Amazing color and white light output
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL delivers 8000 lumens of color light output and 8000 lumens of white light output1 for true-to-life, vibrant, colorful images, even in ambient light. For today’s colorrich multimedia content, users want a projector that delivers both optimum white and color imagery. That’s why the industry has developed a new metric called Color Light Output.
3LCD technology — for quality and color that’s beyond amazing
Innovative technology with proven reliability
- 3 chips for full-time, vibrant color
- 25% less electricity required per lumen of brightness when compared to 1-chip DLP projectors4
- Over 20 years of road-tested reliability built into every projector
Always look for Color Light Output when choosing a projector
- For optimum image quality and performance, the projector you choose should offer equal levels of color and white light output
- When the two measurements are not identical, images do not look balanced
- Whites may be brighter, making the colored areas look dull and flat
- The combination of color richness (color light output) and brightness (white light output) is as critical as the combination of bass and treble would be when purchasing audio equipment
C2FineTM technology delivers blacker blacks
C2Fine technology offers smooth, uniform images with exceptional contrast for better image quality. Based on this new phase-compensation technology, light leakage is eliminated, allowing for the reproduction of blacker blacks. C2Fine technology is combined with an auto iris, which allows for a contrast ratio up to 5000:1.
Award-winning Faroudja DCDi® Cinema for advanced video
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL features a Faroudja DCDi Cinema chipset, a video enhancement technology that produces exceptional image quality without introducing artifacts. Faroudja DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) was developed to eliminate jagging, using a unique algorithm. This technology, in combination with decoding, deinterlacing and enhancement technologies, won an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2001.
Enhanced Super-resolution technology for sharp, dramatically rich images
- Makes standard- and high-definition content come alive via its mixed color separation techniques and imaging simulation
- Delivers crisp, clear images with super high-quality resolution
- Sharpens blurry images that have been enlarged by a general upscaling process
6-axis color adjustment
For special projection material such as high-quality photographs or artwork, users can adjust the hue, saturation and brightness for six colors: RGBCMY (Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow).
Edge blending makes it easy to use multi-screen projection and achieve a seamless panoramic image, in which color and brightness match up.
EPSON Multi-PC Collaboration utility allows you to display four individual PC screens simultaneously over the network (wired or wireless), with another 12 users connected to the same projector on Standby mode. You can drag and drop participants into or out of one of the four quadrants. This feature is a great tool for meetings or classroom projects where multiple users want to present and compare their screens. You can also connect up to four remote projectors at the same time and show the same multi-screen image — another great tool for remote meeting setups.
Split Screen2 allows you to display content from two inputs simultaneously, side by side, on a single screen with the following features:
- Three layout options, as shown below
- Video and presentation materials displayed simultaneously
- The ability to run video on both screens
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL can be rotated 360 degrees in any direction for off-axis positioning flexibility. As a result, it can be used for a wide range of applications, such as projecting on the ceiling or floor, or as part of a rear-projection system. EPSON technology keeps the projector running without compromising performance or causing overheating.
DICOM simulation mode
DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) is a standard for handling, storing, printing and transmitting medical imaging information. The projector’s DICOM Simulation Mode enables users to reproduce images with an advanced grayscale level that simulates DICOM Part 14. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes3.
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL offers easy HDMI, BNC and LAN connectivity for integration with virtually any system.
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL features a Memory function, which allows you to store up to 10 settings in the projector’s internal memory. This saves installers valuable time in setting up the projector for various venues and events.
Using the convenient Schedule function, you can easily control the projector at non-networked venues. The embedded “clock” inside the projector enables it to do scheduled tasks without having the “network stand-by mode” on. This saves energy, as the projector can be turned off when not in use.
Protect your investment — long-life electrostatic air filter
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL filter is designed to protect the optical engine, lamp and electronics from small dust particles that can enter any projector. It has a recommended 10,000-hour filter cleaning schedule.6 The EPSON electrostatic filter captures particles as small as three microns, due in part to its pleated, expanded design. With one air intake and one exhaust path, the PowerLite Pro Z8150NL offers an efficient airflow system for optimum cooling of key components and a reduction in dust-related problems. Additionally, it has the capability to send an e-mail notification out through the EPSON Monitor utility when an increase in temperature is detected, due to clogging.
Easy Management® with EPSON Monitor
EasyMP® technology makes it easy to monitor and control all networked EPSON projectors. You can use the utility while performing help desk services and proactively manage your projector assets. Remotely power down your projector(s) to extend the lamp life and produce energy savings. The utility also allows you to set up e-mail notifications, verify and change internal settings, and more. The utility is packaged on a CD with the projector and can be used with a PC to check the status of a projector. It is also available online at epson.com
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL boasts a dual lamp system (two 340 W lamps) that eliminates the risk of interruption. If one lamp were to fail, operation would continue, using the other lamp. And, replacements are made easy with tool-free and unobstructed access to the rear control panel.
Offering convenient access to the lamps and filter, the PowerLite Pro Z8150NL makes maintenance easier than ever, even if the projector is ceiling mounted. The lamp cover is located on the rear side panel and there are no screws, so the lid can be removed without any special tools. In addition to easy lamp and filter replacements, the PowerLite Pro Z8150NL includes features that make it easy to monitor and control. With EasyMP Monitor, users can access advanced status functions over the LAN network.
Quiet, reliable liquid cooling system
Epson’s innovative system uses liquid to cool the LCD chips directly. The liquid absorbs the heat and is then cooled by a peltier device, which is then cooled by a fan, thereby keeping the overall optical engine cool. This system design promotes greater reliability and enables stable operation in temperatures up to 122 °F (50 °C). In addition, it offers quiet, unobtrusive operation and allows for off-axis installation orientations.
EPSON lens shift technology enables outstanding installation flexibility with an incredible range of up to + or – 56% on the vertical axis and up to + or – 6% on the horizontal axis. Users can operate the lens shift functions using the remote control, the projector control panel, or control commands.
Using arc correction, you can adjust each side of a projected image in an arch or barrel-shaped way, making it easier than ever to get a perfectly rectangular image.
Centered lens design
Featuring a centered lens design, the PowerLite Pro Z8150NL makes installation easy to plan. Positioning the ceiling mount, screen and projector can be performed individually and independent of one another.
Six powered lens options
For great flexibility, the PowerLite Pro Z8150NL offers a total of six lenses including short, wide, and rear, along with mid- to long-throw lenses that allow users to choose the motorized lens most suited for their environment. A quick release lever allows for a fast, easy lens exchange. (Lens not included)
The PowerLite Pro Z8150NL also includes six test patterns with precise setup features, including detecting distortion, checking linearity, color reproduction and bleeding, and tone production check.
