3-lcd projectors  

The largest selling home cinema projectors brands all use 3-LCD technology

What is 3LCD, you ask?

Well, in short, 3LCD is the technology that powers the majority of all education, business, and home theatre projectors from high end projectors like Epson's EH-TW8200 to cost effective models like EH-TW6600W and EH-TW5300.

3LCD is a sophisticated, innovative technology that utilizes 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images for the most demanding audiences.

When it comes to projector technology, image quality 3-LCD is the hallmark of excellence.  When powerful images are a must, so is a 3-LCD projector.  Projectors that use 3-LCD technology are easy on the eyes because they reproduce beautiful images in bright, natural colours with smooth motion and no colour break-up.

Bright 3-LCD colours Bright Images

Because 3LCD projectors continuously project Red, Green and Blue colours, images are bright and colourful. Our internal testing established that Epson 3LCD projectors consistently yielded brighter Red, Green and Blue colours than 1-Chip DLP™* projectors with similar lumens ratings. Every colour is faithfully reproduced by 3LCD projectors with dynamic brightness, vibrant and accurate colours that breathe life into any presentation, whether for high profile business seminars, movies or the latest gaming console. 3LCD projectors take image quality to its natural best.

The Luminance of Colours

Maximum brightness ( i.e. lumen level indicated on brochures ) is measured by projecting a 100% full white pattern image to a screen. However, in a true presentation scenario, images with colour are projected, meaning that the true lumens of each colour is extremely vital in such situations.

3LCD projectors can project a very wide range of colours. Smooth movement in the microscopic liquid crystals in LCD panels allows for natural colour changes, especially in darker parts of images. Conversely, due to limited gradation of darker shades, many 1-Chip DLP™* projectors cannot faithfully reproduce subtle colour changes, resulting in a visual distraction called "Dither Noise". This is not an issue with 3LCD projectors.

Gentle on the Eyes

3LCD projectors reproduce images that are easy on the eyes. These images will not have colour break-up (or "rainbow effect"), which may be seen with 1-Chip DLP™* projectors. The "rainbow effect" is a result of colour sequential technology which can be distracting to viewers. In short, with 3LCD projectors, you will be sure of thoroughly amazing, enjoyable images.

Smooth Motion

3LCD projectors use three separate liquid crystal panels - Red, Green and Blue - to form a continuous image containing all colours. This means that even rapid motion video will appear smooth. With 1-Chip DLP™* projectors, viewers may see multiple lines or blurry images in rapid motion video.

High Reliability

3LCD projectors use no moving parts in the light control system, which makes it highly reliable over many years of operation.

Epson claim that 9 out of 10 people prefer images from 3LCD projectors

Radius Global Market Research, a leading worldwide market research firm conducted a quantitative preference study. The preference study included side-by-side comparisons of 3LCD and 1-chip DLP projectors with similar resolution and white brightness specifications. The results show that 9 out of 10 people prefer images from 3LCD projectors, which deliver up to 3x higher Color Brightness than comparable 1-Chip DLP models. |Source|
