One of the things we are discovering at Mavidea is that even our customers don’t know all of the things that we do and can help them with. I usually tell people “If it is electronic and in your office, odds are pretty good that we can help you with it.”
Today, I wanted to give a quick plug for one of our vendors, Epson of America. We recommend Epson for all customer projectors. Epson has a projector that meets any need in the office at an affordable price. The Epson PowerLite 1771 is the one we use at Mavidea for doing presentations. It is lightweight, has a large, bright picture, and is extremely easy to use.
One of the deciding factors for using this projector was the ability to connect it to our laptop via a USB cable or over wireless with a USB dongle. It make it a lot easier to present when aren’t limited by the length of your cables! You can even send your presentation to it using an iPhone/iPad or Android phone/tablet. Oh, and when you are using it just around the office, it can connect to the wireless and pull files directly from the server so you don’t even need a computer connected. Cool!
The other Epson projector I’m excited about is the newly redesigned BrightLink Pro 1410Wi projector / interactive whiteboard. It is a ultra-short throw projector that can turn any whiteboard (up to 113 inches!) into an interactive screen.
I love the idea of being able to write on presentations on the fly and save the results, or just use our whiteboard like normal during a meeting and capture the results automatically. (Currently we take a picture with our cell-phone cameras and then someone attaches it to our notes.) I can see huge improvements when the Mavidea web team is showing customers design options and they can mark them up on them and make the changes later. It would definitely improve our processes.
If you have any questions on Epson, projectors, or other things Mavidea probably does to make your office life easier, just give us a call!
