Epson has added a third periscope-style UST lens to handle up-close applications with its brightest large-venue projectors.

The ELPLX03 offers a 0.35:1 throw ratio and is designed to accommodate the 25,000-lumen Pro L25000U and 30,000-lumen Pro L30000U projectors. It joins the existing ELPLX01S and ELPLX02S, which are respectively designed for use with Epson Pro Series projectors up to 8,500 lumens, and between 9,000 and 20,000 lumens. They offer the same 0.35:1 throw ratio. The addition of the ELPLX03 means a version is available for every current Pro Series model. At the assigned ratio, all three lenses should throw a 250-inch image from a little over 6-feet throw distance. The lenses will support images up to 1,000 inches diagonal.

The unusual periscope architecture of the lenses and their zero-offset design, along with the 360-degree orientation capabilities of their mated laser projectors, allows for some unusual placements. This includes the ability to flip the projector upside down and mount it above a ceiling so that only the lens is visible to viewers. Generous horizontal and vertical lens shift capabilities for all three lenses also add to their flexibility.

An additional feature of all three lenses is an integrated mount point for Epson's upcoming ELPEC01 accessory camera, an option that will allow access to automated tools that will include auto color calibration, screen-matching of multiple projectors, tiling assist for edge-blending, and a stacking assist function.
