Epson Home Cinema LS100 Laser Display Wins AVS Forum Best of CEDIA 2017 Award

Epson, the number-one projector manufacturer in the world, today announced the Home Cinema LS100 Full HD 3LCD Ultra Short-Throw Laser Display was named 'Best Budget Ultra Short-Throw (UST) Projector' by the new AVS Forum Best of CEDIA Awards. The Home Cinema LS100 brings bright, big-screen projection in a smart ultra-short throw design to living rooms for life-size movies, video, TV, and gaming with or without a screen. AVS Forum selected the LS100 for its innovative laser light source, ultra-short throw design and optimal price.

"The AVS Forum editorial team selected super-cool, knock-your-socks-off products based on our honest impressions of performance, technology and value represented by the demos we experienced ourselves," said Scott Wilkinson, editor, AVS Forum. "Epson broke the mold of expensive ultra short-throw projectors at CEDIA 2017 with the new Home Cinema LS100, which sports laser-phosphor illumination for only $3,000. Try finding a 100-inch flat panel for $3,000 – you won't."

The Home Cinema LS100 features an ultra-short throw lens, enabling users to place the projector mere inches from the wall for sharp, life-size images in, full HD up to 10 feet diagonal. With or without a screen and with the lights on and the shades open, the LS100 laser projector delivers a transcendent, immersive viewing experience and blends seamlessly into any decor. Additionally, viewer shadows and glare do not disrupt the viewing experience or detract from décor.
