In DLP, even with BrilliantColor, only one color is available at a time, resulting in lower color brightness. When a
white segment is used to improve brightness, Color Brightness and Gamut Volume are sacrificed

Sampling of over 200 projectors from 18 brands tested by 3rd party lab
Data obtained from Projector Central, as specified by the manufacturers. Competitor manufacturers do not provide Color Brightness (Color Light
Output) data. Color Brightness was determined in compliance with IDMS 15.4 by 3rd party laboratory testing of a single unit.
Brighter Color
Color Brightness is up to 3 times higher with 3LCD
technology for vivid, bright colors
*Compared to leading 1-chip DLP projectors based on NPD data July 2011 through June 2012. Colour
Brightness (Colour Light Output) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4. Colour Brightness may vary
depending on customer usage. For more information please visit www.colorlightoutput.com
Summary:
• All Epson Projectors have
– Color Brightness specs
– 3-Chip LCD (3LCD) Engines
– High Color Brightness
Insist on Color Brightness Specs
when Buying Projectors
