Epson Delivers an Innovative and Cost-Effective Solution to Make Any Projector Interactive

Innovative Module Brings Interactivity to Existing Projectors for Use on Virtually Any Surface

DENVER (ISTE, Booth 1846) – June 28, 2010 – Epson America today announced its first solution for bringing interactivity to any projector– the IU-01 interactive module. This innovative, cost-effective classroom tool connects directly to a Windows or Mac computer via USB and provides an easy solution for integrating interactive capabilities with any new or existing projector while eliminating the need to purchase and install dedicated interactive whiteboards (IWB).

To maximize classroom space, the IU-01 can be used on any existing whiteboard, wall or other smooth, light-colored, hard surface. It provides up to 96-inches diagonal (WXGA) and 102-inches diagonal (XGA) of useable interactive area, and delivers educators with virtually unlimited classroom flexibility. The module comes with two interactive pens, wall mount hardware for easy installation, and TeamBoard Draw annotation software to create, capture and share lessons.
“Interactivity is a must-have in today’s 21st century classroom; however, interactive whiteboard costs can be prohibitive.? said Sara Kim, associate product manager, Epson Projection, Epson America. “With the IU-01, school administrators can easily and affordably turn any new or existing projector into an interactive projector, helping to equip more classrooms with interactivity than would otherwise be possible with the same school funds.?
