Cultnat picks Epson multimedia projector.

The award-winning Egyptian Center for Documentation of Cultural & Natural Heritage (Cultnat) is using new multimedia projectors from Epson to promote Egypt's rich cultural and natural heritage.

Epson said that nine Epson 1815 projectors are being used at Cultnat's fully interactive multimedia program known as Cultural Panorama (Culturama), which offers audiences an opportunity to experience virtual journeys through the different eras of Egyptian civilization, starting from the Pharaonic period, passing through the Coptic and Islamic, and ending with the modern era.

The Epson 1815 projectors are mounted on the ceiling in a semi-circular formation and are controlled by a single computer, and a 180-degree interactive computer screen, which consists of nine individual screens also arranged in a semicircular shape.

Culturama is ideal for displaying large scenes that are not served well by regular display systems, such as panoramic images, a statement said.

"Epson has been chosen to provide some of the hardware components of Culturama because of the company's strong reputation in terms of product durability and service excellence," said Mohamed Farouk, vice president -- IT, Cultnat.

"The Epson 1815 projectors also deliver fantastic colours that match the technical requirements of the interactive display system. In addition, the projectors have excellent real lamp life and we are likewise fully satisfied with the high level of maintenance and after-sales services being provided by Epson."

Khalil El-Dalu, general manager, Epson Middle East, said: "Culturama is a very important initiative that provides an innovative, informative and entertaining platform to promote, preserve and create awareness about the rich history and heritage of Egypt."

"Epson is thus pleased to be part of this project and to offer our products and expertise for its success. We will build on our partnership with the Egyptian Center for Documentation of Cultural & Natural Heritage to support similar high-profile projects to achieve the desired results in terms of image quality and overall projector performance," he added. -- TradeArabia News Service
