A school in Christchurch has fitted its classrooms with Epson projectors following the 2011 earthquakes which destroyed 80 per cent of its buildings.

St Margaret's College chose the Epson EB-485Wi and EB-585Wi interactive ultra-short throw projectors after evaluating all the current models on the market.

Blake Richardson, technical systems manager at St Margaret's College, said the school required upgrades because of the huge damage to buildings following the earthquake.

The school had previously had a mix of new and old projectors from various manufacturers, but Mr Richardson wanted their redeveloped campus to offer projectors of the same brand.

As projectors were to be used in every learning space, it was also essential that they offered a bright and clear image.

Mr Richardson and his team chose the EB-485Wi and EB-585Wi - both of which are reliable interactive projectors packed with innovative interactive features.

He explained: “We were particularly impressed with the high quality of the image and the low cost of replacement lamps for both EB-485Wi and the EB-585Wi projectors.

We also really liked the fact that these projectors allowed us to do away with our Activboards and give each classroom the same features.”

The EB-595Wi projector is Epson’s flagship interactive model, and is the world's first 3LCD, finger touch-enabled interactive projector.
