Epson reveals 1080p projector with 5.1 sound, screen

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Mon July 16, 2007

Epson Ensemble Home Cinema

Epson on Monday recognized the problems with setting up home theaters for its PowerLite rear projectors and unveiled the Ensemble Home Cinema. The system includes all the equipment needed for a home theater for those without the inclination or time to hand-pick components: either a 1080p- or 720p rear projector is supported by an upscaling AV receiver, an Atlantic 5.1 surround system, and a unique 100-inch retractable screen with speakers for the front audio channels. Even the cabling and mounting brackets to fully install the system are included, Epson boasts.

Epson hasn't named all the components that will be part of the shipping product but notes that the projector can be ceiling-mounted to all but eliminate the footprint of the system in a room. Bundles should arrive in home theater stores by November with the 720p version selling for $5,000 and the premium 1080p, full HD version on offer for $7,000. [via Chip Chick]
