“Not Just For Corporates” says Epson
Known widely for its interactive and business projectors for corporate and education use, Epson realised that many of their loyal customers wanted the patented 3LCD technology to be available in higher forms of brightness as well. Hence, this sparked the birth of a series of high-brightness projectors that ranges between 4,000 and 11,000 lumens – to meet the needs of integrators and users who require high brightness projectors for their projects.
Epson Large Venue Projectors
Designed for exceptional performance, Epson EB-4000, EB-G6000 and EB-Z Series Installation Projectors are powerful performers in venues including lecture halls, bars & restaurants, houses of worship and more. These projectors feature high lumens for bright, colourful, brilliant images and utilize advanced display technology such as Edge Blending, Digital Signage and Image Mapping to captivate any audience.
Got a project where the projection surface is a challenge? Fret not as Epson EB-G6000 series comes with curved edge blending feature as well as corner wall support – giving integrators and installers that extra flexibility when installing an out-of-the-box project. In addition, the EB-G6000 and EB-Z series can do a 360-degree install – turning floors and ceilings into immersive displays. Great for digital signage, museums, art shows and many other creative applications, Epson Singapore has supported many local art scenes with their projectors. Some noteworthy 'artsy' installations that had used Epson projectors included Sydney Surfing Arts Exhibition at Marina Bay Sands with Singapore Polytechnic, Verve Arts Festival at the Art House with Ngee Ann Polytechnic and the Urban Arts Festival at Goodsman Arts Centre.
Beside high-brightness lumens, Epson projectors are easy to connect and control as well. With the hot trend now being BYOD, users can easily share content to the projector using the Epson™ app or the EasyMP Network Projection software. Uploading and controlling are all done wirelessly and has never been easier! Want to make your installation even more hassle-free? Epson projectors also come with HDBaseT connectivity, letting you carry full HD video, audio, network and control commands – all on a single CAT5/6 cable! To top it off, all Epson EB-4000, EBG6000 and EB-Z Series also gives you total networking control. Wherever you are, you can manage up to 1024 Epson networked projectors using EasyMP® software. Moreover, users can also send updates or announcements remotely to these 1024 projectors using the Message Broadcasting plugin for EasyMP. Epson projectors are also Crestron®, AMX®, and Extron® compatible – how awesome is that!
Stretching your dollar even further, Epson EB-Z Series, EB-4000 and EBG6000 Series high-brightness projectors can also do stacked 3D installation! Using specialised polarized filters and polarized, low-cost 3D glasses, watch stunning city landscapes come alive before you.
Rental and Staging
Need something for the outdoors? Epson projectors come with SDI output to suit your needs. Designed for rental and staging events, Epson EB-G6000 and EB-Z Series projectors feature 360-degree installation and SDI output – which can accommodate live video streaming. In Singapore, 2 units of Epson EB-Z10000 (featuring 10,000 lumens) projectors were installed at Jalan Besar stadium in 2013 to provide live screening of football matches – much to the delight of fans who had a clear image of their favourite players hitting the games. Equipped with a black case for easy transportability and a sleek, professional look, it is no wonder the projectors were also selected and loaned for theatrical plays such as Sublime Monsters & Virtual Children in 2014 by Theatreworks and Illogic by Cake Theatrical Production in 2013. Last but not least, Epson was also involved in the outdoor projection at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital for one of their event “Songs for Tomorrow” in 2013 and has also supported an outdoor projection for Mediacorp Channel 8 programme “My Heartland Carnival” in 2014.
Projection mapping or also known as facade projection, is something that is booming on the scene right now. In nearly every celebratory event or festival, a captivating facade projection is almost a must-have item for any agenda. And of course, Epson's no stranger to it. With a growing portfolio of projection mapping installations, Epson Singapore has been involved in a number of interesting projects over the past years. These include a facade projection for The Arts House 10th Anniversary event in 2014 and the annual Aliwal Night Crawl for 2013 and 2014 – where short films created by the Singapore Contemporary Young Artists and animations by INKFusion and video art students from Lasalle College of the Arts, were projected on the Aliwal Arts Centre's two walls, each measuring 8 x 9m.
