    Epson Releases EpiqVision Home Entertainment Line

    Human Made

    Epson is announcing the EpiqVision Ultra home entertainment line, a series of projectors that employ a modern design, laser-array technology, and dedicated screen options.

    First in the line is the Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 4K PRO-UHD Laser Projection TV, which is shipping now. The LS500 uses a custom-built, high-resolution ambient-light-rejecting screen and a short-throw projector to deliver 4K HDR content up to 120 inches.

    The LS500 is also equipped with proprietary 4K PRO-UHD 3LCD technology and 10-bit HDR processing (available for select models), allowing the LS500 to accept 100% of the source information. The LS500 displays 4K HDR content at 4,000 lumens for both color and white content, depending on usage conditions. Other specs include: 

    • 18 Gbps HDMI 2.0 with ARC support
    • Dynamic contrast ratio up to 2,000,000:1
    • Real-time 120bit analog-to-digital video processing
    • Three-chip 3LCD technology capable of displaying the Rec.709 color space (displaying the entirety of which requires Digital Cinema Mode)

    For enhanced usability and ease of use, the EpiqVision also comes with Android TV and a wireless remote with Google Voice built-in.

    The Epson EpiqVision Ultra LS500 4K PRO-UHD Laser Projection TV is available through select retailers, the Epson online store, and Magnolia and CEDIA dealers. It comes in black or white, 100-inch or 120-inch displays. The 100-inch models are MSRP $4,999, and the 120-inch models are MSRP $5,999. Included is a standard two-year, usually next-business-day, full-unit replacement limited warranty. 

    The LS500 seems suited to big, spectacle-heavy game releases, and plenty of these are looming on the horizonStar War: SquadronsAssassin’s Creed Valhalla, and the much-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 are just a few titles slated for 2020, all of which feature impressive, evocative settings that would certainly benefit from the grand treatment. 

    For those who tend to skew towards the indie scene or usually play games that emphasize things other than scale and spectacle, the price tag may turn out to be prohibitive. Still, after rewatching Blade Runner (without the abominable narration, mind), it’s hard not to daydream about a vivid, dystopian cyberpunk cityscape rendered in all its glory.
