Epson seems to have found a clear sense of purpose in the Kenyan market; it has gained a worldwide reputation in the projector segment and as we’ve seen recently, their relentless effort to capture the East Africa’s largest economy is finally taking toll. They’ve introduced Epson EB-W16 – a commercial projector that has capability to render 3D visualizations as well as higher education, design and engineering applications. Just recently, Kenya received yet another product from Epson; their first Passive 3D Projector that prides of its twin-stacked passive projectors and said to offer best experiences like no other. The image quality on EB-W16 isn’t bad either, courtesy of Epson’s 3LCD technology, images are bright and rendered in 3D projection.
On different ambient light settings, you’ll achieve high white and color output (3,000 lumens to be specific) for 3D images and at the same time managing a decent contrast ration of 5,000:1 that ensures an overall superb detail of images. The design isn’t the worst either, you wouldn’t carry EB-W16 in those skinny jeans like mobile phones but it’s comparatively slimmer and lightweight than close rivals. Beyond its projection, the x1.2 zoom feature ensures 3D images are rendered almost at all positions. To display 3D images on other panels, EB-W16 is compatible with known HDMI 3D signal formats ensuring content is rendered properly from top and bottom, side by side and frame packed content that enhances ability to project the widest range of 3D content available.
At the launch event, East Africa’s regional sales manager Mukesh Bector said they’ve successfully unveiled their bright active 3D technology in our home cinema projector range and are now focusing on the corporate market. Courtesy of the high lumen count, EB-W16 projector is suited for a range of design and engineering apps allowing work to be showcased in a much more immersive way. It uses a lightweight, USB-rechargeable, radio frequency, active shutter 3D glasses that can be used up to 10 meters away.
