Intuitive one-touch horizontal keystone correction eliminates distorted images for more flexible projector placement. Epson 3LCD Technology – For Bright, Faithful Colours 3LCD projectors offer brighter and more accurate colours as they produce different shades and hues by filtering, then mixing beams of the three primary colours (red, green and blue). In a 3LCD projector, white light is first split into the three beams of primary colours. Each beam is then filtered through its own LCD that will give each individual pixel of the image its exact brightness for each colour. The colour beams are then perfectly recombined in a prism before being projected out as a complete image. This compares to projectors using single-chip technology that actually project individual colours sequentially by filtering their single white light beam through a colour wheel, and then relying on human colour perception to combine the colours in the viewers’ minds. As a result, 3LCD projectors also offer greater detail, smoother gradations, no “colour breakup” effect, are easier on viewers’ eyes, and consumer about 25% less power to achieve the same brightness compared to a single-chip projector using a lamp of the same wattage. 3LCD projector : RGB are projected at the same time, which makes the single composite image easy on the eyes. • An independent test by projector review media ProjectorCentral.com in 2009 of about 800 projectors found that on average, 3LCD projectors use 25% less power than single-chip projectors. www.3lcd.com Colour Light Output – True Colours Shining Through The Brightness Myth CLO to Enlighten Did you know that the brightness specification (in lumens) for projectors is only a measurement of its white light output? To help buyers make better-educated decisions, colour scientists at the U.S. government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST – www.nist.gov) have developed Colour Light Output (CLO) as a specification to provide critical information on a projector’s ability to deliver colour. In fact, many manufacturers artificially boost their projectors’ brightness rating by increasing their white light production capability at the expense of colour brightness. How is Colour Light Output measured? x x x x x x x x x x Red xx x Blue xx x Green xx x xx Green x xx Blue x xx Red x xx Green x xx Blue x xx Red Brightness (or White Light Output) measures the total amount of white light projected in lumens on a nine point grid. It does not measure colour. Colour Light Output is critically important because it measures the brightness of Red, Green and Blue. In a 3LCD projector, these primary colours create white when combined in the right proportions. Beautifully balanced colour is possible when Red, Green and Blue combine to produce the exact colours required. Colour Light Output provides users with an additional way to evaluate a projector and make more discerning buying decisions. 3LCD Projector High CLO 2200 Lumens = 2200 Lumens Colour Light Output Brand X Low CLO Colour Light Output uses 3 sets of a nine-point grid to measure the primary colours - red, green and blue, using the same approach used to measure White Light Output in lumens.
