Fans of high-definition projection rejoice; Epson have announced that they have developed the world’s first 4K-compatible HTPS (high-temperature polysillicon) TFT liquid crystal panel for 3LCD projectors.
Why should you care? Just a few months ago Epson we’re flaunting a HTPS panel with a 1,920 x 1,200 WUXGA resolution. This panel boasts resolutions as crazily high as 4,096 x 2,160.Until now 4Kx2K projectors were huge and incredibly expensive, making it usually reserved just for use in cinemas. But at just 1.64 inches, we may be seeing 4K 3LCD projectors sporting this panel in our living rooms in the not too distant future.
According to Akihabara News, Epson will be exhibiting a projector with the kit built in before the end of the year. Keep checking back for more details.
