4K Home Theatre new models on the way from Epson!
A winning combination of visual technologies combine to provide the ultimate home cinema experience. Epson new range of new home cinema projectors for home theatre enthusiasts are designates as the EH-TW7400, EH-TW9400 & EH-TW9400W.
Epson TW9400 Black
We thought they may be going with the TW8400 / TW8400W as one of the model upgrades but at time of writing that does not seem to be the case, it's the TW7400 (/ Home Cinema 4010). Price pointed and affordable projectors are aimed at the 4K user market, they have all you need in connectivity, they are very easy set-up for the non expert user too.
The TW7400 offers 200K/1 CR whereas the TW9400 boasts 1.2m/1 CR. Both have 2600 lumens of brightness and HDR10, the 9400 can support a data rate of 18Gbps.
Epson have introduced the new category of projectors using their term "PRO-UHD".
Epson EH TW7400
According to Epson all of the new PRO-UHD projectors offer:
- A high dynamic contrast ratio up to (TW9400) 1,200,000:1
- 4K-enhancement technology
- 3LCD technology
- Full HD, UHD BD and HDR support
The new models also offer ease of use features such as :
- Motorised optics include a powered 2.1x optical zoom
- Powered focus
- Powered lens shift of ±96.3% vertical and ±47.1% horizontal
The lamp is designed to offer a very long lamp life, meaning the end user could watch a movie every day on the big screen for the next seven years!*
* lamp life can vary depending on conditions, take care of your lamp by not switching the projector on/off too often and think about a power surge protector.
There is also a Wireless version, the EH-TW9400W that can stream high-quality 4K content to the projector from smartphones, games consoles, Blu-ray players etc. via HDMI using Epson's 4K WiHD transmitter.
