Here, in no particular order, are some of our favorite holiday movies.

  • Love Actually
  • Elf

Shootout: See the Epson MovieMate 85HD, Epson HC 8350 and Epson HC 8700 UB in action

There are days when you really can’t call what we do here at Projector People “work.” Take last Friday for instance.

We spent all of Friday locked up in a conference room with the Epson MovieMate 85HD, Epson Home Cinema 8350 and the Epson Home Cinema 8700 UB. We popped the movie Avatar into a Sharp Blu-ray and used an HDMI splitter to feed the image to each projector. The display was shown on a gray wall.

To help customers make the best purchase decision, we asked Rodney Laney, our VP of Display Technology, to talk about each projector’s specs, strengths and weaknesses. Check out the video below.

All projectors were shot “out of the box”. We did not tweak the calibration settings.

Projectors in order from L to R: Epson MovieMate 85HD, Epson Home Cinema 8350, Epson Home Cinema 8700 UB.

Video time line:

  • 0:00 – 0:29 – Introduction
  • 0:30 – 2:42 – Epson MovieMate 85HD
  • 2:44 – 3:41 – Epson Home Cinema 8350
  • 3:44 – 4:44 – Epson Home Cinema 8700 UB
  • 4:45 – 5:55 – Compare the three projectors’ contrast ratio with the lights off.
  • 4:46 – Sigourney Weaver helps us turn off the lights.
  • 5:56- END- How the projectors’ contrast ratio fairs in the dark vs. with the lights on.

PS – All of these projectors will be featured in our upcoming Parade of Savings sale, which runs Nov. 24 through Nov. 29.

True film buffs want a projector that delivers the most cinema-like viewing experience. With advanced technology and an incredible contrast ratio of 200,000:1, the 1600-lumen Epson HC 8700 UB brings the movie theater to the living room. The projector’s 1080p D7 chip, C2FineTM technology and 3LCD display provides deep, rich blacks and exceptionally sharp details. The film buff in your life will appreciate the Epson’s anamorphic (stretch) mode, which displays 2.40:1 cinemascope content in its original format and eliminates the annoying black bars around widescreen movies.

For the gamer in the family

Gamer extraordinaires have the hottest games, the newest consoles and the latest cheats. But what’s the point of all that if they’re playing on a dinky 32″ TV? For total immersion, gamers need a bright larger-than-life display, like the crystal clear 120″ image provided by the 2000-lumen Hitachi CP-DW10N. The 8-lb short-throw CP-DW10N features built-in 10W speakers and a full host of inputs, making it the perfect portable all-in-one gaming projector.

For the messy man…or woman

Those unsightly black cables running from the cable box to the projector in the next room are a serious design no-no. Clean it up with OwLink’s HD Fiber Optic Connectivity System. The kit includes a crystal clear “fishing line” multimode fiber optical cable that can transmit uncompressed digital video and audio up to 1,000 feet. Say goodbye to that cable nest!

The PK301’s MicroSD card slot allows for up to 16GB of memory, plenty of room for movies, photos and home videos.
