Epson announced this week the addition of two new models in its 4K PRO-UHD projector line: The Home Cinema 5050UB and wireless Home Cinema 5050UBe. As their names indicate, what sets the two models apart is the latter's support for Epson's WirelessHD transmitter, which features four HMDI inputs and allows you to transmit 4K content up to 30fps without long HDMI runs.
Both projectors rely on pixel-shifting to deliver Ultra HD resolution (or full HD 3D), and support HDR10, HDMI 2.0, and HDCP 2.2.
