3x Brighter Colors
with Epson 1
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
