Cloud-based projector fleet management tool announced.
Epson has announced Epson Projector Management Connected (EPMC), a new cloud enabled remote management tool for Epson projectors. With today’s hybrid work models and a greater prevalence of large fleets of projectors being used in schools, corporations and immersive environments, there is an industry need for a solution that enables easier, faster and more powerful management and control when remotely working with an immense number of projectors. Ideal for AV professionals, IT managers and systems integrators, this new service allows for managing, controlling, monitoring, and receiving critical notifications from projectors remotely.
“IT and tech support teams are demanding greater flexibility to manage and control increasingly complex systems,” said Chris Teguh, product manager, Large Venue Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Leveraging this new cloud-based solution can result in greater projector longevity and reduced downtime.”
Though most fleet management software requires the user to be working on a computer connected to the same network as all the projectors in the fleet, EPMC enables quick access to an unlimited number of projectors1 from any web browser anywhere, including mobile devices such as a tablet or smartphone.
- Simplifying projector fleet organisation with intuitive projector group management and monitoring
- Usage and error reporting that can be sent live or scheduled to authorised users at set intervals
- Troubleshooting actions remotely with basic controls like source switching or power control
- Ability to add an unlimited number of users with varying levels of access
With the ability to monitor projector usage in detail, end users can optimise the life of their fleet by maintaining or rotating projectors to take advantage of projectors in under-used rooms. Managers can schedule daily shut off times to reduce unwanted run time, while administrators can be notified of potential risks of shut down or upcoming maintenance requirements. With endless possibilities for optimisation, the free cloud-based service helps minimise downtime and ensures projectors are ready to display whenever and wherever needed.
