Epson’s first laser projector designed for home cinema use, the EH-LS10000, has made its European debut at ISE2015. The model, first seen at CEDIA Expo last year, is a 1080p product that uses 3LCD Reflective technology with a dual laser light source. The benefit, says Epson, is a wide colour gamut and “Absolute Black”. The model can achieve full sRGB colour gamut even in Dynamic mode. By using the cinema filter, it’s possible to achieve DCI and Adobe RGB colour gamuts

The EH-LS1000 also uses “4K enhancement technology” to upscale HD sources, which according to Paul Wilson, product manager for Epson UK, “improves the texture and resolution of on-screen content.” Other attributes are a high contrast ratio and high-speed motion response, for improved motion resolution in fast moving scenes.

Laser projection also means a long life lamp. The brand is quoting 30,000 hours in Eco mode, a good point for integrators looking for reduced maintenance. It also facilitates Instant On; the projector takes just 20 seconds to illuminate. Brightness is rated at 1500 lumens.

Additional features include a 480Hz drive for bright 3D, ISF calibration modes, detail enhancement technology and frame interpolation, plus 2D to 3D conversion and depth control.

Installation niceties comprise a wide lens shift range (+/-90% vertical and +/-40% horizontal), 2x1 powered zoom lens and lens position memory presets for several screen aspect ratios. Operational fan noise is said to be “almost silent” at just 19dB (eco) and  28dB (standard). The EH-LS10000 will begin shipping April 1. Distribution is through AWE.

Epson has also updated its corporate and higher education installation projectors at ISE. The new range, which comprise the EB-G6970WU, EB-G6770WU, EB-G6570WU, EB-G6270W, EB-G6070W, EB-G6870 and EB-G6370, all now feature HDBaseT connectivity, allowing sound and vision to be delivered via Ethernet to one or many models. They also have an enhanced standard lens, which reduces flare and improves focus. The whole range can also be integrated into existing systems with the addition of Extron XTP and Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocols. The line is available from April.
