Bright output - 3,000 lumens white and colour light output and 3 LCD technology
Experience high quality images - WUXGA, full HD resolution and 15000:1 contrast ratio
Quick and easy to set-up - automatic vertical keystone correction
2 x HDMI with MHL support via HDMI 1, lamp life up to 10,000 hours in economy mode
View two sources at once with built-in split-screen function
The EH-TW6100 is the ideal projector for film enthusiasts, gamers and sports fans who want to watch Full HD content on the big screen in the comfort of their own home. Boasting highend features usually found in top-of-the-range models, the projector offers high definition 2D and 3D viewing that's easy to set up and use.
Epson’s 3LCD technology
The EH-TW6100 delivers a 40,000:1 contrast ratio and is enhanced by Epson’s 3LCD technology to provide superb quality images. An equally high White and Colour Light Output of up to 2,300 lumens means you can watch content during the day, without sitting in the dark.
With five different colour modes and an auto-colour optimiser, you can enjoy your content rather than adjusting the menu settings. You can easily align projections with horizontal and vertical keystone correction to ensure a straight and correct image, and also use the split-screen function to watch two sources at the same time.
Embedded 10W speakers
The front facing ventilation system with low-noise fan means you are not subjected to distracting, uncomfortable hot air while watching content. The two embedded 10W speakers support content, while photos of past holidays and outings can be easily displayed using the slideshow function.
3D content is noticeably bright thanks to Epson’s luminance enhancement technology. A simple press of a button converts 2D high definition films and video games into 3D, so you can experience even more 3D content. Thanks to the 3D depth adjustment function, depth perception and image quality is much more enhanced than previous Epson 3D projectors. Featuring a pair of lightweight, rechargeable Radio Frequency (RF) active shutter 3D glasses*2, included with the projector, you can enjoy content without interference. You can keep these industry standard glasses for future upgrades, and use them with other home projector and TV manufacturers.
Digital Projector Colour Light Output (CLO)
Epson had a bright idea -- measure the the colour light output (CLO) instead of just the white. High CLO means colours are up to 3 times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors, meaning you don’t need to worry about your presentation displaying dark, dull images -- with an Epson projector you’ll get maximum impact.
Colour is an important part of image quality, which is why a projector’s colour brightness, given in lumens, is important to know. If it’s not as high as the white brightness, images are duller and colours may appear washed out. Measure the brightness of the red, green and blue light and the resulting value is your Colour Brightness or Colour Light Output (CLO).
Digital projectors produce colour in different ways, resulting in big differences in colour brightness. Many manufacturers only quote the brightness in lumens of their projectors’ white light. This just shows how bright a projector is when showing a plain white image; it doesn’t give the full picture.
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.

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.
