Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT) Software Allows AV Professionals to Manage Multiple Epson Pro L Projectors Simultaneously for Conference, Staging and Mapping Applications.

July 13, 2020 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide,1 today announced a new version of Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT), a free software utility that helps users setup multiple Epson networked projectors in a large space. Version 1.3 provides support for macOS® for the first time, in addition to Windows®. This software offers easy access to the powerful projection features built into the Epson Pro L-Series laser projectors, including geometric correction, edge blending, auto color calibration, and screen matching.

Blockhouse Studios, an audio and video production company, has been leveraging Epson’s EPPT software since its initial launch. “Whether using four or 16 projectors, the EPPT software has allowed us to blend, warp, color match, and configure projectors from one central location. With an easy to use interface, we can quickly train our teams to execute stunning projects time and time again,” said Kevin Winkler, owner, Blockhouse Studios. “Epson is consistently leading in projector innovation, and we are excited to see the addition of macOS – it will greatly help in the pre-production and execution for our future digital art experiences.”
