Projector customers in North America responded in 2015 by making Epson the number one brand in laser-phosphor home theater projectors. Leveraging our expertise at delivering great image quality to discerning customers, we believe it won’t be long before customers make the new Epson Pro L-series the top choice in laser-phosphor professional projectors.”

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
