Epson Launches New Pro L-Series Laser Projectors at ISE 2017

New Models Deliver Increased Brightness and Robust Features for High-Impact Live Productions and Large Venue Applications

AMSTERDAM, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- (ISE 2017) -- Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced the latest Pro L-Series large venue laser projectors. The Pro L-Series come in five new models ranging from 12,000 to 15,000 lumens of color brightness and white brightness(1) plus WUXGA and SXGA+ resolution. Leveraging Epson's proprietary 3LCD technology, the Pro L-Series integrate a laser-light source with an inorganic phosphor wheel in combination with inorganic LCD panels for spectacular image quality, durability and reliability. Epson's laser projectors will be on display at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam from Feb. 7-10 at Epson booth, #1-H90.

Ideal for rental and staging, as well as permanent large venue installations, the expanded Pro L-Series feature a new remote image capture with a built-in camera for diagnostic purposes, flexible connection options, high native contrast ratio, and simple 360-degree installation and projection at any angle. With Epson's 4K Enhancement technology, which shifts each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution, the projectors accept 4K input and enhance a 1080p signal to surpass Full HD image quality(2). The new Pro L-Series is also compatible with Epson's extensive selection of lenses, which is expanding to include a new ultra-short throw option.

"The Epson Pro L-Series laser-based 3LCD projectors are rapidly becoming the benchmark for color reproduction, brightness, stacking, and blending capabilities," said Gavin Downey, senior product manager, Epson America. "We will continue to expand our laser projector offerings and demonstrate our commitment to the Pro AV industry by delivering incredible visual experiences with superior color brightness while reducing maintenance time and costs."

Epson's flagship Pro L25000U, the world's first 3LCD laser projector with 25,000 lumens of color brightness and white brightness(1), will also be on display at ISE. The Pro L25000U uses advanced edge blending and auto image calibration for creating immersive experiences, and offers seamless integration tools.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance
The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society for Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today's high definition content, presenters can display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. For more information, visit www.colorlightoutput.com.
