Overview: The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010 is a Full HD
1080p LCD projector with 3D capability. With the Home Cinema 5010, you can
project movies, videos, games, slideshows, and presentations up to 300"
Note: The Home Cinema 5010 does not include 3D Active
Shutter glasses, required for viewing 3D content.
C²Fine 3LCD, 3-chip Technology: The Home Cinema 5010
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
projectors. The projector's 1080Perfect video processing gives you more
film-like images, free of noise or artifacts.
3D Mode: Epson's advanced Bright 3D Drive technology
enhances the brightness give you theater-quality 3D images in your home. To view 3D content, you must first connect a
3D-compatible video device to one of the HDMI ports. You will also need Epson
M-3Di Active Shutter 3D glasses (item # 278AS3DG) for each viewer. (No 3D
glasses are included with the projector.) 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 viewing
2D-to-3D Conversion: The projector's 2D-to-3D Conversion
setting will transform 2D images to 3D content.
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 # V13H010L69) and air
filter (Part # V13H134A39) are the only user-serviceable parts. When not in use, the lens is protected
from dust and damage by an automatic powered retracting lens cap.
Fan Cooled: The projection lamp is kept cool by a fan. The
fan noise level is 32dB in Normal mode and 22dB 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 2400 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. The
projector is capable of a dynamic contrast ratio up to 200,000:1.
Native Resolution: The PowerLite Home Cinema 5010 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 5010 features an F2.0-3.17 Fujinon lens with a focal length of
22.5mm to 42.7mm. It has a manual focus and a manual zoom ratio of 1.0 to 2.1.
If the projected image is not centered in front of the screen, you can correct
the position of the image using the vertical and horizontal lens shift dials on
the top of the projector. The vertical position can be adjusted by up to 96% of
the height of the screen, while the horizontal position can be adjusted by up to
47% of the width of the screen. The vertical keystone buttons, located on the
side of the projector, can correct the shape of the image, if it is not
rectangular. The unit does not have a horizontal keystone adjustment.
