The Full HD ultra-short throw projector model is designed to sit just inches from a user's wall.
Epson has announced the latest addition to its Home Cinema projector lineup. The new Home Cinema LS100 Full HD 3LCD Ultra Short-Throw Laser Display is set to launch in the fall for a suggested retail price of $2,999.
"The Home Cinema LS100 Digital Laser Display is designed to allow people to enjoy life-size images in Full HD up to 10 feet diagonal with the lights on and the shades open – all at a fraction of the cost of a 120-inch traditional flat panel display," said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, Projectors, Epson America. "With the Home Cinema LS100, families don't have to worry about the limitations of traditional home projection systems, such as shadows when walking in front of the projected image."
The projector is designed to serve as a compact living room solution for big-screen entertainment with ultra-short throw, "No Shadow" projection and simple cable management. Under the hood, the unit uses Epson's 3LCD design and laser technology, offering 4,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness for 100 percent color brightness, and a contrast ratio up to 2,500,000:1. Likewise, the device provides support for projecting Full HD images up to 10-feet diagonal with or without a screen, and the lamp-free light source is rated for up to 10 or more years of performance. Three HDMI ports are integrated as well for connecting cable/satellite boxes, gaming consoles, streaming devices, and other media players.
Epson's Home Cinema LS100 Full HD 3LCD Ultra Short-Throw Laser Display is currently on display at the company's CEDIA Expo 2017 booth in San Diego.
