The Pro cinema LS10500 will be available this fall through specialty dealers.
Featuring 4K and high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility with 3LCD Reflective laser technology, this projector accepts 4K UHD input for finely detailed images with a high range of brightness and contrast.
Delivering 1,500 lumens of color brightness and 1,500 lumens of white brightness, the LS10500 features an Absolute Black contrast ratio and an advanced suite of calibration tools. Ideal for home installations with large screens, the Epson Pro Cinema LS10500 produces bright projected images to create a premium home entertainment experience.
“Building of the success of Epson’s Pro Cinema LS10000, Epson’s next-generation 4K laser projector adds HDR support to display an extraordinary range of brightness, shadow, and color that’s unlike anything you’ve seen,” said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, projectors, Epson America. “Epson continues its commitment to manufacturing premium, optimally priced solutions, and the LS10500 integrates the most advanced technology developedby Epson’s global research and development teams.”
Featuring a dual laser light source, the Epson Pro Cinema LS10500 delivers a range of performance capabilities such as displaying the full sRGB color gamut, even in the brightest mode, as well as the entire DCI color gamut, the digital cinema standard. Premium Reflective 3LCD panels with high speed and aperture ratio deliver high contrast. Combined with Epson’s 4K Enhancement technology, the LS10500’s HDR support displays an expanded range of contrast and color. Users can enjoy 4K UHD Blu-ray movies, and stream HDR-encoded content from favorite providers.
The use of a laser light source provides a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours for worry-free operation and high-speed contrast control for both bright and dark scenes. Epson’s advanced projection technology enables a wide range of lens shift capabilities for outstanding installation flexibility. The projector has a high range of up to ± 90 percent on the vertical axis and ± 40 on the horizontal axis, as well as up to 10 presets for zoom, focus, and lens shift for both standard projection and wide cinema ratios.
The Pro Cinema LS10500 projects 2.40, 2.35, 1.85, and 1.78 aspect ratios on the same screen, without an anamorphic lens, and no downtime switching between aspect ratios. In addition, an efficient cooling system makes the LS10500 one of the quietest projectors in the industry, according to the company.
