Created in 1953, the iF Design Award is recognized around the world as one of the most prestigious awards for innovative industrial product design excellence. Products are evaluated based on a wide range of criteria, including practicability, workmanship, consideration of environmental standards, degree of elaboration and innovation, functionality, usability, safety, aesthetics, and universal design. This year’s winners were selected from more than 5,500 entries from 59 countries by a 58-member jury comprised of experts from around the world.
The bright and powerful EB-L25000U is designed for outdoor signage, exhibition halls, concert halls, and other large venue applications.

It has a bold, rugged build and scratch-resistant surfaces while ease-of-operation is ensured with 360-degree projection flexibility. A built-in handle frame helps to ensure safe and easy transport, installation, and flexibility.
Hiroaki Sakai, general manager of Epson’s Imaging Products Design Department, said, “We are putting a lot of effort into creating designs that merge outstanding usability with stylishness. Critical to this process are the insights we gain by visiting customers in the field.
