The Epson PowerLite 1965 is a high brightness (5000 lumen rating), XGA (1024 X 768) LCD projector that has just about every feature a presenter could want, all at a price below $2000. The 1965 includes connections for a variety of video sources, including VGA, HDMI, composite video, PC-free USB and network presentation.
When it comes to network presentation, the 1965 is both wired and wireless (with included module) network connectable, allowing for control of one or more networked projectors, as well as monitoring the projector’s status, scheduled maintenance and problem notification remotely. In addition to the monitoring functions, there is the ability to allow others on the network to display images and video from their computers, even simultaneously using the 1965’s split and multi screen capability.
For medical school training and medical imaging presentations, Epson has included a DICOM simulation picture mode. This is used to provide a clearer picture of X-ray images (see details in the Special Features section).
As usual for Epson, the 1965 is one of a family of five projectors. These include (from bottom to top in features and price) the 1940W – an WXGA (1280 X 800) projector rated at 4200 lumens, the 1960 – an XGA projector rated at 5000 lumens, the 1945W – a WXGA projector rated at 4200 lumens, the 1955 – an XGA projector rated at 4500 lumens and the 1965 – the subject of this review. The 1940W and 1960 projectors do not have the wireless networking and multi-PC projection capability of the other three.
