At this autumn’s Smart Home Expo, visitors got to see the UK’s first showing of the Epson EH-TW7400 home cinema projector and received information on the EH-TW9400. These affordable projectors, with great connectivity and easy set-up, ensure consumers can enjoy the big screen experience and the best looking 4K content.
Stuart Tickle, Managing Director of AWE comments: “Having seen the new models up-close, we’re confident that Epson has produced the best home cinema projectors below £3K. It’s about the quality of the pixel and lens, not just the badge on the front. Other 4K projectors at this sub £3K price point use a third party 4K chipset which ticks the “native 4K” spec box but are not the same as the superior 4K chipsets used in premium products. Epson’s 4K enhanced 3LCD technology comes with significant benefits that outweigh this technicality.”
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. 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, 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.
