With 1800 lumens brightness and a 36,000:1 maximum contrast ratio, the Pro Cinema 9100 is the less expensive of the two. Available in October at $2,599, Epson’s 9100 features improvements in contrast over older models, thanks to a Dynamic Iris system allowing frame by frame light control.
The higher end Epson Pro Cinema 9500 UB will be shipping in November at a price expected to be just below $4000 – though no official price has yet been announced. The 9500 UB features a 200,000:1 contrast ratio, with a 1600 lumen output. Adding to the picture quality of the 9500 UB is a built in Silicon Optix HQV Reon-VX video processor and PW390 scaler.
Marge Ang, senior product manager at Epson says these projectors are perfect for customer installations. “These latest Pro Cinema projectors have been packed with a range of value-add features and technology refinements” she stated. “[These features] allow custom installers to build a customized high-performance, home entertainment system for their discerning customers”
