Epson EB-S18 Projector
With an equally high White and Colour Light Output of 3,000 lumens, SVGA resolution and digital zoom, this LCD projector delivers bright business presentations easily. You no longer have to sit in dark meeting rooms in order to see those important and bright, vivid colours. The EB-S18 features an eco-tab setting, auto lamp dimming function and an A/V mute timer.
High Quality, Bright and Vibrant Images
This LCD projector effortlessly displays bright images with vivid colours for a crisp, clear picture: ideal for presentations and moving images, and is aided by the 10,000:1 contrast ratio. With an HDMI input, high definition video and audio content are easily played with the same high quality you would expect from Epson.
Colour Light Output (CLO)
Epson had a bright idea -- measure the Colour Light Output (CLO) instead of just the white. High CLO means colours are up to 3 times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors, meaning you don’t need to worry about your presentation displaying dark, dull images.
Colour Brightness is a scientifically set global standard that measures a digital projector’s CLO. It was concluded that there are such significant differences in colour brightness performance among projector models that colour should be measured separately to provide fair and accurate information.
Colour is an important part of image quality, which is why a projector’s colour brightness, given in lumens, is important to know. If it’s not as high as the white brightness, images are duller and colours may appear washed out. Measure the brightness of the red, green and blue light and the resulting value is your CLO.
Look for 2 lumens specifications, 1 for CLO and a separate White Brightness specification. To select a projector with vibrant colour, crisp detail and realistic skin tones, look for Colour Brightness and White Brightness measurements which are equally high.
Thanks to its manual keystone slider and automatic vertical keystone correction, this projector is quick and simple to set-up. No matter the angle of the projector, you can easily align the projection to ensure a straight and correct image. The Colour Universal Design makes operating the projector easier, thanks to LED colours and menu icons on the projector's control panel.
The optional wireless connectivity allows you to show content easily from a range of devices without being connected to the projector via a cable.
Why Choose a 3LCD Projector?
Epson projectors use a 3LCD projection engine to deliver bright, clear images that are rich in detail and colour. Many other projectors use 1-chip DLP projector systems, which create thousands of pulses of coloured light per second. They do this by shining lamp light through red, green, blue and white parts of a rotating colour wheel. These light pulses are then reflected by a DMD device, which is on a hinge and has a tiny mirror for each pixel of the image.
The series of rapid colour bursts is then projected onto the screen. The viewer's brain can't pick out the individual flickers -- it mixes the basic colours that appear in succession in each pixel to come up with the final colour the viewer sees.
Epson’s 3LCD system works differently, using a combination of dichroic mirrors to separate the white light from the projector lamp into red, green and blue light. Each of the 3 light colours is then passed through its own LCD panel and recombined using a prism before being projected onto the screen.
With 1-chip DLP technology, colour break-up or the ‘rainbow effect’ can sometimes be seen. This occurs when the eye perceives the individual colours, and is a result of the colours being projected sequentially by the colour wheel. Epson’s 3LCD technology avoids this by including all 3 basic colours in each pixel of the projection, delivering superior Colour Light Output that’s easier on the eyes.
