Epson is using this week’s CEDIA 2017 custom electronics show in San Diego to unveil its Home Cinema LS100 Full HD 1080p ultra-short-throw 3LCD video projector offering a large, bright image suitable for a variety of viewing locations in a home.

The Epson LS100 ($2,999 suggested retail price) offers an ultra-short-throw range with a laser light engine enabling it to be placed just a few inches from a wall in order to project up to a 10-foot screen size. The compact design enables the projector to be placed almost anywhere without long cables, shadows from people walking in front of the lens or glare reflecting off a glass panel interfering with the quality of the picture.

The super bright image, which Epson lists at 4,000 lumens of color and white brightness, and 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio enable the projector to be placed in settings that have some ambient light without washing out colors or black levels.

The LS100 also enables playing up to Full HD content from a range of devices including: cable/satellite boxes, gaming consoles and streaming devices such as Amazon Fire TV adapters, Apple TV, and Roku and Chromecast devices. The unit features three HDMI inputs.

Other features include instant off performance without waiting for warm up or cool down. The projector will reach maximum brightness in 5 seconds, the company said.

The Epson HC-LS100 will be available this Fall through Amazon as well as CEDIA and Magnolia dealers. It comes with a two-year limited warranty and a toll-free technical support line.
