LONG BEACH, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --In an age of widescreen
laptops and videos being used for presentations, Epson provides a suite of
projectors with high-definition widescreen WXGA resolution, designed to
deliver larger-than-life images that increase the viewing area with sharper,
more detailed image quality. Epson's high-definition widescreen WXGA
projectors offer a native screen resolution of 1280 x 800, making them
appropriate for both business and classroom use.

Epson America, Inc.

"Our line of high-definition widescreen WXGA projectors – designed for
conference rooms, classrooms and large venues – offer better, higher
resolutions compared to SVGA and XGA projectors and support the latest
widescreen laptop resolutions, providing a sharper and bigger viewing
experience, whether presenting or watching," said Kristi Lanzit, product
manager, Epson America, Inc. "Over 1 million pixels are used to create a
high-definition widescreen aspect ratio on a WXGA projector – more than twice
as many pixels as an SVGA projector –which means much better image detail and
clarity as intended by the latest widescreen laptops."

Following are Epson's top five things to consider when purchasing a projector
and why high-definition widescreen WXGA solutions are ideal:

1.Presentations: Popular presenting solutions such as Microsoft^®
    PowerPoint^®, Apple^® Keynote^® and Prezi^™ offer widescreen templates
    which allow for more content on the screen, providing added flexibility to
    display more valuable information in meetings, presentations and school
2.Laptops: Leverage the advanced quality of HD laptops to produce a higher
    resolution projected image with a high-definition widescreen WXGA
3.Content Support: Be prepared to deliver HD content for videos, movies and
    anything your presentation may need to include.
4.Pixels: High-definition widescreen WXGA resolution delivers higher image
    quality than lower resolution projectors because it can display more
    pixels, increasing the detail of the viewing area without sacrificing
    picture quality.
5.Future Proofing: Stepping up to the purchase of a high-definition
    widescreen WXGA projector enables compatibility with future widescreen
    devices and content.

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 performance without conducting a side-by-side
shootout. With today's high-definition content, teachers and students can
display 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 is important for larger screen sizes
and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient
color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark
room. For more information, visit
