Thumb screws are included
for easy connectivity and lens
replacement. This comes in
handy for rental and
staging applications.
Protect your investment — long-life
electrostatic air filter
The PowerLite Pro Z8255NL filter is designed to protect the
optical engine, lamp and electronics from small dust particles
that can enter any projector. It has a recommended 10,000hour filter cleaning schedule6. The EPSON electrostatic filter
captures particles as small as three microns, due in part to
its pleated, expanded design. With one air intake and one

exhaust path, the PowerLite Pro Z8255NL offers an efficient
airflow system for optimum cooling of key components and
a reduction in dust-related problems. Additionally, it has the
capability to send an e-mail notification out through the EPSON
Monitor utility when an increase in temperature is detected, due
to clogging.
Easy maintenance
Offering convenient access to the lamps and filter, the
PowerLite Pro Z8255NL makes maintenance easier than
ever, even if the projector is ceiling mounted. The lamp cover
is located on the rear side panel and there are no screws, so
the lid can be removed without any special tools. In addition
to easy lamp and filter replacements, the Z8255NL includes
features that make it easy to monitor and control. With EasyMP

Easy Installation Tools
Lens shift
EPSON lens shift technology enables outstanding installation
flexibility with an incredible range of up to + or – 56% on the
vertical axis and up to + or – 6% on the horizontal axis. Users
can operate the lens shift functions using the remote control,
the projector control panel, or control commands.

Quiet, reliable liquid cooling system
Epson’s innovative system uses liquid to cool the LCD chips
directly. The liquid absorbs the heat and is then cooled by a
peltier device, which is then cooled by a fan, thereby keeping
the overall optical engine cool. This system design promotes
greater reliability and enables stable operation in temperatures
up to 122 °F (50 °C). In addition, it offers quiet, unobtrusive
operation and allows for off-axis installation orientations.
Arc correction
Using arc correction, you can adjust each side of a projected
image in an arch or barrel-shaped way, making it easier than
ever to get a perfectly rectangular image.
Centered lens design
Featuring a centered lens design, the PowerLite Pro Z8255NL
makes installation easy to plan. Positioning the ceiling mount,
screen and projector can be performed individually and
independent of one another.
Six powered lens options
For great flexibility, the PowerLite Pro Z8255NL offers a total
of six lenses including short, wide, and rear, along with mid- to
long-throw lenses that allow users to choose the motorized
