Epson EB-U42 - High-resolution multimedia projector

The Epson EB-U42 offers excellent multimedia features for home and office thanks to its WUXGA resolution.

High Resolution

The Epson EB-U42 is a second generation compact WUXGA projector from Epson. It follows on from the popular Epson EB-U32. The WUXGA resolution has the advantage that it offers even more pixels than the Full HD resolution. Especially with presentations of high-resolution content and Excel spreadsheets this resolution shows its strengths. Another advantage is that it completely covers the Full HD resolution making it interesting for movies and football. Whether in the office or at home, in different areas, the Epson EB-U42 is well positioned.

Flexible alignment

When it comes to setup, the Epson EB-U42 offers good setup options. The 1.2x zoom provides reasonable flexibility and for the alignment of the image, a vertical and a horizontal keystone correction of +/- 30 degrees is available. Especially for mobile use it is a practical feature. The vertical correction is adjusted automatically while horizontal correction, is controlled by a slider on the device surface.

The Epson EB-U42 is well equipped for wireless image transmission. Thanks to its wireless interface, content from your smartphone, tablet or notebook can be sent wirelessly to the projector. You will need the Epson iProjection App (Mobile Devices) or the Easy MP Software for Notebooks (Windows & Mac). The wireless solution offers advantages especially for business applications but is less suitable for broadcasting videos. Photos, presentations and other, less data-heavy content can be easily transferred.

In addition to Wi-Fi is also available Miracast. Miracast (also known as screen sharing) provides the ability to send content from Miracast-enabled smartphones and tablets to the projector. This is possible in 1080p quality, which is not yet the case with the Epson WLAN function. Thus, for example, you can stream video content directly to the projector. For using any video content in your presentation, the EB-U42 Miracast option is the optimal wireless solution.

MHL

One of the two HDMI ports of the EB-U42 is MHL-capable. It lets you connect an MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet directly to the projector and transfer content using an MHL cable. It also allows the use of MHL wireless adapters, which are powered via the HDMI port.

Split-Screen

The Epson EB-U42 enables the display in split-screen mode. You can use two different sources to play one picture signal at a time and display the contents side by side. This feature is especially useful in meetings.

Other features

Other features include the projector's 3-in-1 USB display. This allows the playback of picture, sound and control signal via USB cable. If no conventional signal cable is available at the moment, it is a handy feature. Another handy feature is the AV Mute slider, with which you can hide the picture and the sound and reactivate it in a short time. In addition, it protects the lens while travelling. The EB-U42 offers a 2watt speaker for sound output.

Specs

The LCD projector uses the 1920 x 1200 pixels of the WUXGA resolution in 16:10 format. Its light output is at a good level with 3600 lumens. This also applies to the contrast of 15,000: 1. In the Epson EB-U42 review, it came out particularly well in the presentation of images.

Connections

Here the Epson EB-U42 is well positioned. It has two HDMI inputs, one of which is MHL-capable. There is also a VGA input and an RCA video input. A USB A and a USB B port are also available. The internal speaker is fed via stereo RCA.

Delivery

In the box with the projector you will find a VGA cable, a power cable, a remote control with batteries and a manual.

Conclusion

Finally, it can be said that Epson produced a worthy succesror to the EB-U32 with the EB-U42. Thanks to the stronger light output, you can now work even more independently. Its feature diversity also offers many advantages and the Epson EB-U42 price is very appealing.
