Delivering enhanced detail in Full HD 1080p with up to a 120,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, the projectors include advanced Epson Image Enhancement Technology for sharp and refined images with lifelike smoothness and clarity.

"The Home Cinema 3100, 3700 and 3900 are dynamic home theater projectors that deliver a vivid, immersive viewing experience in living rooms, game rooms and more," said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, Projectors, Epson America. "There isn't a big-screen TV that can compete with the size and immersive experience offered by a projected image, and with lens shift, these models are easy to set up and install."

The new projectors feature horizontal and vertical lens shift, which allows positioning flexibility with an incredible range of up to ± 60 percent on the vertical axis and up to ± 24 percent on the horizontal axis.

All three next-generation projectors support HDMI®, plus MHL®(2), for seamless compatibility with cable/satellite boxes, Blu-ray Discs®, DVD players, and gaming consoles. Stream content from favorite devices, including Chromecast™, Roku®(3), Amazon Fire™ TV, Apple TV®, and more.
