Overview

Bright, efficient, easy-to-use projector for classrooms and meeting rooms: with excellent picture quality and low ownership costs.
The VPL-DX240 XGA projector is a cost-effective yet fully-featured choice for clear, bright presentations in offices, meeting rooms and school classrooms. Light, compact and energy efficient, it's easy to set up and connect with other devices.

Powerful 3,200 lumens colour light output with 3LCD BrightEra™ panel technology ensures crisply detailed XGA resolution images that are always seen clearly, even in brightly-lit rooms.

Easy connections are enhanced with dual HDMI ports, plus a 5V USB supply to power PC sticks and smart dongles. Auto Start gets you presenting faster, while Quick Power Off saves time when you're in a hurry to the next meeting. Other presenter-friendly features include grid line templates for neater written notes on a whiteboard, plus a timer that reminds speakers not to outstay their welcome.

Running costs are kept down by clever energy-saving features. Simplified maintenance and an extra-long lamp replacement time of up to 10,000 hours helps reduce downtime in busy classrooms and offices.

Features

Light, compact and stylish
Weighing less than 3kg, the space-saving VPL-DX240 is easy to carry between meeting rooms or classrooms.
Bright, clear images with maximum 3,200 lumens colour light output
The projector’s high light output ensures that presentations are seen clearly in any classroom or meeting room.
XGA resolution for crisp presentations
XGA (1024 x 768) resolution gives lots of fine detail: useful for making presentations direct from a laptop or tablet.
3LCD BrightEra™ technology
The efficient 3LCD panel system is enhanced by advanced BrightEra™ technology by Sony. You’ll see the difference with impressively consistent, high resolution images and excellent reliability.
Picture modes
There's a choice of seven picture modes to fine-tune your image with any kind of content - including new Vivid mode for brighter-looking pictures that really stand out with more powerful, high-impact colour.
Gamma adjustment
Gamma curve adjustment offers three settings for accurate tonal reproduction with rich, punchy colours and clear, easy-to-read text.
Versatile, easy to use connectivity
Two HDMI ports and a USB power supply port (5V 2A max) simplify connection with laptops plus other devices like 'stick' computers and smart dongles.
Simple screen mirroring
Add a Miracast-compatible dongle (not included) and project wirelessly from laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Get presenting faster
Auto Start detects signals from a connected HDMI or VGA source, turning on the projector lamp so you're all ready to start presenting.
Switch off and go
Quick Power Off shortens cool-down time to just 10 seconds after switch-off at the end of a presentation - saving time when you're in a hurry to the next meeting.
Presentation timer
Speakers can keep an eye on their allocated presentation time, with a count-up or count-down timer in a corner of the screen.
Make neater notes
Pick from a choice of superimposed grid and ruled line templates to make neat handwriting and drawing easier when you're projecting onto a white board.
Up to 10,000 hours long-lasting lamp
The energy-efficient lamp driver contributes to an exceptional lamp replacement interval of up to 10,000 hours (in Low brightness mode).
Reduced ownership costs
There's a range of energy-saving features to drive down total ownership costs. Auto Mode adjusts lamp brightness depending on picture content. Lamp Dimming progressively reduces brightness if no input's detected, or after a preset time. Touching the Blank button on the projector remote instantly mutes the picture when it's not needed.
Audio out
Audio terminals allow direct connection of active speakers (not included) to suit the needs of any room.
Easy access, simple maintenance
Lamp access on the top panel of the projector simplifies lamp replacement, whether the projector's ceiling- or table-mounted. There's also a sliding air filter and detachable dust cover, for easy maintenance without having to remove the projector from its ceiling mount.
Choice of setting locks
As well as full lock mode, an additional mode allows temporary adjustment of picture settings: original settings are restored when the projector's restarted.
