Epson Laser Projectors 10000 and 9600

Epson LS10000Epson announced the reintroduction of their brand new line of Pro Cinema projectors that use 3LCD Reflective laser technology. The announcement of new Epson Reflective Laser LCD projectors first came about 4 years ago (even demoed them at CEDIA), but the products weren’t quite ready for the market, and Epson put them back on the drawing board. Now they’re ready—and even better than when they were first demoed. The new Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 4K Enhancement Projector and the EPSON Pro Cinema LS9600e Wireless 1080p Projector feature 1,500 and 1,300 lumens of color brightness and white brightness respectively. Contrast is insane on these new projectors (more on that later) and they feature an advanced suite of calibration tools.   The new reflective laser LCD projectors use Epson’s 3LCD Reflective technology along with a laser light source to deliver unprecedented contrast. Epson is calling it Absolute Black because it actually outputs 0 lumens when projecting a black image. The Epson LS10000 and Epson 9600e Reflective Laser LCD projectors also come with one of the industry’s largest color gamut—far exceeding what is typically seen with 3LCD or DLP. The Pro Cinema LS10000 can also shift each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution (called 4K Enhancement Technology) and surpass Full HD image quality without visible stair-stepping or pixel gaps. This is a way to achieve 4K resolution using a 1080p chip rather than more expensive 4K LCD panels.   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. 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.”
