Lasers are steadily starting to replace traditional lamps as the light source of choice in projectors. They offer significantly better picture quality, longer runtime and life, robust build quality and even offer instant on/off, a challenge traditional projectors have faced for a long time. With so much to offer, lasers are set to be the future in projection technology.
Although Industrial Laser Projectors have been deployed in movie theatres and for commercial applications, they haven’t made their way into consumer home theatre systems. This is where Epson - the global leader in projection technologies steps up!
Earlier this month, the revered Japanese brand launched the PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10500 laser-based projectors aimed especially at home theatres. This short-throw laser projector is capable of producing up to a 10-foot display even when placed just inches away from the wall.
