3 LCD Projectors that require no cool down time

27 04 2007

Epson is playing the 3LCD card yet again in the EMP-X5 and XMP-822 projectors, but rather than hashing out specs we’re all too familiar with, the firm stepped it up by including a “one touch off” feature that eliminates the need for a time consuming cool down process before wrapping things up. Both units maintain a small stature and weigh in at around six-pounds, sport VGA resolutions, and share 400:1 contrast ratios. The EMP-X5 musters 2,200 ANSI lumens, touts a “sliding lens cap,” and automatic keystone distortion adjusting, while the EMP-822 (pictured after the break) jumps to 2,600 ANSI lumens, includes a few more inputs, rocks a built-in speaker, and offers up a “direct shutdown” feature to make grab ‘n go presentations a breeze. These little fellows aren’t exactly aimed at the budget-minded set, mind you, as the time-saving shutdown features will run you INR 1,02,800.00 ($1,670) on the EMP-822, while the lesser-spec’d sibling is still waiting for a price to call its own.
