Epson Debuts 3LCD Reflective Laser Projectors….For Real This Time!

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Epson recently announced its newest line of Pro Cinema projectors with 3LCD Reflective laser technology, projectors that were showed off a couple of years ago but never made it to market. The new devices, known as the Epson PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 4K Enhancement Projector and the Pro Cinema LS9600e Wireless 1080p Projector, are capable of producing bright, clear images with up to 1,500 lumens of color brightness and 1,500 lumens of white brightness. In addition to that, these projectors are also have good contrast ratios along with an advanced suite of calibration tools.

According to Epson, these projectors were developed to “meet the requirements of today’s most demanding home entertainment consumers, providing home theater designers with state-of-the-art solutions for creating unparalleled home theater experiences.”

These projectors combine Epson’s new 3LCD Reflective technology and a laser light source in order to deliver an Absolute Black contrast ratio and one of the industry’s largest color gamuts. The Pro Cinema LS10000 adds 4K Enhancement Technology for high sharpness, clarity and detail by shifting each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels, doubling the resolution and surpassing Full HD image quality without visible stair-stepping or pixel gaps.

Epson’s innovative 3LCD Reflective system allows custom installers to ensure that the images filmmakers intended are the actual images that their customers are seeing. Both projectors are capable of producing an Absolute Black contrast ratio that displays zero lumens during full-black scenes along with improved pixel density and increased aperture ratios for smoother, film-like pictures.

In addition to that, both projectors also offer advanced projection features, including Full HD 1080p in 2D and 3D with Super Resolution and Detail Enhancement for sharp, rich images, exceptional frame rate interpolation capabilities and Bright 3D Drive projection for greater brightness when viewing 3D content, according to the company.

Moreover, the projectors are also designed for convenient installations with 2.1x power zoom, power focus, lens shift up to 90% vertical and 40% horizontal and lens position memory that can store up to 10 different settings for standard 16:9 or 4:3 projection areas and 2.35:1 wide cinema ratio.

The laser light engine offers up to 30,000 hours of life with rapid warm-up or cool down time for fast, quiet operation. A WirelessHD transmitter has also been added for added installation and operation flexibility. The Wireless HD transmitter allows you to connect up to five HDMI devices simultaneously with one HDMI out connection and one optical port for switching between sources and MHL connectivity to display content from MHL-enabled tablets and smartphones.

According to Epson, both the PowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000 and PowerLite Pro Cinema LS9600e will be available through CEDIA and specialty dealers in the fall for less than $8,000. In addition to that, each projector also comes with Epson’s three-year limited warranty and support.

Sony’s 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector: The $50,000 Projector That You Will Never See In Real Life

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Way back in January, Sony had unveiled a new projector at CES. It was really impressive, and used lasers to project a really nice 4K image. They were advertising it as a luxury device, and we all knew that it was going to be really expensive. The price was thought to be around $30,000 at the time, which many believed was an absolute joke.

Well, the joke just got a whole lot funnier, because the Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector is going to be available in September for $50,000. Yes, you read that correctly. Not only that, but it is only going to be available to people who live in the New York City metropolitan area. If you don’t live there, you can’t buy it anyway.

Sony did actually deliver what they promised here. And if you are in the 1% of the population who can even say that you’re interested in this projector, then you will be able to order it from Sony by phone or on their website.

The 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector uses an SXRD laser to produce its 4096 x 2160 picture. It also has four HDMI inputs, Triluminous display, it supports 3D, and has built in speakers. Although it may not be worth as much as they are asking for it, it is actually a monster. This thing is literally like having a movie theater.

Now, lets say that you are interested in a nice short throw projector, but you don’t want to sell your house in order to get one… There are some good options out there. Plus, if you sold your house to buy this then you’d have to project movies onto trees, and I don’t think that would work very well. You can get a really nice projector for just a few hundred dollars these days.

And if you are interested in something that looks really great for way less money than you would spend buying one, you can always rent a fantastic projector for events or business meetings.

Sony Has A More Portable Version Of Their New Short Throw 4K Projector

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

sony ultra short throwWho doesn’t love a good movie or a good TV show? It’s always more enjoyable when you can view your movies or TV shows in pristine visual resolution. In case you’ve been living under a rock, there are new resolution rates that making watching movies or TV shows look like you’re at the movies, or even in the movies. For the longest time we’ve had the 720p and 1080p resolution rates as the standards at which we view our programs. Now we have 4K resolution, and it definitely looks remarkable. The only thing is that maybe you want to watch your programming on something other than your TV. This is where a 4K projector would come into play. The only problem is that Sony’s newest one, ¬†shown off at CES earlier this year, is big and costs about as much as it looks like it would cost.

Luckily for us, they have developed a portable version of their new 4K Ultra Short Throw projector.

It’s Tiny

The newest 4K ultra short throw projector from Sony was shown off at CES 2014, and it looks incredible. The picture quality looks remarkable as well. The only setback, aside from the $50,000 price tag, is the fact that it’s very, very large. The projector itself looks like a very wide TV stand. Well Sony’s portable version is quite a bit smaller. The portable version of the 4K ultra short throw projector is roughly about the size of a box of Kleenex. It’s definitely a lot smaller than its predecessor, and to be honest, that makes it much more interesting to me personally. The features that it includes also give you a reason to look at it, and consider investing in it.

It’s Interactive

146920478That’s right. You can directly interact with the images that this projector displays. The projector itself beams a 23-inch image of whatever it is you’re viewing at the moment. It expands on something that was already looking really good with the larger version, as all of the images are still being displayed in stunning 4K resolution. These 4K images are also very interactive as you can stick it to your refrigerator door and have it display pictures or reminders that you can then move about with your finger. It can also connect wirelessly to your phone so that you can show photos directly from your phone and have the projector beam them out immediately. The interactive mode means that you can move the photos, or if you’re reading an article, magazine, or cooking recipe, you can “move” the pages as you need to.

So Why Get It?

It’s a lot smaller than the larger model that was shown off at the CES event earlier this year. It’s extremely portable, and it seems that portable projectors are getting more and more popular. This particular projector is also waterproof, so if you feel like watching a movie while relaxing in the tub, you can totally do that. It’s all really up to you once you invest in this projector. The 23-inch display isn’t a bad screen size considering the size of the actual device. No price has been given on the new portable version of this projector, but something tells me that it won’t be in the $50,000 range like its larger counterpart. It could definitely be a good investment for recreational purposes, or even for smaller business meetings where you want to make things a bit more interactive.

No matter which way you look at it, 4K is still doing everything it can to make sure it shows up in your life somehow. If you’re looking for a projector, why not get a portable one, especially one that’s short throw in 4K. Sony just might be onto something here.
