on

Epson has added 12 new models to its consumer projector range, offering customers expanded features at accessible prices. 

For home cinema and entertainment enthusiasts, the Epson EH-TW610, EH-TW650, EH-TW5400, EH-TW5600 and EH-TW5650 offer some standout features included within the range: the addition of lens shift (EH-TW5600 and EH-TW5650), miracast and screen-mirroring (EH-TW5650) and built-in Wi-Fi (EH-TW610, EH-TW650). For an immersive experience, movie lovers will appreciate detail enhancement and frame interpolation (EH-TW5400, EH-TW5600 and EH-TW5650), providing more fluid action and reducing motion blur in fast moving screens, resulting in smoother and sharper images.

The latest models also offer a balance of home and work needs, with the Epson EB-S05, EB-X05, EB-W05, EB-U05, EB-S41, EB-X41 and EB-W41. These projectors offer a range of resolutions, optional Wi-Fi and extras like a compact carry case (EB-S41, EB-X41, EB-W41).

The projectors  retail at between R11 999 and R12 999, depending on the model,

“From family and friends to business colleagues and clients, the latest range of projectors is sure to get everyone’s attention,” says Timothy Thomas, Epson South Africa’s consumer sales manager. “With expansive displays reaching up to 3000 inches, the large screen size is matched by its quality with Epson’s 3LCD technology making the display up to three times brighter than competitor products.”

Producing an equally high White and Colour Light Output from 2,500 to 3,600 lumens, 3LCD technology ensures a well-balanced image, delivering exceptionally bright yet colourful images, with clear details, even in sunny rooms. The high contrast ratio produces defined shadows and deep blacks.

All models are easy to set up and offer keystone correction to position the image. The EH-TW5600 and EH-TW5650 also come with a 1.6x zoom and vertical lens shift, for an ever faster and more refined set up. Accessing content is fuss free with a single (EB-S05, EB-X05, EB-W05, EBS41, EB-X41, EB-W41) or double HDMI input (EH-TW610, EH-TW650, EH-TW5400, EH-TW5600, EHTW5650, EB-U05) for connecting DVD players, games consoles and more.

“Thanks to the incredibly long lamp life, the projectors offer up to 15 years’ worth of entertainment,” says Thomas. “This means they’re a long-term, affordable and hassle-free solution for anyone’s projection needs.”

The Epson EH-TW610, EH-TW650, EH-TW5400, EH-TW5600, EH-TW5650, EB-S05, EB-S05, EB-X05, EB-W05, EBS41, EB-X41 and EB-W41 will be available in South Africa at leading retailers from May 2018.

Taxify enters Google Maps

A recent update to Taxify now uses Google Maps which allows users to identify their drivers, find public transport and search for billing options.

People planning their travel routes using Google Maps will now see a Taxify icon in the app, in addition to the familiar car, public transport, walking and billing options.

Taxify started operating in South Africa in 2016 and as of October 2018 operates in seven South African cities – Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni, Tshwane, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Polokwane.

Once riders have searched for their destination and asked the app for directions, Google Maps shares the proximity of cars on the Taxify platform, as well as an estimated fare for the trip.

If users see that taking the Taxify option is their best bet, they can simply tap on the ‘Open app’ icon, to complete the process of booking the ride. Customers without the app on their device will be prompted to install Taxify first.

This integration makes it possible for users to evaluate which of the private, public or e-hailing modes of transport are most time-efficient and cost-effective.

“This integration with Google Maps makes it so much easier for users to choose the best way to move around their city,” says Gareth Taylor, Taxify’s country manager for South Africa. “They’ll have quick comparisons between estimated arrival times for the different modes of transport, as well as fares they can expect to pay, which will help save both time and money,” he added.

Taxify rides in Google Maps are rolling out globally today and will be available in more than 15 countries, with South Africa being one of the first countries to benefit from this convenient service.
