SYDNEY, 17 March 2016 – Epson, the world's leading projector manufacturer1, has launched a new lineup of high-brightness 3LCD projectors with a laser-light source. The projectors, which include the EB-L25000U the world's first-ever 25,000-lumen 3LCD projector2, are also the first to include inorganic 3LCD panels with a laser light source and an inorganic phosphor wheel2. Thanks to Epson's newly developed laser light source and proprietary 3LCD technology, the new lineup offers customers outstanding performance, and includes a 4K-compatible lens and the world's first zero offset ultra-short throw lens3: Confirming Epson's commitment to the high-brightness segment, the new projectors are the result of sustained research and development. Offering mind-blowing image quality, reliability and flexibility, the lineup will include five models ranging from 6,000 to 25,000 lumens.

Epson has in recent years steadily increased its lineup of projectors in this class for applications including large exhibition rooms, concert halls and outdoor signage. The high-lumen projector market is forecast to grow by 125% by 20204, and the company is continuing to invest heavily in developing technologies and products to meet those expanding needs.

General Manager, Business Division, Epson Australia Craig Heckenberg said, "This is the announcement the projector world has been waiting for from Epson. Epson's 3LCD laser projectors offer customers the outstanding value and performance you would expect from the global projector market leader alongside the very highest quality and sharpness of image. As a result of the benefits that Epson brings to the laser projector market, opportunities and uses for these amazing pieces of equipment continue to grow."

The advantages of Epson's new lineup of 3LCD laser projectors include:
