Two Sony Projectors for Classrooms and Boardrooms Launched

The VPL-SW535 and VPL-SX535 Projectors

APAC – Sony is adding ultra-short throw capabilities to its line of business projectors with two new models perfect for education, training and corporate applications, as well as a range of other commercial uses.

The new models are the VPL-SW535 projector (WXGA resolution) and the VPL-SX535 projector (XGA resolution), with each delivering 3,000 lumens – which is among the brightest levels offered by products in the ultra short-throw category.

Designed to add flexibility to classroom and business presentations, the new models can deliver a large clear image from a very short distance. For example, an 80-inch image can be achieved with the projector located a very short distance from the screen (19 inches for the VPL-SW535; 23 inches for the VPL-SX535, the distance is defined as the distance between the center of the projection window and the screen).

The new models are designed for optimum energy efficiency, producing 3,000 lumens of colour light output with just 290W power consumption for the SW535 model and 310W for SX535 model. This is achieved with the use of Sony’s energy efficient Bright Era LCD panels, capable of delivering brilliant pictures for a more dynamic visual experience. Also, in the event the projectors are left powered while not in use, they automatically detect no change of signal input and will dim the lamp as low as about 30 percent of original brightness to significantly reduce energy consumption.

Additionally, the expected lamp and filter maintenance time for each model can reach up to 6,000 hours depending on lamp mode selected and operating environment. These new models are the industry’s first ultra short throw projectors equipped with optical zoom and lens shift capability. This allows users to greatly reduce the time and hassle needed to fine-tune image position without physically moving the projector and sacrificing image quality (x1.05 zoom, V:+/-4.6% H:+/-3.4% shift. V:+/-4.4% H:+/- 2.7% shift for SW535).

The projectors ship with Sony’s original wall mount, which is capable of adjusting pitch, roll, and yaw of the projector.

The VPL-SW535 and VPL-SX535 will be available in Asia Pacific from January 2012.
