TVs too mainstream for you? Try Epson's $4,000 short range projector

Epson recently introduced its new Home Cinema LS100 Full HD 3LCD Ultra Short-Throw Laser Display.

This device aims at bringing bright, big-screen projection in a smart ultra-short throw design to living rooms. 

The Home Cinema LS100 sits just inches from the wall without any long cables, shadows or glare to disrupt the viewing experience or detract from the decor.

Powered by Epson's innovative laser technology, the Home Cinema LS100 features 4,000 lumens of equal colour and white brightness and a contrast ratio up to 2,500,000.

This is meant to offer an immersive, Full HD picture up to 10 feet diagonal.,

The Home Cinema LS100 makes the bold promise of delivering bright, vivid images, with or without a screen.

Rodrigo Catalan, Epson senior product manager says, “The Home Cinema LS100 Digital Laser Display is designed to allow people to enjoy life-size images in Full HD up to 10 feet diagonal with the lights on and the shades open, all at a fraction of the cost of a 120-inch traditional flat panel display.

“With the Home Cinema LS100, families don't have to worry about the limitations of traditional home projection systems, such as shadows when walking in front of the projected image."

The Home Cinema LS100 integrates with Epson's existing lineup, targeting consumers looking for easy, flexible installation and a seamless integration with their home décor.

Epson promises that the LS100 delivers a full HD image with or without a screen for a transcendent, immersive viewing experience.

Featuring ‘no shadow’ projection and simple cable management, users don't have to worry about interruptions when viewing content if people walk in front of the projected image.

The Home Cinema LS100 also enables today's connected home to stream Full HD content from a range of devices including cable/satellite boxes, gaming consoles and streaming devices like Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku.

The device features laser technology, which supposedly, offers up to 10 or more years of worry-free operation.

Designed for both the mass consumer and custom installer markets, the Home Cinema LS100 will be available later this year for $4,000.
