Epson launches new 4K PRO-UHD projector technology

02 Apr 2019

Epson announced its PRO-UHD projector technology, which combines brightness, colour and detail to deliver a 4K experience for the professionally installed home theatre, office and DIY home entertainment enthusiast.

4K PRO-UHD is an umbrella term Epson have coined that comprises a suite of three key technologies developed to power their latest generation of projectors, starting with the just-launched EH-TW8400, EH-TW9400 and EH-TW9400W. 

Whilst not native 4K the new range supposedly eschews software processing and instead deploys a combination of dedicated high power hardware processors – one each for resolution enhancement, HDR and image processing. 

This supposedly allows the projector to always perform to the very best of its ability, without sharing resources or processing power and without interruption to signal or image quality.

The range was specifically designed so that movies can be shown the way they were meant to be seen, on the big screen, with no rainbow effect creating an exceptionally immersive viewing experience. An even brighter, higher quality, HDR experience also allows the projectors to use outside of a dedicated home theatre room.

The colour that is a hallmark of 4K PRO-UHD is a function of the core 3LCD panel technology that powers all Epson projectors – whereby each primary colour has its own, dedicated LCD panel – and an exceptionally wide colour gamut. In fact, it can supposedly display the full DCI-P3 colour gamut, which is the colour standard used in commercial cinema.

4K PRO-UHD also delivers dramatic detail by employing a new, accelerated version of its pixel shifting technology, dedicated hardware 12-bit digital signal processing and an advanced aspheric glass lens system. 

The EH-TW8400 is HDR10 compliant to take advantage of HDR content while delivering equal colour and white brightness. It can also display the full DCI-P3 colour gamut in Digital Cinema Mode, an extreme level of colour performance that is 50% wider than typical 1-Chip Rec 709 projectors.
