Epson Home Cinema 1080

Epson this afternoon gave a boost to its PowerLite projectors through the new Home Cinema 1080. The 3LCD system is the most affordable 1080p projector ever at $2,999, Epson claims, and can beat direct-view sets at their own game: the 1080's 14-lens system can display an image a large as 120 inches in the right room.

The new PowerLite is also one of the only 1080p projectors in the world (second only to Epson's own Pro Cinema 1080) to have HDMI 1.3 input for higher color depths from HD sources. Its contrast ratio is said to be the same, strong 12,000:1 as the earlier premium model. Shipments for the Home Cinema 1080 start in April.
