Thus, Epson managed to keep its leadership position in the Romanian projector market in first quarter this year.

“Even if in Romania, the projector market saw a decline at the beginning of this year in terms of sales, we are optimistic on reviving consumer interest for products destined to educational purposes as well as those within the home cinema and business lineup”, said Simona Decuseara (photo), National Sales & Marketing Manager of Epson Romania.

The education-oriented products, delivering large images from short distances as well as projectors within the mobile lineup had a major contribution to Epson’s first quarter results.
