Epson announces its first 3LCD installation laser projector offering 4K resolution at ISE 2018
A range of other new products in pro AV, business and signage sectors are also announced on the first day of the show
6 February 2018 – On the opening day of ISE 2018, Epson has announced its first ever native 4K projector. The EB-L12000Q is a powerful 12,000-lumen 3LCD laser projector, designed for high-end rental and fixed installations at events, festivals, visitor attractions, large auditoriums, trade shows and shopping centres, among other uses, and can use the same 4K-compatible lenses as Epson’s EB-L1000-Series projectors for maximum versatility.
It will be launched alongside a companion model, the EB-L20000U, Epson’s first entry in the popular compact 20k-lumen WUXGA category. Both models share a casing designed to fit into industry-standard tubular steel frames, so they’re easy to fit into existing infrastructure, and offer fit and forget reliability, as well as easy installation and projection from any angle, including portrait.
Also announced on the first day of the show, the EV-100 is a new type of projector for Epson, and expands the company’s presence in the signage and lighting sector. With a sleek, low-noise design, created to blend into the background, the 2,000-lumen EV-100 can work as either a projector or a spotlight, and is ideal for curated visual environments such as retail showrooms, shop window displays, museum exhibits and gallery events, where minimal visual clutter is key. It can be used to provide information, show video, throw moving patterns or even projection map imagery onto small objects.
Completing the new projector line-up announced at ISE 2018, Epson is launching a range of new 3LCD laser projectors designed for meeting rooms, educational establishments and visitor attractions. The EB-L615U, EB-L610U, EB-L610W, EB-L510U and EB-L400U are designed to replace existing lamp-based projectors in scenarios requiring 4,500-6,000-lumen solutions, and offer a range of feature sets from basic entry-level models to more highly-specified units offering features such as HDBaseT connectivity and screen mirroring.
In addition, Epson will be announcing new Professional Projector Tool software. This utility works with Epson’s installation laser projectors, and makes it quick and easy to implement multiple projector installations, and take advantage of techniques such as edge blending and projection mapping.
Models from all of our new projector ranges will be in action at ISE including EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U units, as well as EV-100, EB-L610U, EB-L700U, and EB-L1000-Series projectors in real-world usage scenarios. We’ll also debut some of our most dramatic projection-mapped visuals yet, using edge-blended imagery from multiple EB-L25000U projectors to bring to life a uniquely colourful and enchanting story.
Neil Colquhoun, executive director, professional displays, Epson Europe, says: “Announcing our first 25,000-lumen projector two years ago was a very big moment for Epson, but showing our first 4K-capable projector at ISE 2018 may top even that. The EB-L12000Q is an outstanding piece of technology, which moves Epson into a new world of pin-sharp resolution. It’s part of our strongest pro AV line-up yet, with a new compact 20k model, as well as innovative signage and meeting room solutions, and Epson software that makes advanced projection techniques available to users straight out of the box.”
