Epson has unveiled four new projectors that will support 4K resolutions in addition to 3LCD and HDR at a relatively cheap price tag.

Both of the new Epson 5040UB and 5040UBe models will pack 2,500 lumens of brightness, as well as a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, which will provide deep blacks and brilliant colours, according to the manufacturer.

The projectors are both capable of producing 4K and HDR, and both feature 4K Enhancement technology. This doubles the resolution of HD content for better quality. It comes with HDMI 2.0a in addition to HDCP 2.2, which means the projectors will work with the latest A/V technology.

The 5040Be comes with additional wireless connectivity and also allows the connection of up to four HDMI devices. One of the HDMI ports also comes with support for MHL, which allows mobile devices to connect easily.

The new Epson 6040UB and 4040 models include power lens, which lets users set up to 10 positions for focused adjustment. The added benefit of the 6040UB comes with lockable memory modules which prevent misalignments of the lens.

Epson America’s senior product manager of projectors Rodrigo Catalan said in a statement: “These new projectors are a breakthrough in projection technology, engineered to handle 4K UHD content. With HDR support, it’s easier than ever for consumers to enjoy the latest content with high dynamic range to create an amazing cinematic experience.”

All the models will be available to purchase from the beginning of August.
