Epson Officially Unveils Pro Cinema 6050UB Pro-UHD Projector,
Today, Epson has officially announced the Pro Cinema 6050UB 4K PRO-UHD Projector ($3999). This model is aimed squarely at the custom integrator channel and comes supplied with a spare bulb, a ceiling mount kit, and a longer (three year) warranty than what's offered with the consumer model, the 5050UB.
While not a native 4K projector, this model accepts 4K content, including HDR and 4K/60. It uses Epson's 1080p LCD imagers and pixel-shift technology to both increase apparent resolution on screen, and to make the pixel grid invisible. This projector largely shares the feature set of the Pro-UHD 5050UB, including advanced HDR processing and a highly flexible motorized lenses that can precisely zoom and position and focus the image on screen.
This projector is able to reproduce the P3 color gamut (used in commercial cinema) in its entirety when deploying its cinema filter—with some loss of peak brightness. With more lumens are needed, it can produce highly saturated color with full light output. Furthermore, Epson says that it’s UltraBlack Contrast tech allows for a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,200,000:1 (in a lab or ideal room, typical real-life contrast numbers are lower).
Full-bandwidth HDMI 2.0 (18GHz) allows for 4K/60 playback, which is great for streaming 4K and gaming. The Home Cinema 5050UBe comes equipped with a Epson WirelessHD transmitter with 4K/30 support and four inputs.
