Bright enough for big rooms and big screens
The Epson PowerLite 2250U is a bright, feature-packed projector that can deliver brilliant, high-definition images to suit any conference room, classroom, or house of worship. Its 5000 lumens of brightness helps it overcome ambient light in most situations. And its 1920 x 1200 native resolution will help ensure that text is clear at most viewing distances.
On the back panel you'll find VGA, composite video, and two HDMI inputs to connect various sources. One HDMI input is MHL-compatible, which will let you connect your compatible smart device directly to the projector to mirror its screen. You can output the video to another projector or display with the VGA output. The 2250U also includes solid wireless security (module sold separately) for added peace of mind when using the optional wireless networking.

More details on the Epson PowerLite 2250U
3-Chip LCD Technology: The PowerLite 2250U projector 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.
Projection Lamp: The projector uses an energy-efficient 300-watt Ultra High Efficiency (UHE) lamp with a life span of approximately 5,000 hours in the Normal Mode. In the ECO mode, the life span is increased to approximately 10,000 hours. The lamp (Part # V13H010L95) and air filter (Part # V13H134A41 ) are the only user-serviceable parts.
- Light Optimizer: When Power Consumption is set to Normal, the lamp brightness is adjusted based on the projected image; you can set this option for each color mode
- Fan Cooled: The projection lamp is kept cool by a fan. The fan noise level is 39dB in Normal mode and 29dB 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.
Projection Lens: The PowerLite 2250U features a F1.50-2.0 lens with a focal length of 23.0mm to 38.4mm. It has a manual focus and a manual zoom ratio of 1.0 to 1.6. You can use the manual Zoom Ring (1.0-1.6x) to resize the image to fit your projection screen. You can use the Focus Ring to correct the image focus on screen. You can also use the projector's Focus Help feature to help you focus the image.
Projection Image & Distance: The PowerLite 2250U projector can produce an image that is adjustable from 50" to 300" (measured diagonally). 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 4.8' to 48.5'. The projection distance can be determined from this chart -
|Screen Or Image Size (16:10 Aspect Ratio)||Projection Distance (wide to tele)|
|50"||58" to 96"|
|80"||93" to 154"|
|100"||116" to 193"|
|150"||175" to 290"|
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
- Screen Fit: You can use the projector's Screen Fit feature to automatically correct the shape and position of images to fit on your screen (
- Keystone Correction: Vertical (+/-30 deg) and Horizontal (+/-30deg) Keystone Correction can correct the shape of the image, if it is not rectangular.
- Quick Corner: 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.
Full HD 1080p: The Epson PowerLite 2250U 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.Full HD 1080p support delivers true-to-life images
High Brightness & Contrast: Offering high Color Brightness, Epson 3LCD projector ensures vivid images. With 5,000 lumens of color brightness and 5,000 lumens of white brightness, the 2250U shines bright in a variety of lighting conditions. The white light output is measured using ISO 21118, a more rigid standard than the ANSI lumens rating used by many competitors. And, it features great contrast (15,000:1) for impactful presentations.
