Epson TW2000- 50,000:1 Contrast Ratio


Recommended Posts



Good find.

 

Wow.. 2 HDMI inputs and 3 Component ones.  Hope I did not interpret it wrongly.  Too bad the noise level is still a tad high at 24db.  Unlikely for us to see it until mid next year if the long delay in the TW1000 getting here is any indication of how insignificant the Singapore market is.

Some noteworthy observation:

 

1. Native panel contrast is 4500:1. Much better than gen 1 panel.

2.Epson is using some sort of polarising filter (termed "deep back tech") with its adaptive iris to get 50K contrast.

3. The set can accept 24p with 2:2 pull down to get 48hz and 96hz.

4. TW2000 will be showcased at IFA Berlin from Aug 30 to Sept 5 2007....

 

You might see worldwide launch during year end holiday season...

Some comments about the pj from Cedia:

This is a bit worrying...

 

The new projector adds an additional HDMI 1.3 input for a total of two, also uses an auto iris, horizontal and vertical lens shift, extensive color and grayscale adjustments, and is spec'd for 1600 ANSI lumens of brightness. The projector still accepts 1080p/24 and displays it at 1080p/60, but I was told that a multiple of 24p might be avaialble by the time the projector ships in December at a price under $5K.

Hmm strange, cine4home mentioned that 24p was shown natively on their demo set at Epson Japan. This excerpt is translated from German:

 

"A few Boni keeps however still ready the TW2000: On the connection side it offers now a second HDMI entrance (likewise HDMI 1,3), so that also without switching box now several digital sources can be attached. Besides the user can select signal now with fed 1080/24p whether he the film ruckelfrei with 2:2 Pulldown in 48Hz and/or 96Hz on the canvas wants to enjoy, or after conventional 3:2 Pulldown in 60Hz. "

 

"Both by DVD and Blu ray, the latter in the native 1080/24p format was passed on. And also in this discipline the TW2000 did not afford weaknesses: It illustrated the highly soluble pictorial material sharply and highly detailed and showed no Ruckeln, a complete 24p-Kompatibilitaet is ensured thereby. Altogether we can congratulate to engineers after this first presentation to their product, to which TW2000 will surely belong this year to one to the best its class... Follow more information in our test...."
