Epson Unveils LS800 Ultra Short Throw 3LCD 4K Laser Projector With High Brightness
Epson used last week’s CEDIA Expo to showcase a pair of new video projectors highlighted by its EpiqVision Ultra LS800 4K Ultra Short Throw laser-based model.
The 3LCD Epson LS800 carries a $3,499 suggested retail price for the projector only.
It is capable projecting up to a 150-inch screen size and offers an ultra short throw design, 3LCD microdisplay system with 10-bit HDR color, 4K pixel-shifted resolution, support for HDR10, up to 4,000 lumens of peak color and white brightness, more than 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio, built-in Yamaha 2.1 audio system, three HDMI 2.0 ports including 1 with ARC, 16.7ms input lag time for competitive gaming, built-in Android TV OS smart TV platform with Google Assistant voice control and a 2-year warranty.
The projector offers a small .16:1 throw ratio enabling the unit to be positioned very close to the screen and still cast a very large viewable image. The LS800 can be placed on an AV cabinet just 17.3-inches from a 100-inch screen, or 20.2-inches back from a 120-inch screen.
The Epson LS800 has a single blue laser light engine providing up to 20,000 hours of life expectancy and no need to replace bulbs.
The LS800 is available in a choice of black or white cabinet colors, and can be purchased in a bundle with a new Epson SilverFlex Ambient Light Rejecting Screen in 100- or 120-inch versions, designed to absorb up to 90% of ambient light for large bright images with rich colors and contrast even in relatively bright settings.
It can also be used with third party Ultra-Short-Throw screens, including motorized retractable versions.
