Quick question - trying to watch golf and wanted to be brighter (like the sports setting on a TV). Any preset way to do this or need to manually change everything ? Thanks

I believe V131 is the latest.

Does anyone know what improvements there are in 131?

I’m very weary of uploading new firmware in case the projector locks up and I can’t use it.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

As far as I know, the Dynamic Contrast has been improved from v.1.30 to v.1.31.

with Epson LS10000 ¿Is it possible play 4K with 10bits from Panasonic DMP-UB900EGK?


When I try to play a Blu ray 4K, in LS10000, not appear 10bits, only appear "--". Is it 8bits??

And when I put input signal 4K in LS10000, supRES/4K option is disable in the menu. Is it normal?


I only can see 10-12bits in the LS10000 when I play a BluRay 1080p but never when I play a Bluray 4K. Is it normal?




With a oppo 203 ¿is it possible see 4K with 10bits in my LS10000?


Thank you masters!!
To my knowledge the LS10000 is limited to 8bit Output, thus forcing everything other (10/12bit) will not work.

There is no preset for that. To gain the highest lumen output or get a brighter picture at the LS10000 you should choose following settings:
- color mode without a filter (Natural, THX?, Dynamic?),
- lens iris = 0,
- Power consumption = high
- if possible without crushing blacks: set brightness up
- if possible without loosing details on brighter scenes: set gamma to a higher value

Setup: NAD T758v3 + NAD M25: 7x Jamo D500 + 2x Jamo SUB660 + 4x Jamo IC206 / Epson LS-10000 / Panasonic UB9004 / 2x Quake Q10b: Earthquake XJ-700R / Behringer DCX2496

LS10k is limited to 8bit (dithering) with 4K input. but it accepts 10bit or 12bit signals.
Dynamic preset is the brightest out of the box and fine for sports.

I already asked this question in the LS10500 thread, but have gotten no response, so I figured I would give this thread a try since both projectors should be the same in this context.


At what distance is the screen door effect visible with the LS10500; i.e. at what seating distance is the SDE no longer visible?

It depends on your screen size - a bigger screen will have larger visible pixels from a fixed distance than a smaller screen.

My screen is 104" wide and I sit 7.5ft back and I can't see them. Maybe from around 2 or three feet but that's a guess. My UF screen material has a far more visible texture to it up to around 5 feet or six feet and that's a fixed visibility as the texture size remains the same regardless of screen size.

Not much help but I think you won't see anything from normal seating distances.

Yes, my question should probably have been better worded, I should have asked distance to height sitting ratio. 104" wide and you sit 7.5ft back, does that include the use of an anamorphic lens with a 2.35:1 screen or is that in reference to the projector without a lens? If the latter, then that means even a 1.5 ratio for distance to height should not be an issue (I think my sitting ratio is 2 to 1).

It was initially zoomed onto a spandex screen, and I never had any pixel visibility issues. The screen is 16:9 but masked to 2.40 and I only remove the top and bottom masks for IMAX content. For scope I'm at 2xSH back but as you rightly say is 1.5xSH for 16:9 and more of the truth with respect to the actual display.

Later I added a lens which of course further improved the pixel density for scope.
