This morning, Epson Singapore has announced new projectors for education, business and homes which include Epson EB-S/X/W, EB-1800, EB-400 series, EH-TW8000, EH-TW6000 and MG-850HD; a total of 13 models.
The Epson MG-850HD is the company's first high definition projector for Apple devices, and comes with a convenient dock that fits the iPhone, iPad and iPod. You don't need any special applications installed; simply dock the Apple device and use the remote control provided to navigate and play your photos, songs or movies. The MG-850HD also comes with a set of two 10W high quality stereo speakers for your enjoyment. It is available this month at S$1,299.
The Epson EH-TW8000 high definition home theatre projector claims to offer the brightest 3D images in the world. It provides 480Hz frame refresh rate which is said to be twice as fast as other 3D projectors and minimises "blackout time" between 3D frames. On top of that, the EH-TW8000 features 2D to 3D conversion, Super Resolution and Frame Interpolcation technologies for improved image quality. It also has lens shift and pixel alignment correction capabilities that lets users shift image easily while the projector remains in its installed place. The Epson EH-TW8000 is available this month with a price tag of S$4,299 and comes with a pair of 3D active shutter glasses. If you need to purchase more, the 3D active shutter glasses are retailing at S$120 each.
For those who want a more affordable home theatre projector can check out the the Epson EH-TW6000 that is priced at S$2,999. It shares the same image engine as the EH-TW8000 with 480Hz refresh rate and is equipped with a Horizontal Keystone Adjuster and C2Fine technology to achieve lustrous, high quality images. However, it does not have 2D to 3D conversion and has no 3D active shutter glasses bundled with the unit.
