Epson Launches Flagship 3LCD Projector with New D7 Panel Technology for the Ultimate Full High Definition Home Cinema

SINGAPORE, 8 June 2009 — Epson launches the Epson EH-TW5000, the brand’s latest Full High Definition (HD), 1080p flagship projector, that is engineered to offer the best possible home cinema experience.

Equipped with Epson's new D7 panel technology with C²Fine, the EH-TW5000 provides stunning 3LCD picture quality with a ground breaking dynamic contrast ratio of 75,000:1.

Ms Felicia Gan, General Manager of Epson Singapore says: “The EH-TW5000 is an exceptional choice in home cinema projectors. Its sleek black and silver design and outstanding range of state-of-the-art features will provide the highest quality images in your own home. This projector marks the continued innovation of Epson’s home cinema projection technology and confirms our position as number one in the global market.”

The EH-TW5000 reproduces outstanding pictures, whatever the content, with full HD resolution at 1080p. Whether viewing movies, sporting events, digital pictures or playing video games, this projector’s range of features and stylish design will ensure this high quality product is the centrepiece of your big screen home cinema experience.

Incorporating Epson’s innovative 3LCD technology, the EH-TW5000 provides brighter images, more accurate colour reproduction and finer grey scaling. For the first time ever, an amazing dynamic contrast ratio of 75,000:1 has been reached, thanks to the new D7 C²Fine panels, advanced DeepBlack technology and an improved E-TORL lamp to minimize light leakage and ensure jet blacks. Furthermore, Epson’s improved Cinema Filter allows a viewing experience second to none in any lighting environment.

According to Ms Gan, “This state of the art projector boasts some terrific new features. Optical x2.1 zoom and easy horizontal and vertical lens shift make the EH-TW5000 exceptionally convenient and easy to install. A true cinema screen format of 2.35:1 is also a reality with the projector’s anamorphic wide mode (using third party lens), so movies can be enjoyed without black bands at the top and bottom of the screen.”

Built with the advanced HQV processor, the EH-TW5000 features a true HD 12-bit video processing and 4-4 pull-down, resulting in stunning picture quality and motion flow. The frame interpolation feature also ensures perfectly smooth video playback; blurring is suppressed and motion pictures are much sharper to offer film-like images. The ISF certification means that the EH-TW5000 can be calibrated by an Epson dealer to ensure the performance of the projector is professionally fine-tuned to suit its environment. Colour isolation calibration is also possible without the need for optical color filters.

Priced at S$6,688 including GST, the Epson EH-TW5000 is available now.
