Bring learning to life with this interactive and collaborative teaching solution

3 January 2017 – Encourage teaching collaboration, take advantage of advanced connectivity, and deliver results with Epson’s latest intuitive ultra-short-throw interactive teaching solution, the EB-696Ui. With optional wireless connectivity and an enhanced moderator function, it’s easy to encourage students with highly-detailed images presented in Full HD resolution.

Hans Dummer, director, Visual Instruments, EMEAR, says: “This high-end, ultra short-throw projector uses the latest technology to allow sharing and impressive interactivity and a scalable display size of up to 100inches, something that flat-panel displays just can't economically offer. A long lamp life of up to 10,000 hours in eco mode reduces maintenance levels. Finger-touch and dual-pen interactivity make it easy for students to join in by directly writing or drawing on projected images without a mobile device or PC. Alternatively, EasyMP Multi-PC Projection software’s enhanced moderator function means teachers can easily display the content they want from up to 50 student devices, providing even more opportunities for sharing content between teachers and students.”

The Epson iProjection App makes it easy for students to share content, and it’s available for iOS and Android  devices, and now Google Chromebooks. Intuitive PC-free annotation functions are expanded by enhancing control and annotation toolbars, including the addition of  print and save functions, that can be accessed through the new home screen. Also featured are split-screen capabilities and ultra-wide multiscreen interactivity, the ability to control a document camera directly from the EB-696Ui, a built-in 16w speaker and microphone input.

The EB-696Ui is also joined by 10 further models in the range; the EB-695Wi, EB-685Wi, EB-680Wi, EB-675Wi, EB-685W, EB-685WS, EB-675W, EB-680, EB-680S and EB-670. All are built around 3LCD technology to produce bright, vibrant images up to 100 inches in size with an up to 16,000:1 contrast ratio. All models have three HDMI inputs to allow educators to easily connect devices, including PCs, DVD players and document cameras. SMART Notebook software also comes with all models.


The EB-696Ui, EB-695Wi, EB-685Wi, EB-680Wi, EB-675Wi, EB-685W, EB-675W, EB-680 and EB-670 are available from January 2017.
