Epson has announced its first native 4K 3LCD projector, the EB-L12000Q. But before you get too excited, this high-brightness 12,000-lumen laser flagship won’t be available until Winter 2018, at the earliest. Designed for high-end rental and fixed installations at events, festivals and visitor attractions, the new model uses the same lenses as Epson’s EB-L1000-Series.

Neil Colquhoun, executive director for professional displays, 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.”

The EB-L12000Q will be launched alongside a companion model, the EB-L20000U, compact 20k-lumen WUXGA beamer. Both models share a casing designed to fit into industry-standard tubular steel frames, and can project from any angle, including portrait.

“Making the big step into 4K is an important one for Epson,” comments Daniel Rose, product manager, “and something we wanted to get right. I think we’ve achieved that with the EB-L12000Q, as it doesn’t just offer incredible resolution but also a host of features the rental and installation sector has demanded, such as backwards lens compatibility and swappable interface boards..”

Also at ISE 2018, Epson unveiled the EV-100, a low-noise 2,000-lumen model for the signage sector. It can function as a projector or a spotlight, and is aimed at retail showrooms, shop window displays and museum/gallery exhibits.

For more immediate release are a new range of 3LCD laser projectors designed for corporate and pro AV use. The EB-L615U, EB-L610U, EB-L610W, EB-L510U and EB-L400U will replace the brand's existing lamp-based projectors, and offer a range of features  from basic functionality to HDBaseT connectivity and screen mirroring.
