Epson has updated the range of its 3LCD projectors with the launch of the three models EH-TW7400 (with white finish), EH-TW9400 and EH-TW9400W at IFA 2018. All three Epson projectors offer the same resolution: they are capable of handling all 4K input devices.. The operation is similar to that of the JVC e-shift technology: the projector operates by translating images of half a pixel diagonally.
The brightness reaches 2,400 lumens (both CLO, Color Light Output and WLO, White Light Output) on TW7400 and the 2,600 lumens on TW9400 and TW9400W. The lamp is accredited with a duration of 3,500 hours in standard mode and 5,000 in low consumption mode. The dynamic contrast ratio is 1,200,000:1 (there is a dynamic iris) on the two top-end models and 200,000:1 on TW7400. The lens is fully motorized: the 2.1x zoom and there is also the lens-shift (the ability to translate images vertically and horizontally) with an excursion ± 96.3% vertically and ± 47.1% in Horizon.
Epson TW9400 and TW9400W also offer a series of banks to store the position of the lens, useful for automatically recalling their settings. This is a very convenient function for those using screens in 21:9 in this way you do not have to adjust all the parameters manually when switching from 16:9 to 21:9 and vice versa. The firing ratio is 1.35 – 2.84:1. Full compatibility with 3D is guaranteed (through active glasses).
Epson TW9400 and TW9400 are HDR compatible in HDR10 and HLG formats. They also offer HDMI 2.0b ports with HDCP 2.2 capable of exploiting all 18 Gbps. TW7400 renounces HLG instead. EH-TW9400W adds HDMI wireless connectivity with a separate transmitter.
Epson EH-TW7400 will be available from September at the indicative price of EUR 2,499. Instead, EH-TW9400 and EH-TW9400W will arrive in November with prices that should follow those of the TW9300 series at the time of launch (EUR 3,299 for the standard model and EUR 3,699 for the variant with wireless connectivity).
