7,000 lumens XGA 3LCD Higher Installation projector

Where to buy


A versatile and ultra-bright BrightEra 3LCD 7,000 lumens installation projector with long life and low maintenance
Featuring a very wide range of lens-shift adjustment, and interchangeable lenses, this is a projector that installers can easily fit into awkward places, often reusing mounts and fixtures. The VPL-FX500L is so flexible that it can replace a very wide range of existing equipment.

Outstanding image quality is just one of the many benefits of Sony's 3LCD BrightEra technology. By reducing the effects of UV light, it lengthens panel life, brightens the image, and improves colour rendition.

Maintenance is kept to an absolute minimum. Automatic lamp-switching means that at the end of a lamp's working life, another one, already in place, is brought into use.

Synchronised lamp and filter cycles halve the required number of maintenance visits.

The VPL-FX500 is the perfect choice for venues that need an extremely bright projector with a high quality image and low maintenance costs
