Epson has announced a new flagship laser projector, its first to embrace HDR. The EH-LS10500, which goes on sale in November priced at £5,999, is an update on the LS10000 model, and is compatible with the growing number of HDR-ready sources, including 4K Blu-ray and PS4 and Xbox One S games consoles. 

“HDR is set to make home cinema more intense and immersive, so we're really proud of the EH-LS10500,” says Charlotte Hone, product manager for Epson UK. “By increasing the contrast between the darkest and lightest areas of the screen, HDR creates more depth and new levels of detail that have previously not been possible, and it also massively enriches colours – the EH-LS10500 can display it all perfectly.”

Beneath the hood are Epson's 3LCD reflective panels, which offer a wide colour gamut and deep blacks. A high aperture and high-speed motion response promise crisp motion detail.

The EH-LS10500 is not a native UHD projector, instead it uses '4K-enhancement' to produce 2160p dense images. Key features include Super Resolution, frame interpolation and ISF calibration modes. Colour space options include sRGB, DCI and Adobe RGB. Fan noise is a low 19dB.

Epson quotes a 30,000 hour lifespan for the dual laser light source in Eco mode. That's the equivalent of watching one film every day for 46 years, says the company. The laser engine also means a quick start-up time, just 20 seconds to reach full colour saturation.

There’s also a wide lens shift for off-centre positioning (+/-90% vertical and +/-40% horizontal), along with a 2.1x powered lens for adjusting lens shift, zoom and focus.The projector has 10 lens position memory presets.
