Epson announced the launch of two new 3LCD laser projectors – the industry’s first 12,000 lumen native 4K 3LCD laser projector EB-L12000Q and Epson’s first model in the 20,000 lumen WUXGA installation projection sector EB-L20000U.
The new EB-L12000Q projector comes with the Epson-developed native 4K panel, delivering stunning 4K resolution at 3840 x 2160 pixels for more than ultra-high definition quality projections.
Driven by Epson’s proprietary laser light source, these powerful projectors are designed to expand Epson’s line-up in the high-end AV rental sector, and are suitable for use in demanding environments including rental and staging events, large auditoriums and digital signage installations.
Both projectors is a breakthrough in terms of size at this level of brightness. With Epson’s original laser light source structure and advanced electrostatic filter, the projectors deliver up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use. It also comes with a triple layer dust-proof structure housing a sealed optical engine for excellent durability and resistance, reducing airflow by 86% compared to the previous models, greatly reducing the risk of dust and smoke intrusion. A newly developed liquid cooling system maintains optimal temperatures of key optical elements within the sealed optical engine. Additionally, the projectors come with a mechanical shutter that protects the lens from laser light damage. Rotatable up to 360-degrees, the latest projectors from Epson has a built-in camera enables remote diagnostics and setup, and is powered by Professional Projector Tool software that offers numerous functions. It enables intuitive geometry correction such as automated edge-blending, curve correction and color matching among others.
Both models are also compatible with the new zero lens offset ultra-short throw lens ELPLX02 with wider lens shift, supports Hybrid Log Gamma, HDR10 and other 4K-compatible lenses used by Epson’s EB-L1000 series projectors.
“We have achieved a new milestone with the EB-L12000Q with 4K native projection, bringing amazing quality resolution to our range of projectors. Both the projectors are able to offer a wide range of functions and ease of integration to existing infrastructure to the rental and staging sector with their compatibility of lenses and interchangeable interfaces, and are indeed an important addition to our high brightness line up,” said Ng Ngee Khiang, Regional Director, Visual Products & Robotics Solution Division, Epson Singapore.
The EB-L12000Q projector has been awarded the Good Design Awards 2018 for its design. The awards are presented annually for designs that benefit and enrich people’s lifestyles and society in general.
The EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U projectors will be available for sale in the second half of 2019.
