Epson's EH TW5200 home cinema / gaming projector

Epson offer a lot for the money in their new TW5200 Projector this is a wow factor full 1080 HD 3LCD projector designed
for the Gaming / entry level home cinema market.

HOT HD Projector price
Epson TW5200 projector bundle for around $1k AUD with 92" Panasonic (of all brands) projection screen.

Till now BenQ have had the lion's share of the market but now 3LCD is in the same price range as their single chip DLP projectors
(with the associated trade-offs) so we think the TW5200 will be a great seller for Epson without the "DLP sensitive" headaches.

3LCD is the technology that powers the majority of all education & business...

Bright 3-LCD colours Bright Images

Because 3LCD projectors continuously project Red, Green and Blue colours, images are bright and colourful. Our internal testing established that Epson 3LCD projectors consistently yielded brighter Red, Green and Blue colours than 1-Chip DLP™* projectors with similar lumens ratings. Every colour is faithfully reproduced by 3LCD projectors with dynamic brightness, vibrant and accurate colours that breathe life into any presentation, whether for high profile business seminars, movies or the latest gaming console. 3LCD projectors take image quality to its natural best.

The Luminance of Colours

Maximum brightness ( i.e. lumen level indicated on brochures ) is measured by projecting a 100% full white pattern image to a screen. However, in a true presentation scenario, images with colour are projected, meaning that the true lumens of each colour is extremely vital in such situations.

3LCD projectors can project a very wide range of colours. Smooth movement in the microscopic liquid crystals in LCD panels allows for natural colour changes, especially in darker parts of images. Conversely, due to limited gradation of darker shades, many 1-Chip DLP™* projectors cannot faithfully reproduce subtle colour changes, resulting in a visual distraction called "Dither Noise". This is not an issue with 3LCD projectors.

Gentle on the Eyes

3LCD projectors reproduce images that are easy on the eyes. These images will not have colour break-up (or "rainbow effect"), which may be seen with 1-Chip DLP™* projectors. The "rainbow effect" is a result of colour sequential technology which can be distracting to viewers. In short, with 3LCD projectors, you will be sure of thoroughly amazing, enjoyable images.

Smooth Motion

3LCD projectors use three separate liquid crystal panels - Red, Green and Blue - to form a continuous image containing all colours. This means that even rapid motion video will appear smooth. With 1-Chip DLP™* projectors, viewers may see multiple lines or blurry images in rapid motion video.

High Reliability

3LCD projectors use no moving parts in the light control system, which makes it highly reliable over many years of operation.

This is how you make a sales brochure!

Epson are introducing the Pro Cinema LS10000, a "4k Laser" (light source) projector this year however it's not a true 4k projector rather it uses pixel shifting to simulate 4k.

The new HD projector (possibly similar to JVC's e-shift) may shif sub-frames by 0.5 pixel both vertically and horizontally to achieve 4 times the pixel density of the original content.

Given that the new Epson claim 1500 lumens of brightness and it could sell for say AUD $10k it's market is the serious home theatre user in a light controlled theatre room. Any light in the room would render most of the massive specifications useless.

EPSON 4k Projector

4K or future 8k Home Theatre Projectors, when should I buy one for my cinema?

Projector, TV, Display resolutions in pixels.

In general sitting at the correct distance back from the screen it's fairly hard to tell one resolution from the other unless the source material is perfect for that resolution.

Projecting a 1080 HD image you may be able to see the individual dots from say 1m whereas on 4k you may have to get as close as 100mm but why would you?
