Just Projectors review on the Epson EB-685W
With a short throw unit, you will be able to project a large image from a short distance away from the screen and also eliminate shadows when presenting. WXGA resolution, that matches the resolution and aspect ratio of most laptop displays, and HDMI input mean that students benefit from sharp, clear projected images. Project for longer with improved reliability and a longer lamp life of up to 10,000 hours. There are three HDMI ports so you can connect to multiple sources at the same time.
The multi-PC projection collaborative software allows content to be shared simultaneously, with a moderator function keeping the teacher in control. You can even share content easily from a range of smart devices using the iProjection App, with wireless capability. There's no warm-up time either; simply plug it in and turn on. It is designed to work with SMART Board M600 and 800 interactive whiteboards supporting the SMART Extended Control Panel (ECP) - letting you control the power, volume and input options. Collaboration is seamless with this integrated solution. When paired with a SMART Board interactive whiteboard, this system includes SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, allowing users to easily interact in real-time with on-screen content. Educators can enliven the classroom with thousands of pieces of pre-created SMART Notebook content to engage and inspire students. Overall, this is a reliable short throw unit, check out the PDF to the left for more information.

About Just Projectors
We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best. We only buy UK stock,which has higher warranty standards to ensure you get real value for money. We don't sell the cheap brands as the lumens isn't verified.
