LONG BEACH, Calif., Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced it received four rAVe 2017 Best of InfoComm Awards.

"We literally go to every single booth at InfoComm and collectively pick the best of the best we see on the show floor."
The rAVe Best of InfoComm Awards honor the top products showcased at InfoComm across multiple categories, including the following products from Epson:
The BrightLink Pro 1470Ui is the world's first 3LCD interactive ultra-short throw laser display.
