The Sony VPL-SW525C Ultra-Short Throw Projector features an interactive function for delivering powerful and interactive presentations even in limited spaces. It offers WXGA projection from very short distances with powerful 2,500 lumens through its powerful short throw lens. This projector is suitable for education, training, corporate applications, and a range of other commercial uses.

For creating interactive teaching or collaboration spaces, the VPL-SW525C projector offers built-in interactivity and transforms most of a flat surface into an interactive screen, thus eliminating the need to install expensive interactive whiteboards. Rich interactive capabilities include simultaneous dual-touch annotation, a mouse function to operate many third-party curriculum software products, and useful tools to enhance interactive training and presentation.

The VPL-SW525C projector offers simultaneous dual-touch interactive annotation on the projection screen with the use of the 2 supplied pen devices and drawing software. The main pen has full functionality (for teachers and meeting owners) and a sub pen with limited functionality (for students and participants). These pens feature an ergonomic design to fit comfortably in the users’ hands. Each pen runs with 2x AAA dry cell batteries (sold separately). These interactive pens work as a computer mouse or a screen annotation device, allowing users to operate third-party software products. In a classroom environment, they allow users to easily incorporate many third-party curriculum software products to launch interactive lessons. In a corporate environment, instant communication space can be established using the virtual whiteboard mode and is a convenient tool for conducting lessons or training.

Ultra-Short Projection Distance
This projector comes equipped with an ultra-short focal length lens, which makes it possible to project images from a very short distance. A short projection distance has 2 key benefits. The presenter will not be distracted by the projected image and it's easier for the audience to see the projected image because screen shadow is minimized.
Cost-Efficient and Energy-Efficient Design
Long-Lasting Lamp: By incorporating a high-performance lamp and advanced lamp-control technology, it has a very high long lamp replacement time of up to 6,000 hours.
Lamp and Filter Synchronized Maintenance: The expected lamp maintenance interval time for each model can reach up to 6,000 hours depending on the selected lamp mode, and dust filters require the same maintenance interval. Synchronizing the timing of the lamp and filter maintenance enables users to reduce the numbers of ladder climbs for maintenance.
Low Power Consumption: This projector offers remarkably low power consumption, helping users to save on their electricity expenses.
Lamp Dimming Function: This projector is equipped with a lamp dimming function. After 10 seconds of a static signal feed, the lamp dims by approximately 15%, which is minimally noticeable. If the projector is left powered on while not in use, after a set period of time, it will automatically detect no change in signal input and will dim the lamp to as low as approximate 30% of original brightness to reduce energy consumption.
Superb Picture Quality
Brilliant Color Performance: This projector adopts a 3 LCD projection system incorporating 3 LCD panels. This system enables the projector to present bright and natural images. By combining an advanced generation of inorganic LCD panels, this projector offer high picture quality and brightness that utilizes the BrightEra technology with the 3 LCD projection system.
12-Bit 3D Gamma Correction: The projector incorporates 12-bit 3D gamma correction circuitry to perform highly accurate gamma correction, achieving smoother gradations and a richer gray scale.
Drawing / Dual Pen Mode
Enables up to 2 people to simultaneously annotate on the screen in the virtual keyboard mode. Convenient tool for conducting lessons or training.
Whiteboard Mode
This allows users to annotate on the virtual whiteboard, and to import graphics and PowerPoint files as background for instant collaboration, or to use spotlight tools and pen stroke reducing tools for enhanced communication.
