As part of the Epson Projection Conference & Showcase 2017, Epson Singapore today presented Epson Town, a showcase of projection innovations that transform everyday life.
Held at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, Epson showcased the concept of a small town, built around the use and application of Epson’s revolutionary 3LCD and laser projection technologies. With precision and performance at the centre of the showcase, guests experienced a live demonstration on the impact of holistic integrated solutions on areas such as education, corporate, home, retail, as well as public spaces for businesses and consumers.
As the projection landscape continues to evolve, Epson believes that projection innovations are developing into important communication tools that engage audiences in new and exciting ways. In addition, the global technology giant believes that innovation works best when attention is paid to the details.
Ms. Tan May Lin, General Manager (Sales, Marketing and Customer Service division) of Epson Singapore said, “When it comes to developing new technologies and innovations, we believe that it’s our attention to detail that makes a fundamental difference and sets us apart from our competitors. These details come from listening to what our customers want from our products, and satisfying their needs by designing products that exceed their expectations. In terms of Epson’s projection innovation, every component in our projectors is created with the same obsessive attention to detail to ensure spectacular performance that will stun even the biggest crowd.”
Revolutionise Education with Projection Innovation
Today’s rapidly changing educational landscape demands intelligent, easy-to-use technology that inspires new ways of thinking. Theclassroomtodayhasevolvedto encourage a learning dialogue between students and teachers with an interactive ultra-short throw display solution. Display size matters – although obvious, some do not realise that screen size is of paramount importance, especially in the common large classroom settings. A recent study in the US by Radius Global Market Research found that 58 per cent of students in an average classroom are unable to read content displayed on a 70-inch flat panel display.
With large interactive screen size offered by interactive projectors, the projected images are not restricted to a specific size and can go up to 100-inches. In addition, interactive content can be delivered to every student in the classroom, and both students and teachers can interact with group projects using gestures or pens, make, share, and discuss notes without having to power up a PC. As interactive projectors become an increasingly popular teaching tool in classrooms, Epson’s projection technologies will continue to revolutionise teaching and learning by better engaging learners with attractive visuals and interactive features at an affordable cost.
