More about the EX-Series

The EX-Series deliver outstanding brightness, and also include simple set-up and flexible positioning with automatic vertical keystone and a horizontal keystone slider, as well as HDMI connectivity. In addition, Epson delivers solutions to fit any need with the EX7220 and EX6220 offering widescreen capabilities, and the EX7220 and EX5220 including wireless functionality for easy connection from a laptop.

  • 3LCD Technology: Features the latest, 3LCD, 3-chip technology to deliver amazing, true-to-life color and detail for powerful presentations; 3LCD technology provides an energy efficient light engine which uses available lamp light to create stunning images; in contrast to 1-chip DLP technology, 3LCD requires, on average, 25 percent less electricity per lumen of brightness5
  • Simple Connectivity: HDMI digital video and audio in one cable for easy setup; wireless connectivity on the EX5220 and EX7220
  • iProjection: Leveraging the Epson iProjection application, presenters can project to the EX5220 and EX7220 from most iOS Apple devices running iOS 4.2 or later and most Android devices running Android 2.3 or later

  • Keystone Correction: Squares the image even if the projector is placed off-center from the screen – all four models feature automatic vertical keystone correction and manual horizontal keystone correction provides easy and convenient operation in multiple settings
  • Lens Control: Provides easy zoom and focus
  • Positioning Flexibility: 1.2x digital zoom requires a shorter throw distance, allowing for the projection of large images in smaller rooms; a 60-inch image can be projected from a distance of approximately four feet away

Color Brightness Specification and Projector Performance

The new color brightness specification (measuring red, green and blue) published by theSociety of Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. With today’s high definition content, presenters can display content with higher quality in brighter environments. For a truly impressive image, projectors need to offer both high color brightness and high white brightness. High color brightness is important for larger screen sizes and provides flexibility for a variety of screen materials. Without sufficient color brightness, images may be muddy, soft and lose detail, even in a dark room.<
