Epson’s laser projectors were creatively deployed in innovative applications at Epson’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase and in a projection mapping performance at Siam Museum on 8 January 2019. Here Epson’s latest laser projectors were displayed in a variety of environments at the showcase, highlighting the creative ways projectors can be used to enhance work and play.

In the fashion designer workshop, a fashion designer can communicate and receive feedback from the corporate team through the Moverio smart glasses and KDDI Augmented Reality Recognition software remotely. The team is able to give feedback on the designs through annotating on an ultra-wide 177-inch interactive panoramic screen, consisting of two EB-1470Ui projectors via video conferencing.

The production showroom shows how the designs are printed on an apron. Designers or users are able to work on their design through tablets using a customized app, and can view how it looks on an apron through a projection from the LightScene laser projector, before sending to print on the digital textile printer that prints out in minutes. The LightScene projector uses filters to mask the projection for a seamless viewing experience.

The retail showroom has an interactive virtual fitting room utilizing an ultra-short throw interactive laser projector letting customers try on different clothing designs projected on them before purchasing.

In the staff lounge showroom, employees are invited to relax at the bar counter with interactive visual effects, with the EB-L610U laser projector allowing downward tilting installation. Staff can work out on a bike with different sceneries projected by the LightScene projector.  They can also watch the big screen with the EH-LS100 ultra short throw home laser projector which projects up to 100-inches with a throw distance of 26cm.

It’s through these applications that companies are now able to imagine how Epson’s laser projectors can be integrated to improve their workflow and to bring new value to both the business and the customers.

Taking advantage of two units of Epson’s brightest laser projectors, the EB-L25000U together with the ELPLU05 lenses, the projection mapping on Siam Museum weaves a brilliant visual tapestry of Thai culture, in an outdoor projection display. Designed for easy installment, the EB-L25000U delivers 25,000 lumens of color and white brightness at a contrast ratio of more than 2,500,000:1.

Of course, this isn’t all that Epson did in partnership with the Siam Museum. They also lent out their projectors for use in the museum exhibits. Epson’s high brightness projectors were used to help engage visitors and bring Thai culture and history to life. 

In the first room displaying the history of Thailand, 3 Epson projectors were used to help tell a narrative with lighting, music and hydraulic movement of blocks in a 15-minute story. 

The second room shares on the key concepts of Thainess – Nation, religion, and king. Visitors are to get cubes tagged with QR codes and fit them in slots to reveal the puzzle related to Thai national institutions and religion on screen.

Images showing the development of Thailand’s education are shown on the wall of the third room, showing the development of the classroom. Projections in a classroom allow for bigger display size, and this ensures that every student at every corner can read even the smaller details so they can learn more effectively.

In the last room is an innovative showcase of Thai cuisine, visitors can play with empty plates fitted with QR codes. A Thai dish along with its story would be projected onto the table when visitors place the different plates on the table. The system is integrated to recognize the QR code and project the related information.
