Andy Ruffell / 6 years ago
Recently, Epson Singapore introduced a whole new selection a projectors for various uses such as education, business and homes; with a total of 13 new models, let’s get started and see what they have in store.
The new products proposed divide into two central products then three sub categories with each one offering various features, but with a price range of $699 to $4,299, prepare yourself to break the bank if you need one.
The Epson MG-850HD is one of the companies first projector supporting Apple devices, which can be connected to a simple dock that slides out from the rear. Conveniently no application is needed, simply dock your iPhone, iPad or iPod and use the remote control to navigate and play your media easily.
Equipped with a set of two 10W high quality stereo speakers, you’re sure not to be left out of the sound enjoyment.
Available this month, the Expson MG-850HD can be yours for $1,299.
Coming in two version, the most interesting, and therefore most expensive one is the EH-TW8000, which could probably be defined as the projector’s enthusiasts best friend.
Espon even claims it produces the brightest 3D images in the world. As far specs go, the projector provides a frame refresh rate of 480Hz, this is said to be twice as fast as other 3D projectors and minimizes “blackout time” between 3D frames.
The EH-TW8000 also features 2D to 3D conversion, Super Resolution and Frame Interpolcation to improve image quality, and as if that wasn’t enough, the lens shift and pixel alignment correction capabilities gives the ability to the user to shift images easily while the projector remains in its original place.
The Epson EH-TW8000 is also available this month and comes bundled with a pair of 3D active shutter glasses for the price of $4,299, while an extra pair of 3D active shutter glasses will cost you $120 each.
If the price tag is too high, you can still fall back on the EH-TW6000, mind you it’s still price at $2,999 but it shares the same specs as the EH-TW8000 as well as additional features including a Horizontal Keystone Adjuster and C2Fine technologies, both of which to achieve great image quality. Only difference is that the 6000 version doesn’t feature the 2D to 3D conversion and doesn’t come with a pair of 3D glasses.
