Epson Pro G Series Turns Heads at InfoComm 2013

Like many vendor booths at InfoComm, Epson set theirs up to showcase products capable of great visuals.  One standout was its PowerLite Pro G6150, a model tailor-made for retail clothing stores. As demonstrated, it is able to project images on fully dimensional objects. In this particular set up, those objects were store mannequins, and the images projected onto them a variety of apparel. Another PowerLite model on display has improved video processing and can wrap images without distortion on a corner wall.

Epson BrightLink 1410WiAnother great Epson product I saw up close is the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi short-throw projector. Epson calls it their “meeting room productivity tool.”

It turns any surface into an interactive whiteboard. You can create a new file or annotate an existing one. When done, use the email, print or save function to share the content. The 1410Wi doesn’t require a direct connection from a laptop. Copy your files to a flash drive, plug it into a wall unit, and presto — the information is instantly carried to the projector.

Liberty AV Enables HDMI Compatibility

While at InfoComm this week, I visited the Liberty AV Solutions booth and learned about a cool little product that came together because of a project being worked on by AVI-SPL’s Seattle office.

The client’s users were unable to easily connect their devices (such as a laptop) to an HDMI connection in their meeting rooms because of compatibility issues. A product was created in response by working with Liberty AV Solutions. That solution is its HDMI Adapter Ring.

The ring includes five  HDMI adapters, each of which enable a different type connection to feed into HDMI. Those adapters include:

  • DisplayPort Plug (Male) to HDMI Jack (Female)
  • Mini DisplayPort Plug (Male) to HDMI Jack (Female)
  • Mini HDMI (C) Plug (Male) to HDMI Jack (Female)
  • Micro HDMI (D) Plug (Male) to HDMI Jack (Female)
  • DVI-D Plug (Male) to HDMI Jack (Female)

Liberty AV’s adapter ring is compatible with standard size and micro HDMI cables, and can be upgraded to add, remove or replace adapters.
