With a 0.46:1 throw ratio, the VPL-SW235 WXGA 3LCD Short Throw Projector from Sony is optimized for classroom and other installations where the projector will be mounted close to the screen. A single lamp provides 3000 ANSI lumens color brightness in Bright Mode, and a three-chip LCD imaging device renders a 1280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution, 16:10 "widescreen" aspect ratio image. Through scaling the projector can also support a range of non-native resolutions, up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) for video and UXGA (1600 x 1200) for computer sources.

Multiple ports allow the VPL-SW235 to receive video and audio from a variety of sources, including computers, Blu-ray Disc and DVD players, document cameras, HDTV devices, and more. It features two VGA ports, an HDMI port, an S-video port, and a composite port. A VGA output mirrors the selected VGA input so that you can connect a computer monitor or pass the video along to a second downstream device without needing a distribution amplifier. There are also three analog audio inputs, two on 3.5mm mini jack connectors paired with the VGA inputs and one on stereo RCA that can service either the S-video or composite input. Audio can be output to amplified speakers or a sound system using a variable 3.5mm mini jack or using the projector's built-in 16-watt mono speaker.

For giving "PC Free" presentations, there is a USB type A male port that accepts FAT32-formatted media and supports a variety of still image formats. This port also allows you to install the optional IFU-WLM3 Wi-Fi module, available separately. A USB type B female port gives you another way of connecting the projector to computer, especially when an HDMI or VGA output is unavailable.

Short Throw Design
With a fixed 0.46:1 throw ratio it is possible to render a 80"-diagonal image with the projector mounted 29" away from the screen. By mounting at such a close distance the risk of shadow interference and potentially dazzling specular reflections is greatly reduced.
3LCD Technology
A beamsplitting prism sends red, blue, and green light through three 0.59" monochrome LCD displays to render a video image. 3LCD design features no moving parts in the imaging system, although there is still a cooling fan, and is free of the "rainbow effect" artifact sometimes perceived on color wheel-based systems.
3000 Lumens Color Brightness
This projector features both 3000 lumens white brightness and 3000 lumens color brightness. Some projectors only specify the white brightness in their lumens ratings, even though in many cases color portions of the image will be less bright than comparable gray scales. Determining the correct brightness for your applications requires taking into account the amount of ambient light (if any) in the room, the screen material used, the throw distance, and the content being shown.
16:10 Native Aspect Ratio
This projector features a 16:10 native aspect ratio. This is considered a widescreen format, and comes very close to the 16:9 standard of HDTV. This format is ideal if you plan to show HD video, and can still be used for presentations - though in the case of PowerPoints some extra space may be leftover on the sides. The projector can show 4:3 too; however black bars (pillaring) will have to be applied, or the image will have to be stretched or cropped to fit.
Two USB Ports
Type B Female: Provides an alternative way of connecting the projector to a computer apart from HDMI or VGA. This features requires a USB cable (available separately) and the installation of USB Display software on the computer.

Type A Female: Allows you to display select still image formats such as JPEG and PNG from a FAT32-formatted flash drive or other USB media. This port also supports the installation of the optional IFU-WLM3 Wi-Fi adapter, available separately.
Wi-Fi Ready
Using the IFU-WLM3 wireless USB dongle, available separately, you can show content directly from compatible computers and mobile devices. Because this adapter depends on Wi-Fi bandwidth, it is ideal for mostly static images. Video content may display at a lower framerate or be delayed.
Microphone Input
With a 16-watt mono speaker you can use the projector as a PA system. A dedicated 3.5mm mini jack microphone input allows you to connect a dynamic microphone, available separately.
Ethernet and RS-232 Controllable
An RS-232 port means the projector can be controlled from a computer running custom software or via automation systems such as Crestron. Meanwhile an Ethernet port allows it to be controlled across a local network using a Web browser.
4,000 Hour Lamp Life
In High Brightness mode the lamp is estimated to last 4,000 hours. This can be extended up to 10,000 hours by keeping the projector set to its lowest brightness setting.
