Manila, 18 April 2017– Epson has been named as the number one projector brandworldwide for 16 consecutive years by Futuresource Consulting[1]. The milestone demonstrates the company's continuing market leadership and success in the visual imaging industry.

The most recent findings from Futuresource indicate that Epson has the largest market share for 500-lumen and above for projectors worldwide, at 35.5% for 2016, an increase from 31.9% in 2015. For the home projectors segment, Epson has also achieved the largest market share for 500-lumen and above for home projectors worldwide, which stands at 39.9% for 2016, an increase from 34.8% in 2015.

Epson's worldwide market share for projectors have increased steadily over the last 16 years to maintain its continued dominance.Within Southeast Asia, Epson continues to maintain market leadership, with market share increasing to 33.6% in 2016, up from 27.3% in 2015.

At the heart of Epson's projectors is 3LCD technology, which enables Epson projectors to deliver the most vibrant and true-to-life images with up to 3 times higher colour brightness compared to 1-chip DLP projectors in the market.In contrast to 3-chip 3LCD projectors, 1-chip DLP projectors use a rotating color wheel that spins at a rapid speed, only displaying colors sequentially, which can result in color break-up or the "rainbow effect".

Its business projector range includes enterprise projectors for classroom and small and medium meeting rooms, to interactive projectors for education and enterprise sectors, as well as high brightness projectors for large venue installations, rentals and staging venues.

NatGeo premieres first-ever fully scripted series GENIUS tonight at 8PM

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PREMIERES FIRST-EVER FULLY SCRIPTED SERIES GENIUS​

FOX and National Geographic bring history to life with the launch of an original, fully scripted mini-series event exploring the 'man behind the mind' – Albert Einstein.

Genius premieres in the Philippines on Wednesday, April 26 at 8 p.m. on National Geographic​

Although his scientific achievements still inspire awe,
few know the full story of the 20th century's most brilliant icon Albert Einstein. National Geographic's new 10-part series GENIUS – the channel's first fully scripted series – explores Einstein's extraordinary professional achievements along with his passionate and complex personal relationships. The mini-series arrives in the Philippines, premiering on National Geographic on Wednesday, April 26, in the Philippines at 8 p.m.

With GENIUS, National Geographic is taking a revolutionary step to becoming an original content creator, ready for battle on the scripted TV landscape. GENIUS follows Einstein's journey from an imaginative thinker of humble origins, to fleeing the Nazis during World War II, to attaining global celebrity status for his scientific endeavors. National Geographic's first-ever fully scripted series reveals the untold story of the man behind the mind, delving into Einstein's happiness and heartbreak as he struggles to be a husband, a father, and a man of principle. Entertaining as well as educational, GENIUS will help viewers learn more about how Einstein unlocked the mysteries of the cosmos in a significant historical era spanning two World Wars.

A start-studded cast and behind-the-camera team join GENIUS. The fully scripted series stars world-famous Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush (The King's Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Einstein, while prestigious English actress Emily Watson (War Horse, The Theory of Everything) plays Einstein's second wife. The GENIUS executive production team includes the multi Oscar-winning team of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer; and Howard also makes his scripted television directorial debut with the first episode of GENIUS. Other GENIUS stars include familiar faces from Game of Thrones, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men and more.

 The series begins in Einstein's teenage years, when he argues with his father and drops out of school in Germany to go to University in Switzerland. Einstein encounters romance, political drama and unexpected personal struggles, but he manages to make a name for himself as a rising scientific mind. As relief at the end of World War I turns to fear at Europe's rising tide of anti-Semitism, Einstein seeks sanctuary in the United States. Here, he struggles to balance his identity as a lifelong pacifist and a remarkably talented scientist who is the only one in the world potentially capable of stopping the rise of Hitler.

Lucien Harrington, SVP of Marketing & Communications for FOX Networks Group in Asia, says, "GENIUS is an evolution of National Geographic programing. Already the global leader in premium science, adventure and exploration programing, National Geographic is now firmly establishing itself as an original content creator bringing the best in education and entertainment to audiences in Asia and around the globe. We are delivering on the National Geographic renewed vision to take people one step to the edge of impossible and then, further. GENIUS is not only a global mini-series entertainment event – it is also a brand new way for National Geographic audiences to explore the past and learn the truth behind the legend of famous historical figures like Albert Einstein."

 

The "Everyday Genius" Contest

"I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious." – Albert Einstein

 Are geniuses born or made? Was Einstein destined from birth to become a brilliant scientist, or was his genius all down to hard work? To commemorate the launch of GENIUS, National Geographic is challenging viewers across Asia to harness the power of their minds and accelerate their genius.

 GENIUS is a National Geographic original scripted series produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Imagine Television and OddLot Entertainment. National Geographic is also partnering with the SNOW app, where users can use the face filter to look like Einstein.
