My third projector will be installed this evening :-)

  • from 2005 - 2008 Panasonic PT-AE900
  • from 2008 - 2015 Sanyo Z2000

It is a big upgrade from my Sanyo Z2000. I currently have a Dalite TENSIONED COSMOPOLITAN ELECTROL 16:9 HDTV 133''. This screen has always looked to sparkly on the whites during viewing. It is even worse with this new projector.

Why this model and not the Panasonic PT-AE8000 (first out in 2011 now for 1770 CHF)

Better than the Panasonic PT-AE8000 for me because

  • Latest technology: model first available in end of 2013,
  • 2 HDMI on the back only but wireless transmitting (+5 HDMI) = 7 HDMI in total,
  • 2D-to-3D conversion,
  • Frame Interpolation,
  • 2 x 3D glasses are included,
  • Wireless HDMI, 
  • Panasonic has a 2000 hour limit which ends warranty coverage. No hour limit on Epson.
  • But all in all more expensive (+1000 CHF).

3x Brighter Colours with Epson*

Brilliant image quality requires high colour brightness (colour light output), and Epson® 3LCD projectors have 3 x Brighter Colours than leading competitive projectors*. One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. A projector’s specification needs to show both high colour brightness and high white brightness. If colour brightness is lower than white brightness, images may be dark, dull and lose detail. If not provided, be sure to ask for a projector’s colour brightness specification.

 

 

 

Full HD 1080p entertainment in 2D and 3D

Full HD 1080p resolution ensures the ultimate home cinema, while high colour brightness delivers vibrant image quality – whether it’s a blockbuster movie, live sporting event or videogame. With the included RF 3D glasses, the EH-TW9200W puts you right in the middle of the action.

C2Fine™ technology delivers a higher contrast ratio for exquisite detail

C2Fine offers smooth, uniform images with exceptional contrast for better image quality. Based on this new phase-compensation technology, light leakage is eliminated, and, when combined with the auto iris, this technology allows for contrast ratios up to 600,000:1.

 

 

 

Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) calibration and colour management

The Epson TW9200W features ISF certification for top video performance. And, it includes specific ISF picture memory modes, such as ISF Day and ISF Night, along with six other pre-named ISF memory modes and two additional modes. To prevent mis-adjustments that may inadvertently happen after installation and calibration, critical adjustments can be locked. To assist with properly adjusting colour saturation and hue (tint) using SMPTE colour bar test patterns, the TW9200W makes it possible to turn off the Red and Green imaging pixels, leaving only Blue. This allows the user to make adjustments without needing a gel filter. A Red-only mode is also provided.

THX display certification

Ensure accurate and exceptional picture quality – exceptional performance standards for black levels, resolution, contrast, colour gamut and signal processing. The TW9200W also includes a Versatile Movie Mode setting; a playback setting that lets consumers experience studio colour, black levels and clean-signal processing with few calibration adjustments.

Super Resolution (now available in 2D and 3D)

Makes DVDs and standard definition content come alive via its mixed colour separation techniques and imaging simulation. It delivers crisp, clear images with super high-quality resolution. It also sharpens blurry images that have been enlarged by a general upscaling process.

Frame Interpolation

Film is encoded on Blu-ray at 24 frames per second. FineFrame deconstructs and reconstructs these sources for a 1080p frame rate output of up to 120Hz, virtually eliminating flicker and frame-to-frame judder. The 4:4 pulldown function also makes corrections for improperly encoded sources, and features a reverse 2:3 pulldown detection and correction function.

Bright 3D Drive technology for 3D cinematic adventures

Enjoy thrilling 3D adventures right in the comfort of your living room. Featuring Bright 3D Drive technology, the TW8200 puts you right in the middle of the action. Epson’s drive system minimizes the blackout time of 3D glasses and provides greater brightness when viewing 3D content.

The wireless transmitter connects to up to five HDMI devices simultaneously (including one MHL-enabled port), and has one HDMI out connection, and one optical port.


Pass-through Mode
Set up your A/V equipment once, connecting to both your projector and a second display device such as a TV.
