“The new Epson Home Cinema 5050UB and 5050UBe projectors are worthy successors to our highly-acclaimed Home Cinema 5040UB and 5040UBe,” said Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, Projectors, Epson America. “By retaining the outstanding black performance from the previous generation and adding our latest 4K PRO-UHD2 resolution enhancement technology, we’ve raised the bar again with the new Home Cinema solutions to deliver top contenders for the best DIY home theater projectors available today.”
Both units are powered by Epson’s 4K PRO-UHD resolution enhancement technology and content is supported at 4K HDR at 60Hz. Dynamic contrast ratio is claimed to achieve 1,000,000:1, DCI-P3 color space is supported, and both projectors include Epson’s 15-element glass projection lens. As is typical for Epson home theater projectors, a wide lens shift of up to ±96 percent on the vertical axis and up to ±47 percent on the horizontal axis is supported. The new projectors also feature low Delta E and include a CalMAN pattern generator calibration tool.
Both the new Home Cinema line projectors are now available through certain e-tailers and the Epson online store, and come with the company’s comprehensive service and support package, including toll-free access to Epson’s PrivateLine priority support, 90-day limited lamp warranty, and free two-business-day exchange with Extra CareSM Home Service. The Home Cinema 5050UBe and 5050UB also include a two-year limited warranty. For more information and detailed specs, visit www.epson.com/home-entertainment-projectors.
