The What: Epson has released a new version of Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT), a free software utility that helps users set up multiple Epson networked projectors in a large space.
The What Version 1.3 provides support for macOS for the first time, in addition to Windows. The software enables users to control projectors without a remote, including lens shift, shutter, and power. Intuitive operation allows for control of multiple networked projectors—projectors in the same network are automatically found and displayed. Users can access built-in tools in the Pro L-Series projectors including geometric correction and edge blending, and auto calibration quickly adjusts the brightness and color of networked projectors via their built-in cameras. With tiling assist, the software helps deliver seamless multi-projector displays. This functionality is currently available for the Epson Pro L20000UNL and Pro L12000QNL.

The Bottom Line: This software is designed to provide easy access to the projection features built into the Epson Pro L-Series laser projectors, including geometric correction, edge blending, auto color calibration, and screen matching.
