Projectors are becoming an increasingly popular way for businesses to liven up their boardroom, taking over from the days of having to crowd around a laptop, or spend time connecting up confusing networks of wires.
Epson’s PowerLite 1781W projector is the latest offering that looks to provide such services, all packaged in a slender design that can easily be packed up and taken to a meeting.
As the name suggests, one of the stand-out features of the PowerLite 1781W is its lightweight build. Weighing in at just 1.67kg, the device is ultra-portable, which is incredibly useful if you need to take it to a meeting or presentation.
Thanks to its slimlime design, measuring in at 5cm tall and 29cm long, equivalent to many modern laptops, carrying it around is a breeze – and the device will easily slip into most laptop bags or rucksacks (if you don’t want to use the handy carry-case Epson provides you with). There’s also a two year warranty in case of any slips or spills, but the plastic body looks like it can withstand much of what a modern office should throw at it.
Setting the device up to start projecting is easy, with a small kickstand operated by a simple switch, and a lengthy power cable ensuring there should be no need to scrabble around for the right connections.
The PowerLite 1781W has a lamp life of up to 7,000 hours in Eco mode, and 4,000 hours in normal mode – more than enough for a couple of year’s video-conferencing or film-watching.
