Epson has introduced two new Home Cinema projectors designed to deliver an immersive 4K experience to home theaters.
The Home Cinema 5050UB and wireless Home Cinema 5050UBe 4K PRO-UHD projectors feature 2,600 lumens of equal color and white brightness, HDR10 and Epson UltraBlack technology. Leveraging full 10-bit color output — plus proprietary dedicated processors for resolution enhancement, HDR, and image processing — the new Home Cinema 4K PRO-UHD projectors are designed to display incredible color accuracy, brightness and image detail.
The Home Cinema 5050UB and 5050UBe are powered by Epson’s 4K PRO-UHD resolution enhancement technology, a high-performance optical engine that generates high color and white brightness, color accuracy and dramatic contrast with HDR10, according to the company. They fully support 4K HDR content at 60Hz.
Other features include a contrast ratio up to 1,000,000:1, a wide color gamut displaying the entire DCI-P3 color space, and Epson’s proprietary 15-element glass projection lens.
The Home Cinema 5050UB and 5050UBe have installation flexibility with a wide lens shift of up to ±96 percent on the vertical axis and up to ±47 percent on the horizontal axis. For accurate color reproduction, the new projectors feature low Delta E and include a CalMAN pattern generator calibration tool. Plus, with Epson’s advanced 3-chip, 3LCD technology, the projectors display images free from any distracting rainbow effect or white segments, the company said.
Available only with the Home Cinema 5050UBe model, you get an additional Epson WirelessHD transmitter with four HMDI inputs, allowing you to wirelessly transmit 4K content up to 30 fps.
The Home Cinema 5050UBe ($3,299 suggested retail) and 5050UB ($2,999) 4K PRO-UHD projectors are now available through select retailers and the Epson online store.
