Epson launches 6 new projectors at IFA 2022

Epson unveiled no less than six new projectors at IFA 2022 this week, and with prices ranging from £449 to £3,299 it truly has created something for just about everyone.


The company explained that its new range of projectors are aimed at “film enthusiasts, sports fans and gamers” who are looking for an “immersive, big screen experience”. They certainly seem to fit the bill for budgets of all sizes, with its premium PRO-UHD models to satisfy perfectionists, and low-cost WXGA series for those who simply want a bigger screen.

The most expensive projectors on show were the EpiqVision Ultra EH-LS800B and the EH-LS800W (pictured), which are available in a choice of black and white, as those last letters in the name suggest. These are the firm’s first ever “super-ultra-short-throw” projectors and can apparently be placed even closer to a wall than normal ultra-short-throw projector and still create a massive, crisp and clean 4K image. For instance, place the machine just 2.3 cm away from the wall or screen and you’ll get a huge 80-inch picture, rising all the way to 150-inches at a distance of 28.5cm

That’s quite impressive, as is the peak brightness of up to 4,000 lumens that the company claims, along with HDR10 support and a 2,500,000: contrast ratio. Both models run the Android TV system that provides access to all of the major streaming apps, and there’s a built-in Yamaha audio system that provides high quality sound without the need for additional speakers, the company said. Gamers may also appreciate the dedicated gaming port that reduces input lag to just 20ms.

The next step down is the EH-TW6150 and EH-TW6250 projectors, which come with notably cheaper price tags but require somewhat longer distances. These are really entry-level models for the EpiqVision Ultra series, sporting a fresh curved design and offering flexible placement together with a vertical lens shift and 1.6x zoom. They provide up to 2,800 lumens of brightness and a 35,000:1 contrast ratio, with the same Android TV platform and 20ms response as their more expensive siblings.

As for the CO-FH02 and CO-W01, these are true entry-level projectors that the company said is the start of a new “crossover range” that combines entertainment needs with work from home and educational and home office scenarios. In other words, they’re flexible enough to be used for anything really, but don’t expect the best image quality. The CO-FH02 provides Full HD 1080p performance with Android TV and 3,000 lumens brightness. Meanwhile the CO-W01 provides WXGA resolution with around 3,000 lumens brightness too.

“With the launch of these six new projectors, there really is a projector to suit everyone,” said Paul White, Product Manager for Epson Europe’s video projection unit. “Whether you are looking for a flexible easy to use solution which can be moved easily between rooms, or take to the office, want to take your gaming to a new immersive level or are even considering a replacement for your TV, there is a solution for everyone at a price to meet every budget.”

The EH-LS800B and EH-LS800W models will go on sale in October priced at £3,299, the company said. The EH-TW6150 and EH-TW6250 will be available even earlier, in September priced at £1,099.99 and £1,149.99 respectively. As for the the CO-FH01, this will cost £679.99, while the CO-W01 is the cheapest of the bunch at £449.99. The two latter models will also hit the shops in September.
