About the Sony VPLDW120

The VPL-DX140 3200 Lumens XGA Mobile Projector has a native XGA 1024 x 768 resolution, a 2500:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of 3200 lumens. The projector features a 1.3x flexible digital zoom lens. It has a world-ready 100 to 240 V 50/60Hz power supply and it can handle NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N and SECAM video signals.

Sony's proprietary BrightEra 3LCD panels are made with inorganic materials, instead of organic materials, which make it highly resilient and will prevent yellowing or decaying of the projector's image output over time. The Sony projector has a projected lamp life of 7000 hours in economy mode, which is synchronized with the long-lasting filter so that both are replaced at the same time.

The VPL-DX140 has two convenient operational features. One is called direct power on / off and the other is called off and goes. Direct power on / off is set to activate as soon as power is supplied to the projector. The caveat here is that there is no need to go through standby mode to start the projector. Off and go allows users to turn off the power supply to the projector immediately, instead of going through a power down cycle. This allows for shutting it down and moving it quickly.

The eco-conscious features of the projector ensures low total cost of ownership through 7000 hours of lamp life, three brightness modes, auto lamp dimming, auto picture dimming and an eco gauge feature.

Sony VPLDW120 Features

  • Maximum 3200 Lumens Brightness with High, Standard and Low Modes: The VPLDX140 features three brightness modes. High for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, standard for everyday use and low for video in darkened rooms
  • 7000 Hours of Lamp Life: The driving scheme reduces gap expansion, which reduces brightness gradation. There is also a cooling system that allows uniformity in the temperature of the glass bulb. It prevents the glass from clouding
  • 3-LCD BrightEra Technology: Sony's BrightEra inorganic TFT 3-LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability
  • 1.37-1.80:1 Throw Ratio: The VPL-DW120 offers a throw ratio that accommodates the majority of installation replacements in all environments
  • Digital Zoom: With digital zoom, users can enlarge a selected area of a computer-sourced image on the screen up to four times
  • Built-In Security Measures: The projectors have a package of security measures, including password protection and physical anti-theft anchor points
  • Eco Mode Key: Users can easily select power-saving eco modes. The most energy-efficient mode is accessible though a single button-push, with further adjustments available through an easily understood menu system
  • Vertical Keystone Adjustment: The projector can correct keystone distortion by +/- 30% for perfect installation adjustment to the screen (Since this is an electronic correction, it will reduce the picture quality slightly)
  • 22 Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Thai, Arabic, Turkish, Polish, Vietnamese, Farsi, Finnish, Indonesian, Hungarian
  • Filter Replacement: The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance
  • Picture Freeze Function: Picture freeze is useful during presentations where users need to look at other material on their PC's screen without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the current image and users can use their PC independently of the display from the projector
  • Eco Picture Mute - (Instant Off / Instant On): The eco picture mute feature reduces power consumption down to 30%, saving cost and lamp hours. This feature can be used in the boardroom as instant off / instant on in-between presentations
  • Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment): When a computer is used as a picture source, APA automatically optimizes phase, pitch and shift values. These can also be adjusted manually
  • Eco Lamp Dimming: These projectors (if this function is selected) can reduce power consumption and brightness by 10-15%. After a user pre-set time, the brightness and power consumption will reduce to 30% power usage, with instant 100% brightness returning as soon as a new signal input is detected
  • Six Picture Modes: Both these projectors have six available picture modes for correct picture quality; dynamic, standard, game, living, cinema and presentation. With six picture modes and three brightness modes combined, users can select the most suitable picture / brightness mode
  • Eco Gauge: When the projector is shut down, an eco achievement indication (gauge) appears to show the user how well they have used the projector. The more eco features that have been used, the better the eco green leaf mark. (Calculated by the use of eco functions and actual lamp wattage)
  • Picture Muting / Audio Muting: If there is a need to blackout the image or turn off the audio from the projector, all it takes is a single button-press on the remote control. One button will mute audio and image at the same time. There is also a separate mute audio button for audio-only muting
  • Auto Dimming Mode: The projector automatically adjusts brightness depending on the image. The darker the image, the less energy used by the lamp (Maximum 70% lamp power reduction based on the image)
  • Audio Switcher Facility: To avoid the need for a separate audio switcher, the projector can be used to select between two audio sources, routing them via a variable audio output to the room amplification system
  • Auto Input Search: Auto input search detects which input has an incoming signal and automatically switches to it. This makes it easier for users to set up the projector prior to making a presentation
  • Direct Power On / Off: With this function, there is no need to go through standby mode when powering up the projector. The projector can be set to activate as soon as power is supplied
  • Off and Go: At the end of a presentation, users can turn off the power supply to the projector immediately, instead of going through a power down cycle
