*Colour brightness (colour light output) in brightest mode, measured by a third-party lab in accordance with IDMS 15.4. Colour brightness will vary depending on usage
conditions. Top-selling Epson 3LCD projectors versus top-selling 1-chip DLP projectors based on PMA Research sales data for Dec.2015 through Nov.2016.
True Colours
White brightness alone cannot bring the true colours you see every day. While other manufacturers of 1-chip DLP technology believe they
can improve image quality by just increasing the brightness of their projectors' white light output, Epson ensures that its projectors
combine brightness and True Colour to create vibrant and realistic images with 3LCD technology across every projector model.
3LCD Technology
All Epson projectors are based on 3-chip LCD technology for amazing colour, incredible detail and solid reliability. 3LCD’s 3-chip architecture
dedicates an entire chip to process each primary colour – red, green and blue, continuously. Unlike single-chip technology that delivers
colour sequentially, you get full-time colour. The result is vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD’s true-to-life colour.
Up to 3x Brighter Colours with Epson Projectors*
Epson projectors use 3LCD Engines that have no colour wheel with a white segment and therefore don't force a trade-off between white and
colour brightness.
In fact, Epson projectors have up to 3x Brighter Colours than their leading competitive 1-chip DLP projectors*. If you are looking for business
and education projectors or 720p home entertainment projectors, know that choosing Epson projectors means up to 3x brighter colours. If
you are looking for 1080p home entertainment projectors, you consistently get 2x and up to 3x Brighter Colours than competitor 1-chip DLP
All Epson projectors list both White Brightness and Colour Brightness specifications, and all have high Colour Brightness.

High Brightness
Even though its light weight and compact size enables it to be carried from room to room, the projector is capable of highly visible images thanks to its high brightness (up to
3,800lm) and superior 15,000:1 contrast ratio. Room lights don't have to be dimmed to see bright and clearly projected images, allowing meeting participants to concentrate
better for improved meeting productivity.
Collaborative Presenting
Multiple users can connect simultaneously to one projector using EPSON iProjection software which allows you to display four individual PC
screens simultaneously over the network (wired or wireless), with up to 50 users connected to the same projector. You can drag and drop
participants into or out of one of the four quadrants. This feature is a great tool for meetings or classroom projects where multiple users
want to present and compare their screens. You can also connect up to four remote projectors at the same time and show the same multiscreen image; another great tool for remote meeting setups.
With the EPSON iProjection App, you can even display and control content from your iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, and Chrome devices. Just
turn on the projector, use the Epson iProjection App to scan the on-screen QR code, and share content on the big screen. (An optional
ELPAP10 Wireless LAN unit is required for the EB-970, EB-980W, and EB-990U).
Split Screen
Split screen allows you to display content from two inputs simultaneously, side by side, on a single screen. With three layout options you can display video and presentation
materials, and run video on both screens.
Easy image adjustments with auto vertical correction
Position your projector almost anywhere in the room and still get a correctly proportioned image with auto vertical correction and
Easy-Slide horizontal image correction. ’Slide keystone adjuster’ enables you to adjust the image easily and quickly, even in a
limited space, making it perfect for narrow spaces, such as on a desk
Auto Power On Feature
The projector starts automatically upon connecting a VGA*, HDMI**, or USB cable to the device itself. This feature means you
no longer have to use the power on button because startup is activated with cable insertion.
* VGA auto power on is available with Computer 1 only
** HDMI auto power on is available with HDMI1 only
New Home Screen
New home screen offers quick and easy access to a variety of useful functions. Also, all source information, no matter what the
source input is, can be seen at a glance. Wireless connections can be made easily because all the information you need is right
there on the screen.
Longer Lamp Life
The long 12,000H* lamp life saves time and money by reducing the frequency of costly lamp replacements.
