Epson iProjection – Wireless Projection iPad to Epson Projectors

Epson iProjection App

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)
– .JPG
– .PNG
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
– Mirroring

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.

  1. Dear Patrick,

    Thanks for your comments about iProjection. I was too excited to download it and then discovered that Keynote animations do not work! What a dissapointment!
    My question: is there any way to correct this? Do they have any other projectors which would support animations? Any other way to transmit wirelessly to projector?

    Thanks for the answer,

    1. I honestly don’t know much more about projectors and what’s possible in this area. You might want to speak to Epson.

      What I can suggest is that you might want to look towards an HDTV, Apple TV, and AirPlay Mirroring for more options and flexibility.

  2. The iProjection app is very limited in storing documents for projection. Pictures work OK.
    The 1776W projector “Quick” connection does NOT work as advertised. I’ve had mine for two weeks, and I still cannot get it to work.
