3,300 lumens WXGA Ultra Short Throw interactive projector


Bright, high contrast widescreen projector for mid-size classrooms and meeting rooms: with easy installation, a wide range of interactivity functions and low ownership costs.
The VPL-SW631C Ultra Short Throw projector is ideal for classroom or corporate use, with simple, flexible installation, low ownership costs, enhanced interactivity and easy connection to other devices.

Present big, bright images over 2m across with the projector as little as 47cm from the screen or whiteboard, with less distracting glare and shadows.

Advanced 3LCD BrightEra™ panel technology by Sony ensures high contrast, widescreen WXGA images with excellent colour stability. The projector’s powerful 3,300 lumens colour light output ensures that presentations are always seen clearly, even in brightly-lit environments.

Seamless integration with school or office networks can be enhanced with an optional Wi-Fi module, letting students wirelessly share homework, images and graphics from PCs, smartphones and tablets. Learning’s made richer and more collaborative with dual pen interactivity, allowing teacher and pupil to write on screen simultaneously.

There’s a wide range of smart energy-saving features built in. An extra-long lamp replacement time of up to 10,000 hours minimises costs and reduces downtime in busy classrooms and offices. A newly-designed wall mount bracket makes installation easier in rooms with low ceilings.


Bright, clear images with maximum 3,300 lumens colour light output
The projector’s high light output ensures that presentations are seen clearly in any classroom or meeting room. There’s a choice of three brightness modes to suit any environment, from bright daylight to darkened rooms.
Ultra short throw distance
Present images up to 80” across (2.03m diagonal) with the projector just 47cm from the screen or whiteboard. Distracting glare and shadows are greatly reduced, as well as saving space in a classroom or meeting room.
WXGA resolution for detail-packed presentations
WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution gives lots of crisp, fine detail: perfect for making presentations direct from a laptop or PC.
3LCD BrightEra™ technology
The projector’s efficient 3LCD panel system is enhanced by advanced BrightEra™ technology by Sony. You’ll see the difference with impressively bright, consistent, high resolution images and increased panel reliability.
Gamma adjustment
A new gamma curve adjustment offers three settings for accurate tonal reproduction with rich, punchy colours and clear, easy-to-read text.
Up to 10,000 hours (in Low mode) long-lasting lamp for reduced maintenance and down time
Present for longer without interruption, with reduced maintenance that contributes directly to lower lifetime ownership costs. Filter cleaning cycles are synchronised with lamp replacement, cutting scheduled maintenance visits even further.
Energy-saving features
Advanced lamp technology enables a range of energy-saving features. Auto Light Dimming mode saves energy when the projector is left on without being used. During projection, Auto Picture Mode automatically adjusts light output to suit the scene being projected. Picture Mute dims the projected image when it's not needed to minimise energy consumption.
Wired or wireless network presentation
Upgraded Network Presentation software (included) makes it easier than ever to deliver presentations from a networked PC or Mac with simple one-click connection. Up to four users can project PC/Mac images simultaneously, and up to eight users can connect to one projector. Add the optional IFU-WLM3 USB wireless LAN module and present wirelessly from your tablet or smartphone, using the VueMagic app from Pixelworks (see https://www.vuemagic.com/?q=node/17)
Remote control from iOS mobile devices
Download free Projector Remote app for iOS and easily control projector features from anywhere in the room with your iPhone or iPad.
USB Media viewer
Insert a USB drive and display photos, images or graphics with no PC needed.
USB display for easy one-cable PC connection
"Present pictures and audio* from a connected PC or Mac with just one USB cable - you don't even need to install a software driver.
* There may be a time lag between video and audio. For low-latency applications it is recommended to use projector's line-in or HDMI-in connection."
Dual-pen PC interactivity
Teacher and pupil can write on screen simultaneously, or annotate images from an external source with mouse control and a wide range of drawing tools: two interactive pens and IPU2 PC software included.
Whiteboard mode
Instantly turn any projection surface into an interactive whiteboard. Make annotations on presentations or images from an external source such as a document camera. Save annotations as snapshots for instant recall.
Input label function
It's easier to keep track of various sources with a new input label function that lets you see the name of connected PCs, cameras, BD/DVD players and other devices on screen.
Clear, rich audio from built-in speaker
There’s no need to add an extra audio system: enjoy rich, room-filling sound from the powerful 16W speaker.
Quick and easy to install
Adjustable optical zoom and lens shift simplify speedy, fuss-free installation in any classroom. Generous connections simplify hook-ups with PCs, DVD players, microphones and other AV devices.
Easy wall mounting
Installation's even easier with a new wall mounting bracket design that gives extra flexibility in rooms with low ceilings.
