Shipping this November, just in time for the holiday season, is a new pair of flagship projectors from Epson.  Known as the EH-TW5500 and EH-TW4400 in European markets and the Pro Cinema 9500UB / Home Cinema 8500UB in the states, Epson’s new projectors feature a Full HD 1080p picture. 

The 9500UB separates out from there though, offering 12 bit video processing (over the 8500UB’s 10 bit processing), and a contrast ratio of 200,000:1, nearly double that of the lower model.  According to Epson’s Alexandre Di Caro, these models are intended specifically for home theater enthusiasts “looking for the ultimate” HD projector.  ”Look no further than our new 9500UB and 8500UB models,” he says.  “With fantastic contrast ratios, D7 3LCD panel technology and the most advanced image enhancing features around today, these new Full HD machines reflect our continuous quest for outstanding innovation in the home cinema market.”

Retail pricing will be "sub" $3000 for the 8500UB and "sub" $4000 for the 9500UB when they launch this November.
