First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Epson launches new home theatre projectors
- — 02 October, 2009 11:15
Epson Australia yesterday unveiled three new projectors, replacing its current home entertainment line-up.
The Epson EH-TW3500 replaces the EH-TW3000 home theatre projector. The new EH-TW3500 uses the same 3LCD technology as the old model, but its contrast ratio is doubled to 36000:1. Light output remains 1800 lumens.
The mid-level EH-TW4000 also gets an upgrade in the form of the EH-TW4500. It has a slightly lower lumen count of 1600 than the Epson EH-TW3500, and a 200,000:1 contrast ratio.
The range-topping EH-TW5500 has the same basic brightness and contrast specifications as the EH-TW4500, adding ISF calibration for enthusiast installations. An optional anamorphic lens can be purchased to scale the image to a 2.35:1 ratio — similar to that of a cinema screen — while a boosted warranty gives three years of protection to both the projector and its lamp. It replaces the Epson EH-TW5000 home theatre projector.
The Epson EH-TW3500 is available for purchase now, while the EH-TW4500 and EH-TW5500 will be available from November.
