Amazing Image Quality

3x Brighter Colors with Epson
3x Brighter Colors with Epson
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness. Epson 3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colors than leading competitive projectors. Delivering 3000 lumens of color brightness and 3000 lumens of white brightness, the PowerLite W16 uses 3LCD, 3-chip technology for brilliant images with true-to-life color.

One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. A projector's specification needs to show both high color brightness and high white brightness. If color brightness is lower than white brightness, images may be dark, dull and lose detail. If not provided, be sure to ask for a projector's color brightness specification.

(Epson 3LCD and 1-chip DLP competitor). Both projectors are set to their brightest mode.

3LCD3LCD — The #1 projection technology in the world

  • All 3LCD projectors have both high color brightness and high white brightness
  • All 3LCD projectors have 3 chips
  • 25% lower power consumption for lower energy costs
  • 20 years of road-tested reliability

E-TORL lamp
Energy-efficient E-TORL lamp, exclusively from Epson

  • Delivers more lumens per watt and lasts up to 5000 hours
  • Minimizes both light diffraction and light leakage
  • E-TORL lamps maximize your presentation time, while minimizing your costs

Brilliant widescreen performance
With WXGA resolution (16:10 aspect ratio), the PowerLite Presenter is ideal for use with the latest-generation widescreen computers and for projecting high-definition content. It gives you:

  • 30% more image area than a 4:3 image
  • 10% more image area than a 16:9 image

The PowerLite Presenter still allows you to display 4:3 and 16:9 content without losing image quality.

Remarkable Widescreen Performance

Dynamic classroom content in 2D or 3D – the choice is up to you

Now, you can do even more to engage every student in your classroom. Driven by 3LCD technology, the versatile PowerLite W16 ensures amazing quality and color for both 2D and 3D content. Add 3D material to enhance each lesson and ensure a truly dynamic visual experience. Studies show that retention is often increased when 3D visuals are used.

What you'll need to bring active 3D to your classroomWhat you'll need to bring active 3D to your classroom

  • A PowerLite W16 projector
  • Active shutter 3D glasses (sold separately)
  • 3D content
  • A media player with HDMI output
  • An optional ceiling mount (if you choose to mount the projector)

Supports multiple 3D formats
The PowerLite W16 supports multiple 3D formats, eliminating the need for an external converter box. However, most 3D-ready projectors only support one format, and an external converter box must be purchased in order to support multiple formats. So, when you are evaluating the right 3D projector for your classroom, make sure to check to see if the projector supports your preferred multiple 3D formats.

Why is Color Brightness Important?

What should you look for?

Look for two lumens specifications, one for Color Brightness and a separate White Brightness spec, when comparing projector models. To select a projector with vibrant color, crisp detail and realistic skin tones, look for both High Color Brightness and High White Brightness.

Low Color Brightness can result in images that are 1/3 as bright.

Actual photographs of side-by-side projected images from an identical signal source. Price, resolution and white brightness are similar for both projectors (Epson 3LCD and 1-chip DLP competitor). Both projectors are set to their brightest mode.

What is Color Brightness?

Color Brightness is a scientifically set global standard that measures a projector's Color Light Output. It was concluded that there are such significant differences in color brightness performance among different projector models and brands that color should be measured separately to provide consumers with fair and accurate information.

What does it mean to you?

The Color Brightness specification allows you to make a more informed decision when purchasing a projector. Color Brightness (or Color Light Output) measures the brightness of the colors in a projected image, not just the brightness of white. This is critically important as most projectors are used for color content, and color is a critical component of picture quality.

Where did the spec come from?

A committee of display experts, after extensive scientific evaluation, established a global standard – the International Display Metrology Standard (IDMS). The standard, published in June 2012, IDMS version 1.03, covers the three leading international display standards organizations worldwide – the Society for Information Display (SID), the Visual Electronics Standards Association (VESA) and the International Consortium Display Metrology (ICDM).

Frequently Asked Questions

Does “lumens” cover both Color Brightness and White Brightness?

No. Unless you see a separate specification for Color Brightness, you are only getting the White Brightness of the projector. Color Brightness may be 1/3 of the brightness stated.

How is Color Brightness determined?

Color Brightness (Color Light Output) is measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4.

Can there be a difference between Color Brightness and White Brightness?

Yes. For example, a projector with 3000 lumens of White Brightness may only have 800 lumens of Color Brightness. Image quality can vary greatly, even among projectors at similar price points and with traditional specifications – you may not get what you paid for. Color Brightness may be 1/3 of the White Brightness stated. Look for separate Color Brightness and White Brightness specifications to ensure you get the best overall image quality for everything you display.

Are LED lumens different than regular lumens?

No. A lumen is an international standard measurement of light output, regardless of the light source.

Why can't I find Color Brightness as a published specification?

Not all projectors have both High Color Brightness and High White Brightness, and many manufacturers may not want you to know their projectors may be 1/3 as bright when it comes to color.
