Epson PowerLite 535W Short Throw Projector
The short-throw Epson PowerLite 535W 3LCD Projector is ideal for classroom settings, rear projection, and other installations where the projector needs to be placed very close to the screen. For example, with a 28″ throw distance, it will produce a 106″-diagonal image. The 3LCD imaging device features a WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution, and is backed up by a lamp producing a brightness of 3400 lumens in its brightest setting. In addition to WXGA, the projector can scale a range of non-native resolutions from SD (480p) up to UXGA (1600 x 1200).
Featuring ultra bright widescreen performance, the easy-to-use PowerLite 535W short-throw projector offers engaging classroom lessons. Delivering 3x Brighter Colors than competitive models, Epson® 3LCD projectors ensure vibrant images. Featuring 3400 lumens of color brightness and 3400 lumens of white brightness, the 535W shines – even in sunny rooms. Project images up to 116″ from 4′ away with minimal shadows or glare. Utilizing low-cost, long-lasting lamps, this reliable performer provides a low total cost of ownership. It also features flexible installation. Plus, Moderator device management software allows instructors to wirelessly share students’ work from multiple devices, simultaneously – including computers, iOS® and Android™ devices.
In addition to device connection, the Ethernet port allows the projector to be managed remotely – which helps reduce IT administration costs by enabling centralized control. A CD with management software is included. Additionally, RS-232 allows you to integrate the projector with automation systems such as Crestron. Finally, an IR remote is included for local control of the projector. When connected to a computer through USB, the remote can also serve as a presentation mouse – for example, by changing slides in PowerPoint documents.
- Short-Throw Design
- A 0.48:1 throw ratio means, for example, that this projector can throw a 100″-wide image when placed 48″ from the screen. This is considered a short-throw projector – ideal for classrooms, rear projection, and other installations where the projector has to be placed near the screen
- 3400 Lumens Lamp
- A single lamp provides 3400 lumens brightness in Normal mode, and is estimated to last 5000 hours (up to 10,000 hours if continually used in the low-brightness ECO mode). To determine the ideal brightness level for your application, you will need to take into account the screen width, distance from the projector to the screen (throw distance), amount of ambient light near the screen, and the reflectivity (gain) of the screen surface used
- 16:10 Native Aspect Ratio
- This projector features a 16:10 native aspect ratio. This is considered a widescreen format, and comes very close to the 16:9 standard of HDTV. This format is ideal if you plan to show HD video, and can still be used for presentations – though, in the case of PowerPoints, some extra space may be leftover on the sides. The projector can show 4:3, too; however, black bars (pillaring) will have to be applied, or the image will have to be stretched or cropped to fit
- USB Connectivity
- There are two USB ports, a type-A female and a type-B female. Between them, you can project from a flash drive or other USB storage device, connect a USB document camera, use the projector remote as a presentation mouse, and project from a computer using USB. You can also use the type-A port to connect Epson’s optional Wi-Fi dongle
- Moderator Function and BYOD Support
- Multi-PC projection and Moderator function allows up to 50 devices to connect over a network to share content to the projector – making this a true bring your own device (BYOD) solution. Up to four devices can project simultaneously
- Optional Wi-Fi Dongle
- In addition to the built-in Ethernet port, wireless connectivity is possible when using Epson’s Wi-Fi dongle (V12H005M09, available separately). To project wirelessly, use the Epson iProjection App for iOS and Android, or a Windows computer with Wi-Fi
- 16W Speaker and Microphone Input
- For standalone usage where no separate sound system is available, the PowerLite 535W features a built-in 16-watt speaker. A microphone input means the presenter can patch their mic directly into the projector, rather than using the mic input on a computer or document camera
- Pre-Set Templates
- Choose from four pre-set templates or create a custom template to project lines or grids onto whiteboards or chalkboards
- Quick Corner
- This digital correction feature allows you to move any of the four corners of an image independently at setup, to adjust each corner for a perfectly rectangular picture, even when the projector is not squarely aligned with the screen
- Closed Captioning Support
- Built-in closed captioning helps educational institutions meet ADA 508 requirements for students with hearing impairments
