You can play music, videos and photos straight from your iPod, iPhone and iPad3 devices without having to download any special apps.
The Big Screen
With this ultra-modern projector you can have the big screen in your living room. It projects rich colours and sharp images, and is super-bright. You don’t have to draw the curtains because it can project clear images, even in daylight.
With a resolution of 720p HD-Ready, you can project an image size of over 300 inches straight onto a wall, or onto one of the optional screens available.
Project up to 300 inches without closing the curtains
Easy to Use
This really is a plug and play product. To play content you simply connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad device to the docking station situated at the back of the projector. TV episodes and films previously downloaded from iTunes can be played on a large, cinematic scale. In addition, you can play your favourite Blu-ray, DVD, PC, TV and gaming content thanks to the MG-850HD’s versatile connectivity options.
The MG-850HD includes a manual horizontal and vertical keystone correction feature that ensures you get a perfectly-aligned projection, every time. It also has an easy-to-use menu when your Apple devices are connected.
And if you don’t want to project an image, you can simply turn the lamp off to transform the MG-850HD into a traditional docking station.

Why Choose a 3LCD Projector?
As the number one projector manufacturer in Europe, 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 DLP4 projector systems, which create thousands of pulses of coloured light per second. They do this by shining lamp light through red, green, blue and white5 parts of a rotating colour wheel. These light pulses are then reflected by a DMD6 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.
Single panel system
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.

Ok you think having a dock in the back of the projector will make like easy? Noooo it does in fact make life harder! It also DOES NOT project anything that has NOT been downloaded! saying that a trip to buy a couple of items to the apple store soon sorted that and I was mirroring my Ipad, bypassing the dock ! I also had a problum with this projector, so talked to epson ! They more or less told me to get on my bike as I had not brought it from one of the recommended outlets!, a big thumbs down to EPSON
Turned up faulty when amazon contacted just offered refund, if I just wanted refund I wouldn't of purchased it in the end, had to pay epson £99 to get fixed which amazon refunded after me contacting them. The fault was the screen was yellow all the time which epson said was a big fault, which makes you wonder do amazon test thier products before releasing them. Obviously not!!!!!
Have found this very useful for all kinds of power point presentations, laptop photos and DVDs. Ability to use straight off a USB stick most useful feature as use with teenagers who have their own laptops with different terminals/no suitable terminals. Still to try with an i pod. Need to purchase extra leads to connect to laptop.
