Epson has unveiled its latest line of consumer projectors, including three fully-specified home theatre models and a dedicated gaming projector. The new 3D home cinema projectors offer almost twice the contrast ratio of last year's offerings, along with MHL connectivity for smartphone and tablet users. The EH-TW9200 (pictured above), and its wireless HDMI sibling EH-TW9200W, boast a contrast ratio of 600,000:1, while the cheaper EH-TW7200 is rated at 120,000:1. RF shuttering 3D glasses for all three models are sold separately. The projectors will be available from October, prices TBA.

Of particular interest in the new range is a dedicated 3D video gaming projector, the EH-TW5200. Featuring a 'fast mode' for low lag time, along with high 15,000:1 contrast ratio and MHL connectivity, it becomes an interesting option for installers specifying a media games space. With a light output rated at 2,000lm, Epson says it's bright enough to enable big-screen gaming in ambient light.

UK's business manager Graeme Davidson says the model was conceived as "the ideal upgrade from traditional flat screen TVs. Not only does it offer Full HD 2D and 3D projection and a whole host of other features to heighten gamers' experiences, the projector is also completely adaptable to a variety of environments." Available from September, it'll retail for £749 (3D glasses not included).

Finally, providing a big-screen jumping on point at just £550 this September, is the new 720p EH-TW490. With 3,000 lumens light output, it's said to be the only model in its class to feature both vertical and horizontal correction of up to 30 degrees.
