Epson has launched a new projector designed for home theaters, the Home Cinema 4010 PRO-UHD. This model brings features not commonly found on consumer-tier projectors, including Ultra HD resolutions and support for High Dynamic Range (HDR). Epson promises an “exceptional 4K experience” for buyers, but they won’t get it cheap.
The new Home Cinema 4010 features the maker’s own PRO-UHD technology, which includes what Epson says is an “enhanced version” of its pixel-shifting and resolution-boosting tech. The 4K and HDR support is joined by DCI-P3 color gamut, a 100-percent balanced color brightness, and the promise of “full-colored imagery.”
The 4010 model boasts a huge 200,000:1 contrast levels, 2400 lumens, and support for HDR10. Videos can be output with a maximum 4096 x 2160 resolution, and there’s a 12-bit digital color processing chip that includes Frame Interpolation. The physical lens and motor construction is equally notable.
The new Epson model features a three-axis precision motor capable of 47-percent vertical and 96-percent horizontal shifting, as well as 2.1x zoom, 10 preset positions, and there’s powered focus. This is joined by a lens featuring 15 glass elements and the promise of “virtually no” chromatic aberration and hot spots.
The projector offers many features only available in business-tier models, and Epson boasts that it’s able to offer that at under the $2,000 price point…but not by much. The Home Cinema 4010 PRO-UHD is available now for $1,999.99 USD.
