The EB-L12000Q is suited for use in particularly demanding projection environments
Epson is laying claim to a new industry first with the launch of the EB-L12000Q 12,000-lumen native 4K 3LCD laser projector. The EB-L12000Q includes a native 4K panel developed by the manufacturer to offer a 4K resolution at 3840x2160 pixels for projections of a higher quality than UHD.
Driven by Epson’s proprietary laser light source, the EB-L12000Q is suited for use in particularly demanding projection environments, such as large auditoriums and sanctuaries, as well as for digital signage applications.
Also new is the EB-L20000U, Epson’s first projector aimed towards 20,000-lumen WUXGA installations. Both the EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U are designed to be light and compact, and include an advanced electrostatic filter for delivering 20,000 hours of ‘maintenance-free’ operation, in addition to Epson’s laser light source structure.
A triple layer dust-proof structure housing a sealed optical engine reporteldy ensures durability for the EB-L12000Q and EB-L20000U by reducing their airflow by 86% compared to previous models. A liquid cooling system, meanwhile, keeps the projectors’ key optical elements within the sealed optical engine running at optimal temperatures. Additionally, both projectors include a mechanical shutter to protect the lens from laser light damage.
The projectors are both able to rotate 360° in all directions without losing image brightness. A built-in camera assists with remote diagnostics and set up, and Epson’s Professional Projector Tool software facilitates the simple set up of multi-projector installations with features including geometry correction, automated edge-blending, curve correction and colour matching.
Both models are also equipped with the same 4K-compatible lenses found in the Epson EB-L1000 series projectors. They are also compatible with the new zero lens offset ultra-short throw lens ELPLX02, which features a wider lens shift for environments with a limited distance between the lens and the screen. The new projectors also support Hybrid Log Gamma and HDR10.
