“Auckland Museum was given a demo of some new Epson projectors by a sales representative from one of our purchasing partners,” said Liam Brown, Auckland Museum’s manager of audio visual. “The Epson products far outperformed the previous brand we have predominantly used at the Museum and thus, we began using Epson for all of our new projects going forward.”
Auckland Museum purchased projectors from almost all of Epson’s ranges including their large venue L series through to the smaller EB series and several from the Epson EV series.
“The new projectors had to be cost effective, sustainable and reliable, Brown said. “They also had to fit some specific size and weight requirements. I’m happy to say the Epson projectors did all of the above.
“The wide range of budgets, installation limitations and image quality requirements mean that we have to select each projector for its purpose. We use our new Epson projectors for everything from projection mapping in galleries to high quality cinema-style in our auditorium and everything in between including temporary exhibitions and event use.”
Epson’s projector technology has given Auckland Museum an edge it never previously enjoyed, Brown said.
“Epson’s ever-shrinking form-factor to make projection more discreet but still packing in more features has been impressive over the past few years as our projects and use-cases have developed. In terms of Epson’s products, service and support overall, we give them 10/10 so far. We have had great support, great pricing and have built a great relationship with some of the Epson NZ team.”
Auckland Museum tells the story of New Zealand, its place in the Pacific and its people. The Museum is a war memorial for the province of Auckland and holds one of New Zealand's top three heritage libraries. It has pre-eminent Māori and Pacific collections, significant natural history resources and major social and military history collections, as well as decorative arts and pictorial collections.
