Overview

Epson LIGHTSCENE_EV-100_HO

The Epson LightScene EV-100 is a commercial laser projector designed for retail and marketing applications, measuring 19.4 inches tall, 24 inches deep, and 7 inches wide and weighing just over 15.2 pounds.

The EV-100 and EV-105 are white and black versions of the same projector. These projectors are compact considering they can deliver 2,000 lumens and its spotlight design easily blends into most surroundings.

The EV100 is designed to be installed on a wall or ceiling using the included mounting bracket. There is an optional floor stand (ELPPMB55W) available which allows placement on a flat surface and is useful for temporary or portable setups. Epson offers an optional track mount (ELPMB54W) as well to make that type of installation easier.

The EV-100 is made up of two components, a projector assembly and a power supply unit. The power supply unit is where the power plug is located along with the power button, IR receiver and projector status lights.

Like a traditional track light, the EV-100’s projector assembly is attached to the power supply unit via an adjustable ball joint. Once the EV-100 is mounted loosening the ball joint screw allows the projection assembly to be rotated 360° horizontally and 90° vertically. You can also tilt the image 90° in either direction. Once the projector assembly is properly positioned, just tighten the ball joint screw to prevent any additional movement.

Inputs and Connectors

The inputs and connectors are located on the rear of the projector assembly. There is a single HDMI, an SD Card slot, Ethernet port and one USB-A (1200 mA power supply connection only). There is also a 3.5 mm mini stereo audio jack to connect an external audio system.
While there are only a limited amount of inputs or connections, the EV-100 is designed for application where additional connection probably are probably unnecessary.
