Epson Introduces PowerLite L-Series Laser Projectors for Education and Corporate

Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, continues to drive the laser projection market with the introduction of the new PowerLite® L-Series for corporate, education and houses of worship. The new Epson PowerLite L615U, L610U, L510U, L400U, L610W, L500W, and L610 deliver incredible value to customers, featuring an integrated laser light source, stunning imagery, up to 6,000 lumens of color and white brightness1, resolution up to WUXGA, and enhanced wireless technology to connect to multiple devices. Epson's new PowerLite laser projectors will be on display at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam from Feb. 6-9 at Epson's booth, #1-H90 and at TCEA 2018 in Austin from Feb. 6-8 at Epson's booth, #923.

The new PowerLite L-Series provide strong value for laser projection within the 4,500 – 6,000 lumen range. The new series offers virtually maintenance-free operation with up to 20,000 hours[2] of laser light source. Weighing between 17 and 19 pounds, PowerLite L-Series features a compact and versatile form factor for convenient portability or installation, and models equipped with wireless enterprise level security.

"Epson's new PowerLite laser series delivers all the benefits of laser technology, in a lighter, smaller design chassis at an affordable price point," said Remi Del Mar, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. "We pride ourselves in implementing customer feedback into our product roadmap, and the new PowerLite laser models answer a need for strong value laser solutions in the mid-lumen range. We will continue to offer our customers uncompromising image quality, high color brightness with incredible detail, and reliable performance – all backed by Epson's first-in-class warranty and service."

The new PowerLite laser projectors leverage Epson's proprietary 3LCD technology to deliver up to 3x higher color brightness than competitive 1-chip DLP projector models[3] and include features to improve the ease of installation and setup. Epson's award-winning laser projection technology is ideal for corporate spaces, educational institutions and houses of worship with high ambient lighting.

Epson's flexible laser technology features full 360-degree installation and projection at any angle. Additionally, new installations and replacing existing lamp projectors are much easier with Epson's lens shift feature. The new PowerLite L-Series also supports advanced wired and wireless solutions, including HDMI and HDBaseT. To support BYOD classrooms, the projectors provide enhanced wireless display technology, allowing teachers to connect the projector to up to 50 Chromebooks, PCs and Mac® computers, and iOS and Android devices. Educators can also simultaneously display up to four screens with the Epson iProjection™[4] wireless display solution. The high-end PowerLite L610U and L615U models offer wireless screen mirroring from a smartphone or streaming device with Miracast®.
