Epson Launches Seven New Pro Series Laser Projectors
July 7, 2021 / By Nicole Behrens
Epson's newly announced seven versatile, compact Pro Series Laser Projectors are now available. These projectors are designed for large venue applications such as higher education and houses of worship along with visitor attractions such as museums (check out our article on a very cool art installation using Epson projectors here), retail signage, and corporate settings. The new models include the world’s smallest and lightest 10,000 lumen projectors – the EB-PU2010W and EB-PU2010B – along with the EB-PU1006W, EB-PU1007W, EB-PU1007B, EB-PU1008W, and EB-PU1008B.
The lightweight, compact EB-PU1000 Series and EB-PU2010 are designed for discreet placement in installations to maximize space without compromising quality or sacrificing brightness. Joining Epson’s existing line of Pro Series interchangeable lens projectors, the new solutions pair seamlessly with Epson’s lens family and include an NFC function and optional external clip-on camera to help simplify installation while empowering creativity as businesses and schools open their doors.
Ranging from 6,000 to 10,000 lumens, these new models offer advanced installation features, 3-chip 3LCD for best-in-class color brightness, and WUXGA resolution with 4K Enhancement Technology to deliver lifelike images.
“Bringing integrators pro-level features and installation tools previously unavailable in this lumen range, the new EB-PU1000 Series and EB-PU2010 include an NFC function and optional external clip-on camera to help simplify installation while empowering creativity as businesses and schools open their doors,” said Ramzi Shakra, product manager, large venue projectors, Epson America, Inc. "Epson engineering innovations have led to a very compact and lightweight design, especially at 10,000 lumens. We are excited to see the creative applications in the display space that these new projectors will enable."
For simplified installation, the new models offer advanced features, including built-in Edge Blending, image warping as well as direct content playback with shape overlay tools from USB storage media. The EB-PU1000 Series and EB-PU2010 are compatible with Epson’s wide range of optional powered lenses, including a zero offset, .35 ultra short-throw lens. Plus, Epson’s new clip-on optional external camera requires no angle of view adjustment and gives integrators access to powerful automated tools including auto color calibration, screen matching of multiple projectors,8 tiling assist9 for edge blends, and the stacking assist function. Geometry correction for stacking can be performed without an external router or PC.
Epson’s latest laser projectors are equipped with built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) function to reduce setup time when commissioning a large number of projectors. With NFC technology, users can read and write setting information using Epson’s mobile app – Epson Projector Config Tool. Users can also control and monitor projectors via the Epson Projector Management application for Windows or setup multiple projectors in a single large space via the Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT) application for macOS and Windows.
