About the Epson Home Cinema LS11000
Sharper images and superb color
A home theater projector can give you more of a good thing — a big, beautiful picture — than even the largest TV on the market. Epson's LS11000 brings together several advanced technologies to make this one of their finest-looking projectors yet. A pair of 4K/120Hz HDMI inputs support cutting-edge video sources, including next-gen gaming consoles like the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X.
An array of lasers
The precise picture starts with a laser array light source. Bulb-driven projectors naturally get dimmer over time. The laser-driven LS11000 will provide consistent brightness over its life span, which is rated at up to 20,000 hours. A laser light source also means it turns on instantly, runs cooler, and is more energy-efficient.
A trio of high-contrast LCD panels
The laser light source feeds three separate LCD panels for the blue, red, and green components of the image. It's an arrangement that makes for super-solid, accurate color performance and high color brightness. Unlike DLP projectors that use a color wheel to produce their full range of colors, three-LCD projectors have no chance of producing "rainbow effect" — a kind of visual artifact that some people can see with DLP.
Advanced Epson pixel-shift technology
Pixel shifting is a technology that Epson has been putting to good use in their projectors for years. The LS11000 features their most advanced version yet — 4K PRO-UHD. The projector displays portions of each 4K video frame in rapid succession by shifting the position of the pixels in four different phases. Bottom line: you'll see clear Ultra HD detail with all your 4K video sources.
Separate audio system required
A projector of this caliber deserves to be paired with a separate high-quality audio system. In fact, the LS11000 has no built-in speakers of any kind. You'll need to either run all your audio/video sources separately into a home theater receiver, or use the projector's ARC/eARC-enabled HDMI port to feed your compatible sound bar, receiver, or other audio system.
