epson-laser-top EdTech: Epson Introduces Laser Projectors That Could Last Up To 30 YearsEpson’s New Powerlite 4500-6000 Lumen Laser Projectors Could Last Schools Up To 30 Years

Epson is the most trusted name in school projectors. For decades the company has been providing schools with top of the line technology at prices most districts can afford to implement on a larger scale. The award winning Epson company introduced their new line of PowerLite L-Series Laser Projectors at TCEA in Austin at the beginning of the month.

Admittedly they weren’t the first to market with laser projection technology, but as they told us in a briefing at TCEA, they wanted to make sure that their laser projection technology would withstand the rigorous use in K-20 classrooms worldwide. Epson is also the most trusted name in enterprise projection solutions but as many of us know, a projector in the classroom is going to be used a lot more than one in the boardroom.

Epson told us that this new line of projectors can go up to 20,000 hours without needing any maintenance. We’re not talking end of life here, we’re talking maintenance. For some schools that means their newest projectors could last up to 30 years, and lets face it within 10 years we’re going to be upgrading anyway.

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.

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 hours2 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 models3 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®.

The PowerLite L-Series models deliver innovative features that ensure bright, vibrant images, as well as quick and easy setup across devices. The projectors include the following features:

•Solid-State Laser Light Source and Electrostatic Air Filter – Provide virtually maintenance-free operation up to 20,000 hours2

•Versatile Connectivity and Control – Supports a full range of inputs, including HDBaseT, 3G-SDI, and is compatible with Crestron RoomView, AMX, Extron XTP, Control4, and Art-Net for easy integration

•Professional Installation Features – Full 360-degree installation flexibility, including Portrait Mode, Instant Off® power, quieter performance, and high contrast ratios

•Quick and Easy Setup – Get up and running in no time with easy image adjustments, convenient controls and models with built-in wireless.

•Outstanding Service and Support – Epson’s unrivaled customer support goes the extra mile with a limited warranty of 20,000 hours of usage or three years, whichever comes first

These new projectors from Epson will be available in August 2018 just in time for the 2018-2019 school year. They will come with a 20,000 hour or 3 year limited warranty with next business day replacement, including free shipping in both directions. This means that your students won’t suffer from a broken projector.
