The Home Cinema 4010 4K PRO-UHD is the latest Ultra HD and HDR-capable value projector from Epson. With the latest iteration of PRO-UHD pixel-shifting technology and full coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut, it turns your Ultra HD Blu-rays and other high-res sources into stunning images with high contrast and saturated color.
Today’s displays are loaded with features, some of which affect image quality, and most of which are aimed at convenience and ease-of-use. But, the only meaningful way to separate the good from the bad is by looking at color accuracy. Now that is a term that is often written but rarely explained. So, join me now as we go on a journey through color science, video standards, and how all this impacts your enjoyment of the movie.

The hot trend in front projection these days is firmly in the genre of compact value-priced DLP models. Their large, bright and sharp images provide a great solution for less than the price of many flat panels. Today we're checking out Optoma's latest, the HD37.
It wasn't long ago that a projector with lens shift would cost you at least $2,500. Epson's new Home Cinema 3500 3LCD Projector breaks that barrier with an MSRP of $1,600. In addition you get a full set of calibration controls, 3D and plenty of light output.
When I finally took the plunge into a projection setup in my home theater, the hardest decision I had to make was what aspect ratio to get for my screen. Everything that came after that, from the screen material to the projector, was dependent on that decision.
Each year at the CEDIA Expo, I look forward to seeing the latest projectors from all the major manufacturers. While some do not update their products annually, Epson always has something new to offer. This past September, I got an in-depth...
At a CEDIA that was big on 4K and sound bars, the introduction of the VPL-HW50ES went under the radar a bit. Slotting into their lineup above the HW30 and below the HW95, the HW50 comes with a few features from each of those, but also has its own unique features to set...
Just two years ago, 3D was the all the rage at the CEDIA Expo. Now 3D is in almost every display you buy and is not the hot, new thing. It has been supplanted by 4K, promising to offer so many pixels that we will never see them again, and out-HD our current High Definition. JVC took a half step onto the 4K platform with their e-Shift projectors, which use a slight pixel shift to potentially produce an effective resolution of 4K, though with only 1920 x 1080 panels and no 4K input capability. The JVC X70 is one such projector, and is reviewed here.
Many people are eager to experience 3D in their home, but often disappointed when they get their projector setup. The wonderful demos we see at trade shows or in stores are commonly using custom screens that add a lot of light to 3D, but most of us don't have these. The end result is often a dark, dull picture that doesn't resemble what they were hoping to see. The BenQ W7000, reviewed here, is a single-chip DLP 3D projector that has plenty of light, even in 3D, and also scored well in our Benchmark tests.
