Features

Short throw distance

High colour reproducibility is important especially when using colourful content, such as materials used in classrooms. The projector also has an excellent contrast ratio of 3000:1.
High brightness of 2700 lumen in High lamp mode
The VPL-SX225 features three brightness modes for different use – 'High' for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, 'Standard' for everyday use, and 'Low' for video in darkened rooms.The native XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 screen resolution panel is perfect for presentations direct from a laptop or PC.
Energy efficient with long-lasting lamp of 10000 hours
The lamp driver optimally controls the wattage of the lamp and achieves a long-lasting lamp time of 10000 hours with the brightness of lamp mode low. The recommended lamp replacement time is extended more than 66%, compared to the previous model.
Advanced energy-saving features
Advanced lamp technology enables robust energy-saving features. For example, greater brightness control in Auto Light Dimming mode saves considerable energy when the projector is left on without being used. During projection, Auto Picture Mode automaticallyadjusts light output to suit the projected scene. When you need to mute the picture temporarily, light output can be completely deactivated to minimise energy consumption.
