Gitex 2020: Epson showcases products to support social distancing in offices and schools

On show will be interactive display solutions, visualisers, printing services and work and home printers

At Gitex Technology Week 2020, Epson will showcase its range of products for businesses and education that also support the current need for social distancing.

This year’s demonstration areas, Sustainable Solutions for Business and Smart Solutions for Education, will give a flavour for how technology can deliver utility, as well as support the growing demand for sustainability.

As per Epson’s recent survey, 91 per cent of Middle East employees expect a change in the use of shared devices, including printers, as they return to the office. While it’s natural that people will be cautious about sharing products, simple software solutions such as Epson’s Print Admin mean that printers can be used without the need to touch buttons to retrieve prints.

Also, 89 per cent of those surveyed expect a higher use of green and sustainable technology, to improve the environmental and social impact of businesses post-COVID-19.

This year’s demonstration area will highlight the benefits of Epson’s Heat-free business inkjet technology which the company says enables its printer range to reduce energy consumption by up 95 per cent compared to laser printers – reducing both cost and CO2 emissions. The lack of heat also means there is no warmup time needed, ensuring fast first-page-out speeds. And fewer consumable parts mean less user intervention and fewer used consumables to store and dispose of.

Epson will also showcase solutions to enable schools and universities to deliver education for in-person, remote and hybrid learning.

Epson’s interactive display solutions for example, such as the Epson EB-1400 series, have scalable screen sizes of up to 155 inches. Being more spread out due to social distancing won’t impact any child’s ability to learn. Additionally, Epson’s visualisers allow for the live projection of 3D objects.

Printing at home is now more important than ever before. Epson’s EcoTank printers come with up to three years’ worth of ink in the box, which is enough to print up to 14,000 pages.
