It would be good to know the panel size and native contrast ratio to see if those panels are truly home theater bound...

Guys it's only a matter of time before Epson release an fully 4K Native projector, the problem for most normal people who generally buy Epson over Sony/JVC is a 4K Native from Epson will be more expensive than most would want to pay.
I get very excited about the thought of Epson possibly releasing a new home theater projector. First of all, as far as that 1,200:1 contrast number...we don't know that. The commercial version is a 12,000 lumen machine -- 12,000 lumens! Of course, with that kind of light output, it would be unfair to expect LS10500 contrast and black levels.
I presume, if a home theater (HT) version is released, it will have less lumens which will result in better contrast. Epson HT projectors like the UB series and laser series are not known for poor black levels or poor contrast, and I suspect if this 8.3 mill pix or 8.8 mill pix version makes it into the high end HT market, it will have good enough contrast.
Mind you, this is all speculation. But seriously, the company's history with its UB and laser series belies any notion of an Epson HT PJ having only 1,200:1 native contrast.
