Epson has updated their projector lines from the Home Cinema 5010UB and Pro Cinema 6010UB to the new Home Cinema 5020UB and Pro Cinema 6020UB. Basically, the company has made some updates in the contrast ratio and the new projectors have jumped up from 200,000:1 to over 320,000:1. On top of that Epson has spec'ed the new projectors so that they have 2400 lumens of White Brightness and Color Brightness - which is a new SID spec that debuted earlier this year. Epson has also tweaked the pixel brightness so that 3D images are brighter and better compensate for the losses due to the active shutter glasses. And those glasses? They still include two pairs, but they went from IR technology to RF technology and are now rechargeable. In fact, they'll run for 40 hours and you can get 3 hours of run-time from a quick 3 minute charge.
The Home Cinema 5020UB and the Pro Cinema 6020UB are essentially the same projector except that the latter includes some upgrades like a Chief ceiling mount, a cable "butt" cover, and some enhancements to the warranty support. The price points remain the same with the 6020UB selling for just under $4000.
We demoed the new 6020UB, which was calibrated by the esteemed Kevin Miller, and it just looks awesome. So If you're in the market for a powerful and beautiful projector then check these out.
