Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB Projector Overview

Posted on September 29, 2016 By Phil Jones

This is a relatively short video of the Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB projector, based on our full, in-depth online review.  The 6040UB is one of the most impressive new projectors of 2016. A longer, more in-depth video is available for the virtually identical Home Cinema 5040UB as well.  That gets further into technical aspects including handing of 4K content, and pixel shifting.

Check out the full online review here.

Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB

When the Epson Pro Cinema 6040UB (and Home Cinema 5040UB) were the object of a full-length review, they received our Hot Product Award and the Best Value Award ($2000-$4000) in our annual Home Theater Projector Report.

Pro Cinema 6040UB and Home Cinema 5040UB Highlights

  • 2500 lumens at full power enough to deal with some ambient light
  • Color filter for improved color in “best modes”
  • Almost 2000 lumens calibrated in Bright Cinema mode (the best “brightest” mode)
  • Handles 4K content, including support for HDR, REC2020, P3, DCI standards
  • Uses pixel shifting to enhance both 4K and 2K – 1080i and 1080p content
  • 3D
  • “Ultra Black” – Excellent black level performance on dark scenes
  • Lens Memory – Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift
  • Extensive amounts of lens shift, vertical and horizontal for placement flexibility
  • Excellent Warranty and Support (HC5040UB – has 2 years with 2 year replacement program, while PC6040UB gets an extra year of each)
  • MHL on one of the HDMI for working with streaming sticks, mobile devices
  • More money than predecessor, but performance and feature improvements easily worth the difference

Videos that are part of the Projector Reviews TV channel are created by Projector Reviews Inc. If we review a projector and it wins one of our awards, it becomes eligible for a video summary. Of course, we can only do a limited number of these videos. In some cases, we will choose a projector review to do a video of. In other cases, a request may come from the manufacturer. As we do with the rest of the content on our website, we offer manufacturers Permissions.

With these paid Permissions, manufacturers can post these videos on their own websites, pass them out to their dealers, and use them for other promotional purposes including trade shows and point-of-sale displays in retail stores. These videos are very short versions of the full review. In just a few minutes worth of video we can't begin to capture all the information in the review, so we call this a video summary.

If this video is positive and enthusiastic about the projector, is simply because the review itself was positive and enthusiastic. We try to make the videos more fun, a bit less dry, with far less technical detail. Enjoy, but also visit the full review for more depth, even the settings that work best. Thanks! -art
