Epson has introduced a new projector, the PowerLite 810E, capable of projecting an 80-inch image from a mere 1 inch (2.54 cm) away from the screen. This ultra-short-throw projector, despite its proximity, produces an impressively large, 4K resolution image that becomes even larger as the distance increases.

The PowerLite 810E uses lamp-free laser 3LCD technology. While primarily intended for educational and business institutions, private users are also welcome to use the projector. The projection ratio is 0.16:1, allowing it to create an 80-inch image from just 1 inch away from the wall or screen. At a distance of 4 inches, it can project a 100-inch image, and at a maximum distance of 14 inches, it can project an image up to 160 inches.

The projection system offers a native resolution of 1080p, but thanks to pixel-shifting technology, the resolution can be enhanced to 4K. It supports aspect ratios of 4:3, 16:6, 16:9, 16:10, among others, as well as frame interpolation, HDR, and adaptive gamma image processing. A standout feature is the mobile app that allows the screen to be divided into several fragments, each displaying content from a separate device.

The LED laser light source is capable of up to 30,000 hours of use without replacement and can provide brightness up to 5,000 lumens. Dynamic contrast is pegged at 2,500,000:1, and manual keystone correction is supported. Additionally, digital zoom with manual focusing is available.

Connectivity options include an Ethernet LAN port, Wi-Fi 802.11ac with Miracast for broadcasting images from mobile devices. It also offers HDMI, USB, HDBaseT, and RS-232 ports, along with a pair of speakers and, optionally, a wall mount.

Weighing in at 12.5 kg and with dimensions of 693 × 342 × 144 mm, the PowerLite 810E is not the most compact projector. However, it is currently available for purchase in the United States for $3299. An identical variant, the 815E, comes in a black case instead of white and is expected to hit stores in September.
