Epson Brings Out Three High-Bright Installation Projectors

With more and more custom installation jobs being focused on media rooms versus dedicated home theaters it should come as no surprise that manufacturers are quickly learning to adapt to the change of venue. Epson is one such manufacturer and in response to the media room craze they've announced the release of three high-brightness front projectors that should combat the one issue plaguing most media rooms -ambient light.

Epson recently announced the PowerLite Pro G-series installation projectors designed for medium to large meeting spaces in corporations, higher-education, K-12, and houses of worship. The PowerLite Pro G5550NL, G5650WNL, and G5950NL are full-featured models for custom installations that include a range of what Epson calls "future proofing" technologies.

The new PowerLite Pro G models offer several different combinations of lumens and resolution. The G5550NL and G5650WNL offer 4,500 lumens of color and white light output and the G5950NL offers 5,200 lumens of color and white light output. The G5550NL and G5950NL feature XGA resolution, while the G5650WNL features WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution designed to accommodate widescreen content.

The new series of projectors come with several new features. C2Fine technology is included and designed to help achieve deeper blacks and more vivid images. DICOM Simulation Mode is specialized imaging, using standardized grayscale to reproduce medical images, such as x-rays, for medical training and education. There is also six-axis color adjustment, which allows users to customize colors by adjusting hue, saturation, and brightness of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow. Also included are four new test patterns to make setup easier.

Also included in the features of the PowerLite Pro G series are split screen and multi-PC projection, allowing up to four computers to simultaneously project via the network with a four-way split screen. The new projectors are also compatible with Crestron RoomView to control and manage the units over a network.

These three new projector models replace the current PowerLite Pro G5150NL, Pro G5350NL, and Pro G52500WNL. The projectors offer the same features as their predecessors, including 3LCD, optional wireless, HDMI connectivity, Quick Corner image positioning technology, and five optional lenses, including a rear-projection lens.

The PowerLite Pro G5650WNL and G5950NL will be available in November 2010 each with an MSRP of $3,599. The G5550NL will be available in January 2011 with an MSRP or $3,149.
