3LCD was the leader in the front projection market among the Mainstream and High-End Industry Segment

3LCD, a marketing organization run by Seiko Epson, announced today its continued U.S. market share leadership. 3LCD is the world’s #1 projection technology and a trusted partner for many of the largest consumer electronics brands.

According to the most recent data from PMA Research (PMA), 3LCD was the leader in the front projection market among the Mainstream and High-End Industry Segment as defined by PMA[1]. 3LCD outpaced the nearest competing technology by 19 points in the United States.

The steady market growth can be attributed in part to new products and 3LCD’s ability to deliver bright color, amazing detail, road-tested reliability, and overall performance.

3LCD’s innovative three-chip design delivers vibrant images with up to three times higher Color Brightness and much wider Color Gamuts – up to three times wider for business and education projectors. Color Gamut is the range of color that a projector is capable of reproducing. 3LCD projectors can display colors much more accurately.

Since its introduction in 1988, 3LCD has consistently contributed to advancements in image quality. With more than a quarter-century of experience in the projection industry, 3LCD has introduced hundreds of thousands of projectors and delivers dependable projection technology with innovative features. 3LCD powers the majority of all education, business, and home theater projectors.

3LCD offers a number of competitive technology advantages, including:

  • 3-Chip Optical Engine: All 3LCD projectors use a 3-chip optical engine to deliver incredibly bright and vivid colors.
  • Brighter Colors: 3LCD delivers up to 3 times higher Color Brightness[2]
  • Wider Color Gamut: 3LCD projectors have up to 3 times wider Color Gamut[3]
