Epson 3LCD Projectors are a Top Choice

by CCSSouthwest on November 19, 2014

Did you know, Epson is the top selling projector brand in the U.S and worldwide? With a heavy focus on research and development, Epson continues to be a leader in pioneering innovative technology of the highest quality. It is no surprise that a nationwide study by Radius Global Market Research found that 9 out of 10 people prefer images from Epson 3LCD projectors.

epsonEpson 3LCD projectors are based on a technology that utilizes 3 chips to send light continuously (not sequentially). So, all colors are available all the time. The result is 3x higher color brightness, system efficiency and true-to-life color accuracy. This technology also provides cost saving advantages due to low wattage lamps, 25% lower energy consumption and dust reducing filters that protect your investment.

CCS Presentation Systems is proud to partner with Epson. We specialize in high quality projection, display and leading edge technology solutions to meet the needs of any business or educational entities. Our audio-visual specialists can help with product, design, installation and service. Contact our southwest headquarters in Scottsdale at 480-348-0100 to speak with one of our specialists and visit our website today.


Why Do I Need Projector Maintenance?

by CCSSouthwest on November 12, 2014

The infrared energy released by your projector’s lamp deteriorates the optical coatings that ultimately create the colors in your projected image. Dust in the light path has a direct effect on the image color, as well as the indirect effect of retaining heat against the LCD’s and polarizers, thereby shortening their life.

blog2 Projector MainA dirty projector first shows itself as a magenta colored cloudiness in what should be a white background. If your lens has enough focal range, you can shift the focus away from the front of the prism (your projected image) back to the surface of the LCD’s themselves. The actual particles of dust can then be seen, and their location can be determined by their color. Magenta specs are contamination on the green LCD, yellow ones are on the blue LCD, and blue ones are on the red LCD. The magenta color shows most to the human eye due to our eyes being most sensitive to green light.

Effective cleaning of these surfaces cannot be done without opening the projector, and should not be done by persons who are not trained to handle them, as they are easily damaged.

The Effects of Dust and Other Contaminants in the Projector:

  • The intake filter; Dust reduces the airflow and defeats the cooling fan, speeding the aging of optical components.
  • The LCD’s and Polarizers; Contaminants block light in a single color channel, changing the color output by the projector, resulting mostly in magenta clouds in your image. Long term exposure to these optical elements will result in permanent discoloration that is usually too expensive to repair.
  • The rear of the projection lens; Dust accumulating here will result in a brownish-yellow hue in the projected image.
  • The remainder of the projector light path, including the lamp itself; As dust builds up in these areas, overall brightness and image contrast ratio are reduced, producing a dull unfocused looking image.
