Epson PowerLite Pro 1080

Adding a new range-topping model to its front projector line, Epson this morning revealed the PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 (not pictured), the company's first 1080p home entertainment projector. Though the company is new to providing the full HD resolution, it says the new system is designed from the outset to beat rivals in terms of image quality. A new three-chip LCD system named C2 Fine provides both faithful color reproduction and exceptional contrast levels, Epson claims: in combination with Absolute Black processing technology and the company's own E-TORL lamp, the new PowerLite Pro is capable of a high 12,000:1 contrast ratio. An updated AccuCinema lens also promises an evenly projected image. The projector is expected to ship to dealers in January for $4,999.
