Epson Announces 3D Projectors Designed Specifically for Education
Posted on Wednesday, January 16, 2013
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 16, 2013 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide1, today introduced two 3D projector solutions designed to enhance the learning experience in classrooms – the PowerLite® W16 and W16SK. Epson is offering two 3D projection choices – one based on active 3D technology and the other on passive 3D technology – which both deliver three times brighter colors than most competitive projectors2, allowing 3D content to be easily viewed in typical, well-lit classroom settings. The projectors also offer a wide range of features including easy setup and connectivity options, bringing ease of use and convenience to the classroom at an affordable price point. The PowerLite W16 and W16SK will be shown at the Epson booth (#709) at FETC in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 28-31, 2013.
“Studies have shown that 3D in education is on the rise and 3D lessons increase student learning and retention3. Epson now offers a solution to help bring 3D into the classroom in a more affordable way,” said Sara Kim, associate product manager, K-12 Education Marketing, Epson America. “For example, whether faced with high ambient light or the need to provide affordable 3D glasses for all students, the Epson PowerLite W16SK addresses these challenges by delivering high quality and incredibly bright images, and leveraging technology that allows for inexpensive 3D glasses to be used for all content for every student.”
By offering both an active and passive model, Epson is able to provide broader choices for educators selecting the right 3D projection solution for their classroom. The PowerLite W16 and W16SK deliver WXGA widescreen resolution and, unlike most 3D-ready projectors, support multiple HDMI 3D formats4 out of the box, with no external converter box required.
The Epson PowerLite W16 is designed for educators interested in an active 3D projection solution and offers great image quality, brightness and ease of use with Epson’s active shutter 3D RF glasses. The PowerLite W16 also offers a dynamic 2D visual experience with 3,000 lumens of color brightness and 3,000 lumens of white light output5. The PowerLite W16 requires minimal set-up with automatic vertical and horizontal keystone correction, 3-in-1 USB Plug ‘n Play and the option to install or remain as a portable projector.
The PowerLite W16SK dual projection system is the industry’s only stacked projector kit available today made specifically for education. This highly cost effective 3D solution includes two projectors, polarizing lenses and a stack mount to deliver ultra-bright passive 3D projection. The PowerLite W16SK uses inexpensive passive 3D glasses, priced at only $3 a pair and sold as a box of five pairs. It delivers up to 6,000 lumens of color brightness and 6,000 lumens of white light output5 in 2D mode when stacked, making them bright enough for well-lit classrooms.

Blue Valley Baptist Church is pleased to have an ongoing relationship with Advanced Sound and Communications. We have engaged in projects with them ranging from simple equipment rentals for special events to large-scale design and installations on two of our campuses. Their strengths are many, but near the top of the list is an ability to think creatively to address not only current needs, but also the long-term functionality of the system in your venue for years to come. Our experiences with them in regard to customer service have all been favorable from telephone reception to installers to follow up. They have our confidence and trust.

ASC is one of the best integrators we have worked with at Builders For Christ. The installation was very clean. Great attention was paid to the smallest detail. It's rare for an integrator to take such ownership of a project.
