The upcoming projectors feature 3LCD Reflective laser technology.
At the CEDIA Expo last week, Epson revealed two new additions to its projector lineup, the Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 4K Enhancement Projector and the Pro Cinema LS9600e Wireless 1080p Projector.
"Epson's new Pro Cinema Reflective laser projectors combine the most advanced projection technology we have ever developed. The result is a true-to-life theater experience that custom installers can provide to meet the requirements of today’s discerning consumers," said Jason Palmer, marketing manager, Epson America. "I believe that these new premium products will set an image quality and performance standard that, once experienced by our customers and partners, will make it very tough to consider anything else."
Both models feature 1080p projection and use 3LCD Reflective tech and a laser light source to achieve an Absolute Black contrast ratio of zero lumens during all black scenes and an expanded color gamut. The LS10000 offers 1500 lumens of color brightness and 1500 lumens of white brightness. Meanwhile, the LS9600e offers 1300 lumens of color brightness and 1300 lumens of white brightness. 3D support (with two pairs of included glasses), ISF calibration tools, and THX Display Certification are integrated as well. The LS10000 also features 4K Enhancement Technology which shifts every pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution. Finally, the LS9600e includes a WirelessHD transmitter capable of connecting up to five HDMI devices at the same time.
Exact pricing has not been announced yet, but the Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 and the Pro Cinema LS9600e will both be available through CEDIA and select retailers in the fall for under $8,000 each.
