Welcome. Epson PowerLite 62c, PowerLite 82c



T he Epson




62c and 82c are ultra-portable projectors that offer 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness. From classrooms to auditoriums, your full-color presentations and videos will be bright and visible even in ordinary indoor lighting. Additionally, the projector’s built-in amplifier and speaker deliver powerful 5 watt audio, making it perfect for presentations in large rooms.

Images are displayed at a native resolution of 800 × 600 pixels

(PowerLite 62c) or 1024 × 768 pixels (PowerLite 82c). Epson 3LCD technology ensures accurate color and remarkable saturation, even in well-lit rooms. Support for S-Video contributes to theater-quality performance.

You can connect the projector to a wide range of computers, including



-compatible PCs and laptops, Apple







series (including G3, G4, and G5 systems), PowerBook

® computers, and many iMac


and iBook


series systems. With Epson’s patented SizeWise

technology, the projector supports computer displays ranging from VGA through UXGA.

You can use any of the following video sources: HDTV, VCR, DVD player, gaming console (such as Microsoft







2, and Nintendo GameCube

), camcorder, digital camera, or laser disc player. The projector supports NTSC, PAL, and

SECAM video formats.

You can connect up to four devices to the projector at the same time.

The source buttons let you easily switch among them, and a dedicated audio port for each source lets you switch sound as well as video. With the projector’s

Source Search

button, you don’t even have to identify your input source. Just press the button until you see the image you want on the screen.




To prevent unauthorized use of the projector, you can assign a password, create a user logo which is displayed at startup to identify the projector, and disable the projector’s buttons through the

Operation Lock feature. For more information about security features,

see page 65.

Getting the Most from Your Projector

Depending on your presentation, you can take advantage of any or all of these options:

Connecting to a laptop or other computer

If you want to connect the projector to a laptop or desktop

computer, see page 18. For additional presentation control, you

can connect a USB cable to the projector for running slide shows, and connect an external monitor to view the presentation on your computer simultaneously.

Connecting to video sources

You can connect a DVD player, VCR, HDTV, camcorder, laser disc player, digital camera, and other video sources to your

projector. See page 24 for instructions.

Using the remote control

The remote control lets you switch from computer to video sources, zoom in on part of your image, freeze or mute the presentation, and adjust many other projector features. For

details, see Chapter 3.

By connecting a USB cable to your projector, you can also use the remote control as a wireless mouse. This lets you click through computer-based presentations (such as PowerPoint ® ) from up to

20 feet away. For more information, see page 49.
