Epson iProjection is a new-ish app (released in January) that lets you do some wireless presenting from an iPad (or iPhone or iPod Touch) to networked Epson projectors.
I don’t recall seeing any equivalent apps for the iPad / iOS, though admittedly I’ve not been scouting for them either. Here’s the list of notable features for the app:
What it enables you to do:
1. Display documents loaded in the Epson iProjection app using your Epson projector
2. Display images stored in your iOS "Photo" library
3. Use the built-in projector remote control feature to control input sources, AV mute, freeze, audio settings, and more
4. Send files from your email or cloud storage apps to iProjection app
File formats and Activities supported and not supported
Epson iProjection supports the following file formats:
– Microsoft® Word® (.doc, .docx, Office 2003 or later)
– Microsoft® PowerPoint® (.ppt, .pptx, Office 2003 or later)
– Microsoft® Excel® (.xls, .xlsx, Office 2003 or later)
– Keynote (.key)
– Adobe PDF (.pdf, PDF 1.7, Acrobat 8 compatible or later)
Also supports cloud file services such as Dropbox or email accounts (duplicated files only).
And activities that are not supported:
– Video playback
– PowerPoint and Keynote animations
The App Store page for Epson iProjection lists a number of supported projectors, and offers a link to a page that should list all supported projectors. Unfortunately the link is broken and the Epson site is kind of a nightmare to navigate, so I was unable to find details for any of the projectors listed.
It’s good to see an app of this kind for wireless presentations to projectors, though a little disappointing to see the items that are not supported.
If any of you have had a chance to try the app out I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
Here’s an App Store link for Epson iProjection; it’s a free app.
