Epson Announces Two New Projectors

Epson offers two new projectors for business users, including one with integrated wireless connectivity.

Epson has announced two new projectors aimed at the business market one of which features wireless connectivity.

The EMP-835 and EMP-830 both offer XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution with a ANSI Lumens (brightness) rating of 3000 and a 600:1 contrast ratio. Lamp-life is given as 3,000 hours. The CCDs used in the projectors are 4:3 in shape rather than widescreen 16:9, but this makes sense considering these are intended more aimed at the boardroom rather than the bedroom.


The EMP-835 offers built-in wireless connectivity that conforms to the 802.11g standard, delivering speeds of up to 54MB/sec. This also conforms to the latest security standards such as WEP and WPA, ensuring that you can transmit corporate data to the projector securely. As well as wireless, the EMP-835 features a USB and PC Card slot, enabling presentations to be made from removable storagemedia, doing away with the need to use a laptop.

The high zoom lens ensures that the projector can be used to create a picture of 60 inches at a distance of only 1.8m or at up to 2.8m enabling the projector to be placed in more convenient positions. An auto-setup feature ensures that the screen sorts itself out for you in 12-18 seconds, so you can quickly get on with the job of presenting while the low fan noise of only 28db means you won’t be overly disturbed while doing so. The EMP-830 offers the same features but without the wireless connectivity.

The EMP-835 will have a suggested retail price of £2,899 while the EMP-830 will cost £2,749. You can find out more details on these projectors at
