Epson has announced its next-generation G7000-Series projectors, with new features including increased brightness and motorised lenses. Epson says the G-Series aims to deliver uncompromising image quality, low total cost of ownership and — most importantly for prospective buyers — low cost replacement lamps.
Consisting of six models delivering up to 8,000 lumens of colour brightness and 8,000 lumens of white brightness, the series also features the world's first zero-offset ultra short-throw lens with 0.35 throw ratio making them ideal for space constrained venues and digital signage applications.
"The Epson G-Series offers bright, brilliant images combined with advanced features, making them some of the best-selling projectors in Australia and New Zealand," said Craig Heckenberg, General Manager, Business Division, Epson Australia.
"The new G7000-Series raises the bar with higher brightness, 4K Enhancement resolution, new motorised lenses, and advanced technology to captivate any audience. They also underscore our commitment of delivering a broad portfolio for any company who requires a high quality projection solution for their meetings."
Epson projectors offer times higher colour brightness than competitive 1-chip DLP models, which means vivid, colourful images.
Additional features include nine optional interchangeable lenses, allowing you to choose the motorised lens most suited for your environment via a quick-release lever. A variety of ranges include an ultra short-throw, two short-throw, one wide-throw, four middle-throw and one long-throw.
There is versatile connectivity, too, with a full range of inputs, including HDBaseT, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, and 5-BNC, for easy integration with any system.
Oh, and you can run the projectors 24/7. With Epson's latest generation of inorganic LCD panels and optimised cooling systems, the G Series projectors are capable of around the clock use warranted up to 15,000 hrs.
Something that's incredibly handy — if you're currently using another brand of projector, you won't need to reprogram existing control systems since this series emulates the control codes of other major projector brands.
4K Enhancement Technology that accepts 4K signal and improves 1080p experience for movies is also available on some models, as is advanced built-in edge blending, image warping and curved-surface correction technologies.
There's also a split screen function, so two different sources can be projected side-by-side. Epson Moderator software allows up to 50 Windows, Mac, iOS or Android devices to be connected over the network with up to four of them displayed on the screen simultaneously, too.
You've also got full 360-degree installation flexibility, including portrait mode, so they can be used for simulators, mapping, digital signage and command centres.
The new G-Series range consists of the G7905UNL, G7500UNL, G7400UNL, G7200WNL, G7000WNL and G7800NL models. Replacement lamps cost $271.
