Epson’s Laser Projectors Display Innovative Applications at Regional Laser Projection Showcase 2019
SINGAPORE, 9 January 2018 – Epson’s laser projectors were creatively deployed in innovative applications at the global tech giant’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase at the Shangri-La hotel, and in a projection mapping performance at the Museum Siam in Bangkok, Thailand on 8 January 2019.
Epson’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase 2019
Held at the Shangri-La hotel, Epson’s latest laser projectors were showcased in a variety of environments at the event, highlighting the creative ways projectors can be deployed to enhance collaboration and improve productivity at work, as well as create new experiences for play.
A fashion designer workshop, a production room, a retail showroom and a staff lounge are some of the showcases that highlighted the versatility and innovative use of applications using the interactive and ultra-short throw capabilities of the projectors.
Fashion design made easy with the Epson Moverio smart glasses
For instance, a fashion designer is able to easily communicate and receive feedback from the corporate team through the Epson Moverio smart glasses and KDDI Augmented Reality Recognition software remotely. Following that, teams are also able to provide feedback on the designs through annotating on an ultra-wide 177-inch interactive panoramic screen, consisting of two EB-1470Ui projectors via video conferencing.
A streamlined production showroom workflow is demonstrated on site
The production showroom demonstrates how the designs are printed on an apron. Designers or users are able to work on their design through a customised app on tablets using customised designs and templates. They can then view how it looks like on an apron through a projection from the LightScene laser projector, before sending to print on the digital textile printer that prints out in minutes. The LightScene projector uses colours and shape filters to mask the projection for a seamless viewing experience.
Retail displays can be further elevated with the Epson LightScene Accent Lighting Laser Projectors
In the retail showroom, an interactive virtual fitting room featuring an ultra-short throw interactive laser projector enables customers to try on different clothing designs projected on them before purchasing.
Stunning visual effects with the EB-L610U laser projector
In the staff lounge showroom that mimics the workplace environment , employees are invited to relax at the bar counter with interactive visual effects, with the EB-L610U laser projector enabling downward tilting installation. They can also work out on a bike in a health cave with different landscape scenes projected by the sleek LightScene projector. They can also watch the big screen with the EH-LS100 ultra short throw home laser projector which projects up to 100-inches with a throw distance of 26cm.
Through these innovative applications, companies are able to imagine how Epson’s laser projectors can be utilised to improve their workflow and to bring new value to their businesses.
Projection Mapping on the façade of the Museum of Siam
Utilising two units of Epson’s brightest laser projectors, the EB-L25000U together with the ELPLU05 lenses, the projection mapping on Siam Museum weaves a brilliant visual tapestry of Thai culture, in a stunning outdoor projection display. Designed for installation flexibility, the EB-L25000U delivers 25,000 lumens of colour and white brightness at a contrast ratio of more than 2,500,000:1.
