Epson Australia launches EH-LS500 big-screen TV alternative
Up to 130-inch 4K PRO-UHD display from an ultra-short-throw laser projector

SYDNEY, 29 October 2019 – Seen for the first timed in Australia at Epson’s Productivity and Efficiency launch event and ahead of its official release in 2020, Epson Australia has previewed its EH-LS500 ultra-short-throw projector – the unique big-screen TV alternative.

The EH-LS500 projector adds the ability to watch 4K1 content and a new stylish design to its portfolio of ultra-short-throw laser projectors. On view at the event, visitors were able to observe the EH-LS500’s discreet modern design.


The EH-LS500 is easy to set up, sits neatly next to the display area. Unlike standard-throw models, it can achieve a large display of up to 130 inches when placed close to the wall. Each EH-LS500 model has sleek, clean lines allowing them to blend into living and entertaining spaces.

With these 4K PRO-UHD1 ultra-short-throw laser projectors, it’s easy to stream shows, movies and more by inserting and storing a device (such as an Amazon Fire TV and Roku streaming stick) in the hidden front bay. Alternatively, users can watch content from DVD players, set top boxes, games consoles and more by using one of the projector’s three HDMI ports. It also comes with two built-in 10W speakers and a HDMI ARC connection to integrate with an AV set up.


Epson’s projectors are up to three times brighter than other 1-chip DLP projectors2 and the EH-LS500 range also includes frame interpolation as well as Detail Enhancement technology. With a high brightness of 4,000 lumens, these long-lasting laser projectors are great for casual viewing, day or night, and for big events such as sports or films. They also deliver defined shadow detail and deep blacks with a 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio. The adjustable HDR settings provide further versatility.

Design conscious users can enjoy a 4K big screen experience with a simple and elegant projector that is easy to set up, can easily stream content, and will last for years to come.


With the EH-LS500, Epson have created an ultra-short-throw projector that’s beautiful, flexible, simple and hassle-free. As it is long-lasting and affordable for a laser projector of this quality and design, it is an ideal replacement for a TV.

The EH-LS500 will be available in Australia in 2020 with pricing to be confirmed.
