Epson EpiqVision EH-LS800 super-ultra-short-throw projector launches for 150-in image
Epson has unveiled a new home cinema projector, the EpiqVision EH-LS800. The company defines the gadget as “super-ultra-short-throw”, with a 0.16:1 throw ratio, allowing you to place it as little as 285 mm (~11.2-in) away from the wall for a 150-in (~3.81 m) wide image. Alternatively, you can place the projector 230 mm (~9.1-in) from the wall for an 80-in (~2.03 m) picture. The 4K PRO-UHD projector has a peak brightness of 4,000 lms and a contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1.
The gadget has a laser light source with an L-shaped lens, using 3LCD technology to produce a bright and realistic image. In gaming mode, the projector has an input lag time of less than 20 ms and up to 240 Hz 2D vertical refresh rate. The EH-LS800 has an integrated 2.1 channel 20 W Yamaha speaker system, with FR-Port, DSP and AudioEngine technologies to optimize the sound experience.
With built-in Android TV, you can download popular streaming apps to the device and use tools like Google Chromecast and Google Assistant voice commands. You can also connect to the gadget via a range of ports, including HDMI ARC and USB-A. You can set up the LS800 projector using the Epson Setting Assitant app, with Quick Corner and digital zoom tools. The EpiqVision EH-LS800 will launch in Europe in October; the gadget will be available in black (EH-LS800B) or white (EH-LS800W) for £3,299.99 (~US$3,798.29) or €3,699 (~US$3,681.61).
