Epson: Now Shipping Eight New PowerLite Laser Projectors

Stage Directions • Tools of the Trade • June 21, 2021

Epson announced it is shipping eight new PowerLite® laser projector models that deliver bright, powerful displays – the L520W, L520U, L530U, L630U, L730U, L735U, L630SU, and L635SU. Ranging from 5,200 to 7,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness, the new PowerLite projectors offer convenient creative tools and easy installation.

“Building on the success of Epson’s existing PowerLite lineup, the new models bring next-generation display technology to end users, enabling them to wow audiences and make an impression, no matter the environment or installation,” said Mark Roslon, director, product marketing, Epson America, Inc. “These compact projectors combine impressive visuals with helpful installation tools and connectivity options, making them ideal display solutions for a variety of presentation and signage needs.”

The new PowerLite models feature a minimalist, discreet design with black and white color options to fit seamlessly into virtually any environment. Delivering ultra-bright, colorful images with simplified installation and a virtually maintenance-free 20,000-hour laser light source, the projectors offer reliable operation and impactful projection without being bound by a frame.

For Education and Corporate Environments
Providing bright, easy-to-read displays for meetings, lectures, and more, the PowerLite L520W, L520U, L530U, L630U, and L730U offer powerful performance, flexible placement and exceptional image quality. Different from other classroom or corporate display technology, the PowerLite models can deliver images up to 500 inches with 16:10 or ultra-wide 16:6 displays for optimal visibility from anywhere in a room, or while tuning in virtually. The new models also come equipped with versatile connectivity options and easy installation tools, including lens shift, HDBaseT and 360-degree placement flexibility, along with 5GHz enterprise-level wireless, upgraded Miracast® and screen sharing for enhanced collaboration.

For Entertainment, Corporate, and Higher Education
Combining advanced installation features with high-performance laser projection, the long-throw PowerLite L730U and L735U and short-throw PowerLite L630SU and L635SU deliver bright, beautiful images for nearly any application – big or small. Built to enhance creativity and operational efficiency, the projectors come with advanced built-in features, including 5GHZ enterprise-level wireless, HDBaseT, edge blending, and a content creation app. The new displays also include an array of connectivity options, energy-saving features and a suite of software tools that enable content management and remote control and monitoring of the projectors.
