LONG BEACH, Calif., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson® EX9200 Pro high color brightness, wireless projectors were front and center at MacTech's annual conference, held in Los Angeles Nov. 4-6, 2015. Conference organizers chose Epson's latest WUXGA wide screen wireless projector for its high color and white lumen ratings, allowing projected content to shine in both breakout and large conference rooms attended by Apple IT pros, enterprise, consultants and techs. Presenters were also able to take advantage of easy setup features including vertical and horizontal keystone correction for flexible placement. Presented by MacTech Magazine, a monthly publication focused on Apple technology, the annual MacTech Conference featured a series of joint sessions, two concurrent sessions, labs and forums.
The EX9200 Pro is an ultra-powerful wireless projector delivering 3,200 lumens of color brightness and 3,200 lumens of white brightness1, and is powered by 3LCD technology. MacTech chose the EX9200 Pro projectors due to their high image quality, high color brightness, versatility, and their ability to display presentations featuring charts, graphics and video for discussions and breakout sessions attended by anywhere from 10 to 75 people. The projector includes HDMI® and MHL support2, as well as easy wireless setup, including Epson's exclusive quick connect with on-screen QR code for easy access to content from smartphones and tablets – users can simply turn the projector on, use the free Epson iProjection™ app3 to scan the on-screen QR code, and be instantly connected to share content. Additionally presenters were able to project content from laptops, smartphones and tablets wirelessly, allowing them to move more freely about the room.
"MacTech Conference featured a wide range of breakout sessions in several rooms with multiple presenters and varying input sources, so it was crucial for us to have projection solutions that were easy to set up and featured flexible connectivity options to ensure smooth connection transitions between presentations," said Neil Ticktin, editor-in-chief/publisher, MacTech Magazine. "The Epson EX9200 Pro projectors fit the bill perfectly. The flexibility of handling direct wired connections, ability to display content wirelessly, as well as iProjection quick connect capabilities gave us confidence in handling the stream of speakers and devices using these projectors. Best yet, the EX9200 Pro has impressively high color brightness and sharp image quality, easily handling a variety of room sizes and shapes while ensuring attendees could clearly see all content."
"The EX9200 Pro is a versatile, pro-quality projector delivering sharp images, high resolution and high color brightness, ideal for small- to medium-sized businesses," said Eric Uaje, associate product manager, Projectors, Epson. "MacTech Conference is just one example of the range of applications for which the projector can be used, and we're pleased the conference organizers' needs were met due to EX9200 Pro's connectivity options, easy setup and wireless presenting features."
The EX9200 Pro ($7994) is available now through major retailers and directly on Epson.com. The projector comes with a one-year limited warranty that includes the Road Service projector replacement program with projector exchange in one business day with paid shipping, and a 90-day limited lamp warranty.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance
The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society for Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today's high definition content, presenters can display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. For more information, visit http://www.colorlightoutput.com.
