The exciting new range of Epson projectors is out!
Still holding one of the most interesting positions in the market, the brand’s ability to produce extremely high-quality 4K on screen images without using native 4K panel technology hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Whether you’re an industry expert or an amateur home cinema lover, you might notice a certain anticipation in the air when Epson brings its latest updates to the table. Building on the success of the EH-TW9300, EH-TW9300W and EH-TW7300, Epson’s new line offers some of the best value home cinema projectors available today.
The advancement in wireless technology changed industry perceptions last year – vastly improving flexibility and reliability and it really comes into its own on the new EH-TW9400W.
Let’s explore what the latest range offers.
While the TW7300 was impressive enough, users can now enjoy a brightness increase from 2,300 to 2,400 ANSI lumens. The contrast ratio has also jumped up from 160,000:1 to 200,000:1. This has the result of a more vibrant and higher contrast image, with deep dark blacks to complement areas of bright colour tones.
The EH-TW7400 also comes with full HD, UHD BD and HDR support for crisp visuals as well as frame interpolation and Detail Enhancement to capture even the fastest moving images with smoothness and accuracy. The mechanics aren’t letting the team down either with fully motorised optics including powered zoom, focus and lens shift.
Buyers of this great piece of tech can enjoy 3,000 hours of lamp life in Eco mode, giving you longevity and low total cost of ownership.
Plus, it also has a huge installation-position-flexibility thanks to its lens shift of vertical ±96.3 per cent and horizontal ±47.1 per cent,.
At a retail price of £2,199.60 inc. VAT, this is great value for a hell of a lot of technology.
The EH-TW9400’s predecessor, the EH-TW9300 is still in many people’s opinion the best performing 4K enhanced projector in its price category. As Epson reveal their latest update, we can see an increase in brightness and contrast as well as support for HDR10, HLG HDR formats and 18GBPS 4K signals.
So it goes without saying, that it’s more than likely that we’ll witness similar success with this model as it continues where the 9300 left off.
This impressive PRO-UHD projector, set to retail at £2,548.80 inc. VAT (indicative) offers a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 1,200,000:1, 3LCD technology and naturally… full HD, UHD BD and HDR support.
Users are also able to enjoy an ultra-wide colour gamut delivering realistic tones and shades across a range of textures, colours and movements. Like other models in this range, the TW9400 offers defined detail with frame interpolation and Detail Enhancement – even with extremely fast-moving action or video game scenarios.
To finish, home cinema fans and game enthusiasts can enjoy 3,500 hours of lamp life to keep themselves entertained for years to come!
A direct improvement of the popular EH-TW9300W, Epson’s EH-TW9400W offers the same proven image quality with a few bonuses. There is an increase in brightness to 2,600 ANSI lumens, and a contrast enhancement to 120,000:1. The result? Greater depth and vibrancy in colour.
We’re also seeing a faultless reproduction of wirelessly transmitted signals as Epson continues to be the pioneer in this area. Also, now supporting HDR10 and HLG formats as well as the ability to accept an 18GBPS signal we’re seeing an all-round delivery of quality here as Epson continue to offer some of the best value home cinema projectors in the market.
With an expected retail price of £2,899.20 inc. VAT, we’re eager to see how this model performs in the market compared to its predecessor.
Investing in enhanced 4K
When it comes to price, no one can dispute that Epson’s range of enhanced 4K projectors is budget-friendly, especially compared to their 4K cousins that cost a considerable deal more. But what limitations does this come with?
Understanding what enhanced 4K actually is should help you decide. Firstly, when we talk about 4K-Enhancement Technology, we’re referring to the ability of Epson devices to deliver two images per frame. This is achieved by shifting the image by 0.5 pixels diagonally between the frames at a rate imperceptible to our eyes.
The biggest benefit of this is of course for home cinema users with more realistic budgets than the £5k+ native 4K demands who want the crispest, sharpest images with a great level of detail won’t be left wanting.
While native 4K technology still remains the industry’s gold standard, it’s remarkable to see how good enhanced 4K technology is in terms of quality (and at a much lower price point).
See it to believe it!
Without proof, bold claims are worth nothing.
That’s why we’re offering free, no-pressure demonstrations at Projectorpoint for customers who really want to see whether enhanced 4K is a contender against its native 4K cousins.
