Next-Generation Projector A/V Control Box Helps Educators Easily and Conveniently Manage Epson Short-Throw and Ultra Short-Throw Projectors

 Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today introduced the PowerLite® Pilot 3 Projector Connection and Control Box, a convenient wall-mounted A/V solution for Epson short-throw and ultra short-throw projectors. Designed to support an array of devices, the PowerLite Pilot 3 helps educators maximize cable management, control classroom projectors, and streamline source switching and volume control. Epson’s new PowerLite Pilot 3 will be on display at ISTE 2018 in Chicago from June 25-27, 2018 at Epson’s booth, #1524.

 “Expanding upon earlier versions of the technology, the new PowerLite Pilot 3 takes projector control to the next level,” said Veronika Knight, product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “The device’s centralized cable management, intuitive functionality, and optimized connectivity gives teachers maximum control while connecting and managing various Epson devices in their classroom.”

 The PowerLite Pilot 3 provides consolidated cable management and streamlined control of classroom A/V devices.
