3-Chip Technology Up to 3x Wider Color Gamut

Amazing Colour

Astonishing, True-to-Life Colours with High
Colour Light Output

3LCD projectors use 3 chips in EVERY projector. The innovative 3-chip design sets itself apart by delivering vibrant, true-to-life images with up to 3 times Higher Colour Brightness1. Noticeably, 9 out of 10 people prefer images from 3LCD projectors over 1-chip DLP3. Additionally, 3LCD projectors have up to 3 times Wider Colour Gamut than 1-chip DLP projector2.

High Colour Light Output (Colour Brightness)

With the fast-paced development of high-definition, rich colour video and projection content, the quality and impact of the colour produced by a projector have become extremely important. Until now, buyers and users have had no way to determine if their projector is capable of producing rich, vivid colour. Colour Light Output or Colour Brightness addresses this issue.

Colour Light Output (Colour Brightness) is a new standard that gives buyers the data they need to compare projectors. Brightness has long been the specification used for projector comparisons; however, the old specification measured only White Light Output, rather than measuring both White Light Output and Colour Light Output. The vast majority of the projectors today project colour, so measuring White Light Output or White Brightness alone is insufficient. Colour Light Output or Colour Brightness gives projector buyers the data they need and have been missing.

The Colour Light Output (Colour Brightness) standard was published in May 2012. This new specification applies to all displays, including projectors for business, education or home. It clearly shows a major difference among projectors. The Colour Light Output (Colour Brightness) standard, for the first time, gives end users scientific data with which to compare colour. Leading manufacturers have adopted the standard in their product specification to help projector buyers. They now include two measurements – White Brightness (White Light Output) and Colour Brightness (Colour Light Output).

Projector buyers should look for and demand both numbers – White Brightness (White Light Output) and Colour Brightness (Colour Light Output). For optimum visual experience, make sure Colour Light Output (Colour Brightness) is equal to White Light Output (White Brightness).

Understanding Brightness and Colour

Current product specifications such as Brightness (or White Light Output), Contrast Ratio and Resolution give no information regarding a projector’s ability to reproduce colour.

There are vast differences in the colour performance of projectors on the market today. Look at the images below from two competing projectors.

Colour Light Output specification describes the difference in colour between these two projectors. Colour Light Output specification describes the difference in colour between these two projectors.

3LCD delivers up to 3x brighter colours*. When selecting a projector, ask for the Colour Light Output measurement. For additional information, please visit: http://www.colorlightoutput.com/ca/– this site is operated by Epson.

3-Chip Technology

3-Chip Technology

3LCD projectors use 3 chips in EVERY projector. With its 3-chip design, 3LCD delivers clear and vibrant images that are so true-to-life you may not believe your eyes.

In contrast to 3-chip 3LCD projectors, 1-chip DLP projectors use a rotating colour wheel that spins at a rapid speed, only displaying colours sequentially, which can result in colour break-up or the "rainbow effect."

*Compared to leading 1-chip DLP based on NPD data, July 2011 through June 2012. Colour Brightness (Colour Light Output) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4. Colour Brightness will vary depending on usage conditions.
