Epson Introduces Ultra Short-Throw Lens for 12k Lumen and Higher Pro L1000-Series Laser Projectors
ELPLX02 Delivers 0.35 Throw Ratio and Negative Offset for Projector Installation in Narrow or Tight Spaces
LAS VEGAS (NAB Show, Epson Booth #C1325) – April 9, 2018 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, today announced the ELPLX02 Ultra Short-Throw Lens for 12K lumen and higher Pro L1000-Series laser large venue projectors. The ultra short-throw lens joins the growing list of Epson’s optional, interchangeable lenses for the Pro L1000-Series projectors and delivers images from 100 to 1000-inches, providing an ideal solution for space-constrained environments and rear-projection applications. With a 0.35 throw ratio, negative offset and extensive lens shift range, the ELPLX02 facilitates easy installation and positioning flexibility.
“The ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens provides installers with the opportunity to recommend a projector in applications and locations normally not ideal for a projection solution,” said Ramzi Shakra, product manager, large venue projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Whether integrating a recessed projector in the ceiling as an alternative to an expensive video wall, or projection on a large screen behind live music to ensure the image does not interfere with the musicians and cast a shadow, this lens allows for an immersive experience up to 1000-inches from short distances.”
The new ELPLX02 lens joins the ELPLX01 to provide an ultra short-throw lens solution for the entire line of Pro L1000-Series projectors. Both lenses provides an extensive lens shift range. While the ELPLX01 lens provides zero offset, the new ELPLX02 provides a negative offset with vertical lens shift from +45 to +70 percent and horizontal lens shift from -15 to +15 percent.
The ELPLX02 ultra short-throw lens is available now through authorized resellers for $13,999 MSRP.
