LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 30, 2013 – A new tie, a fancy razor, or even quirky gadgets are respectable Father’s Day gift ideas. But this year, Epson thinks Father’s Day should be a year-long celebration of epic proportions that lets Dad bring family and friends together for a larger-than-life experience with the affordable Epson® PowerLite® Home Cinema 500 3LCD projector. Whether hosting a neighborhood movie night or gearing up for a big-screen gaming event for kids of all ages, the versatile 3LCD Home Cinema 500 makes it easy to enjoy movies, videogames and sporting events on screens up to 300-inches wide (25 times larger than a 60-inch TV screen).
“As the saying goes, bigger is better, and as long as it isn’t referring to Dad’s ever-growing waistline, we completely agree,” said Jason Palmer, marketing manager, Epson America. “Even if your dad isn’t tech-savvy, the easy-to-use and setup Home Cinema 500 allows him to share the ultimate big-screen entertainment experience with family and friends without hurting the family budget.”
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness, and Epson 3LCD projectors have up to 3x Brighter Colors than leading 1-chip DLP projectors1. Allowing Dad to harness 2,600 lumens of color brightness (color light output) and 2,600 lumens of white brightness2, the Home Cinema 500 uses 3LCD, 3-chip technology for brilliant images with true-to-life color. The compact projector also features built-in set-up tools, a convenient HDMI input, and a 2W speaker with the ability to connect additional external speakers to make setup easier-than-ever for indoor and outdoor movie nights the entire neighborhood can enjoy. Simply plug in a Blu-ray® player, gaming console or streaming media player to play super-sized videogames or watch Dad’s favorite flicks.
