darker blacks, and are housed in black or white casing to easily blend into

Advanced Connectivity Options

The PowerLite Pro G6750WU, Pro G6900WU and Pro G6800 include connectivity
options for HDBaseT, a new technology that integrates full HD video and audio,
Ethernet, and serial communication, into a single CAT 5/6 cable that can be
extended up to 328 feet. HDBaseT eliminates costly and labor intensive cable
extension process and signal repeaters for large venue installations. The Pro
G6900WU and Pro G6800 integrate connectivity for HD-SDI, which is the standard
for transmitting uncompressed broadcast-grade HD video and signals over short
distances, predominantly used in professional television studios.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance

The new color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue)
published by the Society of Information Display (SID) allows consumers to
compare projector color brightness without conducting a side-by-side shootout.
With today's high definition content, teachers and students want to enjoy
content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive
image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white
brightness. High color brightness enables an even brighter color image for
larger screen sizes and on a larger variety of screen materials. Without
sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even
in a dark room. Whether projecting a presentation, interactive lesson or
movie, Epson's line of education projectors deliver consistent color
brightness and white brightness, allowing students and teachers to view
life-like reproduction of any content.
