The Epson booth is swarming with new products and interested parties today as the company shows its new portables for presenters on the go. These little pearly white machines with soft corners have several new features that I can certainly appreciate for high use environments. While they still can accomodate the usual analog formats, digital has moved in and the great thing is that you can have direct USB conveyance from the computer to the projector with no configuration or source hunting at all. Turn on the projector and the computer. Connect the two with a USB cable and your image is up on the screen. No more fumbling with the function key combos. The new models have A type USB, HDMI and SD card slots as well, so you can have your presentation on just about anything.
These new projectors were made to meet the format and learning curve challenges that have been colliding on so much equipment and it appears that a lot of careful though and customer feedback went into them. It was a great demo.
