LONG BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 20, 2015 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide1, today introduced eight new PowerLite® Pro G-Series
projectors delivering enhanced connectivity and installation
flexibility for large venue commercial spaces in education, corporate,
houses of worship and museum applications. Building upon the success of
the previous generation of Pro G projectors, all the new models have a
built-in HDBaseT™ interface for easier connectivity and reduced costs as
well as support for Extron® XTP® and Control4® Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP).
Epson projectors offer three times higher color brightness than leading competitive projectors2. The Pro G-Series offers bright, true-to-life images and produces color brightness and white light brightness3 ranging between 4,500 to 7,000 lumens, including the addition of a new 6,500 lumen WXGA model.
“As AV technology continues to advance, integrators require solutions
with more diverse connectivity options, as well as easy installation
capabilities,” said Sean Gunduz, senior product manager, Projectors,
Epson America, Inc. “We listened to our customers’ needs and introduced
the new PowerLite Pro G-Series with exceptional image quality, and tools
for easy integration into their existing infrastructures in nearly any
Advanced Connectivity and Control Protocol Support
The new PowerLite Pro G-Series includes several features that allow
it to connect with virtually any system. With built-in HDBaseT for

repeaters or added labor for carrying Full HD video, audio, network and
control commands, the new Pro G projectors also deliver support for
Crestron®, AMX®, Extron® XTP® and Control4® Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP).
The Pro G-Series projectors are also equipped with Multi-PC Projection with Moderator4 for users to wirelessly connect up to 50 devices, including computers and iOS® and Android™ tablets and phones, and share from up to four device screens simultaneously5.

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance
The color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by the Society of 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
