"Epson has been a leading manufacturer of LCD technology for several years. As the trend for home theater systems continues to grow, Epson is ideally positioned to offer a wide range of high-value, high-performance projectors to meet the diverse needs of the market," said Rajeev Mishra, director, Home Entertainment Division, Epson. As part of Epson's launch into the home entertainment market, these projectors join an introductory line-up of HDTV LCD projection televisions, under the EPSON Livingstation(TM) branding, and the previously announced PowerLite Home 10 home theater projector.
Available in March 2004 through CEDIA dealers and specialty audio-visual retailers nationwide, the Cinema 200 and Cinema 500 are HDTV-ready and will retail for $2,999 and $4,999, respectively.
"The PowerLite Cinema projectors fill the gap between ultra high-end home theater products and entry level projectors, and include features and image quality often found on projectors priced twice as much," added Mishra.
The flagship Cinema 500 is packed with state-of-the-art video technology, including Faroudja's DCDi digital processing, 3:2 pull down, 3D Y/C separation, 3D digital gamma correction and 3D noise reduction. Pixelworks' acclaimed DNX Video Chipset powers the Cinema 200 with built-in Y/C separation, 3D digital gamma correction and 3D noise reduction.
Designed for the dedicated media room market, these models deliver robust ease of installation features and seamless control for the advanced home theater enthusiast. The Cinema series projectors include a manual lens shift function, which enables a shift range of 2.5 screens vertically, and two screens horizontally, and a 1.5x power zoom lens that attains the highest degree of positioning freedom in the home projector class. The Cinema 500 includes an HDMI connector for several of today's most advanced HDTV tuners and DVD players.
