Epson introduced a new flagship home theater projector that is uniquely
engineered to maximize the benefits of 1080p, the industry's highest
definition video signal to date.
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.
