Epson has added two new home theater projectors to its line of projectors. The two new products are the PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 and the 8500 UB. Both projectors are 3LCD units with 1080p resolution. The 8100 has a dynamic contrast ratio of 36000:1 and the 8500 UB has a dynamic contrast ratio of 200000:1.

The 8100 sells for $1599 and the 8500 UB will sell for under $3000. Epson promises that both projectors offer good color reproduction with crisp and natural images. Other features of the 8100 include 1800 lumens of brightness and light can be controlled on a frame-by-frame basis at 60 times per second.

The 8500UB has 1600 lumens of brightness and uses Epson C2fine and UltraBlack technology for superb black levels and vivid images. The projector also features Epson Super-resolution tech for reduction of blurring and more. The 8100 will ship in late-October with the 8500 UB shipping in November.
