Features

Bright, clear images with maximum 4,500 lumens colour light output
The projector’s high light output ensures that presentations are seen clearly in any classroom or meeting room. Choose from three brightness modes to suit any environment – High for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, Standard for everyday use, and Low for watching video in darkened rooms.
1.32:1 to 1.91:1 throw ratio
The VPL-CW256 offers a 1.32:1 to 1.91:1 throw ratio, allowing installation in most larger classrooms or meeting rooms.
High resolution lens
The high resolution Advanced Crisp Focus (ACF) lens offers a large diameter and fine pitch to ensure clear, sharp pictures.
Fine lens shift
The projector's wide lens shift range means that the projector can be positioned closer to the ceiling, or horizontally offset to avoid ceiling obstacles.
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.
WXGA resolution for detail-packed presentations
WXGA (1280 x 800) 16:10 resolution offers lots of crisp, fine detail: perfect for making presentations direct from a laptop or PC.
Quieter operation
Acoustic fan noise is reduced compared with previous models for even quieter operation.
Save energy at the touch of a button
Just push the ECO MODE button on the projector or remote commander to instantly access a range of energy-saving settings.
Auto Dimming
Projector brightness is gradually reduced automatically if there’s no input signal, or after a pre-set time – cutting power consumption and saving energy bills. Brightness instantly returns to maximum when an input signal is detected.
Power Saving Picture Mute
Touch a button on the projector remote and the picture’s muted instantly. Another touch and the projector’s instantly powered back up to resume your presentation.
Vertical and Horizontal Keystone Adjustment
Keystone distortion of vertically up to +/- 30 degrees and horizontally up to +/- 20 degrees can be digitally corrected via the on-screen menu and/or remote commander. This allows images to be projected with their correct geometry, even when installation space is limited.
Advanced Geometric Correction
Each image corner and side can be grabbed and adjusted for a true, square fit - invaluable when projecting from an offset position.
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
Phase, Pitch and Shift values are automatically optimised when using the projector with a PC source. These values can also be adjusted manually.
Auto Input Search
The projector automatically switches to the correct input, simplifying set-up and saving time.
Audio switcher facility
The projector can select between two audio sources, routing them via a variable audio output to the room amplification system.
Picture Freeze Function
Picture Freeze is useful if you need to look at other material on your PC’s screen during presentations without the audience seeing it. Freeze the current image that's being projected, and use your PC independently from the projector display.
Get closer with Digital Zoom
Instantly magnify a selected portion of the screen by up to 4x for a really close-up view of images from a connected PC.
Off and Go
Touch a button at the end of your presentation and projector is turned off immediately, without going through a lengthy power-down cycle.
Direct Power On/Off
There’s no need to go through Standby mode when powering up the projector: the projector activates as soon as power is supplied.
Security that’s built in
Your investment’s protected with security measures including password protection and physical anti-theft anchor points.
