Take classroom collaboration to another level with the PowerLite 685W widescreen ultra short-throw presentation display. Designed for today’s BYOD classroom, this WXGA performer displays 100" images from just 11" away for optimal visibility. Offering 3x Higher Color Brightness than competitive models, Epson® 3LCD projectors and displays ensure bright, vivid images. Delivering 3,500 lumens of color and white brightness, the 685W ensures stimulating presentations. It also features wireless functionality (module sold separately) and advanced connectivity, so teachers can share content from multiple devices, including Chromebooks — up to four at once with Moderator software. Plus, its lamp lasts up to 10,000 hours in ECO Mode.
Enjoy virtually shadowless images with the Epson PowerLite 685W 3500-Lumen WXGA Ultra-Short Throw 3LCD Projector. It features an ultra-short 0.28 to 0.37:1 throw ratio, which will allow it to be mounted only 11″ from your screen or whiteboard and project an image as large as 100″, reducing the risk of possible shadows. Its 3500 lumens of brightness, combined with its 14,000:1 contrast ratio, will help it overcome ambient light in many situations and help retain detail in dark areas of the image without compromising overall brightness. The 1280 x 800 native resolution will help ensure that text is clear at most viewing distances.
The PowerLite 685W features USB, RCA composite, and three HDMI inputs to support various sources. One HDMI input is MHL-compatible, which will allow you to connect your compatible smart device directly to the projector to mirror its screen. The USB input allows you to project directly from a Windows or Mac computer. You can output the video to another projector or display with the VGA output. Its 3.5mm audio inputs and output allow for audio transmission, for a more immersive experience. An IR remote is included for convenient control.
