Epson Ensemble

This wasn't a show for major video projector launches or even major projector demonstrations. That's CEDIA. But JVC, Optoma, Panasonic, Samsung, and a few others took a crack at it.

By far the most affordable complete package was the Epson Ensemble. It comes complete with screen, projector, AV receiver with a built-in DVD player, and speakers. The left, center, and right speakers are hidden in the screen case, shown here with the screen retracted, and the subwoofer fits in a stand that also holds the receiver (not shown). The speakers were designed by Atlantic Technology.The package sells for $7000 with a 1080p projector, $5000 with a 720p unit. First shown in prototype at last year's CES, the system is undergoing final tweaking and will be available shortly.
