Voted #1 in Image Quality
Epson 3LCD projectors display far more accurate color than DLP projectors. For more accurate color, you need both high color brightness (color light output) and a wide range of color (color gamut).
Color brightness is the number of lumens displayed when projecting color. Traditional lumens specifications only measure white brightness, so look for two separate brightness measurements.
Color gamut is the range of colors a projector is capable of reproducing. When the color gamut of a projector is small, colors will be displayed far less accurately.
Epson 3LCD projectors have 3x Higher Color Brightness2 and up to 3x Wider Color Gamut4 than DLP projectors.
3LCD, the #1 projection technology in the world, has:
- Both high color brightness and high white brightness
- 3 chips for up to 3x Higher Color Brightness6 and up to 3x Wider Color Gamut4 for far more accurate color than DLP projectors
- 25% lower power consumption for lower energy costs7
- 25 years of road-tested reliability
- A nationwide study reveals that 9 out of 10 people prefer images from 3LCD projectors8

Protect your investment with Epson’s long-life filter
Because we know how important it is to protect your valuable investment, Epson has designed our 3LCD projectors with a long-lasting filter that gives you added peace of mind. The filter helps limit the amount of dust that can settle on the internal components and reduce the lamp life or dull the image. When the time comes to clean or change the filter, just open the door, vacuum the dust off or replace the filter, close the door, and you’re done.
