The Epson PowerLite U50 has wireless sharing capabilities! That’s plural. The Wireless Module is an optional wireless dongle that allows the projector to communicate with a variety of devices over Wi-Fi. The Wireless LAN Module is available for $99 on Epson’s website. Once this is set up, there are easy-to-follow instructions in the User Manual on how to connect external devices, which allows for screen sharing in a variety of forms.
The U50 is iProjection compatible – Epson iProjection is an app that can be installed on phones, tablets, PCs and Macs, to wirelessly connect up to 50 devices simultaneously. That means students and teachers alike can project images, documents, videos, etc., for all to see. The PowerLite U50 also has two-way content sharing, which allows content to be shared from the projector to connected devices. The teacher can control which devices’ screens are displayed on the projector, and vice versa. When the content is shared to a student’s device, the student can then make changes and notes and send back to the projector. Talk about bringing learning into the future (or should I say, the Now).
