Epson has expanded its line of full HD 1080p Ultra Bright Pro Cinema Projectors with models G6970WU, G6570WU, 4855WU, and the wireless Pro Cinema 1985. 

Featuring up to 6,000 lumens of color brightness and 6,000 lumens of white brightness, Epson’s latest projectors provide custom installers, sports applications, and AV enthusiasts with solutions specifically designed to provide exceptional image quality and wireless connectivity in large, open ambient light environments.

“Epson is optimizing the home theater experience beyond the dedicated home theater room and into expansive settings – like media rooms with large windows – where light control is not an option,” said Brian Savarese, product manager, Epson America. “We know people gather together for their entertainment, especially for their favorite sports. The Epson Ultra Bright Pro Cinema projectors deliver brilliant, immersive bigger screen sports with an image size that TVs simply can’t touch.”

Dealers and their customers alike will benefit from the latest Epson Pro Cinema projectors’ brightness, connectivity, and installation flexibility, according to the company. Designed with custom installers in mind, the Pro Cinema G6970WU, G6570WU, and 4855WU are equipped with a suite of features such as vertical and horizontal lens shift, centered lens design, and arc correction. In addition, Faroudja DCDi Cinema technology maintains image quality without introducing artifacts. These models can project content from two HD connections, side by side, with the Split Screen3 function, and include a ceiling mount and extra lamp.

The Pro Cinema G6970WU and G6570WU offer a total of six lenses each – standard, rear, two middle, and one long throw – enabling installers to choose the lens best suited for the space. A quick-release lever allows quick lens exchange. HDBaseT connectivity, ideal for large home installations, integrates full HD video, audio, network, and control commands into a single Cat-5/6 cable that may be extended up to 328 feet. 

The Pro Cinema G6970WU and G6570WU are compatible with Crestron, AMX, Extron XTP, and Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol. The Pro Cinema G6970WU adds HD-SDI (Serial Digital Interface) connectivity to extend the signal 300 feet supporting high frame rates and color depth.
