Sony Expands its VPL-E Series with the VPL-EW130 3LCD Projector
Known for its high performance and eco-friendly features while embodying great balance between quality and cost, the VPL-E series of projectors has now expanded to include the VPL-EW130 3LCD projector in native Wide XGA (WXGA) resolution (1280 x 800). With a high brightness of 3000 lumens, the new projector is ideal for education and office use.
Unlike its fellow projectors in the VPL-E Series such as the existing VPL-EX120, VPL-EX145 and the VPL-EX175, the VPL-EW130 can present images in native WXGA resolution on a widescreen, allowing projection in a wider display range compared to XGA resolution.
The VPL-EW130 features ‘ECO’ mode, where users can switch to ‘ECO’ setting easily to save precious energy. In standby mode, the projectors consume less than 1W of power. If there is no signal input for 10 minutes, the projector lamp will automatically turn off – saving ample power and energy expenses.
Incorporating Sony’s advanced lamp-control technology, the VPL-EW130 delivers extremely long lamp replacement time of 6,000 hours in low mode. The lamp and filter synchronization maintenance is an intelligent feature which prompts users - within approximately 6000 hours - when users can replace both the lamp and clean the filter at the same time.
The projector incorporates Sony's advanced BrightEra technology which delivers substantially brighter pictures, higher contrast and improved colour rendition. It features 3LCD projection system, using three LCD panels where images projected are bright, natural and gentle on the eyes.
It also runs very cool due to the design and engineering ingenuity of the exhausts. With the exhausts built at the front of the projector, users can run a smooth presentation without interruption by hot air and noise.
Equipped with 1.3x manual zoom lens for flexible installation, there is no need to change ceiling mount positions.
The built-in HDMI terminal promotes convenient connectivity for transmitting high quality images as well as music via the 1W speaker.
The VPL-EW130 will be available from May 2011 in Asia Pacific.
