About Sony

The Sony VPLEX145 XGA 3100 Lumens Projector offers a powerful 3,100 lumens of brightness backed with a crisp 4,000:1 contrast ratio, rendering sharp vivid 1,024 x 768 resolution images on screens up to 300" (7.6 m). Its 0.63" 3LCD imaging panels (the parts that create the image) deliver smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range. Energy savings start with the 210W high-pressure mercury lamp. It boasts a projected life of 6,000 hours in Low mode and since it's is synchronized with the durable filter, both are replaced at the same time saving precious minutes of downtime during feature films or presentations.

The Eco menu, which offers Low, Medium and High operating modes, is easily accessed on the projector keypad or the remote control. Other energy saving features include low power consumption and a Power Saving mode which shuts down the projector if no signal is detected in 10 minutes. The highly-efficient front fan exhaust enables what Sony calls Off and Go, which virtually eliminates cool-down time and has you packed and off to your next destination in record time.

The VPL-EX145 is equipped to use your local network (LAN) thanks to its wired RJ-45 (Ethernet) jack. You can make presentations from any PC on your network as well as managing, monitoring and controlling it remotely. You can also send important announcements like rescheduling information or weather updates to a whole fleet of VPL-145s. They, in turn can email you individual status data detailing conditions like excessively high temperature, imminent lamp burn-out and other maintenance issues.

It's got a world-ready 100 to 240 volt 50 / 60Hz power supply. It can handle NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL-60 and SECAM video signals and it has a 20 language onscreen display (OSD). The VPL-EX145 also decodes and displays closed captioning from programming that provides it, benefiting those in your audience with hearing impairments. It also helps people with native languages other than English as well as those in noisy environments such as gyms and trade shows. Lastly, just to make sure that the lightweight VPL-EX145 doesn't depart without leaving a forwarding address, security is provided by anti-theft anchor points, as well as password and keypad lockouts.
