Epic’s projection screens are sleek and attractive as well as functional and versatile. Their free-standing silent projector screens can be utilized in many venues and have a very small footprint. A top quality, impressive “stand out from the crowd” laser projector was needed to make the event a show stopper.

The Optoma ZU660 was selected as the best laser projector for the job was due to its bright 6,500 lumens, WUXGA resolution and features to include DuraCore technology with a 20,000-hour lamp-less laser light source enclosed in an IP5X certified optical engine. This ensures reliability and minimal maintenance during its lifetime resulting in low total cost of ownership. Designed to suit different installation environments, the ZU660 includes 360-degree and portrait projection, 24/7 operation capabilities and 6 optional lenses ranging from 0.36~5.5 throw ratio.
