Berlin has seen a big announcement for potential projector buyers – this time from Epson. The company has totally revamped its range of consumer projectors, and is today launching no less than six brand new models at the Berlin show.
The new products are evenly-placed throughout the standard range of budgets, from the flagship EH-TW5500 costing £3,899, down to the HD-ready EH-TW450 at a very reasonable-looking £649.
In fact, Epson has gone one step further in its attempt to show how affordable (and easy) owning a projector can be - with the portable, DVD-player-and-speakers-included EH-DM3 (only £579). One for the kids perhaps, but certainly a worthy step towards dispelling the still-common idea that 'projector equals complicated'.
The EH-TW5500, along with the EH-TW440 (£2,999), uses Epson's 3LCD technology, which produces a very high contrast ration of 200,000:1, while also maintaining the high brightness for which high-end LCD machines are known.
And with additional features such as a proprietary 'frame interpolation' technology, and a Super resolution' setting, we look forward to getting in the new Epson projectors for a series of full reviews.
