Features

Compact, lightweight and stylish design
The VPL-DX142 has a compact and lightweight body with a small footprint of approximately 315 x 75 x 230.5 mm (12 13/32 x 2 15/16 x 9 1/16 inches) and a light weight of approximately 2.5 kg (5.4 lb). This compact, lightweight projector is convenient for carrying around a meeting room or classroom.
Energy efficient with long-lasting lamp of 10,000 hours
The lamp driver optimally controls the wattage of the lamp and achieves a long-lasting lamp time of 10,000* hours. The recommended lamp replacement time is extended by 43%, compared to the previous model.
*Lamp mode: low, Complies with IEC61947 standard.
Advanced energy-saving features
Advanced lamp technology enables robust energy-saving features. For example, greater brightness control in Auto Light Dimming mode saves considerable energy when the projector is left on without being used. During projection, Auto Lamp Mode automatically adjusts light output to suit the projected scene. When you need to mute the picture temporarily, light output can be completely deactivated to minimise energy consumption.
High image quality 3LCD BrightEra™ natural and vivid colour images
XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 screen resolution, 3LCD BrightEra™ natural and vivid colour images, plus various Picture Modes for optimising image quality, make the projector one of the best in its class. Thanks to the optical system projecting three basic colours constantly, the projector offers excellent light efficiency, ensuring colourful and bright images. Sony's BrightEra™ panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability. High colour reproducibility is important especially when using colourful content, such as materials used in classrooms.
Various picture modes for optimal picture quality
The projector has six available picture modes for correct picture quality: Dynamic, Standard, Presentation, Blackboard, Game, and Cinema. With six picture modes and three brightness modes combined, the user can select the most suitable picture / brightness combination according to the picture source and environment, to create the optimal image.
