It has to do with condensation. If they can keep the SXRD panels cool enough so that there's less of a hot-to-cool cycle they can minimize how much moisture builds up on the panels.

I've read that they master the content for the DCI encode so that projectors should be using a 2.6 gamma. I never understood this when you factor in that DCI projectors don't have enough contrast to...

Epson makes nice projectors and their warranty is the best in the business. At the moment I don't think they offer the best "bang for the buck" in the $3000+ price market. The RS400 and RS500 from...
