Epson has announced the first 12,000 lumen native 4K 3LCD laser projector, the Pro L12000Q. Epson also adds the compact Pro L20000U to its large venue projector line, boasting 20,000 lumens of colour and white brightness1 and WUXGA resolution. Epson’s new 3LCD laser projectors is on display at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam from Feb. 6-9 at Epson’s booth, #1-H90.
Epson’s Pro L-Series laser projectors are powerful performers in demanding environments, including rental and staging events, lecture halls, and digital signage installations. The new Pro L12000Q and L20000U models share the same robust, compact and lightweight chassis that makes them easy to integrate into existing infrastructure – a breakthrough at this level of brightness. The new projectors also feature support for HDR, 360-degree installation flexibility, and a sealed light source and optical engine to protect from dust and smoke.
“We listened intently to the leaders in rental and staging and worked hard to solve their problems by integrating requested features into these models such as backward lens compatibility, swappable interface boards, robust and compact chassis, geometry correction assist, and edge-blending assist,” said Gavin Downey, senior product manager, Epson America. “We remain committed to delivering the highest quality projectors to the AV industry with cutting-edge technology, and high durability.”
The Pro L12000Q and L20000U are compatible with Epson’s Pro L-Series lens family, including the new ultra short-throw ELPLX02 for large image projection from just a few feet away. Epson laser technology delivers remarkable colour accuracy, easy set-up, and up to 20,000 hours2 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.
