Epson Home Cinema 4000 Projector Introduced
On Monday, June 26, 2017, Epson® introduced its new Home Cinema 4000 HD projector.
The new projector features 4K Enhancement Technology (4Ke) and HDR 10-bit performance. The Home Cinema 4000 delivers 2,200 lumens of color and white brightness. While providing 100 percent Pure Color Brightness, the projector offers a contrast ratio of up to 140,000:1 on screens from 50-inches to 300-inches wide.
Home Cinema 4000 Features
4K Enhancement Technology shifts each pixel diagonally by 0.5 pixels to double the resolution and quality of 1080p HD. This allows the projector to handle 4K UHD sources. The projector can also upscale 1080p content to 4Ke resolution. In 3D mode, resolution is 1920 × 1080. For more information on the Home Cinema 4000 and 4K and HDR sources, please see Epson.com/HDRCompatibility.
The Epson Home Cinema 4000 accepts a range of source devices including cable/satellite receivers, gaming consoles, Chromecast™, Roku®, Amazon Fire™ TV, Apple TV®, and home theater PCs. The projector does not provide sound output. To enable sound, you must connect your source device to a home theater receiver; then, you connect the home theater receiver to the projector.
