Watching Hollywood blockbusters, playing the latest video games and cheering on your sports team will be a much more immersive experience thanks to the EH-TW6000's Full HD cinematic projections. The 40,000:1 contrast ratio is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb quality images and an equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,200 lumens this means you can watch your content during the day, without having to sit in the dark to enjoy it. The auto-colour optimiser chooses a suitable colour mode, depending on the light level in the room, which allows you to concentrate on what you're watching rather than adjusting the menu settings.
Amazingly bright Full HD 3D projections
If you want to take your cinematic experience to the next level, you can easily switch to 3D content at the press of a button. Thanks to Epson’s unique luminance enhancement technology, you'll notice immediately that 3D content is much brighter than many Full HD 3D home cinema projectors*, delivering 3D images that are comfortable to watch.
This projector is also one of the first home projectors to feature wireless Full HD 3D technology. Blu-ray players and laptops can be directly connected with the wireless connection. Alternatively, you can attach your non-wireless devices to a HDMI adapter to enjoy your chosen content without permanent installation or unsightly cables lying around the home.
This projector is quick and simple to set up, thanks to its manual horizontal slider and automatic vertical keystone correction. Whatever its angle, you can easily align the projection to ensure a straight and correct image, which is great for settling down to watch a film, starting online games quickly or making sure you don’t miss the start of important sports events.
EH-TW6000 can project two different images simultaneously via its split screen function which is perfect for in-depth multiplayer video gaming or watching two sports events at the same time. The front-facing ventilation system means you are not subjected to uncomfortable hot air while watching the screen and allows you to house the projector in bookcases and other enclosed spaces.

Why Choose a 3LCD Projector?
As the number one projector manufacturer in Europe1, Epson leads the market in the development of projector technology. Epson projectors use a 3LCD projection engine to deliver bright, clear images that are rich in detail and colour.
See double with split-screen funtion
Many other projectors use 1-chip DLP2 projector systems, which create thousands of pulses of coloured light per second. They do this by shining lamp light through red, green, blue and white3 parts of a rotating colour wheel. These light pulses are then reflected by a DMD4 device, which is on a hinge and has a tiny mirror for each pixel of the image.
High White and Colour Light Output for bright pictures
The series of rapid colour bursts is then projected onto the screen. The viewer's brain can't pick out the individual flickers – it mixes the basic colours that appear in succession in each pixel to come up with the final colour the viewer sees.
Epson's 3LCD system works differently, using a combination of dichroic mirrors to separate the white light from the projector lamp into red, green and blue light. Each of the three light colours is then passed through its own LCD panel and recombined using a prism before being projected onto the screen.
With 1–chip DLP technology, colour break–up or the 'rainbow effect' can sometimes be seen. This occurs when the eye perceives the individual colours, and is a result of the colours being projected sequentially by the colour wheel. Epson's 3LCD technology avoids this by including all three basic colours in each pixel of the projection, delivering superior Colour Light Output that's easier on the eyes.
Why choose E-TORL lamp technology?
Epson E-TORL lamps deliver exceptional brightness while using less energy. They do this by using a unique configuration of reflectors to capture light that is usually lost with other manufacturers’ lamps. This improved efficiency means that Epson E-TORL lamps are better for both budgets and the environment.
