Definition: 3LCD refers to a technology used in many video projectors and some rear projection televisions that employs 3 LCD chips (one for each primary color: green, blue, and red) to produce an image.

The way 3LCD works is that single white light source is split into three colored light beams. These beams, in turn, lights up and passes through the three LCD chips, which now display a green, red, or blue image. Next, these images are combined through a prism, and then, using a lens, a full color image is projected onto a screen.
