A new take on pixel performance
Epson's 5030UB was a huge favorite with our customers. The 5040UB builds on this popular platform by retaining many of the 5030UB's features and adding some important improvements. The biggest is 4K Enhancement Technology, which shifts each pixel diagonally by half a pixel to provide a sharper image. This allows the 5040UB to render 4K content clearly with remarkable detail, for a bright, crisp image.

Enough light for bright rooms, enough control for dark rooms
Many high-performance projectors are designed for use in darkened or dimly lit rooms. That's fine if you have a dedicated home theater, but if you don't it can be a limitation. The 5040UB has loads of light power so it's ideal for real-world family rooms, home theaters with really big screens, and situations where others in the room need to keep some lights on.
The 5040UB's high brightness also comes in handy for 3D viewing since 3D glasses tend to dim the picture a bit. Three of the projector's picture settings are dedicated to 3D, so you can enjoy a gorgeous 3D picture without changing the settings for watching in 2D. If you're able to make your room really dark, you'll want to use one of the projector's lower light settings, and turn on the "auto iris" feature, which optimizes black level and contrast for each scene.
