Epson makes 3D home entertainment portable

Jun 25, 2013

Epson has announced the EH-TW550 – an affordable, lightweight, 720p HD-ready 3D projector – ideal for all-round family home entertainment, such as watching sport, TV and movies, and playing games.

With its slim design, the EH-TW550 is light enough to move between rooms or to carry to a friend’s house. Set-up is quick and easy, thanks to manual horizontal and automatic vertical keystone correction.

Epson’s 3LCD technology and an equally high white and colour light output of up to 3 000 lumens ensures that colours are lifelike, and that every detail accurately reproduced.

Colour can be optimised to suit usage and environment with a choice of four modes: living room; dynamic; theatre; and game.

Kelvin Reynolds, regional office manager at Epson South Africa, says: “This affordable HD-ready 2D and 3D projector is great for the whole family – from kids’ gaming parties to family movie nights. It also comes with a three-year lamp warranty for extra peace of mind.”

The EH-TW550 is compatible with the USB-rechargeable, radio frequency, active shutter 3D glasses (sold separately), which can be used up to 10m from the projector.

The portable EH-TW550 projector offers:

* 3LCD technology with equally bright white and colour light output for vivid, lifelike images;

* Choice of colour modes to suit environment and usage;

* Radio frequency (RF) 3D technology, providing a strong signal for 3D glasses;

* Three-year lamp warranty;

* HD-ready 720p big-screen experience;

* Deep blacks due to a 5 000:1 contrast ratio;

* An equally high white and colour light output of 3 000 lumens;

* Four colour modes (living room, dynamic, theatre and game); and

* USB-rechargeable active shutter glasses for 3D viewing.

The EH-TW550 is available at a recommended price of R11 055.00, including VAT.
