Epson launches epic EH-LS650 ultra short throw smart streaming laser projector

Epson has launched the new EH-LS650 Ultra Short Throw 3-Chip 3LCD Smart Streaming Laser Projector, a projector that utilises proprietary 3-Chip 3LCD technology to produce ultra-bright, ultra-colourful images for customers seeking epic immersive big screen entertainment in their everyday living spaces.

With consumers in mind, the Epson EH-LS650 combines incredible 4K PRO-UHD1 technology with the right amount of colour and white brightness to produce crisp, larger-than-life images – even in well-lit rooms.

The ultra-short-throw projector market has ramped up quickly in recent years with simplified streaming compatibility and a higher demand for bigger images that enables consumers to enjoy a broader range of entertainment options.

As the demand for ultra-short-throw projectors continues to grow, Epson is expanding their best-selling lineup for big-screen entertainment to meet a wider range of viewing needs with the EH-LS650 Smart Streaming Laser Projector.

The new EH-LS650 is Epson’s newest 4K PRO-UHD1 model, capable of supporting high content resolution and is intended to redefine traditional gaming and movie watching.

Whether watching movies, shows and sporting events or gaming with family and friends, the Epson EH-LS650 is engineered to amaze users with big, clear and immersive experiences.

Equipped with proprietary 4K PRO-UHD1 3-Chip 3LCD technology and 3,600 lumens of colour and white brightness2 the projector provides a front-row seat to an exceptionally colourful and sharp picture up to 120-inches.

Featuring a modern, redefined ultra-short-throw design, the projector can be placed close to the wall for easy viewing, making it convenient and easy to use in any sized room. Also, with the Epson® Setting Assistant app3 set up and adjusting display size is hassle-free.

With built-in sound by Yamaha, designed exclusively for Epson, the 2.1 virtual surround system creates immersive sound performance straight from the box. To take the listening experience up a notch, Epson’s engineers designed a sleek new metal grille to cover the speakers with minimum distortion to the sound quality.

Plus, if the integrated speakers are not loud enough, one eARC4 HDMI® port has been added to make it easy to switch from the built-in speakers to other external AV receivers or soundbars by simply using the projector’s single remote controller.

Equipped with smart TV capabilities, the EH-LS650 also makes it easy to access popular streaming channels5 and even allows users to stream live TV and search with built-in Google Assistant™.
