Optoma's EP series of DLP projectors

Optoma just launched their EP series of projectors set to go on sale in Japan next month. In contrast to their budget 720p/1080p capable HD series, all the EP models 'cept the 800x600-limited EP716P (¥207,900 / $1,745) are capable of a mere 1024x768 pixel resolution. The EP729 (¥302,400 / $2,538) DLP pictured above delivers a 2200:1 contrast ratio, 1.15 optical zoom lens and throws 33~36dB of noise and 1,600 lumens off its 156W lamp. Ideal for the busy sales goon on the go since it weighs just 0.99-kgs / 2.2-pounds and can project an image onto a surface as close as 1.5-meters. The EP7150 (¥281,400 / $2,362) meanwhile, packs TI's DarkChip2 at the guts with a 1.1x zoom, 2,000 lumen capable 156W lamp, 2500:1 contrast ratio, and cranks 33~36dB during operation. Bringing up the tail is the entry-level EP719P (¥260,400 / $2,186) DLP with 200W lamp delivering 2000 lumens and 2500:1 contrast ratio. Sorry, no HDMI or DVI inputs anywhere in the mix so you'll have to settle for component, composite, S-Video, and analog RGB. See the others after the break, if you really care.

That's the EP716P / EP719P fatty for newbies up there.
