Sony VPL-BW120S overview

  • 1Description

The Sony VPL-BW120S Home Theater 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, 2,600 lumen, 4,000:1 contrast ratio projector. Its 0.59" 3LCD imaging panels 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-BW120S.

If we wanted to add a descriptor to the VPL-BW120S's name, a good one might be Eco for 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 210W high-pressure lamp with a projected life of 6,000 hours in Low 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. The Eco menu, which allows Low, Standard and High operation, is easily accessed on the projector keypad or the remote control. Other energy saving features include low power consumption and a Power Saving mode which shuts down the projector if no signal is detected in 10 minutes. The highly-efficient front exhaust fan virtually eliminates cool-down time and has you packed and off to your next destination immediately.

The VPL-BW120S also has the international credentials you've come to expect in more expensive projectors. It's got a world-ready 100 to 240VAC 50/60 Hz power supply. It can handle NTSC3.58, PAL, SECAM, NTSC4.43, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL60 video signals and it has a 20 language onscreen display (OSD). The VPL-BW120S 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, just to make sure that that you have the lightweight VPL-BW120S when and where you need it, security is provided by anti-theft anchor points, as well as password and keypad lockouts.

Short Throw Technology
The VPL-BW120S is a great space saver in small rooms. There's no need to ceiling mount the projector, since it's short-throw lens means that you can place it on a table close to the screen and sit behind the projector
