Epson has launched a brand new app for iOS devices called iProjection. It’s designed to communicate with your Epson-branded projector. You can stream PDFs, JPEGS, and PNG files from your iOS device to a big projector. You can also pull them from Dropbox and Gmail over the cloud or your desktop via Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Keynote. All you need is the app, an Epson projector that is compatible (pdf link), and a network in which they are both connected to.
It’s available today for free from the App store though, obviously, the projector is sold separately.
