Revolutionary line up of DLP and LCD projector for professionals
The EIKI name literally means "projectors” in Japanese. You won’t find it on printers, calculators, TV sets or refrigerators, and you won’t find it in retail outlets. Eiki do only one thing: they manufacture and market a broad range of projection technology for education, religion, government and business communication, and offer it through a network of professionals. And they’ve been doing that now for 60 years!
In 1974 EIKI Opened Eiki International, Inc. to distribute its products in the United States. In 1986, the Company acquired the business unit of the Bell & Howell Company that had originated the audio visual industry some 50 years earlier. In 1988, EIKI Canada was created as a subsidiary of Eiki International, Inc.
In the late 80’s, in conjunction with several technology partners, EIKI innovated LCD video projection technology, and by the early 90’s EIKI was one of only two brands of LCD Video Projectors marketed worldwide. Again, in the Mid 90’s EIKI brand LCD Projectors lead the way into computer projection, with some of the most powerful devices available.
In 1995, EIKI Deutschland, GmbH. Became the Company’s first office in Europe, focused on the German marketplace. And in 1996 EIKI Czech was founded to establish a network of Dealers across Central and Eastern Europe.
EIKI Shanghai was established in 2005 in China.
With the rapid growth of the Asian market, and anticipated growth, EIKI Malaysia was established in 2008 to enhance and support our sales in this marketplace.
October 1, 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of EIKI’s establishment. A ceremony was held at Itami City Hotel with EIKI staff, EIKI families, suppliers and many guests. Each subsidiary was represented at this ceremony and participated in the celebration. In accordance with Japanese tradition, a red Kimono was presented to company President, Mr. Kawabata, to protect against evils and to work with energy forever – for future EIKI growth and success.
October 15, 2013 EIKI established EIKI Australia PYT Ltd. in Melbourne, Australia. This new EIKI subsidiary will take care of Australia and Oceania market.
EIKI will continue expanding in the next decades all over the world.
What is environmental projection?
Environmental Projection is a term that describes the art of visually transforming your surroundings from a blank palette into a digital canvas through the use of projection technology.
Enhance your audience’s visual experience by creating an atmosphere which is condusive to learning. Teachers, use your classroom to paint a subtle but powerful canvas where your students’ minds are open to education and information.
Controlling the visuals in a room by projecting on the walls enables a presenter to captivate interest and stimulate the imagination of an audience.
What kinds of projectors are used?
Because Environmental Projection uses your architecture as the canvas, projector selection is dependent on a large number of variables. Brightness is one of the most important features, but also warping features, stock lens options, and warranty/service are all key features. Do we need to paint our walls with special paint? Usually not! Only if your walls are black or very dark blue/brown will painting be needed. Or, you can simply hang light-colored fabric to project on or use screens to create a video backdrop.
Is a media server or special video hardware required?
A media server is not required. Multi-display graphics adapters and other image processing hardware may be required to achieve a desired result. Speak with your EIKI dealer.
