Epson, the number one projector manufacturer in the world1, today announced its LightScene® Accent Lighting Laser Projector line won its first education award, the 2019 EdTech Breakthrough Awards. The award, which honors the best companies, products and services in the field of educational technology, recognized LightScene in the Education Hardware Innovation category.
LightScene is designed to meet education’s demand for digital signage by simultaneously illuminating and projecting dynamic content on virtually any surface to engage audiences. Using LightScene K-12 schools and universities can showcase student work, provide wayfinding, promote events, acknowledge volunteers or donors and bring a lesson to life by projecting a scene, such as a rainforest, on every surface in the classroom.
LightScene leverages Epson’s 3LCD laser technology, providing up to 20,000 hours of a virtually maintenance-free laser light source2. The combination of its 360-degree vertical and horizontal rotation, powered optical zoom and focus, and sleek spotlight form factor create beautiful and unobtrusive displays without compromising performance, versatility, or reliability.
“As more and more schools and universities look to engage their students through digital experiences – whether it is helping students find their way around campus or projecting messages on bleachers as students walk into a stadium – they need versatile, compact options for projection,” said Remi Del Mar, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. “We set out to create a projector that would turn ordinary spaces into stunning visual environments and winning an EdTech Breakthrough Award validates this innovation.”
As a leading manufacturer of innovative classroom displays, Epson also offers the Brighter Futures®program, a unique sales and support initiative available specifically for schools. Designed to help educators select and implement the best products for their classrooms while making the most of their budgets, Brighter Futures offers special pricing, extended Epson limited warranty coverage for a total of three years, dedicated education account managers, and toll-free technical support for all Epson projectors and associated accessories.
