Epson's new home cinema projector dumps the lamp

By

The Epson EH-LS10000 replaces the traditional projector lamp with a 3LCD reflective laser design that provides multiple benefits.

What do you want from a home cinema projector? A clear image? Black blacks? 3D capability? THX certification? Quick startup and shutdown? Long life? Flexible installation

Epson says its new EH-LS10000 projector has all that - and more - covered.

The laser light engine used in the EH-LS10000 gives up to 30,000 hours use in eco mode, company officials claimed. That compares with the 3,500 hour estimated life for the E-TORL lamps used in other Epson projectors.

It also allows the projector to display an all-black image at zero lumens brightness, as well as quiet operation with fast warm up and cool down.

But these benefits apparently come at the expense of brightness. The EH-LS10000 is rated at 1,500 lumens (colour or white), compared with the 2,000 to 3,000 lumens offered by the company's other home theatre projectors.

Other features include a large colour gamut, support for 1080p in 2D and 3D, improved brightness with 3D content, detail enhancement, and 4K enhancement technology ("shifting each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution and surpass Full HD image quality without visible stair-stepping or pixel gaps").

Epson Australia business division general manager Craig Heckenberg said "Epson's new 3LCD reflective laser projector combines the most advanced projection technology we have ever developed.

"The result is a true-to-life theatre experience that meets the requirements of today's discerning consumers.

"This new premium product sets an image quality and performance standard that, once experienced by our customers and partners, will make it very tough to consider anything else."

For ease of installation, the EH-LS10000 offers 2.1x power zoom, power focus, and lens shift up to +/-90% vertical and +/-40% horizontal. The lens position memory stores up to 10 settings, to suit 16:9 or 4:3 projection areas, for example.

The EH-LS10000, which includes ISF calibration tools and THX display certification, costs $8,999 and comes with a three-year warranty.
