Maximum 3200 lumens brightness with High, Standard and Low modes
The VPL-DX140 features three brightness modes for your different uses – High for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, Standard for everyday use, and Low for video in darkened rooms.
1.37:1 to 1.80:1 throw ratio
The VPL-DX140 offers a throw ratio that accommodates the majority of installation replacements in all corporate environments.
3LCD BrightEra Technology
Sony's 0.63 inch BrightEra inorganic TFT 3-LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability.
7,000hours of recommended lamp replacement time
New driving scheme reduces gap expansion that reduces brightness gradation and a new cooling system allows uniformity in the temperature of the glass bulb which prevents the glass from clouding.
ECO Mode Key
Users can easily select power-saving ECO Modes. The most energy-efficient mode is accessible through a single button-push and further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system.
Lamp Dimming
Reduce power consumption without user detection or after a user pre-set time, reduce brightness and power consumption up to 30% power usage for ultimate power savings.
Auto Mode (Auto Brightness Adjustment Function)
Adjust brightness depending on picture, The darker the picture, the less energy used by the lamp. (Max 70% Lamp power reduction based on image).
Picture Mute - (Instant off / Instant On)
New Picture Mute reduces power consumption down to 30% power usage, saving cost and lamp hours. No need to power complete off and turn back on that does increase power consumption and time consuming.
ECO Gauge
At time of projector shut down 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 optimises Phase, Pitch and Shift values. These can also be adjusted manually.
Digital Zoom
With Digital Zoom, if you are displaying a computer-sourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of the screen image up to four times.
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.
Filter replaced at the same time as lamp
The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance.
Multiple Picture Modes
The VPL-DX140 has six picture modes (Dynamic, Standard, Game, Blackboard, Cinema and Presentation) that can be selected to suite the nature of the source material.
Built-in security measures
The VPL-DX140 has a package of security measures, including password protection, and physical anti-theft anchor points.
