Video rental specialist Universal Pixels has amplified its commitment to Epson by purchasing a range of laser projectors for use in some of the world’s largest music tours. The company has purchased EB-L25000U projectors, as well as EB-L1505U projectors and lenses.

The investment comes before some of the world’s largest music tours such as Radiohead, Chris Rea , James Blunt and Rick Astley get underway, and allows for more bespoke video solutions to be developed. A growing demand created by back-to-back projects led the company to make the strategic decision to invest in kit, instead of sub-renting.

UK-based Universal Pixels added Epson’s laser projectors to its product portfolio in September 2017, when it chose the EB-L25000U laser projectors for use as part of the staging for Radiohead’s current world tour, Moon Shaped Pool. The band took the set to Glastonbury 2017 for a headline set at the end of June.

“It was a no-brainer to invest in the kit. We were in a position, where, due to a healthy pipeline of projects, this investment made a lot of sense,” explains Oliver Luff, director at Universal Pixels. “This year we’ve delivered outstanding live shows at some of the most demanding locations on the global tour calendar for some of the entertainment industry’s biggest names. Being one of the first to market with a viable 25,000 lumen product, Epson was the logical choice.”

Luff cites the ability of Epson laser projectors to adapt to different light and environmental challenges, plus ease and speed of installation for their choice. He also hints new UHD laser solutions are on the cards. “Looking to the future, we want to deliver projections in 4K and are confident that Epson will help us do so,” he adds.
