Recycle the Old and Bring in the New With Epson

EPSON CANADA'S BRIGHTER FUTURES® GRADUATION PROGRAM OFFERS SCHOOLS FREE PROJECTOR RECYCLING AND DISCOUNTS ON NEW REPLACEMENTS

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 7, 2009) - Epson Canada Limited's newly launched Brighter Futures Graduation Program gives Canadian schools K-12 and post secondary institutions a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to recycle older Epson projectors(i) while earning discounts on newer, more state-of-the-art replacement models. The program runs from May 1 to August 31, 2009.

"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 North America. "Our newer projectors deliver outstanding performance and features, while being more energy efficient. This is a key focus in our design and development of next generation products."

The Epson Brighter Futures Graduation Program makes it possible for schools to save energy, time and money by upgrading older projectors. All new Epson projectors have 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.

The 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 and networking capabilities.

Eligible Epson projectors are available at a $25 - $50 discount through the Graduation Program. Projectors include the PowerLite 83+, PowerLite 822+ and PowerLite 400W. Educational institutions can contact their Epson account manager to receive price quotes on additional Epson projector models.

Epson's Brighter Futures® program is a unique 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.
