The VPL-EX225 2700 Lumens XGA Portable Projector from Sony has a native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and a brightness of 2700 lumens. The projector features a 1.3x flexible standard 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 makes 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 beamer includes several eco mode options which use less energy. Lastly, the VPL-EX225 proves wireless ready with the optional USB wireless module (IPN-WLN3).

Maximum 2700 Lumens of Brightness with High, Standard and Low Modes
The VPL-EX225 features three brightness modes for different uses - high for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, standard for everyday use, and low for video in darkened rooms
XGA Resolution
The VPL-EX225 has a color light output of 2700 ANSI lumens with a native XGA (1024 x 768), 4:3 screen resolution panel. The projector works direct from a laptop or PC
7000 Hours Lamp Life
Sony's driving scheme reduces gap expansion and brightness gradation. The cooling system allows uniformity in the temperature of the glass bulb, which prevents the glass from clouding
Bright Era 3LCD Panels
Sony's 0.63" (16mm) BrightEra inorganic TFT 3LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability
Digital Zoom
If you are displaying a computer-sourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of the screen image up to four times
Wireless Ready
The VPL-EX225 proves wireless ready with the optional USB wireless module (IPN-WLN3)
Lamp and Filter Maintenance
The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance
1.37-1.80:1 Throw Ratio
The VPL-EX225 offers a throw ratio that accommodates the majority of installation replacements in all environments
USB Image Viewer Function
A USB media viewer allows users to directly project image files stored on a USB memory device
Multiple Picture Modes
The VPL-EX225 has six picture modes (Dynamic, standard, game, blackboard, cinema and presentation) that can be selected to the nature of the source material
Built-In Security Measures
The VPL-EX225 has 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 through a single button. Further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system
Eco Lamp Dimming
Reduce power consumption by 30% without user detection or after a user pre-set time
Auto Dimming Mode
Adjust brightness depending on the picture. The darker the picture, the less energy used by the lamp (Max 70% lamp power reduction based on image)
Eco Picture Mute - (Instant Off / Instant On)
Picture mute reduces power consumption by 30%, saving cost and lamp hours. No need to power off and then turn back on
Eco Gauge
At the time of projector shutdown, an eco achievement indication (gauge) appears to show the user how well they have used their projector. The more eco features used, the better the eco green leaf mark (Calculated by use of eco functions and actual lamp wattage)
Vertical Keystone Adjustment
The projector can correct keystone distortion by +/- 30% for perfect installation adjustment to the smart board or screen. (Note that since this is an electronic correction, it will reduce the picture quality slightly)
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
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
Picture Muting
If the picture needs to be turned off, all it takes is a single button on the remote control. This will mute audio at the same time. There is also a separate mute audio button for audio-only muting
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
Picture Freeze Function
Picture freeze is useful during presentations if you need to look at other material on your PC's screen without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the current image, and you can use your PC independently of the display from the projector
Off and Go
At the end of a presentation, you can turn off the power supply to the projector immediately, instead of going through a power down cycle
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 applied
