Epson Unveils New Projectors

Lightweight and high-output models debut By Dave Nagel
Epson today announced three new models in its line of portable digital projectors. These include two lightweight, ultraportable LCD projectors and one high-output portable model.

The high-output model, the 8200i, is Epson's brightest portable projector to date. It offers a brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio of 600:1. It has a native XGA resolution, optical 10 degree lens shift and 30 degree keystone correction. At 18.3 pounds, the 8200i skirts the bounds of the "portable" class, but it is lighter than several other projectors in its output range. It will be available this month for $7,859.

On the ultraportable side, Epson has also debuted two 4.3-pound LCD projectors, the PowerLite 730c and 720c. The 730c offers 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness, while the 720c offers 1,500. Both models feature two all-new Epson technologies--a 15-degree digital auto-keystone correction that automatically engages and corrects trapezoid-shaped images without manual adjustments and a 10-second cool down time. Other projector enhancements include an optical zoom for enlarging specific areas within an image and a cable lock feature for security-sensitive environments. Both projectors have a native XGA resolution.

The PowerLite 730c and PowerLite 720c are priced at $3,999 and $3,499, respectively. They will be available in May. For more information, visit
