The HC2250 has a contrast ratio of 70,000:1 while the contrast ratio of the HC2200 is 35,000:1.

Home Cinema models 2250 and 2200 each ships with a simple-to-use remote, and has built-in Google Assistant for voice search capabilities. Both models are optimized for big-screen video gaming with the inclusion of “gamma uplift” and 21:9 ultra-wide images so gamers can easily see dark areas and enjoy a wider viewing angle in gameplay, Epson said.

“People crave the big-screen movie theater experience, especially this year as cinemas nationwide had to shut their doors,” stated Rodrigo Catalan, senior product manager, projectors, Epson America. “Epson’s new affordable and easy-to-use home cinema projectors are the perfect choice for families looking to stream must-watch movies, TV shows and sporting events on a big screen from the comfort of their own home.”
