The Epson EH-LS100 is a 3LCD ultra-short-throw laser projector for the home
Epson has announced that its EH-LS100 home theater laser projector is now available in Singapore. Touted as the world’s first ultra-short-throw 3LCD laser projector, the EH-LS100 sports a native WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) and up to 4,000 lumens of color and white brightness.
Since the EH-LS100 uses a laser light source, you’re also looking at up to 20,000 hours of near-maintenance-free use, instant on and off (about 5 seconds), and a high contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1. It can do 10-bit processing to produce up to 1.07 billion colors and has a detail enhancement feature that sharpens images, but there’s no HDR support.
An ultra-short-throw projector, the EH-LS100 is also great for tight spaces: you can get up to a 130-inch, full HD projection with it placed just 0.5-meter from the wall. I/O-wise, it has three HDMI inputs (one of which is MHL-enabled) for modern digital sources, one 15-pin D-Sub input, and a mix of USB-A and B ports. While it has a built-in LAN port, wireless connectivity requires a separate dongle. With the latter, you can use Epson’s free iProjection app to easily project content from mobile devices. Also onboard the projector is a 16W speaker.
The Epson EH-LS100 is now available at Epson authorized retail stores for S$4,688.
