It doesn’t matter if it’s an examination of the entire projection category or a more focused look that examines the custom electronics market, Epson is one of the most popular video projector manufacturers in the world.

Adding to its home video products, Epson has announced its competitively priced Home Cinema 1040 (MSRP $799) and Home Cinema 1440 (MSRP $1,699) projectors. According to Jason Palmer, marketing manager, Epson America, the latest products provide dealers with a cost effective way to bring a true big-screen experience to their clients without the clients spending a lot of money.

“The new projectors offer today’s households a convenient, affordable and powerful big-screen experience,” he points out. “Beyond the flexibility, the Home Cinema 1440 is also one of the brightest home projectors available on the market—-this is a flat-panel killer. Why settle for a 65-inch or 70-inch TV when you can have something four times bigger with bright, lifelike, sharp details, a portable design and simple setup for a truly captivating experience even in large, well lit environments.”
