The Home Cinema 3200 is rated for 2900 lumens and like most Epson projectors, in its brightest mode, the projector delivered more than the manufacturer’s claimed brightness.
I measured its brightest mode, Dynamic, at full wide angle – this is with the iris wide open, so the most amount of light gets through. For the rest of the modes, I measured them at mid-zoom, so the iris is closed halfway. I took 3-4 readings about 15-20% out from the center of the lens.
Epson Home Cinema 3200 Brightness (wide zoom Dynamic mode): 2896 Lumens
The Dynamic mode measured 2,896 lumens at in wide zoom while still delivering good out the box picture quality. In High lamp mode, all the HC3200 picture modes measured within a couple hundred lumens of each other.
