Delivering high brightness, WUXGA resolution and advanced connectivity options, including built-in wireless projection, Epson EB-U50 multi-media projector is designed for either SME/SOHO or Education use. 

High Color Light Output
EB-U50 has 3,700lm color light output, WUXGA (16:10) resolution and 16,000:1 contrast. You can enjoy beautiful and clear images wherever you go without worrying about ambient light levels.

Brightness has long been the specification used for projector comparisons; however the old specification measured only White Light Output, rather than measuring both White Light Output and Color Light Output. The vast majority of the projectors today project color so measuring White Light Output or White Brightness alone is insufficient. Color Light Output gives the projector buyers the data they need and have been missing.

Color Light Output is measured in accordance with IDMS (Information Display Measurements Standard) 15.4 which was standardized in June, 2012 by SID, a major international organization in electronic displays.   

Longer Lamp and Filter Life
The long 10000 hours lamp and filter life saves time and money by redcuing the frequency of costly lamp and filter replacement. 

Enhanced Usability

- Auto Source Search
The projector automatically detects the input source to allow projection to automatically begin without the user having to manually switch the input.

- Auto Power On
Projection starts automatically when a signal from the computer is received while the projector is in standby. There is no need to turn on the power using the remote control or the power button on the projector itself.

- Home Screen
The home screen displays functions which are used the most frequently, including source, wireless connection status. So, they can be accessed easily and immediately.  On default setting, home screen will automatically appear when no signal is input.  When signal is input, users can move to home screen by pushing home button on control panel or remote.

Built-in Wireless Module
EB-U50 has internal wireless functionality, so it can connect wirelessly all on its own. With Wi-Fi connection, you can display images and files from your smartphone or tablet via 《Epson iProjection》application or your PC via《EasyMP Network Projection》software. This is a convenient solution for smooth and smart projection.

Multi PC Projection
EB-U50 comes with advanced features such as multi-PC projection while the projector is connected to the local wireless network via the built-in wireless LAN. The Multi PC Projection feature allows a network of up to 50 PCs to be connected via Epson's 《EasyMP Multi PC Projection》software to a single projector. The newest version of this feature allows a host PC to act as a Moderator who can then select up to 4 of these connected computers and project their screens. The addition of a Moderator helps to maintain control and prevents tampering with the projected screen.

Built-in Edge Blending
For bigger, more dynamic displays, the edge blending function allows you to seamlessly join several projections together.

Split Screen
Split Screen allows input from two separate sources to be displayed side by side on the same screen. For example, images from a document camera and an electric textbook could be projected at the same time.

Stylish Design & ECO function
The compact size of EB-U50 (364 x 87 x 248 mm) makes it easy to carry between meetings and maximizes placement possibilities in even the smallest of meeting rooms. And EB-U50 was designed to prevent anyone from being exposed to the hot exhaust even when on a narrow table. Furthermore, the long-life lamp will last up to 17,000 hours in Eco mode, which minimizes lamp replacement, and therefore reduces total cost of ownership.
