With this ultra-short-throw laser projector, offering 4K PRO-UHD and a high contrast ratio, watch content on a 65" to 130" image.
"There's no doubt that TV is the unquestionable 'king' when it comes to brightly-lit environments, Epson's EH-LS500 may cast a shadow over that superiority. Once you also consider the EH-LS500 has both a smaller footprint and can provide significantly larger images at what we expect will be a considerably cheaper price-point, it's a serious contender for your consumer dollars."

Watch 4K content with this stylish and affordable 4K PRO-UHD1 projector. It can be placed very close to the projection area, while creating a 65" to 130" image. You can enjoy watching supersized content, without compromising on the look and feel of your home.
With a high brightness of 4,000 lumens and an incredible contrast ratio of 2,500,000:1, this projector delivers vivid, lifelike content and defined shadow detail with deeper blacks. Epson's 3LCD technology means its projectors have up to three times brighter colours, than comparable 1-chip DLP projectors. Fine-tune high definition images by turning on the detail enhancement feature which sharpens and refines images for lifelike clarity.
Plug and play or stream 4K1 content via HDMI using your preferred streaming device. This projector has three HDMI inputs, two built-in 10w speakers and room to store a streaming device in a hidden bay at the front. Control the projector using either the included remote control or the iProjection app.
With Epson's 4K PRO-UHD1 projectors, you get a holistic approach to image performance over and above the ability to receive, process and project 4K1 content. Great images are the result of a combination of technologies coming together, including equal colour and white brightness, 3LCD technology, contrast control, HDR10 and colour processing.
A High Dynamic Range expands the range of colour and contrast that can be reached, resulting in a more realistic and natural image. Epson’s full 10-bit HDR colour processing accepts 100% of the HDR source information to faithfully reproduce HDR content for exceptional visual performance.
All Epson projectors are based on 3-chip LCD technology for amazing colour, incredible detail and solid reliability. 3LCD’s 3-chip architecture dedicates an entire chip to process each primary colour – red, green and blue, continuously. Unlike single-chip technology that delivers colour sequentially, you get full-time colour. The result is vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD’s true-to-life colour.
Enjoy bright, vibrant pictures and excellent shadow detail of your favourite movies with 2,500,000:1 deep black contrast ratio on EH-LS500B. Bring out mesmerising dark scenes of full high definition images to the brilliant viewing experience.
Epson's ultra-short-throw (UST) projectors can be placed a few centimetres away from the display, which gives much more flexibility as to where the projector is placed. This is different from most standard or long-throw projectors, which generally need to be placed several metres away.
Clear images can be seen from any angle with no limitations of reflective glare. Projected images also allow you to get closer to the image without straining your eyes. Host a large number of guests to watch games or sports without repositioning furniture around to clear the viewing range.
As well as simplifying installation and cable management, this core functionality changes the way the projector is integrated into your home. No longer does your living room need to be centred around a long-throw projector and a fixed screen. The EH-LS500 is flexible in it's positioning and fits right into your dynamic life.
Pair this projector with an ambient light rejection (ALR) screen to enhance the image quality in bright environments by maximising projection light and cutting out any other type of light.
This powerful Epson projector paired with Epson's Ultra High-Definition Ambient Light Rejecting Screen (available as an add-on option) produces vivid colours and deep blacks in virtually any viewing environment. Become fully immersed in the entertainment with exceptionally bright, sharp and colourful content at any time, day or night.
Real-time 12-bit analogue to digital video processing ensures smooth tonal transition while eliminating banding, blocking and other compression artefacts from the final visual performance. The powerful processor in the EH-LS500B faithfully reproduces the source material the way it was intended to be shown.
Watch a movie every day on the big screen for the next ten years thanks to its incredibly long-life laser light source that minimises replacements. Epson projectors are known for their reliability, so you don’t have to worry about missing a minute of your favourite film, game or programme. The newly designed laser light source and advanced electrostatic filter deliver 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use, and consistent performance for total peace of mind.
White brightness alone cannot bring the true colours you see everyday to life. The 3LCD technology found in Epson’s projectors delivers an equally high White and Colour Light Output (CLO), so that you can experience vivid and lifelike images.
Advanced 4K enhancement hardware precisely controls three-individual high-definition LCD chips to parallel process up to 12 million pixels of information. This new type of resolution enhancement technology results in a 4K visual experience – surpassing other forms of 4K home theatre projection.
1-chip and LED projectors can be subject to the ‘rainbow effect’, which describes how some people can see a disruptive flicker in fast-moving images. Ensuring smooth images, Epson’s projectors use 3LCD technology, which means that the ‘rainbow effect’ can never occur.
With a smart media player embedded in the projector, you now have the option to select from over 4,000 content apps including already pre-installed apps. It’s now easier than ever to stream your favourite series, live sporting events, or simply watch the latest blockbuster movie with the EH-LS500.
Epson’s newly developed phosphor wheel is made of inorganic material with superior light and heat-resistance to deliver excellent reliability. Epson have also developed inorganic LCD panels – a key component of imaging devices. Combining an inorganic phosphor wheel with inorganic LCD panels in a laser projector, results in bright, vibrant images for long periods.
