The Epson 3-chip 3LCD Solution
All Epson projectors are based on 3-chip LCD technology for amazing color, incredible detail and solid reliability. 3LCD's 3-chip architecture dedicates an entire chip to process each primary color continuously, unlike single-chip technology that delivers color sequentially. The result is full-time color for vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD's true-to-life color.
Epson projectors have up to 3x brighter colors3 than leading 1-chip digital light projector (DLP) technology projectors. 3LCD technology uses 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images, unlike 1-chip DLP projectors that use a color wheel—so there is no trade-off between white and color brightness.
No Rainbow Effect
Projectors with only 1-chip DLP technology use a rotating color wheel to project color sequentially, which causes some viewers to see a phenomenon known as the “Rainbow Effect.” Epson’s 3LCD projector technology effectively eliminates the Rainbow Effect by simultaneously generating red, green, and blue light.
