Epson Releases 4K PRO-UHD Compatible Home Projectors

Managing Director of Epson Malaysia Daisuke Hori addressing the crowd

Epson is releasing their new line of 4K Home Cinema Projectors. The two models include the EH-TW7400 and the EH-TW9400. The projectors have 4K PRO-UHD and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support  for Home Cinema use. Comparatively Epson’s Cinema Projectors use 3LCD technology which allows for a higher brightness and colour output. The EH-TW9400 actually has a 1,200,000:1 high dynamic contrast ratio. The HDR support allows for higher range of colour and detail regardless of if in a bright or dark lit room.

The EH-TW7400 is the lower end version of the two and doesn’t have Hybrid Log Gamma and 4K/60p HDR. The 7400 version also has 200,000:1 high contrast ratio. Something that was quite interesting that I didn’t know about modern projectors was they were WiFi and Chromecast compatible. This does seem like it’ll be convenient to stream directly from the projector without having to connect a laptop or other media device.

Spec list for the two projectors and differences

I got to see the projectors in person and the details really popped on screen. With the ability to adjust exactly how ratio and resolutions with the remote really made a difference. With the HDR on you could see almost too much detail. Epson advised to maybe keep it in a more neutral setting, depending on your preference.

The two new 4K projectors

The EH-TW7400 is priced at RM 9800 and the EH-TW9400 will be at a whopping RM 14,919 and will be available in the market mid-April at authorized retailers.
