PowerLite® 1945W/1955/1965 multimedia PROJECTORS
The best-selling projectors in the world.
Epson offers a wide range of high-quality projectors to meet most any need. Built with
image quality and reliability in mind, EPSON® projectors enhance communication and inspire
collaboration, while offering a low total cost of ownership. From ultraportable projectors designed
for educational settings to boardroom-ready installable business projectors,
Epson has the model made for you.
Brilliant Image Quality
3LCD technology — for quality
and color that’s beyond amazing
Amazing color and white light output
The PowerLite 1900 Series delivers true-to-life, vibrant, colorful
images, even in ambient light. For today’s color-rich, multimedia
content, users want a projector that delivers both optimum
white and color imagery. That is why the industry has developed
a new metric called Color Light Output.
Innovative technology with proven reliability
• 3 chips for full-time, vibrant color
• 25% less electricity required per lumen of
brightness when compared to 1-chip DLP
• Over 20 years of road-tested reliability built
into every projector

WXGA (1280 x 800), 16:10 native resolution —
for remarkable detail and widescreen
convenience (1945W only)
The widescreen PowerLite 1945W is ideal for use with the
latest-generation widescreen computers and great for projecting
a wide variety of content. Its native 16:10 aspect ratio allows
you to fully utilize the capabilities of your widescreen computer,
giving you 30% more image area than a 4:3 image.
The PowerLite 1945W also allows you to display
4:3 content without losing image quality.
PowerLite 1955/1965
Always look for Color Light Output when
choosing a projector
• For optimum image quality and performance, the projector
you choose should offer equal levels of color and white
light output
• When the two measurements are not identical, images do
not look balanced
• Whites may be brighter, making the colored areas look
dull and flat
• The combination of color richness (color light output)
and brightness (white light output) is as critical as the
combination of bass and treble would be when purchasing
audio equipment

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 and Sciences.

This projector does not meet the DICOM standard Part 14 and should not be used as a medical diagnostic device.
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 effciency 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.
Works only with EPSON projectors that support presentation over the network capability.
