while making the most of their budgets. Brighter Futures offers special

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.

Pricing, Availability and Support

The Epson PowerLite 935W projector will be available in February 2013 for
$1,199 through pro audio/visual dealers, mail order, distribution, commercial
channels, and at www.epson.com. Epson's projectors come with a two-year
limited warranty (three years for Brighter Futures customers) that includes
two elite technical support services- Epson PrivateLine^® phone support with
direct access to an expedited support telephone line and a two-year Road
Service projector replacement program that includes projector exchange in one
business day with paid shipping. For additional information, visit
