Epson has introduced the EpiqVision Ultra LS500 4K PRO-UHD laser projection TV. With Android TV onboard, the new units – available as both black and white models – include an ambient light-rejecting screen at either 100 inches ($4,999 package price) or 120 inches ($5,999 package price).
“More than ever, people want great experiences at home. And having a 120-inch 4K PRO-UHD screen on your wall – is the ultimate TV viewing experience,” said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Epson’s new EpiqVision Ultra LS500 Laser Projection TV redefines television and offers a truly immersive viewing experience for watching sports, TV shows, gaming, and so much more. It’s simply epic.”
Some of the LS500 features include ultra short throw capability with placement a few inches from the screen, 10-bit HDR processing, 4,000 lumens of brightness (allowing daylight viewing), Rec.709 color space, and a maximum claimed dynamic contrast ration of 2,000,000:1. HDMI 2.0 connectivity with ARC and 4K HDR at 60Hz are supported. As with other Epson lines, the unit uses 3LCD light engine technology combined with the company’s own PRO-UHD processing, and Android TV facilitates access to streaming apps and remote control with Google Assistant.
The LS500 is now available through the Epson online store, Magnolia and CEDIA dealers. All versions of the projector come with the manufacturer’s renowned service and support with toll-free access to priority phone lines and standard two-year (usually next-business-day) unit replacement warranty.
