Amazing image quality
3x Brighter Colors with Epson1
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness (color light output), and Epson
3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colors than leading competitive projectors1.
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.

Award-winning Faroudja DCDi Cinema for advanced video quality
DcDi on
Faroudja DCDi Cinema is a video enhancement technology, used primarily for film
viewing, that produces exceptional image quality without introducing artifacts. Faroudja
developed DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) to reduce jagged images
by using a unique algorithm. This algorithm, in combination with the technology’s
decoding, deinterlacing and enhancement features, won an Emmy® Award from the
National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

DICOM Simulation Mode4
DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in
Medicine) is a standard for handling, storing,
printing and transmitting medical imaging
information. The projector’s DICOM Simulation
Mode enables users to reproduce images with an
advanced grayscale level that simulates DICOM
Part 14. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale
medical images, such as X-rays, for training and
educational purposes.

Horizontal keystone slider
Epson’s horizontal image correction means you can project a rectangular image
from almost any angle. Just move the easy-slide control bar to make the necessary
adjustments. Your projector can be off to the side and above or below the screen, while
your presentation is front and center.

  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 Color brightness (color light output) and white brightness (white light output) will vary depending on usage conditions. Color light output measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4; white light output measured in accordance
with ISO 21118.
  3 Consult your user manual for input combinations.
  4 This projector does not meet the DICOM standard Part 14 and should not be used as a medical diagnostic device.
  5 Data source: ProjectorCentral.com, Jan. 2014. Average of 1243 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 six brightness segments. 3LCD projectors averaged less required electricity per lumen in each of the six segments.
  6 9 out of 10 people preferred images from leading 3LCD projectors over leading 1-chip DLP business and education projectors. Leading projectors selected according to NPD data as of July 2013. Based on independent
U.S. research conducted by Radius Research (July 2013).
  7 Works only with Epson projectors that support presentation over the network capability.
  8 Lamp life will vary depending upon mode selected, environmental conditions and usage. Lamp brightness decreases over time.
