DENVER (CEDIA Expo 2014, Booth #240) – Sept. 10, 2014 – Epson, the best selling projector brand worldwide, today announced a revolutionary line of new Pro Cinema projectors with 3LCD Reflective laser technology. The new Epson PowerLite® Pro Cinema LS10000 4K Enhancement Projector and the Pro Cinema LS9600e Wireless 1080p Projector deliver stunning, crystal-clear images with up to 1,500 lumens of color brightness and 1,500 lumens of white brightness, outstanding contrast and an advanced suite of calibration tools. Developed to meet the requirements of today’s most demanding home entertainment consumers, these projectors provide home theater designers with state-of-the-art solutions for creating unparalleled home theater experiences.
Integrating advanced technology developed by Epson’s global research and development, these groundbreaking projectors combine Epson's new 3LCD Reflective technology and a laser light source to deliver unprecedented Absolute Black contrast ratio and one of the industry’s largest color gamuts for an engaging, immersive home cinema experience. The Pro Cinema LS10000 adds 4K Enhancement Technology for unbelievable sharpness, clarity and detail, 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’s new Pro Cinema Reflective laser projectors combine the most advanced projection technology we have ever developed. The result is a true-to-life theater experience that custom installers can provide to meet the requirements of today’s discerning consumers,” said Jason Palmer, marketing manager, Epson America. “I believe that these new premium products will set an image quality and performance standard that, once experienced by our customers and partners, will make it very tough to consider anything else.”
With Epson’s innovative 3LCD Reflective system, custom installers can now ensure the images that filmmakers intended are the actual images that their customers see. Both projectors deliver Absolute Black contrast ratio that displays zero lumens during full-black scenes as well as improved pixel density and increased aperture ratio for smoother, film-like pictures. The LS9600e and LS10000 also offer advanced projection features including Full HD 1080p in 2D and 3D with Super Resolution and Detail Enhancement for sharp, rich images, exceptional frame interpolation capabilities, and Bright 3D Drive projection for greater brightness when viewing 3D content.
The projectors are designed for installation convenience with 2.1x power zoom, power focus, lens shift up to 90 percent vertical and 40 percent horizontal, and lens position memory that can store up to 10 settings for standard 16:9 or 4:3 projection areas, and 2.35:1 wide cinema ratio. The laser light engine offers up to 30,000 hours of life with rapid warm-up or cool down time for fast, worry-free, whisper quiet operation. For added installation and operation flexibility, a WirelessHD transmitter connects up to five HDMI devices simultaneously, with one HDMI out connection and one optical port for switching between sources, and MHL connectivity to display content from MHL-enabled tablets and smartphones (LS9600e only).
