Epson EMP-TWD1 - Projector/DVD Combo

This site has moved to AVReport.com

EpsonEMP-TWD1 showed off LCD Projector / DVD player combo at IFA2005 in Berlin. The projector also acts as a surround system powered by JVC. The device looks more like a laser printer than a projector and weighs 7kg (about 14 pounds). Epson EMP-TWD1 is capable of playing back not only DVD but also still images on CD. And since this device is all-in-one Epson made it into a HiFi system as well. Just stick the CD in and play.
Here is the list of highlights from LetsGoDigital.

• Elegant and Compact design
• No cable clutter thanks to easy installation
• Intuitive operation
• 1.20m image width at a distance of just 1.50m

There is not much technical information at the moment but it will come out very soon since the projector is planned to hit the stores in September with suggested price to be 1299 EUR ($1620). If you are interested in Projector/DVD combos, Optoma MovieTime DV10 is the-same -class product (one difference is Optoma uses DLP panels instead of LCD) and has been out for more than a month.
