Epson has announced availability of Version 1.3 of its Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT) software, which advances the platform by adding Apple macOS compatibility to the previously existing Windows 7/8.1/10 support.
EPPT is a free utility that allows A/V professionals to manage multi-projector installations using the company's Pro L laser series of large venue projectors—including the recently added native UHD 4K, 12,000-lumen L12000QNL and the 20,000-lumen L20000UNL WUXGA models.
EPPT is intended to greatly simplify setup of multiple projector installations for conference, staging and mapping applications, providing access to L series features that include geometric correction, edge blending, auto-calibration, and screen matching.
EPPT is said to offer an intuitive user interface designed to promote ease of use. The program's capabilities include:
Auto-discovery. All compatible projectors on the same network are automatically found and displayed by the software.
Basic projector control. Efficiency and time-savings are achieved by being able to access basic projector controls—including power, lens shift, and shutter—without a remote, and to also control multiple projectors at once.
Access to L-Series setup features. Allows installers to tap into each projector's built-in geometric correction/warping and edge-blending features.
Tiling assist. Currently available for the Pro L20000 and Pro L12000 models, this feature makes it easy to deliver a seamless multi-projector image for big-screen applications.
Auto color calibration and screen matching. Allows quick brightness and color adjustments of networked projectors via their built-in cameras on applicable models.
