As a company heavily focused on research & development, Epson introduced many technology "firsts" to the market. Epson pioneered the projection industry with the invention of the world's first optical projection engine, known as 3LCD technology. Additionally, Epson introduced the world's first LCD projector for video imaging in 1989, paving the way for the projection market.
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 - red, green, and blue, continuously. Unlike single-chip technology that delivers color sequentially, you get full-time color. The result is vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD's true-to-life color.
