Is this interactive projector the future of presenting?
At the end of last year we wrote a post about how touchless technology could soon be making its way into our homes, and how the humble remote could soon become outdated.
While we might soon be set to welcome motion-sensing and touchscreen devices into the home, what about into the office and even the classroom? There’s no denying that modern children have been raised on a diet of the most advanced technology, and have come to expect it in all areas of their lives.
Educational institutions have been quick to debate the merits of the use of advanced technology in the learning environments of youngsters, some at pre-school level. Many schools are trialling the use of iPads for teachers and pupils alike, but for the more traditional the interactive whiteboard is remarkably commonplace.
While both these devices are decidedly cumbersome, a discreet option such a projector could be perfect to increase the interactivity of your classroom. Enter the Epson EB 485Wi projector, a compact, cost-effective way of bringing the digital offering to teaching.
With wireless, PC-free connectivity, automatic calibration and driverless installation it’s easier to use than ever before; there’s no set-up needed, start-up time is almost instantaneous and the image is calibrated instantly. The device can be mounted on the ceiling, a desk or even on the side of a desk, projecting any image at any angle and making any surface interactive.
With a fully interactive projected screen of up to 100 inches and a high quality output thanks to its equally high White and Colour Light outputs, and its HDMI input. With an average lamp life of 4,000 hours it’s durable and excellent value.
The package contains the projector, its wall mount and two digital pens. While previous models have come with only one pen, this model allows for joint interactivity with the projection, plus improved responsiveness from the pens thanks to a ‘hover’ function, which detects the pen’s position even if it’s not in contact with the interactive surface.
For the office or for the classroom, this new projector from Epson is the perfect product to enhance the interactivity of everyday work. It’s currently available in our shop.
