Epson’s unveils three PRO-UHD projectors at IFA
A winning combination of visual technologies combine to provide the ultimate home cinema experience
Epson launches a trio of new home cinema projectors for film enthusiasts that put image quality front and centre (EH-TW7400, EH-TW9400, EH-TW9400W), at IFA 2018, Berlin, stand number 103, hall 21b. These affordable projectors, with great connectivity and easy set-up, ensure consumers can enjoy the big screen experience and 4K content.
Helping consumers identify the impressive display capabilities offered by these models, Epson has grouped its high-end visual technologies under the umbrella term PRO-UHD. To deliver exceptional image quality, these PRO-UHD projectors offer a high dynamic contrast ratio up to 1,200,000:1, 4K-enhancement technology, 3LCD technology, Full HD, UHD BD and HDR support. Building on the success of the previous models, the enhanced EH-TW9400/W are capable of handling all 4K input devices.
Every feature adds real value to the PRO-UHD experience. 3LCD technology means users avoid the 'rainbow effect' and enjoy vivid colours thanks to an equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,600 lumens. HDR support reveals extra detail and depth, giving natural yet richer colours. The ultra-wide colour gamut increases the range of lifelike colour, while the high contrast ratio of up to 1,200,000:1 delivers deep blacks for defined detail in the shadows. Even in the fastest action scenes frame interpolation and Detail Enhancement ensure motion pictures are sharp and smooth.
While the technology might be complex and precise, the projectors are incredibly straightforward to set up. The motorised optics include a powered 2.1x optical zoom, powered focus and powered lens shift of ±96.3% vertical and ±47.1% horizontal. They’re designed for regular use with an incredibly long lamp life that means the user could watch a movie every day on the big screen for the next seven years 1, without needing a lamp replacement.
With film fanatics in mind, these models make it simple to watch movies as the director intended with enhanced controls. It's easy to view films in the right aspect ratio by storing up to ten different formats.
Additionally, the EH-TW9400W offers wireless viewing. Stream high-quality 4K content to the projector from smartphones, games consoles, Blu-ray players and more by connecting via HDMI to the 4K WiHD transmitter.
Timothy Wilson, VI account manager, Epson South Africa, says, “It’s not one star feature, but the combination of a number of technologies that makes the difference when you’re watching a film. Our latest home cinema PRO-UHD models deliver on every front with a high dynamic contrast ratio, 4K-enhancement technology, 3LCD technology, Full HD, UHD BD and HDR support. We’ve also increased contrast ratios and lumens, while ensuring these models can support all types of 4K content, to deliver a really impressive yet affordable portfolio for film fanatics.”
These products will be on display at IFA 2018, Berlin, stand number 103, hall 21b.
The EH-TW7400 is available from September 2018 and the EH-TW9400 & EH-TW9400W are available from November 2018.
