Epson currently sits as the number-one selling projector company in all but one category: rental/staging. But the company’s new 25,000 lumen Pro L25000 is part of a seven-model lineup of the Pro L-Series that aims to take on that vertical with a price/performance mix that Epson believes will help establish them as the number one staging projector company. The Pro L-Series happens to be the world’s first 3LCD projector with up to 25,000 lumens of color brightness and 25,000 lumens of white brightness. The Pro L-Series projectors are also the first Epson projectors to integrate a laser-light source with an inorganic phosphor wheel in combination with inorganic LCD panels.
Leveraging Epson’s proprietary 3LCD technology and new inorganic components, The Pro L25000 is 25K lumen projector while the Epson Pro L-Series laser projectors are all WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution projectors but include a wide range of 4K-compatible lenses. While the Pro L1000-Series comes in six models ranging from 6,000 to 12,000 lumens, and offers nine optional lenses, including the world’s first zero-offset ultra short-throw lens.
These Epson 3LCD laser projectors offer several advantages for large venue installations, including:
- Image Quality: With a highly efficient light engine, Epson’s 3LCD laser projectors can reproduce spectacular images with up to 25,000 lumens of color and white brightness and are designed for large venues such as auditoriums, concert halls, lecture halls and sanctuaries.
- Reliability: Epson’s LCD panels and phosphor wheel are made of inorganic material with superior light and heat resistance; combining these in a laser projector results in bright, vibrant images and up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free use, including 24/7 operation.
- Flexibility: Epson’s lineup of 3LCD laser projectors is designed for a host of venues and applications; supporting 360-degrees installation, edge-blending, stacking, portrait-mode projection, mapping and a large variety of lens options.
The Pro L1000-Series combines a laser light source and 3LCD technology up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, including 24/7 applications (Epson actually says the warranty is “bumper-to-bumper” and that anything that goes wrong will be fixed). Aside from the Pro L2500, the new Pro L1000-Series offers lumen and case-color options to meet a range of other application needs. Specs and model numbers are:
