Features

Light, compact and stylish
Weighing less than 3kg, the space-saving VPL-DX271 is easy to carry between meeting rooms or classrooms.
Bright, clear images with maximum 3,600 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 picture modes to fine-tune your image with any kind of content - including 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 connection to smart devices
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 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.
Up to 10,000 hours long-lasting lamp
The energy-efficient lamp driver contributes to lower operating costs and 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.
Settings lock for greater security
Prevent unwanted changes to projector settings.
