Using an Epson Pro Cinema G6550WU and a Screen Innovations SLATE Screen

This video demonstrates how the Epson Pro Cinema G6550WU and Screen Innovations SLATE 1.2 screen combination handles the substantial amount of ambient light in the space, including natural light, indoor lighting, and reflections off the light floor tile and other unconventional furnishings in a theater space. The two other videos in the series walk through our review of the Epson G6550WU as well as the installation of both the projector and the screen.

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
