Epson EB-685W Ultra-Short Throw WXGA 3LCD Projector
Image that Illuminates
High Brightness Even in Eco-mode
Reduce energy consumption in ECO mode with minimal impact on image brightness. When ECO mode is turned on, brightness will only be reduced to 2,900 lumens. That means you can still enjoy bright projection even as you save on energy costs.
Save energy consumption and do your part for the environment with the eco-friendly auto-brightness adjustment. The luminance sensor detects the brightness level of the environment and adjusts the projector’s brightness automatically, giving you power and cost savings. This function can be turned on/off according to your preference.
Panoramic Interactive Experience
PC-less Interactive Functionality
With this original PC-free interactive feature by Epson, you can write and draw on the projector’s in-built digital whiteboard or any image projected from other non-PC sources such as document camera, blue-ray player, video conference system, tablets and smart phones. You can also control any photo slide show loaded from a USB memory key in PC-free mode.
Enhanced Audience Collaboration
Ultra-short Throw Advantage
With ultra-short throw, light from this interactive projector is less distracting as it barely touches the presenter, ensuring a more comfortable experience compared to conventional models. As light is not blocked by the presenter, less shadow is formed on the screen, allowing the audience to clearly see the information projected at all times. The ultra-short throw setup also ensures stable performance of the two interactive pens and provides consistent colour uniformity over the entire screen. These advantages keep the presenter more comfortable and enable clear, smooth presentations.
With ultra-short throw, it is now possible to project a large screen within the narrow space of retail windows. You can now create captivating window displays with the help of large projections to increase the visibility of store merchandise. The ultra-short throw projectors can also be flexibly mounted onto a table to create an engaging interactive tabletop for meetings and discussions.
Wide Range of Connectivity
Advanced connectivity features mean convenient and hassle-free projections of your presentations. Featuring wide-ranging interfaces, these projector not only correspond with multiple conventional analogue sources, they are also compatible with HDMI and supports CEC. And with three HDMI input terminals, of which one is MHL-enabled for mirroring of Android mobile devices, you can connect to various devices and share contents from different sources easily. Simply connect your MHL-compatible device with the MHL cable to fully enjoy your contents on the big screen. What’s more, when connected, you can charge your Android mobile device and operate it using the projector’s remote control.
iProjection App for Mobile Devices
The iProjection app enables both iOS and Android devices to easily connect to the projector. You can use iProjection to wirelessly project various documents, photos and web pages, and draw on the device screen and share on projection. To connect, search for the projector in your local network or simply scan a QR code displayed on the projector screen. Remote control function is also built into iProjection so you can use the app to control projector functions. In addition, iProjection now supports screen mirroring (without audio) from devices running on Android 5.0 and above.
* In iProjection, projector profile search, multi-screen display, distribution function, audio transfer, movie file transfer, interrupt connection disabling and encryption data transfer capabilities are not supported.
** Wireless LAN USB dongle ELPAP10 is sold separately to enable projector’s wireless connectivity to PCs, devices and wireless network.
Multi PC Projection
Project from your laptop wirelessly using Epson EasyMP Multi PC Projection 2.0 software. Up to 50 laptops and mobile devices can connect to a single projector via this software. A laptop or device of the presenter can be assigned as the moderator and send a projected image with questions to all connected participant devices. After the participants write down their answers on the image and project them, the moderator can view thumbnail previews of the answers and select up to four of them to be projected on the screen simultaneously for sharing and comparison.
Convenient and Ergonomic Features
View and access your most frequently used functions immediately from the home screen. See all input sources at one glance and switch between them easily. For devices to easily connect wirelessly, the projector’s wireless network information and QR code are also shown on the home screen.
Auto Power On
With the auto power on function, projection starts automatically once a projection signal is detected via VGA cable.
Improved Control Toolbar on the Projector Screen
Conveniently access commonly used functions from the control toolbar projected on screen. Buttons available include Home, Print, Save, Image Share, Input, Zoom, A/V mute, Freeze, Volume, Split Screen, Timer, Document Camera and Power Off.
Enhanced Whiteboard Feature
Drawings and images on the projector’s digital whiteboard can be saved into a USB memory drive or printed via a network printer.
On-screen Control of Epson Document Camera
With greater compatibility to Epson document cameras*, you can adjust document camera functions like zoom, auto focus, image capture, rotation, video recording, etc. from the on-screen document camera control toolbar. These controls are enabled by just a HDMI connection. Now, you can easily control the document camera to achieve your ideal image without moving away from the presentation screen.
* Only applicable for ELPDC21/ELPDC13/ELPDC07 document cameras.
