Epson has introduced the EpiqVision Ultra LS800 4K PRO-UHD ultra short-throw 3-LCD laser projector, which can be placed inches from the wall. Priced at $3,499 and available now, the new projector is capable of a 150-inch image of “vivid colors and deep blacks” with 4K resolution and HDR. Its 4,000 lumens of brightness are considered optimal for allowing the projector to double as a sports or entertainment projector in bright rooms.
“Streaming live sports games with an epic, larger-than-life picture from the comfort of your home is the next big thing to being physically at a game,” said Fernando Tamashiro, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “The EpiqVision Ultra LS800 Laser Projector brings an astounding viewing experience with complete content immersion, while only needing to be placed inches from the wall. With a display size up to 150-inches, avid sports fans, gamers, and movie enthusiasts will feel like they are part of all the action.”...

Looking very hard a getting this now. Would appreciate a flood of insights from the forum here. I've been happy for years with my Epson.

What does Laser really mean for me? My set up has a ceiling mounted short throw, about 11 feet from screen. Does Laser mean it has to shoot from below?

I want to keep using my conventional roll down screen.

I've decided to wait a little longer -- I think a Laser TV is going to be the answer for me, but I don't feel like the timing is right just before the holidays. I use it my home theater a lot during the Christmas break (kids home from college, etc.) and I don't want to be re-working things at this time.

I can see I'm going to need to build a plywood box to accomodate the short-throw and my middle speaker. I will also require some light carpentry to get the permanent screen up.

I will take a closer look at this LS800 from Epson, but also the Formovie.
