With new models from Optoma and Hisense, as well as first-time releases from Samsung and, ultimately, Epson, rivalry among projector manufacturers promoting 4K UST laser projectors as living-room TV replacements heated up toward the end of 2020. Epson’s laser projector, the EpiqVision Ultra LS500, made its debut at the 2019 CEDIA Expo in the autumn and is notable for a number of reasons. One of them is the influence Epson’s brand name and advertising might have on the whole projector industry; no other company, with the possible exception of Sony, has the same level of name recognition or prominence as Epson does.
The LS500 may be had in either black or white to better suit your preferences. There is no rear projection option, although doing so would clearly mean not making use of the included screen, which is designed for front projection from a console placed below the screen or hung upside down from the ceiling or wall. The LS500’s periscope-like lens protrudes from a chassis that is somewhat deeper than other UST projectors but narrower overall.
