If you’re a first-time projector user or simply want a fuss-free XGA projector that’s easy to use, the Epson EB-X02, packed with user-friendly and smart features, is ideal.
The EB-X02 is equally at home in a meeting room and your living room. This makes it a great choice if you’re looking for a multi-purpose projector that’s suitable for both watching movies and giving presentations. As the EB-X02 is compact and lightweight, you have the flexibility of installing it on the ceiling, or using it as a mobile projector.
Plug in, connect one cable, and start. It’s that simple. Thanks to Epson’s unique features, setting-up couldn’t be easier.
Whether you want to watch films in the daytime, or present with the lights on so your audience can take notes, the EB–X02 is bright enough to handle it. With a Colour and White Light output of 2,600 lumens and a high contrast ratio of 3,000:1, you'll enjoy perfect picture quality, natural–looking colours and excellent brightness.
You can use the EB–X02 for 5,000 hours in eco mode before you have to think about replacing the lamp. Saving you even more money, Epson’s unique E–TORL lamp produces more light while using less energy than most other lamps.
Epson had a bright idea -- measure the 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 -- with an Epson projector you’ll get maximum impact.
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 Colour Brightness or Colour Light Output (CLO).
Digital projectors produce colour in different ways, resulting in big differences in colour brightness. Many manufacturers only quote the brightness in lumens of their projectors’ white light. This just shows how bright a projector is when showing a plain white image; it doesn’t give the full picture.
As the number one projector manufacturer in Europe1, Epson leads the market in the development of projector technology. 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 DLP2 projector systems, which create thousands of pulses of coloured light per second. They do this by shining lamp light through red, green, blue and white3 parts of a rotating colour wheel. These light pulses are then reflected by a DMD4 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 three 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 three basic colours in each pixel of the projection, delivering superior Colour Light Output that's easier on the eyes.
Epson E-TORL lamps deliver exceptional brightness while using less energy. They do this by using a unique configuration of reflectors to capture light. This improved efficiency means that Epson E-TORL lamps are better for both budgets and the environment.
