Epson launches new laser projectors for the home
New EpiqVision range created for Laser Projection TV models EpiqVision Ultra and EpiqVision Mini
22 October 2020 - Epson has introduced two new stylish, mini laser TV projectors – the EF-11 and EF-12 - and two new smart laser projection TVs (EH-LS300B and EH-LS300W). The new projectors join the EH-LS500 to form the “EpiqVision” range, Epson’s new product family of laser and mini laser TV models. The EH-LS300 and the previously announced EH-LS500 form the EpiqVision Ultra line up while the EF-range makes up EpiqVision Mini. The new projectors bring affordable big screen, immersive entertainment to the home allowing up to 10 years of maintenance and hassle free viewing1 for the whole family, making them a real alternative to the traditional TV.
Epson’s smallest 3LCD laser projectors, the EF-11 and EF-12 offer a big screen experience in a portable design and can be moved easily from room to room, integrating into the smallest of spaces without the need for a TV or screen. The new models are ideal for a variety of different uses including family film nights, gaming, showcasing photography or even watching sports. Their compact size and lightweight design means they can be enjoyed by all members of the family, moved to different rooms within the house or even taken outside thanks to the laser light source which delivers a bright and vibrant picture.
Epson have partnered with YAMAHA for the first time to allow users an impressive ‘sound by YAMAHA’ experience, with the ability to operate as a stand-alone smart speaker. Sound by YAMAHA is available on the smart laser projectors, namely the EF-12 and the EH-LS300B & EH-LS300W. The built in Android TVTM offers thousands of movies, shows and games on Google Play, YouTube and many other popular apps.2 Furthermore, with ChromecastTM, users can cast their favourite entertainment applications directly to the big screen from an AndroidTM or iOS device, Mac or Windows computer, or Chromebook.3 A smart solution for a visually connected home.
Voice search and personalised recommendations are made possible with Google Assistant4 on the EF-12 and EH-LS300B/W. Users can quickly access entertainment, get answers and control devices around their home leaving them with more time to be entertained.
The EF-12 & EF-11 can project in any direction, even onto the floor or ceiling, giving even more flexibility.
Designed for the style conscious, the EF-11 measures a tiny 18cm along its longest edge allowing it to integrate seamlessly into any room. It can project onto almost any surface so there is no need for separate screen. With the EF-11, accessing content from a phone, tablet, and smart devices to the flexible display solution is easy with Miracast built-in.
The EH-LS300, available in either white or black, sits close to the wall and can achieve a large display of up to 120”. Like the EF-12, it comes with integrated sound by YAMAHA and Android TV. It’s Epson’s latest smart laser projection Full HD TV, projecting up to 120” with 3LCD technology, with a high contrast ratio ensuring sharp images. Great connectivity, easy set-up and alignment make this projector the ultimate choice for home entertainment enthusiasts considering the best options for their large screen viewing.
Alice Ramsden de Gómez, consumer product manager at Epson UK said: “With people spending more time in their homes than ever before, these latest beautifully designed projectors give customers a range of flexible, easy to use and affordable options for big screen entertainment. With smart connectivity, and high-quality long-lasting laser light source, there’s never been a better time to consider replacing your TV.”
