- Energy Efficient Light Engine: 3LCD projector is more energy efficient because its uses available lamp light to create stunning images. Projecting on average 25% more brightness per watt of electricity, compared to other (projector) technologies.
The 3LCD technology is now marketed by an affiliated organization named after the technology itself: “3LCD”. It is a consortium of projector manufacturers that have licensed 3LCD technology to be used in their products. Today, 3LCD technology has been adopted by 40 different projector brands worldwide.
