Features

Brilliant colour performance with high resolution lens
The VPL-FX37 combines a new‑generation optical system, which uses Sony’s BrightEra™ with Long Lasting Optics technology, and a 3LCD projection system to achieve high picture quality in XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and high brightness (6,000 lumens). The VPL-FX37 incorporates a high resolution lens known as the All Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. Its large diameter and fine pitch ensure crisp pictures.
12-bit 3D gamma correction, I/P conversion and film mode
The VPL-FX37 Series projector incorporates 12-bit 3D gamma correction circuitry to perform highly accurate gamma correction, achieving smoother gradations and a richer grey scale. The video signal processing technology that Sony has incorporated in the VPL-FX37 offers I/P conversion and 2-3 pull-down to generate high-quality images with outstanding clarity.
Convenient, simple projector replacement
The standard 1.6x zoom lens enables installation flexibility when replacing an existing projector with the VPL-FX37 – there’s no need to change ceiling mount positions. For applications where more than a standard lens is needed, the VPL-FX37 is compatible with the optional VPLL-Z1024 and VPLL-Z1032 accessory lenses designed for Sony’s current VPL-FX40 Series.
“Blend-in” design
The VPL-FX37 showcases a low-profile chassis, so the projector appears to blend into the ceiling or wall on which it is mounted. The connector panel is located on the front of the unit so that its cables cannot be seen by the audience.
Long-lasting lamp and energy saving design
By incorporating high-performance lamp and advanced lamp-control technology, the VPL-FX37 offers a recommended lamp replacement time of approximately 3,500 hours (in standard mode). The VPL-FX37 offers low power consumption, allowing users to make significant savings on their electricity expenses. With a single push of the ECO MODE key on either the projector or the supplied Remote Commander™ unit, user can select an energy-saving setting from the ECO Mode menu.
Lamp and filter synchronised maintenance
When the air filter must be cleaned, a timely message is displayed on screen. The lamp and the filter are accessible from the same side, so their maintenance can be performed without uninstalling the projector. With typical usage, the filters have an approximate 15000-hour cleaning cycle. This is achieved by a Quad Filter system which means the filters only need to be clean when the lamp is changed, even in harsh conditions, saving maintenance time and cost.
Centred lens design
The centred lens provides symmetry for a balanced installation, and makes setup very simple.
