LONG BEACH, Calif. – Oct. 8, 2008 – Epson America today announced that Projector Reviews (ProjectorReviews.com), a leading online AV resource, awarded its first “Outstanding Product Award” to the Epson Ensemble HD Home Cinema System. The Outstanding Product Award was presented to Ensemble HD to recognize the innovation behind the fully-integrated audio and video projection system.

“We are honored to be recognized by Projector Reviews with this new award,” said Rajeev Mishra, director, Projector Marketing and Development, Epson America. “The industry’s support and excitement surrounding the Ensemble HD is a testament to Epson’s dedication to bring high-quality, affordable home entertainment solutions to more homes across the nation.”

The system offers a complete home entertainment solution for thousands of dollars less than comparable home theater systems, and is designed to seamlessly transform virtually any room into a high-performance home cinema. Featuring a high-definition projector for crystal-clear, widescreen video, Ensemble HD also integrates surround sound engineered by Atlantic Technology and a motorized 100-inch screen to provide the ultimate big screen experience at home. Also included is an AV controller with built-in DVD player, universal remote and equipment cabinet. In addition, Ensemble HD comes with all the necessary mounts, brackets, cables and materials needed for professional installation in as little as four hours.

 “We are delighted to award Epson and the Ensemble HD with our first-ever Outstanding Product Award,” said Art Feierman, president, and editor, Projector Reviews. “The Ensemble HD’s real strength is that it is a single, beautifully balanced system, purchased from a single source, and installed in an afternoon. Home Theater done great, and made easy! The concept completely changes the dynamics of home theater purchases. The complete integration of the system should save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, compared to building a system piece by piece. The Ensemble HD makes a real, high quality home theater a reality for millions of families.”
