Epson PowerLite L610W Laser Projector Review – Special Features: Split Screen, Wireless Display Technology, Instant On/Off, PC Free Projection, Versatile Connectivity and Control, Network Control
The Epson PowerLite L610W comes equipped with Epson’s easy to use Split Screen capability, providing a handy feature for teachers & presenters who want to get creative with multiple sources. As previously reported in my PowerLite 990U and 108 reviews, you can easily connect and display two sources, and customize the experience as best as you need. If needed, one screen can be made larger than the other. You can shift both screens up toward the top of the screen or just leave it in the middle. You can swap the screens very quickly thanks to the fast acting menu. And lastly, you can quickly pull up a menu to choose which audio source you want to hear, so you can switch back and forth with your sound very effectively as needed.
Using a wireless module sold separately, the Epson PowerLite L610W can connect up to 50 of your favorite mobile devices like Chromebooks, iOS, Android, and PCs. For the professor or professional in mind for this projector, this means ultimate engagement with your audience if you so choose. You can also display any such device on your screen and even simultaneously display up to 4 screens of mobile devices. For the teacher and presenter that aims to make their presentation interactive, this is a feature you will want to learn to utilize. Keeping your viewers engaged throughout your presentation.
This deserves its own special features highlight perhaps more than any. It appears there are other brands and Epsons out there that include this feature but since I am only reviewing this projector, I am only going to focus on the functionality of Epson’s Instant On/Off feature. It’s fantastic, it works like it says. I hit power and my picture is up in moments, two clicks to power down and the projector is off and silent faster than you’d ever typically expect. Is it a necessary component? Of course not! But it sure does make things easier, especially during those moments where you might be in a rush to get an image onscreen and you just didn’t have the projector on beforehand for whatever reason. This is a big thumbs up from me.
Use the USB port to connect a thumb drive or digital camera and use the projector with no PC. You can control a presentation directly from the remote on the L610W. The user interface to get this done is simple and straightforward that this option makes for quick viewing in a pinch well within your reach.
The L610 W Supports a full range of inputs, including HDBaseT, 3G-SDI, and is compatible with Crestron RoomView, AMX, Extron XTP, Control4, and Art-Net for easy integration on any platform, whatever suits your environment best.
Using RJ-45 or wireless connectivity, you can implement a remote projector management system across your entire school or organization. The ability to cast pertinent info to all necessary places and people, as needed from one central location, is always an effective communication tool for any leader to utilize.
