Projector Reviews has handed out awards as part of its Best Home Theater Projectors report.
The projectors were divided up into categories depending on their price and the winning device in the most expensive class was the Sony VPL-VW600ES, beating the JVC DLA-RS49/RS4910/X500R into second place.
At the bottom of the price range there was a tie for the best in class award between the BenQ W1070 and Epson's Pro Cinema 4030, while second spot went to the Epson Home Cinema 2000/2030.
Commenting on the Best Home Theater Projectors report, editor and founder of Projector Reviews Art Feierman stated that the home theatre projector market is "maturing" and the overall quality of new devices has continued to improve.
He said: "This year's crop of top home theatre projectors may be smaller than last year, but the winners are truly impressive. In fact, only one of our award winners was even shipping 15 months ago. All in all, this year's best projectors raised the bar a good bit."
Mr Feierman added that in the next few months it is likely there will be various new revolutionary projectors released on to the market.
Pico projectors are an area of the industry that is growing particularly rapidly, while a company in the US recently revealed it is releasing an in-car projector for use while driving.
