More than ever, gyms need to be multi-purpose spaces with flexible technology. We caught up with Epson, long-standing leader in pro-AV projection, to discuss the latest trends in projection technology for school auditoriums.

Simone Martorina, Business Manager, Epson Education Projection Solutions:

“Projectors are almost unrecognisable from a decade ago and with new technologies enhancing the brightness and image clarity they now perform well in high ambient lighting. For a long time we’ve relied on lamps to power projectors but now, thanks to advances in optics, our newest fleet of projectors use lasers. This delivers superior projection at a far lower power consumption and significantly lower operating costs than an LCD display of the equivalent size; an important feature to consider when budgets are stringent.”

“Secure housing for projectors is commonplace and can protect the unit from both theft and damage, especially when fitted to the ceiling of a room. School gymnasiums can contain any number of potential hazards, not least flying PE equipment! But lockable, clear polycarbonate shells are designed to withstand impact and even drops. A simple fold-away  or retractable screen to display the projection is convenient and can be easily stowed away when not in use, far more easily than a mounted LCD display.”

“The entire Epson projector range uses 3LCD technology, which works differently to competitor products using DLP, meaning no brightness compromise or distracting “rainbow” effects. It also ensures fantastically high dynamic contrast ratio, making Epson projectors particularly suitable for text and information display.”

“Epson’s Projection Management software tools, allows IT and network managers to easily monitor and control multiple projectors at once, scheduling power on and off or switching sources. It also allows for message broadcasting which can be scheduled or set manually. In the event of an emergency, the evacuation of a large space such as a gymnasium needs to be highly organised and being able to remotely power on and broadcast a message may become invaluable.”

Organise a demo with the Maverick team to see the latest models in action.
