MALVERN, Pa., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Presentations are an essential
part of the business meeting experience, but must the projector occupy the
center of the table, tangling people and papers in its cords and noisily
blowing hot air into guests' faces?

Not if the projectors are from Ricoh Americas Corporation, which today
unveiled a new line of projection systems that uniquely rest at the edge of
the table with wires, vents and light directed away from attendees, leaving
the center of the table clear for business.

The RICOH PJ X3340, PJ WX3340, PJ X3340N and PJ WX3340N Desk Edge projection
systems, which can also be mounted on ceilings, reflect Ricoh's commitment to
solving customer problems through elegant design.

"We believe projection systems deserve the same design optimization that
cameras, printers and smart phones are undergoing to provide higher-end
functions in sleeker packages," said Matt Sakauchi, Vice President, Visual
Communications Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "In addition to delivering
compelling presentations, these systems make a powerful statement about your
business and how you want to treat the people you're hosting."

Ricoh is the only projection system manufacturer to offer fan and cable
connections on the lens side. Its breakthrough auto brightness function dials
brightness up or down depending on ambient light, prolonging lamp life and
conserving electricity. Networked models, which both support wireless and
wired connections, can be managed by Ricoh's @Remote software to further
minimize energy consumption. A built-in 10-watt speaker system provides
impressive audio for larger corporate settings, even though the device barely
consumes the footprint of a business letter.

Powerful capabilities

These units can project images from as close to the wall or screen as 27
inches and as far away as 24 feet. High-definition images range from 30 inches
diagonal to 240 inches, depending on the proximity and model.

The RICOH Desk Edge Series can be operated via one-touch keys or remote
control. The projectors automatically self-balance to maximize focus and
minimize distortion even when projecting in tight spaces or at sharp angles.
Two of the systems, the RICOH PJ X3340N and PJ WX3340N, automatically focus
for a sharper image when the projector is first turned on or moved. When
projecting onto color surfaces, Wall Color Mode offers subtle color
enhancements automatically to improve image clarity.

USB connections enable hosts to deliver computer-free presentations, and the
multi-screen mode enables guests in up to four different rooms with four
different projectors, to view the same presentation seamlessly.

For more engaging meetings and brainstorming sessions, the RICOH Desk Edge
Series can turn walls and ordinary whiteboards into interactive digital
whiteboards when combined with the optional eBeam^® technology from Luidia.
Users can project from any networked Mac or PC and capture information for use
