About the Epson EpiqVision™ Mini EF11

Compact and versatile

I've seen a number of projectors labeled "portable," but very few can be carried around in one hand like Epson's new Mini EF11. Their previous compact model was nearly twice the size of this one. But Epson has managed to fit some premium technology into this clean, compact design, including their MicroLaser Array and a trio of high-definition LCD imaging chips. That means you can project a bright, colorful 1080p picture almost anywhere you can run a power cord.

Simple connections

There's a single HDMI input for connecting your source, like a Blu-ray player or a laptop. Or, simply connect a streaming stick and use the adjacent USB port to power it. That port can also be used to display photos from a connected camera or storage device.

The EF11 has a built-in two-way speaker, but if you want a little more, use the minijack audio output to connect to headphones or a pair of powered speakers.

    Features

    MicroLaser Array Projection Technology: The Epson EpiqVision EF-11 utilizes a unique multi-array laser diode technology that produces an exceptional level of brightness, while significantly enhancing black density. Based on this unique Epson MicroLaser Array Technology, the projector is capable of producing an incredibly bright and colorful image up to 150" on virtually any wall or dedicated screen. The Epson EF-11 mini-laser projector has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080.

    • With its long-lasting maintenance-free laser light source, there is no need for frequent projector lamp changes for the lifespan of the projector. The laser light source can last up to 20,000 hours or everyday for ten years (based on watching content for five hours every day with the projector in Eco mode).
    • Do not look into the lens during projection. Also, do not look into the lens using optical devices, such as a magnifying glass or telescope. This could cause visual impairment. When turning on the projector at a distance using the remote control, make sure no one is looking into the lens.

    3-Chip LCD Technology: The EF-11 mini-laser projector also incorporates Epson's 3-chip LCD technology for amazing color, incredible detail and solid reliability. 3LCD's 3-chip architecture dedicates an entire chip to process each primary color - red, green, and blue, continuously. Unlike single-chip technology that delivers color sequentially, you get full-time color. The result is vibrant, realistic images and video all delivered with 3LCD's true-to-life color.

    • True-to-Life Colors: 3LCD delivers up to 3x brighter colors in comparison with 1-chip DLP projectors. Color Brightness (Color Light Output) measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4. Color Brightness will vary depending on usage conditions. Additionally, 3LCD projectors have up to 3x Wider Color Gamut than 1-chip DLP projectors. With its 3-chip design, 3LCD delivers clear and vibrant images that are true-to-life. In contrast to 3-chip 3LCD projectors, 1-chip DLP projectors use a rotating color wheel that spins at a rapid speed, only displaying colors sequentially, which can result in color break-up or the "rainbow effect".
    • Greater Detail & Contrast: 3LCD projection efficiently uses light to project to the screen with no color disruption. 3LCD technology delivers sharper and brighter images with superior grayscale detail. Grayscale is the shades of gray (from black to white) required for greater image depth and detail; it allows greater variation in shadows and brings superior accuracy to color, creating a jaw-dropping, true-to-life visual experience
    • Energy Efficient: 3LCD projection technology uses light efficiently to create stunning images. In contrast to 1-chip technology, 3LCD requires 25% less electricity per lumen of brightness. 1-chip projectors use a color wheel, which leads to an inefficient design, thereby causing light loss. 3LCD does not rely on a color wheel. On average, 3LCD projectors are 25% more energy efficient.
    • Simple & Reliable Design: 3LCD systems are reliable and use a simple optical design which includes 3 chips and 1 prism. Light flows seamlessly through the system to produce brilliant on-screen colors and sharp images every time.

    High Brightness, Color, & Contrast: The projector's laser light source delivers bright and vibrant images even in daylight, with no need to turn the lights off or close the windows. Its capable of displaying high-definition content at an exceptional 1,000 lumens of brightness (for both color & white) with a high contrast ratio of 200,000:1, as well as reproduce up to 16.77 million colors with outstanding accuracy and vibrancy for an exceptionally rich and vivid picture.

    Note: Color brightness (color light output) and white brightness (white light output) will vary depending on usage conditions. Color light output measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4; white light output measured in accordance with ISO 21118.

    High-Definition Mini-Cinema Lens: The Epson EF-11 features a high-definition mini-cinema lens for exceptional image clarity and edge-to-edge focus uniformity. It features digital zoom (controllable from remote) and manual focus (controllable from projector). The Epson EF-11 mini-laser projector can produce an image that is adjustable from 30" to 150" (measured diagonally). The projection distance (distance from lens to screen) range is only 2.2' to 11'.

    Screen Or Image Size (16:9 Aspect Ratio) Projection Distance (wide to tele)
    30" 26" to 35"
    40" 35" to 47"
    50" 43" to 59"
    60" 52" to 71"
    70" 61" to 83"
    80" 70" to 95"
    90" 79" to 108"
    100" 88" to 120"
    120" 106"
    150" 133"

    Note: The distance at which you place the projector from the screen determines the approximate size of the image. The image size increases the farther the projector is from the screen.

    Image Correction: You can project an evenly rectangular image by placing the projector directly in front of the center of the screen and keeping it level. If you place the projector at an angle to the screen, or tilted up or down, or off to the side, you may need to correct the image shape for the best display quality by using Keystone Correction or Quick Corner.

    • Keystone Correction: When you turn on automatic keystone correction in the projector's Settings menu, the projector automatically corrects vertical keystone effects when you reposition the projector. You can also manually adjust the vertical and horizontal Keystone to correct the shape of the image, if it is not rectangular.
    • Quick Corner Setting: You can use the projector's Quick Corner setting to correct the shape and size of an image that is unevenly rectangular on all sides.

    Note: To provide the best possible image quality, adjust the projector's position to correct the image shape before using Keystone Correction or Quick Corner.

    HDMI 1.4 Input: The Epson EF-11 is outfitted with one HDMI 1.4 input with support for 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i video signals; as well as 2ch PCM audio.

    USB-A Port: The Espon EF-11 is equipped with a USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB MSC (mass storage class) device, such as a USB thumbdrive or HDD. Some HDD's will require an external AC power adapter. The EF-11 supports playback of audio, video, and photo files on a compatible USB MSC device. The USB device must be formatted in FAT 16 or 32. The USB-A port is not compatible with USB hubs, card-readers, Apple iOS devices, or Android devices.

    • Brightness & Contrast: You can turn on the projector's Dynamic Contrast setting to automatically optimize the image luminance. This improves the image contrast based on the brightness of the content you project. You can also manually adjust the brightness of the projector's light output.
    • Image Clarity: You can manually adjust the projector's Sharpness, Noise Reduction, and Detail Enhancement to obtain a clearer, sharper, and more detailed image.
    • Advanced Color Settings: color settings include Color Temperature, RGB Offset & Gain, Color Hue, Color Saturation, Color Brightness, and Gamma.

    Remote Control: The included IR remote provides full wireless operation of the Epson EpiqVision EF-11 laser projector. The remote control lets you operate the projector from almost anywhere in the room, up to 16.4' away. You can point it at the front or back of the projector.
