Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, announced it is now shipping its seven new Pro L-Series laser large venue projectors and the ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens. Epson's Pro L-Series laser projectors are powerful performers for use in virtually all large venues, including rental and staging events, lecture halls, and digital signage installations.
The new Pro L-Series includes seven new models – six WUXGA projectors with 4K Enhancement ranging from 12,000 to 15,000 lumens of color and white brightness and one SXGA+ resolution projector with 15,000 lumens. The projectors feature BT.709 color space, flexible connection options, high native contrast ratio, and 360-degree installation. In addition, the three 15,000 lumen laser projectors operate from a standard 120V power outlet and feature the same compact cabinet as the rest of the line – a breakthrough feature at this high level of brightness.
In addition, the new ultra short-throw ELPLX02 lens that projects from 100-inches up to 1000-inches is now available alongside Epson's extensive selection of lenses. The ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens is the perfect solution for space-constrained environments and rear-projection applications. It also enables the 12,000 and 15,000 lumen Pro L-Series laser projectors to deliver large-size images from very short distances. With a 0.35 throw ratio, negative offset and impressive lens shift range, this lens facilitates incredible installation and positioning flexibility.
"Our large venue laser projector solutions deliver incredible visual experiences with sharp imagery and vibrant colors," said Ramzi Shakra, product manager, large venue projectors, Epson America, Inc. "Epson understands the rental and staging industry requires solutions where long life, minimal maintenance and low cost of operation are significant. With the ability to combine 3LCD technology with a state of the art laser light source, Epson delivers brilliant, true-to-life color that is backed by decades of road tested reliability."
Epson's award-winning laser technology delivers remarkable color accuracy, easy set-up, and up to 20,000 hours of laser light source for a virtually maintenance-free solution. Epson is the first manufacturer to combine inorganic 3LCD panels with an inorganic phosphor wheel to achieve high brightness and reliability.
