- 3x Brighter Colors, and reliable performance – 3LCD, 3-chip technology
One measurement of brightness is not enough – look for both high color brightness and high white brightness. The PowerLite 1221 has:
- Color Brightness: 2800 lumens (color light output)
- White Brightness: 2800 lumens (white light output)
3x Brighter Colors with Epson
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness (color light output), and Epson 3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colors than leading competitive projectors.
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.
Get consistent, true-to-life color with Epson, whether you’re projecting images with deep, dark colors or a white screen with text.
