The VPL-SX536 XGA projector is an ideal choice for ultra-close projection applications in the corporate and educational markets. This projector offers: LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIPThe model has a low brightness mode which reduces power consumption and extends the recommended lamp replacement time to approximately 6000 hours, which means lower operating costs across the board. EASE OF OPERATIONThis projector is ideal for small or difficult spaces - its ultra-short throw ratio can produce a 2.03M (80") diagonal screen size image from only 0.56 – 0.58M (1.84 – 1.9 feet) away from the screen. It also has easy to operate controls. BRIGHT, CLEAR PRESENTATIONSExcellent contrast, consistent colour stability, high picture quality and longer durability will improve visibility and enhance teaching quality.
Maximum 3000 lumens brightness with High, Standard and Low modes
The VPL-SX536 features three brightness modes for different use – 'High' for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, 'Standard' for everyday use, and 'Low' for video in darkened rooms.
0.34:1 to 0.36:1 throw ratio
The VPL-SX536 offers a 0.34:1 to 0.36:1 throw ratio that produces a 2.03M (80”) diagonal screen size image from only 0.56 – 0.58M (1.84 – 1.9 feet) away from the screen.
3LCD BrightEra Technology
Sony's 0.63 inch BrightEra 3LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability.
The VPL-SX536 has a colour light output of 3000 ANSI lumens and with a native XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 screen resolution panel is perfect for presentations direct from a laptop or PC.
6000 hours lamp replacement time
The 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
Easily access a choice of energy-efficient modes at the touch of a button.
This projector (if function is on) can reduce power consumption and brightness by 10~15% without user detection during an input image. After a user pre-set time, the brightness and power consumption will reduce to 30%.
Picture Mute - (Instant off / Instant On)
New Picture Mute reduces power consumption down to 30% power usage, saving cost and lamp hours. This feature can be used in the education market as instant off / instant on in-between class changes. No need to power complete off and turn back on that does increase power consumption and time consuming.
Automatic Keystone Adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and can correct it automatically. (Note that since this is an electronic correction, it may reduce the picture quality slightly).
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
When a computer is used as a picture source, APA automatically optimizes Phase, Pitch and Shift values. These can also be adjusted manually.
Auto Input Search
Auto Input Search detects which input has an incoming signal, and automatically switches to it. This makes it easier for users to set up the projector prior to making a presentation.
Audio switcher facility
To avoid the need for a separate audio switcher, the projector can be used to select between two audio sources, routing them via a variable audio output to the room amplification system.
Picture Freeze Function
Picture Freeze is useful during presentations if you need to look at other material on your PC’s screen without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the current image, and you can use your PC independently of the display from the projector.
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 cleaning at the same time as lamp replacement
The filter only needs to be cleaned when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving maintenance down-time.
Multiple Picture Modes
The VPL-SX536 has six picture modes (Dynamic, Standard, Game, Blackboard, Cinema and Presentation) that can be selected to suite the nature of the source material.
