Projector and projection screen
A projector is an optical device that projects an image onto a surface, commonly a projection screen. Projectors mostly creates an image by shining a light through a small transparent lens.Although some newer types of projectors can project the image directly, by using lasers.
There are multiple type of Digital Projectors depending upon the technology they deploy to produce an image on the projector screen. The different types of Digital Projectors include;
- LCD Projector
Epson projectors utilize 3-chip LCD technology (3LCD) for true-to-life color and vibrant details that can be seen on a projector screen even in bright light. Projector brightness is measured by lumens. The higher the lumens, the brighter the projector will be at a given distance.
Epson projectors offers a wide selection, ranging from basic 1080p beamers to higher-end versions that support 4K and HDR. What they all have in common is the company’s 3LCD technology, which uses three LCD panels to produce the images.
Epson is the biggest manufacturer to employ this approach, with main competitors Optoma and BenQ both using DLP instead. The advantage of three LCD panels – one each for the three primary colours of red, green and blue – is that there’s no need for a colour wheel.
- As a result LCD projectors don’t suffer from the colour fringing (rainbow) artefacts that plague single-chip DLP projectors. Conversely an LCD projector isn’t quite as sharp as its DLP counterpart because the three panels need to be aligned.
- The biggest advantage LCD has over DLP is flexibility when it comes to installation. Epson’s projectors have full lens controls with focus, shift and zoom. The higher end models even include motorised controls and offer lens memories for different aspect ratios.
Why buy an Epson projector?
- As for budget, the higher-end of the projector market is dominated by Sony and JVC, but when it comes to the more affordable models, one projector manufacturer sits above all the others – Epson.
- In terms of performance these projectors don’t disappoint either. while not native 4K they are still capable of big, bright and detailed images that are uncompromisingly cinematic. The use of the three LCD panels also allows Epson’s projectors to reproduce 100% of the Rec.709 and DCI-P3 colour gamuts with impressive accuracy.
- The build quality is often excellent, with the more expensive models including a backlit remote control and motorised lens cover to keep out dust. The flagship model even has a wireless option to avoid long HDMI cable runs.
- Aside from the inherent limitations of LCD technology, Epson’s range of home cinema projectors deliver exceptional performance, and the top-tier models offer specs that are second to none, with features not found on projectors costing twice as much.
