LONG BEACH, Calif., April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced it has been awarded three rAVe Best of ISE 2016 Awards. The Epson Pro L25000U laser projector was named “Best New Rental/Staging Projector,” the Epson® BrightLink® Pro was named the “Best Meeting Room Interactive Projector,” and the Epson Ultra Short-Throw Lens for the Pro G7000-Series and Pro L1000-Series was named the “Best New Short-Throw Projector Product.”
“For one company to dominate three categories, that’s a big deal,” said Gary Kayye, rAVe’s Founder. “We were thoroughly impressed with what Epson launched at ISE and everyone was shocked by their 25,000 lumen 3LCD-based laser projector. It was THE talk of the show as far as projectors go.”
The rAVe Best of ISE Awards honor top products across multiple product categories. rAVe Publications’ staff visited every booth at ISE to identify the best products showcased that outperformed others in their respective categories, including the following from Epson:
- Epson Pro L25000U: Designed for Rental and Staging applications, as well as large venue permanent installations, this projector leverages a sealed optical engine with laser light source and 3LCD technology to deliver 25,000 lumens of color brightness and 25,000 lumens of white brightness1 and WUXGA resolution with 4K Enhancement2. The projector integrates an inorganic phosphor wheel in combination with inorganic LCD panels for up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation, including 24/7 use for applications that require continuous projection3. In addition, the Pro L25000U is a compact-size solution for its class and leverages 4K-ready lenses, making it an attractive and competitive choice.
- Epson Ultra Short-Throw Lens: Designed for the new Pro L1000-Series4 laser projectors4 and new Pro G7000-series projectors, this is the world’s first zero-offset ultra short-throw lens, with 0.35 throw ratio and lens shift. The zero-offset design makes it ideal for space constrained venues and digital signage applications and maximizes the available space for projection.
- Epson BrightLink Pro: Designed to revolutionize meeting rooms, the Epson BrightLink Pro interactive display is a true collaboration device to transform any flat surface into a digital whiteboard that works without a computer or software. Users simply turn on the projector, start writing, share their whiteboard with up to 15 participants, and save or distribute the notes without a PC. Users can also connect BrightLink Pro to a computer and turn their whiteboard into a giant tablet or use it as a video conferencing display.
“Epson is leading the projection industry in delivering new and innovative products never seen before – from the first true collaboration device for business with BrightLink Pro, to the world’s first 3LCD laser projector with 25,000 lumens and the world’s first zero-offset ultra short-throw lens,” said Phong Phanel, product manager of large venue projectors, Epson America, Inc. “rAVe’s recognition is an honor and an encouragement to continue pushing the boundaries of audio-visual technology.”
