Making Movie Night a Bigger Deal: Epson's Latest MovieMate

Techstination feature for Thursday, November 11, 2010

Making home movie night a bigger deal. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Movie nights at home are fun for the family and are a whole lot less expensive than a trip to the movie theatre. Epson's line of MovieMate projectors has focused on making the experience more like the theatre. Epson senior marketing manager Jason Palmer...

"It's an all in one projector, DVD player, 20 watt speakers, port for a microphone so you can do karaoke or speak to a presentation. It has HDMI inputs and component inputs so you can plug in a Wii game system or an Xbox. And you can bring it anywhere. It's got a handle. It's lightweight. You can bring it into your backyard, put it in your basement. Whatever you'd like."

The latest lineup includes the MovieMate 85 HD with 720p resolution. Use a light colored wall, a sheet or a screen designed for a projector...and you've got a hundred inch giant picture. The price, under 900 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
