Overview: The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 is a Full HD
1080p LCD projector with 3D capability. With the Home Cinema 3010, you can
project movies, videos, games, slideshows, and presentations up to 300"
(diagonally). It includes two pairs of active shutter 3D glasses, and a wireless
remote control. The Home Cinema 3010 also has built-in 10-watt stereo speakers.
C²Fine 3LCD, 3-chip Technology: The Home Cinema 3010
features C²Fine 3LCD, 3-chip technology to give you rich, vibrant images for
enjoying spectacular movies, games, and sporting events in your home, or to
deliver sizzling business presentations at the office. This technology requires
25% less electricity per lumen of brightness when compared to 1-chip DLP
3D Mode: To view 3D content, you must first connect a
3D-compatible video device to one of the HDMI ports. Two pairs of Epson M-3Di
active shutter glasses (item # 278AS3DG) are included. An external 3D IR emitter
(# V12H484001) is available from the manufacturer if you cannot view the 3D
image normally, or if the projector is located more than 16-1/2 feet from the
Projection Lamp: The projector uses an energy-efficient
E-TORL 230-watt Ultra High Efficiency (UHE) lamp with a life span of
approximately 4000 hours in the Normal Mode. In the ECO mode, the life span is
increased to approximately 5000 hours. The lamp (Part # V12H010L68) and air
filter (Part # V13H134A38) are the only user-serviceable parts.
Fan Cooled: The projection lamp is kept cool by a fan. The
fan noise level is 32dB in Normal mode and 24dB in ECO mode. If the projector is
to be used at an altitude above 4921 feet (1500 meters), the High Altitude Mode
should be turned on so the fan can properly cool the projector at the high
altitude air pressure.
Light Output: In the normal mode, the PowerLite Home Cinema
lumens of white light and 2200 lumens of color light for bright, balanced
colorful images. The white light output is measured using ISO 21118, a more
rigid standard than the ANSI lumens rating used by many competitors. Light
output in the ECO mode is 1000 lumens. The
projector is capable of a dynamic contrast ratio up to 40,000:1 (auto iris on)
in 2D mode, and up to 1600:1 in 3D.
Native Resolution: The PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 has a
native resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080; 16:9 aspect ratio). The total
number of pixels is 2,073,600 dots (1920 x 1080) x 3. You can resize the picture by
changing the aspect ratio to 4:3 or 16:10.
Lens: The Home Cinema 3010 features a F1.51-1.99 lens with a focal length of
18.2mm to 29.2mm. It has a manual focus and a manual zoom ratio of 1.0 to 1.6. The
projector automatically compensates for vertical keystone distortion (+/- 30°)
when it is tilted upward or downward. Manual horizontal keystone adjustments
(+/- 30°) can be made using the top-mounted slide control. The
projector does not have a lens shift feature.
Multiple Sources: The PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 has inputs for multiple sources
to give you lots of choices. For connecting to your video equipment, the unit
features two HDMI (Ver.1.4) inputs, a component video input, and a composite
video input. You can also connect your computer to the projector via the VGA
input (D-Sub 15-pin). The unit also has a stereo RCA audio input.
Note: Two cable clips are included to help secure the
HDMI cables to the projector.
HDMI Link: When you connect HDMI CEC-compatible devices,
such as a receiver or DVD player, to the projector via HDMI cables, you can
control them using the HDMI-Link control buttons on the projector's remote
control. You can register the devices you want to operate in the HDMI Link
section of the projector's menu.
Input Signals: The projector will accept the following input
- Composite: NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, M-PAL, N-PAL, PAL60, SECAM
- Component: 480i, 576i, 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p
- External Source: Blu-ray, HD-DVD, DVD (Region Code 1)
USB Storage Devices: Using the projector's Type A USB port
on the rear panel, you can connect a USB storage device, such as a USB flash
drive or digital camera and project still images (JPEG, BMP, GIF, and PNG). The
device must be USB Mass Storage Class compatible, and the images formatted in
FAT or FAT32. The images can be displayed in a "contact sheet" fashion to help
you locate specific photos, in full-screen manually one at a time, or
automatically in a slide show with custom settings.
Color Modes: The PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 offers six color modes
to optimize viewing for different environments and image content. The Color Mode
adjusts the brightness, contrast, and color for the best possible picture. A
different color mode can be selected for each input source. You can select from the following
- Auto: automatically adjusts to the brightness of your
- Dynamic: for projecting the brightest picture available
- Living Room: for watching television programs during
- Cinema: for viewing movies in a dimly lit room
- 3D Dynamic: for projecting the brightest 3D picture
available (3D mode only)
- 3D Cinema: for viewing 3D movies in a dimly lit room
(3D mode only)
Advanced Color Adjustments: You can adjust the gamma and
individual RGBCMY color tones using the remote control. There are five gamma
settings to choose from (2.0 to 2.4), or you can customize your own settings
from your image or a displayed graph. You can also individually adjust the hue,
saturation, and brightness for each of the red (R), green (G), blue (B), cyan
(C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y) components.
Auto Iris: The Auto Iris system constantly controls the
light output based on the gamma and black/white levels of the projected content
to give you perfectly adjusted images and deepest blacks. Using the remote, you
can select either Normal or High Speed to indicate how quickly you would like
the projector to respond to changes in the brightness of the image.
Adjustable Image Size: The PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 projector can produce
an image that is adjustable between 30" and 300" (measured diagonally).
Lens Projection Distance: The projector's adjustable lens provides a wide
range of placement possibilities for a given screen size. The projection distance
(distance from lens to screen) range is 2.85' to 47.57'. The distance for several screen sizes
at 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios are
Projection Distance (in feet)

Split Screen Mode: The Home Cinema 3010's Split Screen mode
allows you to simultaneously project two images from different image sources
next to each other. The side-by-side images can be equal size or one larger than
the other. You can also choose which audio source you want to hear between the
displayed images. The Split Screen mode is not available in 3D mode, or when USB
is the active display source.
Sleep Mode: The projector turns off automatically when no
video signal is received for a preset amount of time. You can set the sleep mode
to 5, 10, or 30 minutes.
Remote Control: In addition to the control panel, the
projector can be controlled by the supplied wireless remote control, which has a
range of approximately 32 feet. The projector has infrared receivers on the front and rear
to give you control from most anywhere in the room. An RS-232C port is included
for connecting the projector to a 3rd party A/V controller or automation system.
Mounting Options: The PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 can be placed on a
tabletop or inverted and mounted on the ceiling. It can be used for front or
rear projection. For tabletop use, you can adjust the image position by raising
or lowering the front feet. For ceiling mounting, you will need an optional
projector ceiling mount. Four 4mm threaded screw holes are provided on the
bottom for a ceiling mount. A commercially-available Kensington security lock
can be attached to the unit to prevent theft when installed in a public
Warranty and Extra Care Home Service: The projector is covered by a
