Epson America, Inc. (Epson America) has launched the Brighter Futures Graduation Program that gives schools, districts and universities a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to trade in older Epson projectors for recycling while earning discounts on newer, more replacement models. The program allows schools to save more energy, time and money by upgrading older projectors. Currently, eligible Epson projectors are offered at a $25 to $50 discount through the Graduation Program.

“At Epson, we feel it’s very important to be environmentally conscious, and our new Brighter Futures Graduation Program gives educators a great way to do that while helping to bring better and brighter technology into their classrooms,” said Heather Litus Johnston, product manager, K-12 Education Marketing, Epson America. “Our newer projectors not only deliver outstanding performance and features, but they’re also more energy efficient than even our last generation of products, which is a key focus in our design and development.”

All new Epson projectors offer long lamp life with the company’s E-TORL lamp technology, which offers more lumens per watt than traditional projector lamps with similar lumens specifications. Using E-TORL technology, lamps can last up to 6,000 hours in economy mode and replacement E-TORL lamps cost up to $200 less than competing replacement lamps. Furthermore, newer Epson projectors enable schools to take advantage of other built-in features and enhancements such as closed captioning, 10 W speakers, microphone inputs, optional wireless capabilities, newer 3LCD technology, networking capabilities, and more.

Eligible projectors include the PowerLite 83+, PowerLite 822+, PowerLite 400W, PowerLite 410W, PowerLite 84, PowerLite 85, PowerLite 825 and PowerLite 826W. Additional Epson projector models including the PowerLite 1715, 1735W, 6110, G5000 and the PowerLite Pro G5150, G5200W and G5350 are available through the program on an as-quoted basis.

Epson’s Brighter Futures program is a sales and support initiative available to schools. Designed to help educators select and implement the best projection products for their classrooms, while making the most of their budgets, Brighter Futures offers special pricing, extended Epson limited warranty coverage for three years, dedicated education account managers and toll-free technical support for all Epson projectors.
