Espon PowerLite Pilot

Epson announced the PowerLite Pilot Connection and Control Box, a solution that offers extensive control of multimedia sources connected to Epson's wall-mounted short-throw and ultra short-throw classroom projectors, according to the company. The PowerLite Pilot gives teachers one convenient place to connect and manage audio and video sources such as computers, DVD players, iPods, and more, simplifying projector operation and cable management, Epson officials said.

In conjunction with the Pilot, Epson said it is offering two optional accessories—a wireless pendant microphone and external speakers—designed to provide an integrated classroom control and sound enhancement solution.

"The PowerLite Pilot makes it easy for teachers to connect and manage the wide range of multimedia devices that can be used with Epson short-throw and ultra short-throw projectors," said Sara Kim, associate product manager for Epson America, in a statement. "Additionally, the optional speakers and wireless microphone complete the system by providing a powerful combination for today's classrooms."

The PowerLite Pilot is a wall-mountable box with large buttons for easy operation and a cable cover that creates a clean, organized look to help avoid clutter. The control box is designed to mount on the wall next to the image, making it easily accessible to educators and enabling them to change sources or adjust volume with the press of a button, thus eliminating the need for a projector remote control, Epson officials said. The various input/output connections available include: HDMI, two VGA (computer 1 and 2) connectors with corresponding audio (inputs/outputs), S-Video with audio (inputs/outputs), AUX audio (for use with devices such as an iPod), USB Type A, USB Type B, and record out. The PowerLite Pilot also allows the selection of audio mute and volume adjustment for the optional speakers and microphone.

The PowerLite Pilot will be available at the end of June for $249. The optional speakers will be available for $149 and the optional wireless microphone will be available for $449. All three will also be available through Epson's Brighter Futures program.
