3 x Brighter Colors with Epson 1
Brilliant image quality requires high color
brightness (color light output), and Epson® 3LCD
projectors have 3 x Brighter Colors than leading
competitive projectors. 1
One brightness measurement (lumens) is not
enough. A projector‘s specification needs to
show both high color brightness and high white
brightness. If color brightness is lower than
white brightness, images may be dark, dull and
lose detail. If not provided, be sure to ask for a
projector’s color brightness specification.
3LCD — The #1 projection
technology in the world
• All 3LCD projectors have both high color
brightness and high white brightness
• All 3LCD projectors have 3 chips
• 25% lower power consumption for lower
energy costs 4
• 20 years of road-tested reliability
Get consistent, true-to-life color with Epson,
whether you’re projecting images with deep, dark colors or
a white screen with text.

Color brightness significantly lower than white brightness
Actual photograph of side by side projected images from an identical
signal source. Price, resolution and white brightness are similar for
both projectors (Epson 3LCD and 1-chip DLP competitor).
Both projectors are set to their brightest mode.
• Delivers more lumens per watt
and lasts up to 5000 hours 5
• Minimizes both light diffraction and
light leakage
• E-TORL lamps maximize your
presentation time, while minimizing your costs
The best-selling projectors in the world
Built with image quality and reliability in mind, Epson projectors enhance communication and inspire
collaboration, while offering a low total cost of ownership. From long-throw projectors designed
for traditional educational settings to ultra-short-throw and all-in-one solutions built for progressive
classrooms, Epson has the model made for you.

Remarkable widescreen performance
Works with passive 3D glasses
(1 pair included, others may be
purchased separately)
Featuring WXGA resolution (1280 x 800, 16:10 aspect ratio),
the PowerLite W16SK is ideal for use with the latest generation
widescreen computers, and great for projecting widescreen
content. It gives you:
Passive 3D projection offers an economical way to bring
engaging 3D content to an entire classroom. Because passive
3D glasses are so affordable, it’s easy to provide enough
glasses for every student. There’s no need to share glasses and
then worry about disinfecting them for use by another student.
And, there are no batteries or electronics to worry about. Best
of all, if the glasses are lost, they can easily be replaced without
significantly impacting your budget.
• 30% more image area than a 4:3 image
• 10% more image area than a 16:9 image
The PowerLite W16SK still allows you
to display 4:3 and 16:9 content.
High-definition video and audio with
HDMI digital connectivity
Delivers both audio and brilliant video content with just one
cable. Compatible with the latest laptops, Blu-ray and
media players.
Supports multiple 3D formats
The PowerLite W16SK supports multiple 3D formats, eliminating the need for an external converter box. However, most 3D-ready projectors
only support one format, and an external converter box must be purchased in order to support multiple formats. So, when you are evaluating
the right 3D projector for your classroom, make sure to check to see if the projector supports your preferred multiple 3D formats.

Dynamic classroom content in 2D or 3D – the choice is up to you
Now, you can do even more to engage every student in your classroom. Driven by 3LCD technology, the versatile
PowerLite W16SK ensures amazing quality and color for both 2D and 3D content. Add 3D material to enhance each
lesson and ensure a truly dynamic visual experience. Studies show that retention is often increased when 3D visuals
are used. (Source: 3D in the Classroom Public Health Support; American Optometric Association, 2011)

1 Compared to leading 1-chip DLP business and education projectors based on NPD data, July 2011 through June 2012. Color brightness (color light output) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4.
Color brightness will vary depending on usage conditions.
2 6000 lumens based on specification for single projectors. Color light output (color brightness) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4; white light output (white brightness) measured in accordance with ISO
21118. Color brightness and white brightness will vary depending on usage conditions; polarizing filters and keystoning will lower brightness.
3 Includes side-by-side, top-and-bottom and frame packing 3D formats.
4 Data source: ProjectorCentral.com Jan. 2012. Average of 1122 shipping models for which the manufacturers provided lumens and total power data, all resolutions and brightness levels.
Energy efficiency was measured as wattage per lumen. It was measured for both 3LCD and 1-chip projectors in each of five brightness segments. 3LCD projectors averaged less required electricity per lumen
in each of the five segments.
5 Lamp life will vary depending upon mode selected, environmental conditions and usage. Lamp brightness decreases over time.
