Epson Targets No. 1 Position in Laser-Phosphor Projectors
New Pro L-Series Features Seven Models Delivering Up to 25,000 Lumens
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Feb. 9, 2016 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand
worldwide, today announced its new Pro L-Series large venue laser projectors, including the
world’s first 3LCD projector with 25,000 lumens of color brightness and 25,000 lumens of white
brightness1. The Pro L-Series projectors are also the first to integrate a laser-light source with
an inorganic phosphor wheel in combination with inorganic LCD panels for outstanding image
quality, durability and reliability. Epson’s new 3LCD laser projectors will be on display at ISE
2016 in Amsterdam from Feb. 9-12 at Epson booth, #1-H90.
“The new Pro L-series demonstrates Epson’s firm commitment to becoming number one in the
laser-phosphor market,” said Rajeev Mishra, vice president, North America Commercial
Marketing, Epson America, Inc. “Delivering innovative and reliable products is a top priority for
Epson. Projector customers in North America responded in 2015 by making Epson the number
one brand in laser-phosphor home theater projectors. Leveraging our expertise at delivering
great image quality to discerning customers, we believe it won’t be long before customers make
the new Epson Pro L-series the top choice in laser-phosphor professional projectors.”
Leveraging Epson’s proprietary 3LCD technology and new inorganic components, the Epson
Pro L-Series laser projectors deliver advanced performance, quality, reliability, and flexibility.
The Pro L25000 features 25,000 lumens of color and white brightness1 and a wide range of 4K-

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance
The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society for
Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without
conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today’s high definition content, presenters can display
content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors
need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is
important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without
sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room. For
