The ultra short-throw projector market has ramped up quickly in recent years with simplified streaming compatibility and a higher demand for bigger images that enables consumers to enjoy a broader range of entertainment options, such as simultaneously viewing multiple live games. The new EpiqVision Ultra LS650 Ultra Short Throw 3-Chip 3LCD Smart Streaming Laser Projector underscores Epson’s efforts to advance the market.
Utilizing proprietary 3-Chip 3LCD technology in its ultra short-throw projectors, Epson recognizes the importance of bright, colorful images for customers seeking immersive big screen entertainment in their everyday living spaces. With consumers in mind, the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS650 combines 4K PRO-UHD2 technology with the right amount of color and white brightness to produce crisp, larger-than-life images — even in well-lit rooms.
The Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS650 is equipped with proprietary 4K PRO-UHD 3-Chip 3LCD technology and 3,600 lumens of color and white brightness, for a colorful and sharp picture up to 120 inches. Featuring a modern, redefined ultra short-throw design, the projector can be placed close to the wall for easy viewing, making it convenient and easy to use in any sized room. And, with the Epson Setting Assistant app, set up and adjusting display size is hassle-free.
“As the demand for ultra short-throw projectors continues to grow, Epson is expanding our best- selling lineup for big-screen entertainment to meet a wider range of viewing needs with the EpiqVision Ultra LS650 Smart Streaming Laser Projector,” said Fernando Tamashiro, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “While the Epson EpiqVision LS800 continues to hold its position as our top ultra short throw projector with the shortest throw ratio in our lineup, the new LS650 is our newest 4K PRO-UHD model, capable of supporting high content resolution and is intended to redefine traditional gaming and movie watching.”
With built-in sound by Yamaha, designed exclusively for Epson, the 2.1 virtual surround system creates immersive sound performance straight from the box. Epson’s engineers designed a new metal grill to cover the speakers with minimum distortion to the sound quality. Plus, if the integrated speakers are not loud enough, one eARC HDMI port has been added to make it easy to switch from the built-in speakers to other external AV receivers or soundbars by using the projector’s single remote controller.
Equipped with smart TV capabilities, the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS650 also makes it easy to access popular streaming channels, including Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, HBO, YouTube, and more, and even allows users to stream live TV and search with built-in Google AssistantTM.
Pricing and availability for the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS650 Smart Streaming Laser Projector will be announced in Fall 2023.
