Epson America – the number one selling projector brand worldwide1
Epson and its partners will showcase a high-performance projector, screen and audio system (available for under $7,000) at CE Week Line Shows & Exhibits in New York City from June 26-27. Underscoring the power of a big-screen projector experience at home, the demo will feature Epson's award-winning Epson® PowerLite® Pro Cinema 6020UB and a 115" Screen Innovations Black Diamond Zero Edge™ Screen.
As screen technology continues to advance and front projection technology reaches new levels of quality and performance, consumers are now able to experience bright, beautiful images in a traditional living room setting at sizes formerly unimaginable (up to 25 times larger than a 60-inch TV screen). The technology demonstration will highlight how projection technology can replace the flat panel TV with a truly extraordinary viewing experience. Highlights include:
