Epson PowerLite 520 Projector

XGA Conference Room Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Epson — The short-throw Epson PowerLite 520 3LCD Projector is ideal for classroom settings, rear projection, and other installations where the projector needs to be placed very close to the screen. For example, with a 28" throw distance, it will produce a 106"-diagonal image. The 3LCD imaging device features an XGA (1024 x 768) native resolution and is backed up by a lamp producing a brightness of 2700 lumens in its brightest setting. In addition to XGA, the projector can scale a range of non-native resolutions from SD (480p) up to UXGA (1600 x 1200).

  • Choose from four pre-set templates or create a custom template to project lines or grids onto whiteboards or chalkboards

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
