Epson's 4K home projectors to go on sale next month
Printer and projector manufacturer Epson is set to begin sales of three 4K UHD digital projectors that feature HDR and 3D support, as well as extremely long lamp life. The EH-TW7300, EH-TW9300 and EH-TW9300W are designed for the home cinema market and come with a new high resolution 16-element lens. Each of the projectors uses Epson’s 3LCD-panel technology and boasts white and colored light output of 2,300 lumens in the case of the TW7300 and up to 2,500 lumens for the TW9300 and TW9300W. The TW-9300 and TW-9300W also offer a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 (the TW-7300 has a ratio of 160,000:1), while the TW-9300W is Wi-Fi enabled and can receive 4K, HDS and standard definition content wirelessly from host devices.
Epson claims that the bulbs in these projectors have a lifespan that allows users to watch a movie every day for seven years (based on that movie being 1 hour and 45 minutes long) with the bulb in Eco mode, and the projectors can remember up to ten lens positions to make viewing different image formats easier.
The projectors have been announced at different times in different regions but will go on sale in September at £2199, £2999/$2999 and £3299/$3299. In the USA the TW-9300 and TW-9300W will be called 5040UB and 5040Ube.

Enhancing the immersive, big-screen movie experience, Epson adds 4K enhancement, HDR and UHD Blu-ray support to three new home cinema projectors
Usability is also improved with lens position memory and motorised optics
Passionate film enthusiasts can get exceptional image quality at home with the latest state-of-the-art projectors from Epson. For the ultimate home cinema experience, the EH-TW7300, EH-TW9300, EH-TW9300W have been designed to offer 4K enhancement, UHD Blu-ray and high dynamic range support, motorised optics and lens position memory.
These HDR compatible home cinema projectors combine the latest imaging technologies to bring movies to life with extra detail. They feature 4K enhancement to bring a new level of finesse to the texture and resolution of the projected image, whether they’re displaying native 4K content or digitally upscaling Full HD 1080p content. The projectors are also designed to support the most advanced content, including HDR and 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. This gives users the optimal visual experience with more depth, detail and natural yet intense colours. In fact, their expansive colour gamut displays the entire sRGB and DCI colour spaces.
All three projectors deliver incredible definition, clarity and the deepest blacks due to an exceptionally high contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1 (EH-TW9300/ EH-TW9300W) and a new 16-piece glass lens. Colours are also rich and vivid thanks to Epson’s 3LCD panels that emit an equally high White and Colour Light Output of 2,300 lumens (EH-TW7300) or 2,500 lumens (EH-TW9300/ EH-TW9300W). In addition, frame interpolation and detail enhancement help to create sharp, smooth and flowing images.
Keeping maintenance to a minimum, these projectors’ incredibly long lamp life means the user can watch a film every day on the big screen for the next seven years1. Installation is also simple and precise thanks to motorised optics, including a powered 2.1x optical zoom, powered focus and a new powered lens shift of ±96.3% vertical and ±47.1% horizontal. It’s quick and easy to switch between different aspect ratios, as the projectors are capable of storing up to ten different lens memory positions, enabling viewers to watch films as the director intended.
With the EH-TW9300W 4K WirelessHD projector, it’s effortless to stream content to a projector from a smartphone, games console, Blu-ray player and more. The 4K WiHD transmitter makes it possible to view high-quality 4K content over WiHD, also providing flexibility when positioning the projector.
Charlotte Hone, Product Manager, Epson UK, says: “We want customers to achieve the very best cinematic experience at home, so we’re really excited to be introducing the EH-TW7300, EH-TW9300 and EH-TW9300W. The latest technologies integrated in these models, such as 4K enhancement and UHD Blu-ray and HDR support, mark a significant improvement in image quality and will really enhance the user’s overall experience. But what’s great is that they’re also easy to use, with motorised optics and lens position memory making everything from installation to every day use simple and hassle-free.”
The EH-TW7300, EH-TW9300, EH-TW9300W are available from September 2016, priced at £2,199, £2,999 and £3,299 respectively.
