The EMP-400W is capable of projecting a 60-inch widescreen image from 65cm. It can be mounted on a boom attached to a wall, allowing the presenter to stand close to the image and interact with the whiteboard without shadows or lamp glare in the presenter's eyes. The projector comes with Epson's high precision lens, which delivers widescreen (16:10) projection that can fill screens regardless of aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9 and 16:10). The lamp has an 1800 ANSI lumen brightness rating and lasts for up to 4000 hours. Users can connect several EMP-400Ws via a LAN, and operate each individually from a remote PC. If a lamp or temperature anomaly is detected, a notification will be sent via email to the PC. When used in a corporate or school environment, each projector may be turned on or off via the network and monitored from a central facilities management office.
