EPSON EPSON Son of Electronic Printer  PowerLite(R) 820p Offers Higher Performance -- Now Even More

Ideal for Conference and Classroom Settings

Epson America has raised the bar on performance within its series of sub-10-pound portable projectors with the new EPSON PowerLite(R) 820p. This value-packed, 9.3-pound projector offers all of the features found in its successful predecessor the PowerLite 810p with an increase in brightness now rated at 2,500 ANSI lumens. The projector is currently available through authorized Epson dealers with an estimated street price of $4,499.

About Epson's 9.3-Pound "Portable Series" Projectors

The EPSON PowerLite 820p, PowerLite 811p and PowerLite 600p feature an array of new technologies and represent outstanding values for educational and conference room settings. The projectors also offer substantial brightness ranging from 1,700-2,500 ANSI lumens, an ergonomic design weighing 9.3 pounds and prices starting at $2,679 (estimated street price).

"Some manufacturers can claim their projectors offer the brightest output, the lightest travel weight, or the lowest price -- but Epson projectors are designed to provide the most important feature of all ... the best value," said Mark Pickard, group product manager, A/V (1) (Audio/Video) Refers to equipment and applications that deal with sound and sight. The A/V world includes microphones, tape recorders, audio mixers, still and video cameras, film projectors, slide projectors, VCRs, CD and DVD players/recorders, amplifiers and  Products, Epson. "This line of PowerLite projectors is designed to give customers -- especially conference room presenters and educators -- the elements that are most important to them: outstanding video quality with a high-end set of features in a sub-10-pound model that won't wipe out their budgets."

All three models use three 0.9-inch high aperture LCDs to produce rich colors with razor-sharp contrast across the entire screen and a 400:1 contrast ratio for blacker blacks, whiter whites and crisper-looking text. The PowerLite 820p uses a Micro Lens Array to produce 2,500 ANSI lumens images in true XGA (EXtended Graphics Array) A screen resolution of 1,024x768 pixels. The term stems from IBM's XGA display standard introduced in 1990, which extended VGA to 132-column text and interlaced 1,024x768x256 resolution. XGA-2 later added non-interlaced 1,024x768x64K.  native resolution (1024 x 768). The PowerLite 811p projects up to 2,000 ANSI lumens in true XGA native resolution, while the PowerLite 600p is rated at 1,700 ANSI (American National Standards Institute, New York, A membership organization founded in 1918 that coordinates the development of U.S. voluntary national standards in both the private and public sectors.

State-of-the-art video performance is further enhanced by a color processing technology that improves color consistency while reducing video noise. This technology offers six projection modes that are user selectable based on the projection environment. Each model is also designed to provide whisper-quiet operation (38 db), in addition to five-watt amplified sound for clear audio output that can fill an entire room.

Another unique feature for all three of these projectors is the implementation of not only vertical, but also horizontal keystone adjustments. This feature enables the projectors to be offset up to 10 degrees left and right from the center of the screen, but still maintain a rectangular image. This is especially useful in rooms with ceilings that have obstacles where a projector would ideally be placed or where the best position is on a table that is offset.

Epson has also created a lens with shorter throw distance allowing the projector to be placed closer to fill a 60-inch screen, making table-top applications less intrusive.
