Epson, the number-one selling projector brand, announced the launch of two new 3LCD laser projectors – The EB-L12000Q, which is the industry’s first 12,000 lumen native 4K 3LCD laser projector and is one of the lightest in class, and the EB-L20000U, Epson’s first model in the 20,000 lumen WUXGA installation projection sector.

The new EB-L12000Q projector comes with a native 4K panel, giving us 4K resolution at 3840 x 2160 pixels. Despite this technology the EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U come in a small form factor, making them easy to bring around or even install into your system. With Epson’s original laser light source structure and an advanced electrostatic filter, you can expect to use them for as long as 20,000 hours without any maintenance.

The projectors come 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. You may be thinking that reducing the airflow would make this machine extremely hot, but a newly developed liquid cooling system maintains them at optimal temperatures. The projectors also come with a shutter that protects the lens from laser light damage.

Designed to ensure ease of installation for any orientation, the projectors are able to rotate 360 degrees without any compromise in brightness. There is also a camera built in to allow remote diagnostics and setup. Epson’s new Professional Projector Tool software simplifies set-up of multi-projector installations and offers intuitive geometry correction such as automated edge-blending, curve correction, and color matching. Additionally, interchangeable interface boards mean greater flexibility and futureproofing, allowing for new interfaces and interface updates in the future.

Not only are they easy to install, but they’re also compatible with the same 4K-compatible lenses used by Epson’s EB-L1000 series projectors. Both projector models are compatible with the new ELPLX02 with wider lens shift, useful for places with very limited distances from the lens to screen. The new projectors also feature support for Hybrid Log Gamma and HDR10.

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,

The EB-L12000Q projector has been presented the Good Design Award 2018, an award are presented for designs that benefit and enrich the lifestyles of people and society in general.

The EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U projectors will be available for sale in the region in the second half of 2019.
