Epson Now Shipping Seven New Pro L-Series Laser Projectors and Ultra Short-Throw Lens for Live Events and Large Venue ApplicationsEpson's Innovative Laser Projector Technology Delivers Superior Image Quality and Reliability
The new Pro L-Series includes seven new models – six WUXGA projectors with 4K Enhancement(1) ranging from 12,000 to 15,000 lumens of color and white brightness(2) and one SXGA+ resolution projector with 15,000 lumens. The projectors feature BT.709 color space, flexible connection options, high native contrast ratio, and 360-degree installation. In addition, the three 15,000 lumen laser projectors operate from a standard 120V power outlet and feature the same compact cabinet as the rest of the line – a breakthrough feature at this high level of brightness.
In addition, the new ultra short-throw ELPLX02 lens that projects from 100-inches up to 1000-inches is now available alongside Epson's extensive selection of lenses. The ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens is the perfect solution for space-constrained environments and rear-projection applications. It also enables the 12,000 and 15,000 lumen Pro L-Series laser projectors to deliver large-size images from very short distances. With a 0.35 throw ratio, negative offset and impressive lens shift range, this lens facilitates incredible installation and positioning flexibility.
