Epson is using what is being called the ultimate screensaver to show of the capabilities of its most impressive projectors.

The market-leading brand is streaming the first ever Full HD live broadcast from the floor of the Red Sea, which is known for its brightly-coloured biodiversity and impressive scuba diving sites.

The company is using the under-sea streaming in direct reference to the long-used images of fish that have been seen on screensavers across the globe since the early days of home computing.

Epson has admitted that the images are more to demonstrate the picture clarity and colour scale on offer through its projectors, rather than to prevent screen burn.

David Pilsof, producer of the Epson Red Sea event, held in Eilat, Israel, said, "This exhibit and Full HD live broadcast is a unique opportunity to bring images of the stunning Red Sea to a wider audience.

"Sharp and colourful images, created using high-quality Epson projectors, and exciting underwater events will delight visitors and give them an impression of the beauty of underwater nature."

He said they were very pleased to be working with Epson, which has a long history of taking part in conservation projects in the Red Sea.
