Epson’s Home Cinema 4010 Offers 4K Performance for Less Than $2K
(Epson)(September 18, 2018) Epson has launched its second new projector model this month, following up its CEDIA Home Cinema 4050 reveal with the all-new Home Cinema 4010 4K PRO-UHD.
Much like the 4050, the Home Cinema 4010 is built to deliver a 4K experience using an enhanced version of Epson’s pixel-shifting technology and a 12-bit digital processing chip. While not true-4K, the reliance on pixel-shifting allows the 4010 to remain incredibly affordable while maintaining the ability to display a 4K image utilizing three individual 1920 x 1080 LCD imagers. In addition, the projector can display 10-bit color within the expanded DCI-P3 color palate.
“Epson’s new Home Cinema 4010 4K PRO-UHD projector represents a new type of 4K experience for home theater projection,” explains Rodrigo Catalan, senior project manager, Projectors, Epson America. “Utilizing proprietary resolution-enhancement technology, along with advanced forms of HDR and image processing, the Home Cinema 4010 produces incredible brightness, color accuracy, and image detail for the ultimate 4K experience.”
Tapping the ability to output a reported 2,400 lumens with a 200,000:1 contrast ratio, the 4010 carries compatibility with HDR10 for High Dynamic Range performance. Add to that a state-of-the art 15-element glass projection lens paired with powered focus and 2.1x zoom, and the projector looks to be capable of delivering a smooth and uniform cinematic image on both 16:9 and 2.35:1 screens.
The Home Cinema 4010 is priced at $1,999 and can be purchased through select retailers and Epson’s online store.
