All Epson projectors are based on 3-chip LCD technology for amazing colour, incredible detail and solid reliability. 3LCD’s 3-chip architecture dedicates an entire chip to process each primary colour – red, green and blue, continuously. Unlike single-chip technology that delivers colour sequentially, you get full-time colour. The result is vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD’s true-to-life colour.
Up to 3x Brighter with Epson Projectors*
Epson projectors use 3LCD Engines that have no colour wheel with a white segment and therefore don’t force a tradeoff between white and colour brightness.
In fact, Epson projectors have up to 3x Brighter Colours than their leading competitive 1-chip DLP projectors*. If you are looking for business and education projectors or 720p home entertainment projectors, know that choosing Epson projectors means up to 3x brighter colours. If you are looking for 1080p home entertainment projectors, you consistently get 2x and up to 3x Brighter Colours than competitor 1-chip DLP projectors*.
All Epson projectors list both White Brightness and Colour Brightness specifications, and all have high Colour Brightness.
* Compared to leading 1-chip DLP business and education projectors based on NPD data, July 2011 through June 2012. Colour brightness (colour light output) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4. Colour brightness will vary depending on usage conditions.
Wide viewing angle
Clear images can be seen from any angle with no limitations of reflective glare. Projected images also allow you to get closer to the image without straining your eyes.
Featuring native resolution of WXGA (1280 x 800), the Epson EB-600 series delivers high quality images and crisp, sharp text without any distortion.
Epson’s interactive pens are now even more responsive and easy to use. With the new dual pens, teacher and student or two students can work simultaneously using different attributes.
Epson Interactive Projectors and SMART Notebook™ Software
Select Epson interactive projectors are now available with SMART Notebook™ software. The addition of SMART software to Epson Interactive Projectors provides a significant enhancement in collaborative learning. The full SMART Notebook™ learning software solution powers inspired learning by enabling whole class and anywhere, anytime instruction.

Interactive multi projection
Install two EB-600 series projectors side by side and enjoy the benefits of a huge wall-size area to use as an extended whiteboard. Or, use the included Easy Interactive Tools (EIT) software to achieve a giant display on which you can create or annotate content.
Epson iProjection™ via optional wireless dongle

When used in conjunction with Epson Multi-PC projection plus Moderator device management software4, up to 50 users can connect to the projector simultaneously, displaying content from as many as four at a time.
