Just got to wondering today if we are talking something like a high end JVC or Sony - do they sell, say, 10,000 per year of a particular model? 5,000? Several hundred?

Good luck finding this out. Only top executives at these companies know the answer and they would never divulge them to anyone outside the inner circle. So we are left to conjecture. It is unlikely that a production run of less than 1000 units would be cost-effective for manufactures like JVC or Sony. Of course they produce to a world market, so a run might well be multiple times this number. If I had to guess, I'd say a yearly production on the order of 15 to 20 thousand might satisfy world-wide demand, with Sony enjoying more numbers than JVC.

The numbers which are needed for tonight are predicting 1 v 3 and 1 v 2, for tomorrow 4 v 7 and 1 v 2. My predictions are 1 and 1 for tonight and 7 and 2 for tomorrow.

Cine4Home Germany mentioned that they calibrated over 2 thousand Sony VW300s.
Rund zwei Dutzend Seriengeräte des VW300 wurden von uns komplett vermessen, technisch analysiert und kalibriert.

After seeing UK dismantle WVU, I think it would be hard to bet against them. Game was over, before the first half ended.

I've heard numbers for the yearly sales of all HT class projector. As I recall, this was somewhere in the range of 120,000 / year (but don't hold me to that specific number, but it was certainly under 200K). I suspect that no more than a very few percent of those of projectors cost $10K or more. By the way, I've heard that business and education projector sales account for nearly 90% of all projector sales, so the HT segment is rather small.

I agree (with all you picks) but I think it's a coin flip between 4v7. Both outstanding coaches this time of year. Of this could just be my bracket talking

Those numbers wouldn't surprise me.

I work as a consultant for one of the 'big three' auto financial companies and there are tons of Epson projectors throughout the building. They are the smaller silver portable models although there are some of the larger ceiling mounted ones in the nicer conference rooms.

All of the screens are Da-Lite pulldowns.

Light meters are useless for making the picks for tonight. Just saying.


The business projector and screen sales dwarf the sale of HT projectors.

I retired from large defense contractor and they had a projector in every conference room. My local community college has a projector in every classroom. Of course, there are mostly inexpensive LCD types, and they don't upgrade them every 4 years.

Pete Putman went on a tour of the Epson factory in Japan about four or five years ago. IIRC they mentioned 6 million projector sales for a year. I don't think there was any more info than that. So, that could mean all pj sales, just Epson pjs, pjs with Epson LCDs or something else entirely.

I don't recall if the numbers I heard was for just the USA or global. In any case I did hear a year ago that total projector sales have been fairly level for the past several years. Epson is by far the largest producer of projectors. In their recent 2014 financial report they only mention projector sales a couple of times where they provided somewhat inconsistent info (see below):


"Business projector net sales climbed. The increase was fueled by strong sales in the Americas and China, which brought about unit shipment growth. Home-theater projector net sales also grew, mainly on higher unit shipments in Japan and China."


"Projector demand was steady in Japan, flat in the Americas and Asia, and slack in Europe due to ongoing cutbacks in investment budgets."








































unit shipments in Japan and China.
