Epson launches 1st 12k, 20k laser projectors
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. The EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U come in a light and compact design, making them easy to integrate into existing infrastructure, and is a breakthrough in terms of size at this level of brightness. With Epson’s original laser light source structure and an advanced electrostatic filter, the projectors deliver up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use. 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. 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. The projectors are designed to ensure maximum installation flexibility and are able to rotate 360 degrees in any direction without loss in image brightness. A built-in camera enables 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 colour matching. Additionally, interchangeable interface boards mean greater flexibility and futureproofing, allowing for new interfaces and interface updates in the future.
