Epson's EMP-TW1000 - an advanced and powerful 1080p home cinema projector

March 2007

Sydney, 5th March 2007: The high definition digital Epson EMP-TW1000 projector is for home cinema enthusiasts who want movies to flow effortlessly across their screens in incredible detail with rich deep colours and smooth life-like tones.

The high definition EMP-TW1000 is also the perfect partner for professional photographers who want their projected images to have the same rich detail and contrast range as their finest gallery print.

The world's first projector with HDMI 1.3 supporting full 10 bit colour processing, the EMP-TW1000 receives double the information available from previous HDMI versions, producing up to 1.07 billion colours that deliver a deep and rich image expression across a broad colour gamut with ultra-smooth tonal gradations.

Designed for cinema-like ambience, the EMP-TW1000 has a very high maximum contrast ratio of 12000:1. The enhanced auto iris function regulates brightness and contrast 60 times a second to project clear, detailed, rich and vivid images no matter what the light levels within the scene are.

With true high definition resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, each of the three Crystal Clear Fine LCD panels gives the EMP-TW1000 the highest resolution digital signal available producing stunning images from HD broadcast programs, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray players.

And of course Epson's 3LCD technology with no moving parts and no interruptions to the light path generates bright, natural images, and smooth and sharp playback of action scenes with no colour break-up.

The new lens with a wide 2:1 zoom ratio increases the range of set up options by allowing for forward and backward movement in relation to the screen. The short focus lens can project a large 100 inch screen from approximately 3 metres.

Featured in the EMP-TW1000 is a flexible vertical and horizontal lens shift function which increases the various set up options by allowing users to reposition the image without compromising image quality, making it possible to move the projector to the side of the room while still viewing an undistorted image.

Epson developed the high performance ETORL lamp featured in the EMP-TW1000 and many other Epson projectors which effectively eliminates light leakage and minimises light diffraction. The ETORL lamp system has an inbuilt cinema filter which allows for wider colour spaces and colour purity. This Epson innovation can optically adjust the colour tone for accurate colour reproduction.

3LCD projectors operate at lower lamp temperatures than other projection systems of similar brightness, allowing for quick start up and shut down and most importantly, making the projector quieter with less fan noise.

With six preset colour modes - Dynamic, Living Room, Natural, Theatre, Theatre Black 1 and 2 - the EMP-TW1000 allows you to select the mode that best suits your viewing environment. For those who like to fine tune the projector to the precise room dynamics, a powerful six-axis colour adjustment capability gives you total control over your video output.

The EMP-TW1000 has an easy to use remote with a full range of functions. The remote has a light activation button for use in a dark room.

The Epson EMP-TW1000 high definition digital projector is RRP $6999 including GST and is available through selected AV specialists.
