Epson announces portable 3D projector for gamers

31 August2012 – Epson announces the EH-TW550 – an affordable, portable, 720p, HD-Ready 3D projector. Ideal for gamers, the EH-TW550 offers:

  • Dedicated gaming colour mode
  • 3LCD technology with equally bright White and Colour Light output for vivid, lifelike images
  • Split-screen display function
  • Radio Frequency (RF)[1] 3D technology, providing a strong signal for 3D glasses
  • Three-year lamp warranty

With its slim design, the EH-TW550 is light enough to move between rooms or carry to a friend’s house for a gaming tournament. Set-up is quick and easy thanks to manual horizontal and automatic vertical keystone correction.

Epson’s 3LCD technology, an equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 3,000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 5,000:1 ensure blacks are deep, colours are vivid and every detail is accurately reproduced. Colour can be optimised for gaming by selecting a special ‘game’ mode, with additional colour modes available for viewing film and other content.  

The projector’s split-screen display function allows two different sources to be viewed at the same time - great for checking sports scores in the middle of a game, or flicking through TV channels.

Madlyne Colson, product manager, Epson Europe, says: “This HD-Ready 2D and 3D portable projector is ideal for gamers who want the perfect blend of quality and affordability. What’s more, it comes with a three-year lamp warranty for extra peace of mind.”

The EH-TW550 is compatible with USB-rechargeable, Radio Frequency, active shutter 3D glasses, sold separately, which can be used up to 10 metres from the projector.

Available from December, the EH-TW550 is priced at €XX.
