The global health crisis has changed the way we live. Amid the shifting ‘new normal,’ most communities are still under quarantine and lockdowns. People are still largely advised just to stay at home, which means a quick trip to places like cinemas will most likely be limited if not restricted.
The good news is that you can still enjoy a great movie experience with loved-ones at the comfort of your home, thanks to projectors that come in different sizes and types and are designed with versatile features that help bring the cinema viewing experience at home.
The Power of 3LCD Technology
Most of today’s home projectors operate using 3LCD Technology which utilizes liquid crystal panels to deliver vibrant, true-to-life, and consistent images for the writer.
Epson 3LCD laser projectors are equipped with three separate liquid crystal panels that are made to process each primary color (red, green, and blue) continuously. That means even a rapid-motion video is delivered smoothly.
On the other hand; single-chip projectors deliver a rapid sequence of red, green, and blue; which translated by the viewer’s eye as an impression of a full-color image. This technology doesn’t work for some viewers, who see multiple lines or blurry images also known as the “rainbow effect,” especially when watching rapid motion videos.
The Smallest of its Kind
If you’re looking for the best home projector for your current stay-at-home set up, then the world’s smallest 3LCD laser projectors, the Epson EF-100 Series, might just be your cup of tea.
These projectors are able to recreate brilliant images anywhere within your home. With a projection size of up to 150 inches, the portable EF-100 series combines the large-screen viewing experience with flexibility and usability.
A game-changer in home projection, these models can be installed to project visuals at any angle with 360-degree flexibility, opening possibilities for home entertainment by watching movies projected on the living room wall, or even on the ceiling when viewed from the bed.
Light and Compact yet Powerful
Epson EF-100 projectors are also compact and light, measuring only 23cm and weighing in at 2.7kg, which makes them easy to carry and place anywhere at home. These can project up to 150 inches in size and provide endless possibilities for projection.
Projecting at 2,000 lumens with a high contrast ratio, film enthusiasts will experience rich and vivid images with the EF-100 series. There’s also no need to turn the lights off or close the windows because the projector’s laser light source creates bright and vibrant images, even in daylight.
User-friendly and Low Maintenance
With laser as its light source, the EF-100 series is maintenance-free, more energy-efficient, and has a longer lifespan versus lamp projectors. Lasers only need replacing after 20,000 hours of usage, which is longer than projection lamps. To add, mercury-free lasers do not require specialist handling or end-of-life disposal.
Streaming and accessing content from phones, tablets, DVD players, game consoles and laptops, is also made easy with a built-in HDMI port.
The user-friendly interface is designed for users who are just starting to build a theatre system at home. Setting up is a breeze with features like keystone correction, which helps users to easily adjust the shape of an image that is unevenly rectangular on the sides.
With Epson’s EF-100 series, you can now transform any part of your home into a theatre.
