Epson has introduced four new home theater projectors that support 4k and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content. How do they support UHD? The projectors utilize “4K Enhancement Technology” to shift each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double video resolution to 3840×2160, but are limited to 1920×1080 in 3D Mode.

Each of the four projectors provide 2,500 lumens of color brightness and 2,500 lumens of white brightness (measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4 and ISO 21118, respectively). And, both provide enough color gamut to display the entire sRGB and DCI color spaces (DCI supported in Digital Cinema Mode only).

Epson’s two 3LCD projectors, the Epson Home Cinema 5040UB and wireless Home Cinema 5040UBe, are the first 3LCD projectors with 4K UHD signal input and HDR support. The 5040UBe is also the first WirelessHD projector with 4K Enhancement Technology.

What about contrast ratio? The Home Cinema 5040UB, wireless Home Cinema 5040UBe, and Pro Cinema 6040UB offer contrast ratios up to 1,000,000:1, while the The Pro Cinema 4040 contrast ratio tops off at 140,000:1.

The Pro Cinema 6040UB also meets the ISF Certification standard.

The Epson Home Cinema 5040UBe (MSRP $3,299) and 5040UB (MSRP $2,999) will be available in August through authorized resellers.

The Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB (MSRP $3,999) and 4040 (MSRP $2,699) will be available in August through authorized CEDIA dealers.
