Epson’s new 4K laser projector does HDR10+, 120Hz gaming
Epson Pro Cinema LS12000.

Epson has just dropped its newest flagship 4K laser projector and it boasts some impressive specs that will make it a serious contender for fans of big-screen movies and gaming alike. The Epson Pro Cinema LS12000 4K PRO-UHD Laser Projector (model V11HA47020MB) has been priced at $4,999 and can be purchased at the Epson online store and Magnolia and CEDIA dealers.

Five grand is a lot of money, but when you dig into the LS12000's capabilities, it starts to seem a lot more reasonable, especially as you compare to OLED and QLED TVs with the same features. Using a newly designed laser array light source and a three-chip LCD display engine, the LS12000 boasts 2,700 lumens of brightness and can reproduce 100% of the color in an HDR10 video signal, according to Epson. There's also compatibility with HLG and HDR10+ (though not Dolby Vision), and native support for 120Hz refresh rates, along with a claimed input lag time below 20 milliseconds, all of which will make it a very good gaming companion for both consoles and PCs.

We've found all the best sources of 4K content around and have gathered them here for you. Check out our guide on why you're not getting Netflix in 4K and how to fix it.

Optoma’s new 4K HDR projectors are aimed at gamers
Optoma UHD38 4K HDR projector

Optoma has unveiled two new 4K HDR home theater projectors, the $1,300 UHD35 and its slightly more powerful sibling, the $1,400 UHD38. They look like just about every other bulb-based projector on the market, but inside their plain white shells, Optoma has included some technology that will make these models a lot more appealing to gamers.

Home theater projectors do one thing really well: They provide the largest image size for the lowest price. A nice, big 150-inch image or larger is a real tempting way to play console or PC games, but the downside of these projectors is that their input lag and response times are usually too slow for serious gamers, who need things to be as fast as possible. That's where the UHD35 and UHD38 come in.
