Epson is currently the number one selling brand of front projectors worldwide and the new Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 builds on that position using a seamless combination of projection technologies that produces an immersive big-screen experience like no other. These technologies include Epson's new 1080p (1,920 x 1,080) native resolution C2 Fine 3LCD chips, OptiCinema optics, E-TORL lamp, 1080Perfect Video Processor, and Absolute Black technology. Priced at $4,999 (estimated street price), the Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 will be available in January 2007 through CEDIA dealers.
The Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 is ISF-certified, ensuring it meets the home theater industry's highest standards for video fidelity and calibration. It also takes advantage of five core Epson technologies that are critical to projecting industry-leading image quality:
- Epson's breakthrough C2 Fine 3LCD Technology is a three-chip high definition system that produces full-time color with dramatically higher contrast ratios.
- The AccuCinema Lens maintains superior picture integrity from corner to corner. Epson's 1080Perfect Video Processing is optimized to reproduce images without noise and artifacts, while maintaining the full integrity of the signal.
- Epson Absolute Black Technology also helps to deliver dramatically high contrast ratios (up to 12,000:1) adding depth to images for the most captivating scenes possible.
- Epson is the only projector manufacturer that develops and uses its own lamp technology. Epson's exclusive E-TORL Lamp is engineered to project light more efficiently, and to maximize brightness and uniformity across the entire screen.
