Epson launches four home theater projectors for pandemic movie nights
If you’re craving a theatrical experience but aren’t ready to risk a trip to the local movie theater, you’ve probably considered buying a projector. Here with four tempting options is Epson and its new home theater projector models 880, 1080, 2200, 2250. All four projectors are relatively inexpensive and designed for home theaters.
All four new Epson home cinema projectors offer full HD / 1080p image resolution. The 880 and 1080 models offer 3,300 and 3,400 lumens, respectively, while the 2200 and 2250 models offer 2,700 lumens each. Android TV is only integrated in the two high-end models 2200 and 2250. These two models also have picture frame interpolation with a contrast ratio of 35,000: 1 and 70,000: 1, and the 22500 model offers special support for lens shifts.
All four home theater models feature the company’s three-chip 3LCD technology and dynamic contrast ratio for what Epson calls “vivid, true-to-life content”. Likewise, all four have user-selectable color modes and built-in speakers, although the bottom two models only have 2-watt speakers while the two high-end models have 10-watt bass reflex speakers.
There are some other notable feature differences between the models. The two high-end projectors have, for example, Bluetooth connectivity as well as gamma uplift and support for an aspect ratio of 21: 9. Further differences are a fixed focus on the 880 model, while the 1080 and 2200 models have a 1.2 -x zoom and the 2250 have 1.6x zoom.
While these models cannot compete with the high-end 4K HDR home projectors, Epson’s new line of products is affordable enough for many consumers looking to replace their TVs. The four new projectors are now available at the following prices:
– Epson Home Cinema 880: $ 599.99
– Epson Home Cinema 1080: $ 749.99
– Epson Home Cinema 2200: $ 899.99
– Epson Home Cinema 2250: $ 999.99
