The Sony VPL-CX235 3LCD BrightEra XGA Projector packs an impressive array of features in a moderately priced unit which is ideal for business, educational or home use. This full-featured projector offers a powerful 4100 lumens of brightness backed with a crisp 3100:1 contrast ratio, rendering sharp vivid 1024 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.
The VPL-CX235 projector will keep saving you money after the initial purchase. Energy savings start with the 245W high-pressure mercury lamp. It boasts a projected life of 5000 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. Extended lamp life is possible with a new driving scheme that reduces gap expansion and brightness gradation, plus a new cooling system that allows uniformity in the temperature of the glass bulb and prevents it from clouding.
The VPL-CX235 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-CX235s.
The VPL-CX235 also has the international credentials you've come to expect in more expensive projectors. It's got a world-ready 100 to 240 V 50/60Hz power supply. It can handle NTSC, PAL and SECAM video signals. The VPL-CX235 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, 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.
