The projector and two-piece home theater market competition is heating up and helping to stoke those fires is the popular manufacturer Epson

The projection company, which serves the commercial, retail consumer and custom installation markets, has announced a new flagship projector, along with three other new products to provide integrators with a choice of products to fulfill their clients big-screen needs. 

Epson's new flagship LS10500 replaces the company's previous-generation model, the LS10000, and provides dealers with a laser-based projector with an operational lifespan of up to 30,000 hours, 4K compatibility and high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility. 

“Building off the success of Epson's Pro Cinema LS10000, Epson's next-generation 4KE laser projector adds HDR support to display an extraordinary range of brightness, shadow and color, unlike anything you've seen,” says Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, projectors, Epson American. ” Epson continues its commitment to manufacturing premium, optimally priced solutions, and the LS10500 integrates the most advanced technology developed by Epson's global research and development teams.”

The projector also delivers up to 1,500 lumens of color and 1,500 lumens of white brightness, and according to the manufacturer, elements such as brightness and HDR compatibility are important performance factors because the human eye is more sensitive to contrast and brightness than resolution. 

Home Cinema Line

Epson has also announced its Home Cinema 3100, Home Cinema 3700 and Home Cinema 3900 projectors. Engineered to provide performance and value, these new projectors provide dealers with a choice of cost-effective projectors that don't compromise on picture quality. 

“The Home Cinema 3100, 3700 and 3900 are dynamic home theater projectors that deliver a vivid, immersive viewing experience in living rooms, game rooms and more,” notes Catalan. “There isn't a big-screen TV that can compete with the size and immersive experience offered by a projected image, and with lens shift these models are easy to set up and install.”

Epson explains the new Home Cinema products incorporate features such as horizontal and vertical lens shift with a range of +/- 60 percent on the vertical axis, and up to +/- 24 percent on the horizontal axis. The projectors also features 1.6 zoom lenses, Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) calibration tools, color brightness levels up to 3,000 lumens and up to 3,000 lumens of white level brightness. 

During CEDIA 2016 dealers can see the new Epson products in booth number 4700.

  • LS10500 MSRP is $7,999 
  • Home Cinema 3900 MSRP is $1,999
