Epson world leaders

iPhone, iPod, iPad Projector

If you love your iPhone, iPod or iPad1 and other cool products – this is for you. It is a projector and entertainment centre, combined in one stylish unit with a built-in docking station2.

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.

Epson Technology at the Heart

This projector delivers a 3,000:1 contrast ratio and is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb-quality images. An equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,800 lumens gives a bright, clear image.

Security and Peace of Mind

This projector has built in security features, including a Kensington lock and iPod password protection. For your peace of mind, the lamp comes with a three-year guarantee – just what you would expect from the world’s leading projector manufacturer3.

 Digital Projector Colour Light Output (CLO)

Digital Projector Colour Light Output (CLO)

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.

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
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.
