Epson has added 4K resolution to its newest generation of compact, efficient and ultra-lightweight high lumens 3LCD projectors. The new EB-PQ2000 projector series was on show at the ISE audio visual exhibition held recently in Barcelona.

In a statement, Epson said the new projectors answer a market need for more compact, space-saving, lighter, reliable and versatile high lumens display solutions.

The projectors are 60% smaller and 50% lighter than their predecessor the EB-L20000U.

Epson’s latest 4K technology combines its patented, 4K Crystal Motion, panel thermo-control and double micro-lens array technologies for delivering optimal clarity. Also, 4K graphic processing, improves operating frequency, memory bandwidth and data transmission for a seamless 4K experience. Epson’s free EPPT software gives the user access to more features, including geometric correction, colour calibration and multi-projection assistance tools.

Each projector in the EB-PQ2000 Series is supplied as ‘body only’, without a lens, giving the user the option to design and build the most optimal projection solution for the right application using Epson’s existing range of 4K lenses without a change in throw ratios.

Additional features include NFC functionality for simpler installation, enabling communication between projectors and NFC-compatible smartphones, even when the projector is off. RRP is yet to be confirmed.
