LONG BEACH, Calif. – Aug. 23, 2011 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide1, today introduced three new VS-series projectors that provide small businesses with high-brightness at low costs. All three models deliver 2,600 lumens of color and white light output2 – the VS210 ($399*) offers SVGA resolution, the VS310 ($499*) delivers XGA resolution, and the VS315W ($599*) provides WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution for users looking to leverage widescreen notebooks and high-definition content. In addition, weighing in at 5.1 pounds, all three models are lightweight and travel friendly for ease-of-use when on the road.

“Since Epson introduced the VS-series last year, we have received insightful customer feedback and requests to expand the product line to give budget conscious small businesses the brightness they need without the high prices,? said Jason Meyer, product manager, Epson America. “With these needs in mind, Epson has improved its VS projectors to deliver increased brightness, affordability, performance, and ease-of-use.?

The VS210, VS310 and VS315W offer easy-to-use connectivity and control features, including USB Plug ‘n Play for instantly projecting video and audio from a PC or Mac® computer via a USB connection, as well as automatic vertical keystone correction for easy image alignment and fast setup. In addition, the new VS models feature Direct Power On and Off for wall switch power control and Instant On/Off® which instantly powers the projector on and off with no cool down time. All Epson projectors come equipped with the latest 3LCD, 3-chip technology to deliver vibrant images, true-to-life color and detail for powerful presentations. 3LCD technology provides an energy-efficient and reliable light engine which uses available lamp light to create stunning images, and in contrast to 1-chip DLP technology, 3LCD requires, on average, 25 percent less electricity per lumen of brightness3.

Availability and Support

The Epson VS210, VS310 and VS315W will be available in Sept. 2011 through national resellers, mail order and distribution. All models come with a standard one-year limited warranty that includes two elite technical support services – Epson PrivateLine® phone support with direct access to an expedited support telephone line via a phone card included with the product, and a Road Service projector replacement program that includes projector exchange in two business days.
