Multimedia projectors enable users to simulate large format displays in a small, portable package. The Epson PowerLite 732c creates a projected image size of between 30 and 300 diagonal inches at corresponding projection distances of between 3 and 40 feet. The projector is loaned in a carry case with a power cable, quick-setup guide, and 1 VGA cable. The projector accepts video inputs of VGA, RCA, and S-Video. If your device outputs video to a different connector, you will need to provide your own adapter to one of the accepted video inputs. Check for availability here.
