We were recently whisked away to Siargao along with other friends from the media to attend Epson’s annual Fusion Event. We were treated to a wonderful time full of fun in the sun and loads of lechon. Kicking off this year’s activities, Epson introduced several new products ranging from printers that can print up to 75,000 pages before needing ink replacement, an On-the-Go POS systems, and industrial labeling solutions. But, 3 products stood out in the crowd and we definitely recommend keeping an eye out for them.
Epson EH-LS1000 – Laser Light Source Home Projector
This projector is straight out of Epson’s wheel house. This state-of-the-art projector is equipped with 3 LCD Reflective Panels and a Dual Laser Light Source. The resulting images from this gem have really vivid colors and really deep blacks — as in, 0 lumens… That’s really black! Even though this Laser Light Source Home Projector only has Full HD resolution it can enhance images to 4K to truly give you a cinematic experience in your home; all to the tune of Php 399,090. Facundo! Ilabas ang kayamanan!!!
We wrote about PaperLab a few months back, but Epson gave us a closer look at this product. They didn’t have it on-hand during the event, but they explained the concepts behind their paper making system. Their aim is to reduce the footprint made by hauling paper to different facilities to get the finished, recycled product and have offices who can’t go paperless make use of all that scratch paper. The process is completely dry. Used paper will be shredded into fine fibers, and bound together by special binders produced by Epson. These binders will also come in a variety of colors, in case you need churn out some pink paper for any reason. They’re still testing out the PaperLab before it gets released, but they’re already thinking of ways to make it smaller for use in more offices. No official price and release date for the PaperLab just yet, but we’re all for recycling. Kudos to Epson for this!
Moverio Pro BT-2000
Move over, Google Glass! The Moverio BT-2000 uses Augmented Reality applications to life for use in industrial and enterpirse settings. It has the ability to overlay 3D content on top of real world environments. If you’ve had the chance to fiddle around with the AR cards that ship with the Nintendo 3DS, it’s sort of like that but does more than play games. The BT-2000 can provide on-site information to increase productivity in the work place, help with repairs and maintenance, and warehouse logistics; among other things. We’ve even tried watching a video on it and it was really trippy. Plus, it kinda make us feel a bit like Iron Man.
