Epson releases new Home Cinema 4000

Today Epson has announced and commenced shipments of a new home theater projector, the Home Cinema 4000...

This projector has an MSRP of $2199 and an official street price of $1999. So it is particularly newsworthy in that it is the industry's first projector under $2000 to combine all of these highly desirable features:

  • 4K compatibility/enhancement (display of native 4K signals via pixel shift)
  • Significant upscaling of 1080p source resolution
  • Full HD 3D
  • Automated Lens Memory for Cinemascope installations
  • Powered lens -- 2.1x zoom, focus, V + H lens shift
  • Wide DCI-P3 Color Gamut

That is a lot of projector for under $2,000. We suspect Epson will sell a lot of them. For more information, see these:

Wow, that is a lot of projector for the money. If they just have input lag nailed down under 35ms or so, I might be getting a new projector.

With this having a $600 lower street price, I wonder how it compares to the outstanding Epson 5040UB.

How does this compares to the 5040UB or Optoma UHD65?

Have had extreme luck with Panasonic AE8000. No small thanks to this site. Perfect room. 13'x 16'. Excellent ambient light control. Basic white da-light permwall white snap on screen. Just a hair over 11' ceiling throw to 106" screen. Classic DIY that your site has aided for many years. Waiting for the right time to jump to 4k. Gut tells me I can't do much better right now. Limited content for one. HDR 4k streaming not quite there either and most importantly without proper audio to match from streaming services. 7.1 or Atmos, etc isn't exactly achieved. 4k isn't either. Being the ae8000 is a common staple, wondering if you'd begin offering a baseline 1080p like ae8000 to the new 4k or pseudo 4k options for those of us who have enjoyed and benefitted from this site for so long. What kind of a jump would the Epson be? It's been a long while and a lot of us have revved up 3-5k 2 times over for the next jump. Lmk
