Epson Powerlite

EPSON improved its Powerlite 30, 50, and 60 lines of LCD 3D projectors. All three of the new models work with active shutter glasses for 3D and do 2D-to-3D conversion as well as a split screen feature so two viewers can watch separate sources in 2D. Each projector comes with two pairs of rechargeable 3D glasses that last up to 40 hours or up to three hours with a new three-minute quick charge.

Like in previous model years, the “e” versions include a built-in wireless HD receiver along with an external transmitter and five HDMI inputs. 

The 5020UB and 6020UB models offer 320,000:1 contrast ratio and 2,400 lumens brightness (color and white brightness). Both models are THX certified, include Epson’s Super Resolution technology, THX 2D and 3D Cinema viewing modes, and FineFrame technology for smoother frame interpolation and sharper video quality (2D Mode), cinema filter feature for larger color space and improved color fidelity and a Fujinon OptiCinema lens (2.1 zoom ratio. The Pro Cinema 6020UB adds two anamorphic lens modes, ISF calibration, color isolation, a ceiling mount, cable cover and extra lamp for added installation flexibility and customization.

The entry level 3020 and 3020e (wireless) are only slightly less bright at 2,300 and 40,000:1 contrast ratio. All models will be available this fall. The 6020 for under $4,000, 5020 under $3,000 and 3020 under $2,000.
