Las Vegas (NV) – Epson is at long last rolling out a home theater projector first announced several months ago. It is called the PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB and it prices around $3000.
The 6500 UB is the latest of Epson’s 3LCD 1080p front projectors. Epson has equipped this projector with 1920 x 1080 resolution, the latest 3LCD D7 chip set and a built-in HQV Reon-VX processor by Silicon Optix. The projector is also capable of a 75,000:1 contrast ratio.
Other features Epson is highlighting on the 6500 UB include a special multi-lens system which offers sharper images, 1600 lumens max, dual HDMI 1.3a inputs, six color modes and an improved airflow system. A manual lens shift scheme allows as well for 100% vertical and 50% horizontal movements to accommodate a wide range of room configurations.
The 6500 UB will be out mid-month.
