Big Screen Entertainment
The screen size ranges from 30 inches up to 300 inches, and can be adjusted to project a straight image effortlessly with keystone correction. This means you don't need large open areas or to clear a lot of space to enjoy.
No Lag Time
Switching to 'fast mode' means that fast-paced football games or online multiplayer video games are projected smoothly and accurately. With no lag time, the action is projected without delay -- important for tournaments or matches that need split-second reaction times.
The EH-TW5200 offers a wide selection of connectivity options, including one HDMI - MHL port. This means that not only can you play Full HD content (1920 x 1080 resolution), but also videos, music and photos from your smartphone and tablet.
3D content is noticeably bright thanks to Epson’s luminance enhancement technology. You can easily switch to 3D content that is noticeably brighter than many Full HD 3D home cinema projectors. Paired with lightweight, rechargeable Radio Frequency (RF) active shutter 3D glasses* you can easily enjoy your content without interference.
Digital Projector 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 -- 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 shows how bright a projector is when showing a plain white image; it doesn’t give the full picture.
Why Choose a 3LCD Projector?
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 1chip 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 easier on the eye.
