Epson has has introduced its new Home Cinema (HC) 4000 4K-enhanced HDR projectorThe "enhanced" in Epson parlance refers to pixel-shifting technology that delivers 4K resolutions from 1080p-capable chipsets, allowing Epson to keep its high-performance projectors relatively affordable.

Compatible with Ultra HD 4K HDR10 content, the HC 4000 projector is rated to produce up to 2,200 color and white lumens of brightness, along with contrast ratios as dynamic as 140,000:1. 

"Epson's latest 4Ke solution provides a comprehensive viewing experience that incorporates outstanding superior brightness, extreme contrast, broad color gamut, high-color fidelity and amazing resolution to deliver image quality that rivals more expensive 4K solutions currently available in the market today," says Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, projectors, Epson America. "From the light source, to the signal processor, to the 3LCD module, to the lens—Epson projectors deliver high-quality images at a range of price points to bring big-screen performance to a range of consumers."

Thanks for the heads up, Kurtofga—We have revised the piece to include Epson’s definition of 4Ke. Just a hasty oversight.

C’mon CE Pro, your reputation as a reliable industry site for information is at stake. This is not a 4K projector. It is a 1080p projector with scaling.
