Epson launches first portable laser projector
FYI, this story is more than a year old
Epson has launched its first portable laser projector.
Designed to be as flexible as possible for home users, in both usability and design the EF-100W and EF-100B are compact, measuring just 23cm along their longest edge.
The EF-100W/B makes Epson’s bright, vivid and long-lasting laser technology available in a compact and lightweight chassis, in either a black (EF-100B) or white (EF-100W) casing.
By using a laser light source and locating the vents and power inlet on the side, the engineers at Epson have developed a projector that is compact and can be placed to project in any direction.
This gives users flexibility as to what they can project onto such as a wall, ceiling or floor.
It also has the capability to project up to 150 inches - ideal for supersizing content.
Even in daylight, the laser light source delivers a bright and vibrant picture, so there’s no need to turn lights off, block windows or even use a screen.
Additionally, wonky and distorted images can be avoided by using the keystone auto picture adjustment feature.
Complementing its portable design, the EF-100W/B offers a swift and simple setup.
Users can launch the Welcome Guide to learn how to set up the projector and discover its key features.
Furthermore, the remote makes it easy to navigate the user-friendly interface.
Accessing content from a phone, tablet, DVD player, games console or laptop can be done by inserting a cable into the HDMI port.
Streaming devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast and Roku can be plugged in the back.
The plug and play design also incorporates flexible options for sound: built-in speakers, Bluetooth connectivity for sound bars or a headphone jack.
There’s also a sound mode to reflect the type of content being shown.
The EF-100W/B has been designed for style-conscious users.
The white EF-100W features silver accents while the black EF-100B has copper edging.
Both models feature rounded corners, minimal buttons and a tactile, leather-like finish.
Epson Australia MD Craig Heckenberg says, “The EF-100 is more than just stylish, portable and fun to use. It also offers great functionality for users with its compact size and long-lasting and high-quality laser light source.
“So whether you are watching a movie on the ceiling with your kids or enjoying widescreen adventures on the wall of any other room in your house, the EF-100 presents you with an excellent, affordable and creative display solution.”
The EF-100W/B is available now online and from all Epson retailers and resellers for an RRP of $1,699.
