Epson has announced new additions to its award-winning lineup of Home Cinema projectors--the Home Cinema 1040 and Home Cinema 1440. Featuring up to 4,400 lumens of color brightness and 4,400 lumens of white brightness, Epson's latest Home Cinema solutions bring a stunning, widescreen, Full HD 1080p big-screen experience to today's living rooms. These versatile projectors feature advanced image quality technology, built-in sound and convenient setup tools for flexile placement, as well as two HDMI ports and MHL support for connecting a Blu-ray player, gaming console, ChromecastT, Roku Stick, Apple TV and more--transforming the projectors into a home entertainment hub.
"The new projectors offer today's households a convenient, affordable and powerful big-screen experience. Beyond the flexibility, the Home Cinema 1440 is also one of the brightest home projectors available on the market--this is a flat-panel killer," said Jason Palmer, marketing manager, Epson America. "Why settle for a 65-inch or 70-inch TV when you can have something four times bigger with bright, lifelike, sharp details, a portable design, and simple setup for a truly captivating experience even in large, well-lit environments."
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness (color light output), and Epson projectors have up to 3x Higher Color Brightness than leading competitive projectors, and they feature 25 percent lower power consumption for lower energy costs. The Home Cinema 1040 and 1440 utilize 3LCD, 3-chip technology for brilliant images with vivid color and feature built-in color modes for the best possible quality and color for users to enjoy their favorite TV show, movie or videogame from virtually anywhere--indoors or out.
