Epson MG-850HD

This revolution in home entertainment is the first 3LCD HD-Ready home cinema projector with an iPod docking station. No need to download apps or clip on attachments; simply connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad*1 to the docking station to watch your chosen content.

Big screen entertainment: The iPod docking station at the rear of the projector allows you to watch and share music, videos and photos as well as TV shows and feature length films previously downloaded from iTunes. With its wide range of connectivity options, you can also watch a whole host of different content from Blu-ray and DVD players, PCs, TV set-top boxes and games consoles.

High quality projections: Harnessing Epson’s latest technology, this projector delivers equally high White and Colour Light Output of 2,800 lumens and a high contrast ratio of 3,000:1, meaning high quality images are projected, even in daylight. Epson’s 3LCD technology ensures that images are clear, bright and easy on the eyes.

Easy set-up: The MG-850HD is quick and simple to set up, thanks to its manual horizontal slider and automatic vertical keystone correction. Whatever the angle of the actual projector, you can easily align the projection to ensure a straight and correct image, which is great for settling down to watch a film quickly. The plug and play functionality means you can set up and use this entertainment system quickly and easily with the minimum of fuss and, with the help of the retractable handle, you can easily take the big screen experience with you wherever you go.

User-friendly controls: Epson’s specially designed menu helps guide you with ease to your chosen content the moment you connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad to this projector. Large, easily recognisable symbols display where you are in the menu tree (Video, Music, Photos and Setup) and are accompanied by a list of options, which makes choosing content to play as easy as possible. The unique design of the projector’s remote control has a simple button layout and a discreet backlight that allows you to easily operate in the dark without disturbing others.

Not just a projector: The MG-850HD offers the ability to play music and other audio without switching the lamp on. This not only lengthens the lifespan of the lamp, but also means you can use this projector as a normal docking station with its embedded 10W speakers.

    If the projector is suspended from a ceiling or wall mount and installed in an environment with heavy oil smoke or places where oils or chemicals are volatilized, or where aroma oils are frequently burned, it can make certain parts of our products susceptible to a material degradation which over time could break and cause the projector to drop from the ceiling.

    If you are concerned about the environment in which your projector is installed, or if you have any other questions, please contact our support department and they can provide additional assistance.
