumen of brightness.
