Key Features
  • Enjoy the Home Theatre Experience in a way you never thought possible
    With unrivalled Silicon Optix HQV Reon-VX video processing and a best-in-class 200,000:1 contrast ration, Epson's flagship EH-TW5500 projector offers the most discerning home theatre enthusiast a stunning visual experience. Whether you're watching movies or sports, this 1080p projector ensures amazing image quality with the latest generation Epson D7 chip, UltraBlackTM technology and a bright 1,600 lumens of light output.

    With innovative colour adjustment features and a state-of-the-art Fujinon lens, a brand trusted by renowned Hollywood filmmakers, the EH-TW5500 delivers superb video performance. And, with Epson's 3LCD, 3-chip optical engine, it offers such incredible quality, you're sure to achieve a true cinematic experience. Setup is easy with the colour isolation feature and ISF calibration, which allows you to adjust colours as the filmmaker intended. The EH-TW5500 brings big-screen entertainment home in a whole new way.

  • Silicon Optix HQV Reon-VX processor
    The Silicon Optix HQV processor is the reference standard in deinterlacing and scaling. With standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) interlaced content (DVDs, TV shows, 1080i HDTV broadcasts), the HQV Reon-VX processor reduces jagged edges on low angle solid lines and flat edges. This superior video processor minimizes MPEG compression-related artifacts, such as mosquito noise and restores the image to a more natural picture.

  • 3LCD technology - for amazing quality and colour
    3LCD technology delivers amazing colour and detail. Whether it's a blockbuster movie or live sporting event, 3LCD technology takes video performance to the next level. Delivering legendary image quality, this innovative technology always ensures a thrilling cinematic experience.

  • Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) certification
    Certified by the ISF, the EH-TW5500 has been built to the strictest video standards. Calibration tools include multiple picture memories, and lockout to prevent accidental, post-calibration user misadjustments. ISF Cinema Day and Cinema Night modes are available.

  • OptiCinemaTM lens system
    The OptiCinema lens system is a precision, high quality optical grade system. Co-developed with Fujinon, a top supplier of precision camera optics to the world's leading HD camera makers, the system offers:

    * Maximum picture uniformity.
    * Clarity across the entire screen.
    * Freedom from colour fringing.
    * Precision focus with 2.1x zoom.
    * Maximum installation flexibility with 96% vertical / 47% horizontal lens shift.

  • UltraBlack technology and Vertical Alignment
    Achieve incredibly deep blacks with an astounding 200,000:1 contrast ratio, UltraBlack technology and Epson's exclusive Vertical Alignment (VA) LCD technology. With VA LCD technology, opaque (black) is the natural state. Signal voltage is applied to increase translucence (transmittance) as needed. This is a fundamental design and performance advantage - a complete rethinking of LCD chip design.

  • FineFrame interpolation processing technology
    Film is encoded on Blu-ray at 24 frames per second. FineFrame deconstructs and reconstructs these sources for a 1080p frame rate output of up to 120Hz, virtually eliminating flicker and frame-to-frame judder. The 4:4 pulldown function also makes corrections for improperly encoded sources, and features a reverse 2:3 pulldown detection and correction function.

  • Energy-efficient E-TORL lamp
    The innovative E-TORL lamp, exclusively from Epson, is a reliable performer that delivers more lumens per watt and lasts up to 4,000 hours. Switch the projector to High Brightness Mode and the E-TORL lamp still produces up to 4,000 hours of light performance. The special E-TORL design minimizes both light diffraction and light leakage, providing the ultimate in lamp longevity.

  • 3 year projector and lamp warranty
    The EH-TW5500 comes with a full 3 year warranty on both the lamp as well as the projector itself. Absolute peace of mind protection for your state-of-the-art projector.

  • Attractive cable cover
    Bundled with the EH-TW5500 is an attractive colour coded cable cover, continuing the clean lines of the projector and hiding away untidy cabling.
