Epson Shipping World’s First 4K 3LCD 12,000-Lumen Laser Projector

Pro L12000QNLEpson is now shipping what it says is the world’s first 4K 3LCD 12,000-lumen laser projector. The new Epson Pro L12000QNL is aimed at live events, higher education and corporate environments.

The Pro L12000QNL features two removable interface slots to accommodate a wide range of inputs, including 12G SDI and DisplayPort. Designed for demanding environments, this projector features a mechanical shutter and a sealed optical engine to withstand live event conditions. The Pro L12000QNL’s laser light engine and electrostatic air filter offer virtually maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours.

The Pro L12000QNL has built-in cameras for multi-projector displays with Tile Assist, which simplifies big-screen projections by automatically compensating for overlapping areas and corner positions. The auto-color adjustment function detects color inconsistencies between multiple projectors allowing the Pro L12000QNL to correct color automatically.

The Pro L12000QNL is compatible with Epson’s existing Pro L lens family, including a .35 zero-offset ultra short-throw lens for added installation flexibility. The free Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT) software simplifies the setup of multiple Epson networked Pro L projectors from both Windows and macOS devices.
