The company's latest premium projector model has been detailed.  

Epson has announced its newest home theater projector. The Pro Cinema LS10500 uses 3LCD Reflective laser technology and accepts 4K UHD input.

"Building off the success of Epson's Pro Cinema LS10000, Epson's next-generation 4KE laser projector adds HDR support to display an extraordinary range of brightness, shadow and color that's unlike anything you've seen," said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, Projectors, Epson America. "Epson continues its commitment to manufacturing premium, optimally priced solutions, and the LS10500 integrates the most advanced technology developed by Epson's global research and development teams."

The projector offers 1,500 lumens of color brightness and 1,500 lumens of white brightness to create an Absolute Black contrast ratio. Likewise, the device can display the full sRGB color gamut, even in the brightest mode, as well as the entire DCI color gamut (Digital Cinema Mode only). In addition, the projector supports HDR and is capable of playing 4K UHD content through Epson's 4K Enhancement technology. This feature allows the 1080p projector to shift each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution and surpass Full HD image quality (resolution remains 1920 x 1080 in 3D Mode).

Here's a full rundown of key features per the press release:
