Epson’s latest projector is making your local cinema look bad India News, The Indian Express
It’s time to ditch the cinema for good. Home projectors provide the big screen experience in your living room without having to buy a $20 ticket or a $10 bag of popcorn. And Epson’s latest projector, the Home Theater LS11000 4Kyour local movie theater will look like chopped liver.
The new Epson Home Cinema LS11000 4K offers just about all the bells and whistles you can imagine. As the long, yet generic name suggests, it offers 4K UHD resolution, but it also has a refresh rate of 120 Hz (with less than 20 ms input lag – ideal for gamers), HDR support, HDMI ARC for external sound systems and an impressive dynamic contrast ratio of over 1,200,000:1.
Port-wise, the Epson Home Cinema LS11000 4K is perfect for most home theater setups. There is an HDMI input, an HDMI 2 (eARC/ARC) connection, an HDMI optical port, a LAN connection, a USB-A input and an RS-232C serial port. If you need a wider selection of HDMI ports, I’d recommend getting a multi-input soundbar or HDMI ARC amplifier – it will double as an input selector.
The only disappointing speck is the peak brightness. With up to 2500 lumens, this projector doesn’t look great during the day. That said, it will be perfectly usable. (One ALR screen will improve daytime performance, but ALR screens are quite expensive.)
The Epson Home Cinema LS11000 4K is now available through the Epson website and select retailers. It’s not cheap at $4,000, but to be fair, it can cast an image up to 300 inches. The cheapest 80-inch TVs, by comparison, start at $1,000 and run at a lower resolution than this projector.
