Optimized for boardrooms, classrooms, and other presentation applications, theEpson PowerLite 1980WU WUXGA 3LCD Projectorfeatures a brightness of 4400 lumens and a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). To provide flexibility in terms of placement relative to the screen, it features a 1.6x optical zoom with a 1.38 to 2.28:1 throw ratio. Offering HDMI and analog connectivity, it can be connected to a variety of video sources, plus there is USB for direct plug and play connection or a Mac or Windows computer and a second USB port to project directly off a flash drive or other USB storage device.
As noted, the projector features two HDMI inputs for computers, HDTV appliances, document cameras, HDMI-enabled mobile devices, and more. One of the HDMI inputs features MHL support, meaning it can power a compatible mobile device through the same connection used by the HDMI signal. For legacy analog devices, there are two VGA inputs, plus a single VGA output so that one of the VGA signals can be passed along to a monitor, second projector, or other secondary display. A composite input allows VCRs, DVD players, and SD camcorders to be connected. Finally, there are three analog audio inputs, one on RCA connectors that is paired with the composite input, and two on 3.5mm connectors to accompany the VGA inputs. There is also a 3.5mm output that pairs with the VGA output. A 16-watt built-in speaker provides audio output for times when separate audio is unavailable.
An IR remote is included for local control or you can use buttons on the projector itself. There is also RS-232 for operation from automation systems like Crestron or using custom software. An Ethernet port enables Web-browser operation and projection across a local network.
