Designed for business and mobile professionals who require a high-quality, feature-rich and lightweight projector that can be easily taken from location to location, the Epson EX100 is priced at $999 (estimated street price) and is available at OfficeMax and other leading retail locations.
“The EX100 offers the ideal combination of performance and size for entrepreneurs, mobile road warriors and business professionals alike,” said Carrie Brown, product manager, Epson. “Whether showing off multimedia imagery or slideshow presentations, customers will benefit from the ease-of-use, low total cost of ownership, and industry-leading image quality with true-to-life color that is inherent in Epson’s award-winning projectors and 3LCD technology.”

The projector is easy to set up and operate, and offers versatile connectivity options, including the ability to project high-definition video. Designed to offer the ultimate combination of brightness and image clarity in a lightweight package, the Epson EX100 projector ships with a convenient carrying case and component video adapter, and offers many features that enable professionals to deliver high-quality multimedia presentations:
·HD-Ready: Supports high-definition video through various connectivity options (including component video via an included VGA-to-component video adapter); supports HDTV (720p, 1080i)
·Instant On and Instant Off®: Enables presenters to be up and running in only five seconds between pressing the “Power” button and the appearance of the start-up screen to avoid delays at the beginning of a presentation; powers down in four seconds allowing presenters to unplug and pack up immediately and safely without a cool-down period
·Simple Set-up and Flexible Positioning: Features a 1.2x power zoom lens that can project a large and clear image from either long or short throw distances, and auto keystone correction for immediate and automatic image adjustment
·A/V Mute Slide: Instantly turns off the sound and images to create a quick pause in the presentation, conserving lamp life and energy; the projector enters A/V Mute mode when the lens cover is closed and returns to normal mode automatically and immediately upon reopening the lens cover
·“Presenter View”: Allows users to project a PowerPoint slide on the screen in “slideshow” mode, while simultaneously viewing presentation notes and operating buttons on the monitor; ideal for delivering detailed and complicated presentations that require the presenter to review notes separately from the audience
