3x Brighter Colours with Epson*

Brilliant image quality requires high colour brightness (colour light output), and Epson® 3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colours than leading competitive projectors*.

One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. A projector‘s specification needs to show both high colour brightness and high white brightness. If colour brightness is lower than white brightness, images may be dark, dull and lose detail. If not be sure to ask for a projector’s colour brightness specification.

* 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.

WUXGA resolution is ideal for any application requiring full Hi-Def, including BluRay content, graphic intensive programs, educational film slides, and any application requiring exceptional detail.

State-of-the-Art FineFrame Interpolation Processing Technology

A movie is a series of still frames, shown in quick succession. Traditional movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps). However, in some cases, fast-moving objects may have moved too fast to be captured on film, so they appear to jump from one part of the screen to another. This effect is called motion judder. In order to reduce motion judder, Epson has created FineFrame interpolation technology, which looks at the frames before and after an action, and creates an interpolated frame, halfway between two existing frames. As a result, a smoother motion is perceived by the viewer.
FineFrame interpolation is most beneficial when viewing content such as action movies and sports videos, which are typically shown in High Definition at 30fps. In this case, multiple frames are interpolated and inserted each second, in order to create a more realistic viewing experience.

C2Fine Technology for Blacker Blacks

C2Fine technology offers smooth, uniform images with exceptional contrast for better image quality. Based on this new phase-compensation technology, light leakage is eliminated, allowing for the reproduction of blacker blacks. C2Fine technology is combined with an auto iris, which allows for a contrast ratio up to 5,000:1

Enhanced Super Resolution Technology for Sharp, Rich Images

Epson’s Super Resolution technology makes standard, and high definition content come alive via its mixed colour separation techniques and imaging simulation. It delivers crisp, clear images with super high-quality resolution, and sharpens blurry images that have been enlarged by a general upscaling process.

Award-winning Faroudja DCDi® Cinema for Advanced Video

The EB-Z8450WU features a Faroudja DCDi Cinema chipset, a video enhancement technology that produces exceptional image quality without introducing artefacts. Faroudja DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) was developed to eliminate jagging, using a unique algorithm. This technology, in combination with decoding, Deinterlacing and enhancement technologies, won an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

6-axis Colour Adjustment

For special projection material such as high-quality photographs or artwork, users can adjust the hue, saturation and brightness for six colours: RGBCMY (Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow).

Edge Blending

Edge blending makes it easy to use multi-screen projection and achieves a seamless panoramic image, in which colour and brightness match.

Split Screen

Split Screen allows users to display content from two inputs simultaneously, side by side, on a single screen with the option of three different layouts. This makes it possible to display video and presentation materials simultaneously, or run video on both screens.

Multi-PC Projection

Epson Multi-PC Projection allows you to display four individual PC screens simultaneously over the network (wired or wireless), with another 12 users connected to the same projector on Standby mode. You can drag and drop participants into or out of one of the four quadrants. This feature is a great tool for meetings or classroom projects where multiple users want to present and compare their screens. You can also connect up to four remote projectors at the same time and show the same multi-screen image; another great tool for remote meeting setups.

360° Projection

The EB-Z8450WU can be rotated 360° in any direction for off-axis positioning flexibility. As a result, they can be used for a wide range of applications, such as projecting on the ceiling or floor, or as part of a rear-projection system. Epson technology keeps the projector running without compromising performance or causing overheating.

DICOM Simulation Mode

DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) is a standard for handling, storing, printing and transmitting medical imaging information. The projector’s DICOM Simulation Mode enables users to reproduce images with an advanced grayscale level that simulates DICOM Part 14. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes.

Epson EasyMP

EasyMP technology makes it easy to monitor and control all networked Epson projectors. You can use the utility while performing help desk services and proactively manage your projector assets. Remotely power down your projector(s) to extend the lamp life and produce energy savings. The utility also allows you to set up email notification, verify and change internal settings, and more. The utility is packaged on a CD with the projector and can be used with a PC to check the status of a projector. It is also available online at .

Uninterrupted Operation

The EB-Z8450WU boasts a dual lamp system that eliminates the risk of interruption. If one lamp were to fail, operation would continue, using the other lamp. And replacements are made easy with tool-free and unobstructed access to the rear control panel.

Protect Your Investment – Long-Life Electrostatic Air Filter

The EB-Z8450WU filter is designed to protect the optical engine, lamp and electronics from small dust particles that can enter any projector. It has a recommended 10,000-hour filter cleaning schedule. The Epson electrostatic filter captures particles as small as three microns, due in part to its pleated, expanded design. With one air intake and one exhaust path, the EB-Z8450WU offers an efficient airflow system for optimum cooling of key components and a reduction in dust-related problems. Additionally, they have the capability to send an email notification out through the Epson monitor utility when an increase in temperature is detected, due to clogging.

Easy Maintenance

Offering convenient access to the lamps and filter, the EB-Z8450WU makes maintenance easier than ever, even if the projector is ceiling mounted. The lamp cover is located on the rear side panel and there are no screws, so the lid can be removed without any special tools.

With EasyMP Monitor, users can access advanced status functions over the LAN.

Quiet, Reliable Liquid Cooling System

Epson’s innovative system uses liquid to cool the LCD chips directly. The liquid absorbs the heat and is then cooled by a peltier device, which is then cooled by a fan, thereby keeping the overall optical engine cool. This system design promotes greater reliability and enables stable operation in temperatures up to 50°C. In addition, it offers quiet, unobtrusive operation and allows for off-axis installation orientations.

Lens Shift

Epson lens shift technology enables outstanding installation flexibility with an incredible range of up to + or – 30% on the vertical axis and up to + or – 20% on the horizontal axis. Users can operate the lens shift functions using the remote control, the projector control panel, or control commands.
