From the press release:
Both models achieve brightness ratings up to 2,000-ANSI lumens, while maintaining sleek, travel-friendly designs (7.6″D x 10.9″W x 2.7″H) that are not only slim and compact enough to carry in most briefcases or shoulder bags, but also include several connectivity options and quick and easy setup/shutdown capabilities.
High-Speed 802.11g WiFi Connectivity, LEAP-Enabled Security and PC-Free Presenting
The PowerLite 737c takes advantage of 802.11g internal WiFi technology, enabling users to upload or run presentations wirelessly at frame rates up to two to five times faster than 802.11b. Whether transferring data via 802.11 “b” or “g,” Epson’s unique and proprietary algorithm allows for fast wireless streaming of video content. Like its sibling model — the Epson PowerLite 745c — the PowerLite 737c comes with an 802.11b/g card. These two models are the industry’s only projectors to offer wireless compatibility with Apple’s Keynote software and are also the only projectors of their kind to offer both LEAP-authentication and WEP/WPA for secure, encrypted wireless transmissions. Epson’s proprietary firmware also gives presenters the ability to run PowerPoint presentations and MPEG-2 videos without a PC, using the projector’s built-in PCMCIA and USB slots.
The Ultimate Slide Show Device for Advanced Amateurs, Professional Photographers and More
Several of the advanced features in the PowerLite 737c are engineered to appeal to more than just business professionals. The combination of the projector’s 3LCD image quality, light weight, compact size, and PC-free operation is also designed to give photographers and other high-end digital artists a valuable presentation tool. The PowerLite 737c’s built-in software enables digital images, such as high-resolution jpeg photos, to be projected in slideshows via PC-less storage devices such as USB memory, external hard drives or directly from digital cameras. Furthermore, slideshows can be controlled by the projector either manually or with automatic/timed advancement, and color temperatures and individual settings for red, green and blue can be adjusted to the user’s personal preferences.
The PowerLite 737c and 732c offer several easy-to-use setup features that help presenters get up and running quickly. Powering on the projector requires only seven seconds of warming up before a picture appears on the screen and approximately 20 seconds to shutdown and cool off. A 1.2x optical zoom lens allows the display size to be adjusted using a remote control, and can be set to project large images from relatively short throw distances. Setup is further simplified with the inclusion of color-coded cables and a verification tone that sounds whenever the “Power On/Off” button has been selected.

The EPSON PowerLite 737c and 732c will be available for $2,099 and $1,899 (respective estimated street prices) through authorized pro audio/visual, national distribution, catalog and direct PC dealers in September 2004.
