The Easy Home Theater Installation Alternative to a Projector

Product Overview: The Epson LS-500 4K Short Throw Projector

Most everyone wants an immersive big-screen experience in their media room or home theater. The only issue? Not everyone has the space for a full-fledged theater installation. In some areas, mounting a projector in the ceiling or a back wall is not a practical solution.

You might ask - why not go with a large flat-screen display? Many people do, and there are many that Georgia Home Theater can recommend from brand partners like Sony. But, some people want that projected large screen experience without giving up space, and the truly large, over 100-inch flat panels can get very expensive.

There is a solution, and it’s called the ultra-short-throw projector. It’s a projector than can sit mere inches from your wall and project an image up to ten feet across diagonally. The best part is that it only requires a slim wall-mounted screen, and it sits on your typical media credenza or cabinet.

What’s more, the latest models feature the newest 4K and HDR technology for an eye-popping picture, and sometimes also include full smart TV functionality for an all-in-one solution with the convenience of a TV and the cinematic impact of a projector.

One of Georgia Home Theater’s favorite models in this category is the Epson LS500, and it may just be the answer for the media space in your Smyrna home. Read on to see if this is the easy big-screen home theater installation solution you’ve been waiting for.

Immersive Display

There’s no substitute for size when it comes to an immersive screen.

With screen sizes available in 100 and 120 inches, get all the muscle of a home cinema experience without the bulk.

The 3-chip 3LCD technology displays a full 100% of the RGB color signal. Epson's Dynamic Laser Array suppresses stray light within the signal to produce an astounding 2,500,000:1 contrast ratio. Advanced digital image processing helps eliminate banding and compression artifacts that sometimes mars the experience on lesser products. Full 10-bit color processing reproduces HDR content faithfully, creating the sought after three-dimensional picture depth.
