Epson Debuts New Home Theater Projectors with iPhone and iPad Dock

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 14, 2011

If you have an iPhone or other iOS device, you have probably wanted on more than on occasion to shoot some of the content you have on that smartphone onto a much larger screen. You can put the content onto the TV in your home with an AV cable or a speaker dock, but it you want a really big image, a projector is what you need.


Epson unveiled two low-end new projectors today – the MegaPlex MG-850HD and the MG-50 each offer an integrated iPhone and iPad dock on the back. Both of the new projectors share very similar features. The only real difference is that the MG-850HD has 720p resolution and the MG-50 only offers 540p. Both of the projectors are bright, with the 850HD offering 2,800 lumens of brightness and the MG-50 with 2,200 lumens, projecting a 100-inch image without a problem. Both of the new projectors use 3-chip LCD technology, dual 10W speaker and have HDMI and VGA ports in addition to handling video direct from docked iOS devices.

The MG-850HD will sell for $799 (USD) and the MG-50 will sell for $699 starting later this month.
