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.
