We got to interview Jason Palmer on the new Epson Pro Cinema G6900WU. This is actually a new product for Epson. Epson has never had this type of pro Cinema lineup of this type. The 6900UB has 6000 lumens of output and has features like a Faroudja DCDi Cinema chip. It uses HDBaseT (HDBT) technology so you can plug in Cat 6 and run it up to 328 feet. It has lens shift. and a lot of other features of the Pro Cinema lineup like frame interpolation—but in an incredibly bright projector suitable for larger projection screens or screens in bright rooms.

A lot of people are wanting to put 120-inch or 140-inch screens into rooms with ambient light. Including the mount, an extra lamp, 4th year overnight replacement warranty, plus a cable cover, the G6900WU comes in at $7499.
