In addition, Epson’s new active 3D models use radio frequency based 3D glasses that comply with thenew “Full HD 3D Glasses” industry standard. (

3D Education / Business Projectors

The Epson EB-W16 and EB-W16SK are the company’s first 3D projectors meant for education or business users, and offer them a choice of either active or passive 3D technologies,along with their related advantages.

The EB-W16 is an active 3D model that offers an easier setup and lower hardware requirements to deliver a 3D experience, whereas the EB-W16SK is apassive 3D setup using two stacked projectors that offers brighter 3D images, and uses affordable, non-powered, polarised 3D glasses that do not need batteries.

 The EB-W16 is better suited for users that need to set up a 3D projection system on a tighter budget for smaller audiences and darker rooms. The EB-W16SK is more ideal for larger venues as it presents brighter 3D images; and because of its more affordable 3D glasses, it is better for large audiences.

The new Epson EP-400 series and EB-1400wi/1410wi are new models that extend Epson’s market leading range of projectors with integrated interactive technology.

The new EB-400 series short throw projectors are an upgrade of the existing EB-400 short throw projector series to integrated interactive capabilities. This projector offers users who want integrated interactive capabilities a more affordable solution as compared to Epson’s ultra-short throw models.

The Epson EB-1400wi (2600 lumens) /1410wi(3100 lumens) are the company’s first ultra-short throw projectors that are targeted forbusiness users. Ideal for business meetings and collaborative planning, these new models offer very bright images that allow their images to be seen clearly even in the brightest environments, so users need not darken rooms to use them.
