Epson recently received major recognition for four of its products at the last prestigious iF Design Awards, including awards for the company’s various printing and projection equipment.
A projector, wireless presentation dongle, spectrophotometer and printer were recognized for meeting a range of criteria, including ease of use, sustainability and aesthetics. The iF Design Award, which originated in Germany, has been highlighting innovative design for industrial products since 1953. In 2022 alone, the jury consisted of 132 design experts who assessed 11,000 entries from 57 countries and regions around the world.
One of Epson’s award winners was the EH-LS12000B home projector. A 4K projector capable of projecting an image up to 300 inches uses a new laser light source designed to create a home theater experience even in well-lit rooms.
Next is the ELPWP10, a wireless presentation device designed for easy sharing of multiple screens simultaneously. By connecting a transmitter to your PC and clicking an icon, you can view up to four PC displays simultaneously on one large screen, e.g. a projector or television. It’s good for hosting shared meetings so you can easily see each other’s devices.
Another winner of Epson’s iF Design Award is the SD-10 spectrophotometer. At the core, a spectrophotometer measures light and quantifies the light absorption of a substance. The SD-10 is small and digitizes color, which is usually a time-consuming practice when printing manually.
Finally, the fourth recognized device from Epson was the Monna Lisa ML-64000 digital textile printer. It can print directly onto fabrics up to 3.6 meters wide, suitable for clothing printing. As noted on the iF Design Award website, the Monna Lisa will help reduce environmental impact by shifting the industry from analogue to digital printing.
Of Epson’s iF Design Award 2022 recipients, I’m most impressed with the ELPWP10 wireless presenter. For those back in the office, it’s a smart idea for team meetings and seems like a great way to work together on shared projects.
