VPLSX125 Short Throw

VPLSX125 Short Throw

Excellent contrast, consistent colour stability, high picture quality and longer durability will improve visibility and enhance teaching quality.


Maximum 2500 lumens brightness with High, Standard and Low modes
The VPL-SX125 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.

0.62 throw ratio
The VPL-SX125 offers a 0.62:1 throw ratio that produces a 2.03M (80”) diagonal screen size image from only 1.0M (3.2 feet) away from the screen.

3LCD BrightEra Technology
Sony’s 0.63 inch BrightEra inorganic TFT 3-LCD panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability.

WXGA Widescreen Resolution
The VPL-SW125 has a colour light output of 2600 ANSI lumens and with a native WXGA (1280 x 800) widescreen resolution panel is perfect for video or presentations direct from a laptop or PC.

6000 hours Lamp Life
New driving scheme reduces gap expansion that reduces brightness gradation and a new cooling system allows uniformity in the temperature of the glass bulb which prevents the glass from clouding.

Eco Mode Key
Users can easily select power-saving Eco Modes. The most energy-efficient mode is accessible though a single button-push, and further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system.

Front Exhaust
With a front exhaust system, users sitting behind the projector are not affected by expelled hot air and fan noise.

Easy to operate control panel layout
The VPL-SX125’s control panel is on top of the devicefor easy operation, with large, easy-to-locate controls.

Automatic Keystone Adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and can correct it automatically. (Note that since this is an electronic correction, it may reduce the picture quality slightly).

Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
When a computer is used as a picture source, APA automatically optimizes Phase, Pitch and Shift values. These can also be adjusted manually.

Auto Input Search
Auto Input Search detects which input has an incoming signal, and automatically switches to it. This makes it easier for users to set up the projector prior to making a presentation.

Picture Muting
If the picture needs to be turned off, all it takes is a single button-press on the remote control. This will mute audio at the same time. There is also a separate “mute audio” button for audio-only muting.

Audio switcher facility
To avoid the need for a separate audio switcher, the projector can be used to select between two audio sources, routing them via a variable audio output to the room amplification system.

Picture Freeze Function
Picture Freeze is useful during presentations if you need to look at other material on your PC’s screen without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the current image, and you can use your PC independently of the display from the projector.

Digital Zoom
With Digital Zoom, if you are displaying a computersourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of thescreen image up to four times.
