Epson has announced three new affordable Full HD home cinema projectors.
The EH-TW5350, EH-TW5300 and EH-TW5210 are each capable of delivering Full HD 1080p images, in both 2D and 3D. In fact, says Epson, with these projectors you can watch a movie every day on the big screen for the next 11 years without changing the lamp. In case you were wondering that estimate is based on you watching one movie of 105 minute average length per day. By my reckoning that’s a lamp life of approximately 7,000hrs, or 7026.25 to be more exact.
They are each said to be capable of delivering large images from as little as 34” up to 332-inches. Epson says the TW5350 and TW5300 can produce dynamic contrast ratios of up to 35,000:1, with the 5210 capable of 30,000:1. The EH-TW5350 also includes built-in Miracast for wirelessly sharing media from Android smart devices.
Paul Wilson, business manager, Epson UK, says: “The home cinema experience should deliver big, clear and sharp images with lots of defined detail and deep blacks, which are what the EH-TW5350, EH-TW5300 and EH-TW5210 are all about. With a compact and curved design, these affordable and versatile projectors look great around the home while delivering all the latest technology. Their digital connectivity and built-in 5W speaker means they can be put to use at a moment's notice and with minimal hassle.”
All models feature frame interpolation and image enhancement technology and there are two HDMI inputs on each. Using Epson’s 3LCD technology, all three projectors include a newly-developed noise cancelling chip that helps deliver their clearest, and sharpest images yet. With a promised White and Colour Light Output of 2,200 lumens, these projectors should also be bright enough to be used in ambient light and during the day.
The EH-TW5350, EH-TW5300 and EH-TW5210 are all available from September, priced at £699, £599 and £549 respectively (RRP inc. VAT).
