Epson Announces EH-LS800 Ultra Short Throw 4K Projector
The new Epson EH-LS800 4K ultra-short throw smart streaming laser projector has just been announced, and for people with space constraints, this might be the ideal solution.
Equipped with Epson’s proprietary 4K Pro-UHD 3-chip 3LCD technology, the EH-LS800 is able to output 4,000 lumens for both colour and white brightness, ensuring that projected content is sharp and visible even in brightly lit environments. With a 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio, blacks will be deep and dark, offering vivid colours. Epson also claims that the lamp-free laser technology will offer 30,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation when used in Eco mode.
Thanks to the ultra-short throw laser technology, the projector is able to beam a 150-inch screen size while being placed only 0.54m away from the wall. If a 150-inch screen is overkill, a more reasonable 90-inch display only requires a 0.32m distance.
The Epson EH-LS800 projector also has a good number of ports, including three HDMI ports that are fully compatible with all colour formats and spaces while supporting 4K HDR content at 60Hz. One of those HDMI ports is even dedicated to gaming, allowing for 1080p/120Hz signals.
Additionally, a 20W 2.1ch surround sound system by Yamaha is built into the projector, with the ability to connect a smartphone via Bluetooth so that the projector can function as a standalone speaker.
The EH-LS800 projector runs on Android TV, with the ability to use voice search thanks to the built-in Google Assistant functionality, and access to streaming platforms like Disney+, Netflix and more are baked in.
Epson is also offering a separate purchase of the Epson Ambient Light Rejecting Screen, which comes in at a 120-inch size and absorbs up to 90% of the ambient light in a room so that the projected images are crisp with good contrast.
The Epson EH-LS800 Smart Streaming Laser Projector is available for US$3,499 | S$4,999 RRP.
