Hewlett-Packard has upped the ante for computer firms entering the digital home market with its release of the portable ep9012 widescreen Home Cinema Projector. It is the first home projector to integrate a DVD player, a 30-watt subwoofer system and 2.1 surround sound to provide cinema-quality experience in the comfort of a user's home. The high-definition television broadcast-ready ep9012 is equipped with S-video, composite video, component video and Video Graphics Array input. It delivers 1,600:1 contrast ratio for crisp and clear images. It also supports VCD, SVCD, CD-Rom, CD audio and MP3 playback. Until February 28, each ep9012 purchase will come with a free HP 60-inch portable projector screen. That is, for those ready to spend $19,988 on this high-end HP home projector.
