Scoop from Sweden...


September 1, 2011 - Having been a global leader in the projector market over the past decade 1, shows the Epson up a new dimension to home theater with a range of 3D projectors with full HD. The projectors that were presented at the IFA 2011 provides the brightest 3D images on the market. 2 They are also easy to use features like wireless connectivity for full high definition to movie fans, eager and sports fans can get a real 3D experience as well as 2D images in high quality in the home.


Epson's unique brightness technology provides 3D content that is clearly brighter than the other 3D home theater projectors with full HD 2nd By doubling the refresh rate from 240 Hz to 480 Hz, the blackout-time between left and right images significantly reduced. It gives a brighter 3D image that is more comfortable for users to look at.


EH-TW9000 and EH-TW9000W is the top model among the five projectors that give the optimal 3D experience with high representation of white and colored light up to 2400 lumens and contrast levels as high as 200 000:1 3, all with the latest technology. EH-TW5900, EH-TW6000 and EH-TW6000W are among the most affordable 3D 1080p home theater projectors on the market two high representation of white and colored light up to 2200 lumens and contrast levels up to 40 000:1 third


Images of high quality and projected images are bright, clear and beautiful to the eyes, thanks to Epson's 3LCD technology. In addition, the EH-and EH-TW9000W TW6000W the first wireless compatible 3D projector for full HD on the market 2, which allows users to adjust the projector without cables towed anywhere in the house.


"We previously announced that Epson would wait to develop the 3D home theater projectors until we were sure that the correct engagement were from providers of 3D content. The forecast is that 27% of households will be 3D-capable 2015 and counting with more than 40 3D video games will be released this year, four so now it's time for Epson to release their 3D projectors, and enable users to view 3D content on the big screen, "says Madlyne Colson, Product Manager at Epson Europe .


"Our new projectors support a number of existing 3-D sources, so there is a wide choice of films and programs available to show. Projectors are still the leading home theater projectors offer outstanding image clarity and accurate color reproduction. We are very excited about these new products and the experiences that they will allow Epson customers, "adds Colson.





EH-TW5900 (1200 Euro), EH-TW6000 (1650 Euro), EH-TW6000W (1900 Euro) available from October 2011, the EH-TW9000 (3050 Euro) and EH-TW9000W (3250 Euro) available from November 2011.




Hmm shame to see that all the 'cheaper' models do not have any kind of lens shift anymore, makes it harder to install them.. and what about all those people that do not care about 3D?

Thanks a lot for the news! I was SO looking forward to know what comes next from Epson!

Can you tell us how many hours do the bulbs last on the high-end models?

Also, does Epson still offer life warranty on the lamp?

Being only the top of the line (EH-TW9000) has lens shift this one will probably not make my short list. The 3050 euro calculates to be about $4362 unless someone has a great deal.

This is the first time i see a price in sweden before the US pricetag, and when we guess prices in sweden we tend to calculate the price as if the dollar is worth 10* the swedish krona(incl taxes)(real numbers are ca 6,5*sek). If thats the case the epson 9000 would cost around 3000$ in the US. Going for 29900 sek as epsons homepage says is alot cheaper high-end model then previous years, where the epson 5500(european name) went for 35000 sek.

My guess is that there will be another epson model, that does not have 3D, the 3lcd reflective versions that was mentioned last year(r2000/4000), and they will probebly cost a bit more.


For exampel the panasonic 4000 went for around 2000$ in the US, and in sweden for ca 30000sek, equal too about 4200$ back then.

I am very surprised that they left out lens shift on the lower models, I think most if not all Epson consumer LCDs had it. The lower end models are often used by people who to not mount the projectors and hence often need lens shift to position the picture properly. Strange move by Epson IMO.

Why would the 9000 in white have the wireless connectivity and the 9000 in black not have it? A typo??? I am also surprised that the lower end models are fixed offset. Maybe that allows them to really drop the price on those models.

I'm confused. Are these replacing what was supposed to come out last year? And I say "supposed", because it seems these projectors are back to standard LCD vs the whole "reflective LCD" (lcos).

good question, where are the models they held back from release last year?

Here are some quick impressions-

Quote:
The high end TW9000 projector on the other hand beamed a beautifully sharp and colourful image in 2D onto the wall of the factory's in-built home cinema room. Switching to 3D introduced a touch of softness and slight loss of brightness to the picture, but still managed a very convincing 3D illusion with the active shutter glasses. We're certainly looking forward to testing it further in the December edition of Wired magazine.

They are waiting until JVC press conference. Save the best for last.

JVC better have an ACE up their sleeve.. they have a lot of answering to do for those craptastic lamps in 2011.


I hope Epson has a highly competitive model to give them a run.

Yes. And for the CMS and gamma issues too!


The Epson looks sweet, at least on paper.
