Epson: Now Shipping Seven New Pro Series Laser Projectors with up to 10,000 Lumens

Michael Eddy • Tools of the Trade • June 29, 2021

Epson today announced it is shipping seven new versatile, compact laser projectors designed for large venue applications, including the world’s smallest and lightest 10,000 lumen projectors – EB-PU2010W and EB-PU2010B – along with the EB-PU1006W, EB-PU1007W, EB-PU1007B, EB-PU1008W, and EB-PU1008B. Joining Epson’s existing line of Pro Series interchangeable lens projectors, the new solutions pair seamlessly with Epson’s lens family. Ranging from 6,000 to 10,000 lumens, the new models offer advanced installation features, 3-chip 3LCD for best-in-class color brightness and WUXGA resolution with 4K Enhancement Technology to deliver crystal-clear, lifelike images for higher education, corporate, visitor attractions, and signage markets.

“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.”

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. These 3LCD projectors operate on a virtually maintenance-free 20,000-hour laser light source and air filter. An optional external air filter is available to extend the filter maintenance cycle for these projectors in dusty environments.

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, tiling assist 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.
