I thinnk the last two posters were refering to the Cine4Home field trip to Tokyo just before IFA. From reading through all the TW2000 / UB stuff posted recently, I think this is still the best pre-review of the unit.Cine4Home new Epson products preview - via babblefish
From the CEDIA photos at engadget
, it looks like the 1080UB shares the same case that Epson has been using since the 550 a few years ago.
From reading the Cine4Home preview, and looking at the Engadget photos at CEDIA, I 'think' that Epson America's PR
department must have made a HUGE mistake, and accidently sent out a press realease for the not-even-previewed HOME Cinema 1080UB. They then tried to recover by retracting the price, and sending out press releases for the PRO Cinema 1080UB.
From the Epson CEDIA booth photos, it looks to me like this is the lineup in the immediate future.
Pro Cinema 720 ( Cine4Home preview shows the TW700 is being continued )
Pro Cinema 1080 ( I would think they would only be showing this because the UB isn't available yet, and the CEDIA channel needs a 1080 pj they can sell until then )
Pro Cinema 1080UB
Home Cinema 720 ( I haven't heard any mention of this from any of the CEDIA reports .. it looks like this might be the new TW680, as the lens looks different than the current HC400, and the TW600 appears to be disco in Europe / Asia .. this would be good news as it sounds like it improves the lens to 2:1 zoom )
Home Cinema 1080 ( probably the TW1000 )
The two new MovieMates.
Now, what comes next? My suspiscion is the HC1080UB. I guess we'll see in about 6 months!
