Overview
  • 1Description

The Sony VPL-EW130 WXGA Projector is priced like an entry level projector but one look at its features and specs and you'll agree that's it's anything but. This is a full-featured, 3000 lumen, 2600:1 contrast ratio projector. Its 0.59" 3LCD imaging panels (the parts that create the image) deliver sharp, bright images with superior detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range deliver incredible detail to every image displayed by the VPL-EW130.

If we wanted to add a descriptor to the VPL-EW130's name, a good one might be eco (economy). This is a projector that will keep saving you money after the initial purchase. Savings start with the light source. Sony has employed a projected life of 6000 hours in economy mode, which is synchronized with the long-lasting filter so that both are replaced at the same time. This saves precious minutes of downtime during feature films or presentations. All which can be accomplished with the push of a button.

The VPL-EW130 also has the international credentials you've come to expect in more expensive projectors. 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.

Lastly, 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.

WXGA Widescreen Resolution
The VPL-EW130 has a color light output of 3000 ANSI lumens and with a native WXGA (1280 x 800) widescreen resolution panel, it is perfect for video or presentations direct from a laptop or PC
3LCD BrightEra Technology
Sony's 0.59" BrightEra inorganic TFT 3LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability
Eco Mode Key
Users can easily select power saving eco modes. The most energy efficient mode is accessible though a single button push, and further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system
Front Exhaust
With a front exhaust system, users sitting behind the projector are not affected by expelled hot air and fan noise
HD Ready
HMDI input means the VPL-EW130 is HD ready
Easy to Operate Control Panel
The VPL-EW130's control panel is on top of the device for easy operation, with large, easy-to-locate controls
Built-In Upward Beam Angle and Keystone Adjustment
Normally, the front angle of a projector has to be adjusted to raise the beam to the screen. In the VPL-EW130, this initial adjustment is built-in and includes a corresponding keystone adjustment, saving two setup stages
Automatic Keystone Adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and can correct it automatically. (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
It 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
Low Maintenance Filter
The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance
Picture Modes
The VPL-EW130 has six picture modes (dynamic, standard, game, living, cinema and presentation) that can be selected to suite the nature of the source material
Security
The VPL-EW130 has a package of security measures, including password protection, and physical anti-theft anchor points
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
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
Four Times Enlargement
If you are displaying a computer-sourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of the screen image up to four times
Picture Freeze
It 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
Acts as Audio Switcher
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
