Deliver bright, powerful presentations with this ultra short throw interactive classroom projector that’s energy-efficient and wireless ready.
The VPL-SW536C Ultra Short Throw Projector makes a great presentation partner for today’s classrooms.

Ideal for small to medium-sized rooms, the wall-mounting projector throws crisp, easy to see images onto a screen, wall or whiteboard. And since the projector is positioned extremely close to the screen, there’s less glare to distract the teacher or their audience.

Thanks to 3LCD BrightEra™ panel technology by Sony, students can enjoy extremely bright, high contrast WXGA images with excellent colour stability. The projector’s powerful 3100 lumens colour light output ensures that presentations are always seen clearly, even when ambient light levels are high.

Learning’s made even smarter, more satisfying and collaborative with dual pen interactivity, allowing teacher and pupil to write on screen simultaneously. Use the interactive pen to control PC mouse functions, sketch and draw with handwriting recognition. Create tables and charts, use rich 2D/3D graphical tools, formulae and maths functions. Edit objects and grab what’s on screen for later study and review.

Easy to install with plenty of interfaces for connection with other devices, the VPL-SW536C integrates seamlessly with school or office networks. Adding an optional Wi-Fi module lets students and teachers wirelessly share homework, images and graphics from devices like PCs, smartphones and tablets.

There’s a wide range of smart energy-saving features built in. And with extended recommended lamp replacement time up to 6,000 hours, downtime and maintenance costs are minimised.
