Epson has announced two new models in its home cinema projector line-up. Taking over as the company's flagship models from the Epson EH-TW3500, EH-TW4500 and EH-TW5500 home cinema projectors, which were released in 2009, the Epson EH-R4000 and EH-R2000 use a new 3LCD panel design to increase contrast ratios and response times.

The new Epson EH-R4000 has a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and a native contrast ratio of 40,000:1 — 10 times the 4000:1 rating of last year's EH-TW3500. The newer mid-range EH-R2000 boasts 500,000:1 dynamic and 25,000:1 native contrast ratios. Pricing has not been finalised, but the EH-R4000 and EH-R2000 are expected to retail for around $5500 and $7500 respectively.

Electronic zoom, focus and lens shift compensation have also been included, as has a lens memory function that re-positions the projector lens when the viewing aspect ratio is altered. The new home theatre projectors will be released in October. The existing EH-TW4500 and EH-TW5500 home cinema projectors will be retained in Epson's model line-up and the budget EH-TW3500 model will be upgraded.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
