Three models are available: the EH-TW8300, EH-TW9300, EH-TW9300W (where the W stands for wireless).
Each model has been designed to offer 4K enhancement, UHD Blu-ray and high dynamic range support. They also feature lens position memory for the new 16-piece glass lens.
All three projectors can display a high contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1. Epson’s 3LCD panels emit a high White and Colour Light Output of 2,500 lumens for rich colours, with a gamut that displays the entire sRGB and DCI colour spaces. Frame interpolation and detail enhancement help to create sharp images and smooth-flowing video movie displays.
Motorised optics provide a powered 2.1x optical zoom, powered focus and a new powered lens shift of +/-96.3% vertical and +/-47.1% horizontal. Installation of the projectors is straightforward and users can quickly switch between different aspect ratios, as the projectors are capable of storing up to ten different lens memory positions. The long-life projector lamp enables users to watch a film every day on the big screen for the next seven years.
The EH-TW9300W 4Ke WirelessHD projector makes it easy to stream content to a projector from a smartphone, games console, Blu-ray player or other compatible device. Users can also view 4K content over WiHD, also providing flexibility when positioning the projector. The new projectors will be available locally from September at the following RRPs: EH-TW9300W – AU$4,999; EH-TW9300 – AU$4,799 and EH-TW8300 – AU$4,499.
