Epson's unique technologies

1.Beautiful image reproduction

2.Improved usability

Crystal Clear Fine (C2 Fine) next-generation liquid crystal technology

Some of Epson's home projectors models are equipped with full high vision liquid crystal panels that deliver 1920 x 1080 resolution. These liquid crystal panels use Epson's proprietary Crystal Clear Fine (generally referred to as C squared fine) next-generation liquid crystal technology. C2 Fine technology, based on inorganic alignment layer and vertical alignment technology, has made it possible to achieve high contrast, lustrous, high quality visuals. As a result, users can enjoy the high-definition, minutely-detailed visuals of digital high-definition broadcasts or next-generation optical disks.


Auto Iris for achieving high contrast ratio

Epson's projectors are equipped with Auto Iris,(Equipped in some models) which is a function that automatically recognize the brightness of the projected visuals, and with a tracking speed of 1/60 sec., automatically adjusts the aperture that controls the intensity of the light from the lamp. This makes it possible to brilliantly reproduce highlights and shadows of the ever-changing visuals, and give a sense of natural depth and solidity to the visuals.


Frame interpolation technology, which enables viewers to enjoy even more beautiful and smoother visuals

Frame interpolation technology compares successive frames and automatically generates and inserts new frames between them. This technology can take an original visual piece consisting of, for example, 60 frames per second, and generate and insert frames between these frames so that the visual is displayed at 120 frames per second. Furthermore, through the frame interpolation IC that is provided, the accuracy and speed of the processing of the visuals is enhanced, enabling the viewer to enjoy speedy visuals that are beautifully sharp with reduced after-images.


Super resolution technology, which makes it possible to project clear, vivid images from input low-resolution images

Through single-frame super-resolution technology, the resolution of expanded images that have become blurred during projection can be sharpened, enabling users to enjoy DVD visuals as if they were in full high-definition. Furthermore, this technology is capable of converting the low-resolution portions (the blurred portions) of full high-definition visuals into smooth, sharp visuals. By processing the input image from a single frame, it is able to carry out real-time processing of videos and dependably keep up with speedy scenes.


New Epson Cinema Filter, makes it possible to reproduce an extensive range of colors of exceptional purity

The New Epson Cinema Filter is a new optical filter that extracts the primary colors of high purity from the light of the projector lamp. Unlike a digital projector, which makes color corrections electronically, the New Epson Cinema Filter processes the colors optically, making it possible to maintain high contrast. As a result, an extensive range of color reproduction that is 115% of the NTSC color gamut is achieved. In addition, because it is capable of obtaining high purity of the primary colors, the original colors of the visual source can be reproduced with outstanding quality and accuracy.


Epson's original Bright 3D Drive high-speed drive technology

In general, images from 3D projectors are darker than those from regular 2D projectors. However, this difference has been eliminated by Epson's original Bright 3D Drive technology. By using a 480 Hz high-speed drive system, Epson has managed to reduce the blackout time (the time that both right and left lenses in 3D glasses are closed) and achieve bright 3D images.

Electronic whiteboard function that doesn't require a dedicated interactive whiteboard

By installing Easy Interactive Function in some projectors, it becomes possible for the customers to operate a PC from the image projected on the screen by using the attached digital pen as a mouse. Installing dedicated pen tool software enables the user to add text, drawings, and other materials directly to the contents projected on the screen. The contents projected on the screen, including the added text or drawings, can then be saved to the PC.


Quick setup

Before images can be projected on the screen by the projector, a considerable amount of time must often be spent making various adjustments, such as horizontal-vertical keystone corrections, and adjustments to the screen size and focus. Pushing the Quick Setup button enables the user to start using the projector right away, without having to take the time to make any adjustments or corrections. The simple action of pushing this single button engages the projector to automatically make the adjustments to produce the perfect screen conditions.


Quick wireless

 

Inserting the Quick Wireless Key into a USB port of a wireless LAN enabled PC automatically sets up the wireless LAN configuration. This makes it possible to use the projector with wireless connectivity. Connecting the projector with a number of PCs can be easily accomplished by simply removing the Quick Wireless Key from one PC and reinserting it in another.


USB display

Even if no RGB cable is available, it is possible to transmit visuals and audio from a PC to the projector by using a USB cable.
