One area where 3D has been gaining a bit of traction is in Gaming and Epson have just introduced a new projector targeted at that market. We have already rated Epson’s 3D quality very highly and it appears this unit uses similar technology to its more expensive siblings. One thing to note is that it is not Full-HD but only 720P.

clip_image002[1]31 Epson announces the EH-TW550 – an affordable, portable, 720p, HD-Ready 3D projector. Ideal for gamers, the EH-TW500 offers:

  • Dedicated gaming colour mode
  • 3LCD technology with equally bright White and Colour Light output for vivid, lifelike images
  • Split-screen display function
  • Radio Frequency (RF) 3D technology, providing a strong signal for 3D glasses
  • Three-year lamp warranty

With its slim design, the EH-TW550 is light enough to move between rooms or carry to a friend’s house for a gaming tournament. Set-up is quick and easy thanks to manual horizontal and automatic vertical keystone correction.

Epson’s 3LCD technology, an equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 3,000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 5,000:1 ensure blacks are deep, colours are vivid and every detail is accurately reproduced. Colour can be optimised for gaming by selecting a special ‘game’ mode, with additional colour modes available for viewing film and other content. 

The projector’s split-screen display function allows two different sources to be viewed at the same time – great for checking sports scores in the middle of a game, or flicking through TV channels.

Kally Kanda, product manager, Epson UK, says: “This HD-Ready 2D and 3D portable projector is ideal for gamers who want the perfect blend of quality and affordability. What’s more, it comes with a three-year lamp warranty for extra peace of mind.”

The EH-TW550 is compatible with USB-rechargeable, Radio Frequency, active shutter 3D glasses, sold separately, which can be used up to 10 metres from the projector.

Available from December, the EH-TW550 is priced at £599.
