For more than two decades Epson has maintained its position as the world's No. 1 supplier* of HTPS panels, the core devices at the heart of 3LCD projectors. It has led the industry by developing and providing technologies that boost power and performance.
The expansion of the 3LCD projector market has for a long time been driven primarily by enterprise demand for business presentations. Today, 3LCD projectors are widely used in a variety of market spaces. In the home theater segment, projectors offer a compelling movie-viewing experience with 3D and high contrast capable of producing jet-black shadows, while in the education segment, projectors facilitate effective learning at school. Projectors also offer effective support for events in the commercial segment by delivering lectures, art and entertainment in large spaces. These applications just scratch the surface of the potential of projection technology. In light of this, the market for projectors is expected to grow nearly 10% every year. In India the projector market is growing even more rapidly and Epson was recently ranked the No. 1 projector brand in the country
"Epson is the leader in the development and manufacture of the HTPS panels," said Mr. Samba Moorthy, Director - Sales & Marketing, Epson India, "Going forward, we will further cement our position as the market leader by enhancing and expanding our lineup with products that leverage our unique technologies to meet specific market needs."
