The Espon EMP-1715 Projector Can Go Uber-Widescreen… With Some Help

epson emp 1715

By David Ponce

Recently released to the Japanese market, the Epson EMP-1715 (along with the 1700, 1705 and 1710) seems like a regular with a 400:1 contrast ratio and 2,700 ANSI lumens. However, it is possible to connect four of them to one computer, to create an array of the user’s choosing. It’s even possible to put them side by side, to create a giant 16:3 display, even though each individual screen goes out at a 4:3 ratio with an XGA (1024 x 768) resolution.

It’s not clear what sort of requirements this sort of setup would put on your graphic card, nor whether Windows can display 16:3 in the first place, though we’re assuming that bundled software is probably taking care of the pesky details. One detail that isn’t pesky however, is the price: $3,250 for the EMP-1715 alone.

    Nothing really special here its like having multiple monitors just using projectors instead
    can use any projector to do that.

    I don’t think it’s anything having an extended desktop on windows doesn’t do.
