Epson says their success spans segments. For the enterprise segment, improved ease of use, portability and efficiency in Epson projectors for business meetings has made a difference. Projectors with high functionality, thin and lightweight form factor, and with automatic screen adjustment features, all at attractive price points, have made Epson the preferred choice with corporates. For the education segment, Epson provides value for educators with products that make it easy-to-understand and easy-to-teach thereby making students more interested in learning. Epson does this by encouraging the adoption of proprietary Epson functionality such as short throw and interactive projectors. For the home segment, Epson has leveraged the high contrast and superb image quality of their home theatre projectors to offer enhanced movie and sports viewing capability to enthusiasts.
