Epson has announced that its latest flagship home theater projector, the EH-TW9400, is coming to Singapore.

First announced at IFA in September last year, the 3LCD-based EH-TW9400 is a “4K PRO-UHD” projector that uses e-shift technology. What this means is that the sensor isn’t native 4K, but the 4K simulation is achieved by using dedicated hardware processing to shift each pixel diagonally to double the full HD resolution.

The EH-TW9400 touts a white and color light output of 2,600 lumens and a 1,200,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. It also comes with powered lens shift (+/–96.3% vertical, +/–47.1% horizontal), motorized focus, and 2.1x optical zoom. HDR10 and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) are supported too, as well as 18Gbps data rate for 4K at 60fps. The EH-TW9400 does 3D too, but only at 1080p.

Connectivity-wise, the EH-TW9400 is equipped with two HDMI ports (one with HDCP 2.2, another with HDCP 1.4), RJ45, and RS232c.

In addition to the EH-TW9400, Epson has also announced availability details of the EH-TW7400. The TW7400 shares many features of the EH-TW9400, but with a few key differences: it has a lower brightness and contrast ratio (2,400 lumens, 200,000:1), and it doesn't support HLG and the 18Gbps bandwidth.

Both the EH-TW9400 (S$4,499) and EH-TW7400 (S$3,199) home projectors will be available exclusively to KEC and Arts of Entertainment in Singapore. The EH-TW9400 will arrive first in early February, with the EH-TW7400 expected from end March.
