With demand for high quality home entertainment experiences continuing to surge, Epson has launched its most advanced home theatre projector to date in Australia – the Epson EH-LS12000B 4K PRO-UHD1 laser projector, which can faithfully reproduce all source material the way the original content creators and artists intended. Incorporating an all-new laser array light source, next-generation image enhancement and processing algorithms, expanded HDR10+ and HDMI 2.1 support and real-time scene adaptive correction, the EH-LS12000B produces incredible brightness, colour accuracy and image detail for stunning 4K viewing experiences and immersive gaming.

The uniquely designed laser optical engine allows for uncompromising brightness, contrast, colour and the highest image quality. The laser engine’s long lifespan of up to 20,000 hours provides virtually worry-free operation. There’s no waiting for the projector to warm-up or cool down either, as the projector reaches maximum brightness and turns off almost immediately. To make installation simple you can precisely shift the lens up to +/- 96% vertically and up to +/- 47% horizontally without any loss in picture distortion or clarity due to the EH-LS12000B’s 3-axis motorised lens.

Then a front exhaust enables the projector to be installed on a shelf at the back of any room and with a highly sealed optical unit less light escapes, meaning you can be immersed in whatever you’re watching or playing. Driven by a new Epson picture processor and new precision pixel shift technology, the EH-LS12000B delivers sharp and clear 4K picture with 2,700 lumens of both colour and white brightness. 

Key features of the EH-LS12000B:
• 4K PRO-UHD Advanced pixel-shifting technology works in parallel with three individual high-definition LCD chips to produce an exceptionally sharp 4K picture achieving 8.3 million pixels and displaying a resolution of 3840 x 2160 on screen without sacrificing picture brightness
• Laser array light source – provides up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance free operation, with the added benefits of higher image contrast and instant ON/OFF
• Epson picture processor – Epson’s most advanced video processing technology to date, the proprietary 32-bit Epson Picture Processor handles real-time colour, contrast, HDR, frame interpolation and resolution enhancement to faithfully reproduce the source material the way it was intended to be shown
• High picture brightness – Impressive 2,700 lumens of colour and 2,700 lumens of white brightness for an exceptional picture in virtually any home theatre environment – even in rooms with ambient light
• Lens shift – With this innovative technology, the projector does not need to be placed directly in front of the screen. This comes in handy when there might be light fixtures or ceiling fans which cannot be moved
• True 3-chip 3LCD projector engine – Advanced 3LCD technology uses three individual LCD chips to continuously display 100 percent of the RGB colour signal for every frame; this allows for outstanding colour gamut while maintaining excellent brightness without any rainbowing or colour brightness issues seen with other projection technologies
• Full 10-bit HDR colour processing – Accepting 100 percent of the HDR source information to faithfully reproduce HDR, HDR10+ and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) content for an exceptional visual performance; real-time HDR curve adjustment allows for 16 steps of control to fine-tune the HDR performance regardless of the content
• Gaming up to 4K at 120 frames per second – Along with input lag times below 20ms, allow for serious gamers to take full advantage of the latest generation of gaming consoles and even higher-end gaming PCs

With an RRP of AU$8,999 it is available now from authorised Epson resellers across Australia.
