Epson is adding another combo projector to its line — Epson MovieMate 55.

MovieMate 55 combines a 3-chip 3LCD projector, CD/DVD player and built-in stereo speakers into one portable unit that weighs 8.3 pounds.

The projector displays a 60-inch image from six feet away or a 120-inch image from 12 feet, both with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

It features Dolby Digital Audio, and Epson says it can be used with Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and the iPod.

MovieMate 55 also has USB flash drives to display content from a PC or Mac.

Other features include:

  • An E-TORL lamp with 1,200 lumens of brightness
  • Built-in progressive scan standard definition DVD/CD player
  • Two built-in 8 watt 5.1 Dolby Digital DTS speakers

“Epson MovieMate projectors can transform any space into a home theater environment,” says Rajeev Mishra, director of projector marketing and development for Epson.

Epson MovieMate 55 will be available in October for $699.
