Short throw distance
The VPL-SW225 offers a 0.46:1 throw ratio that produces a 2.03m (80-inch) diagonal screen size image from only 79cm (31-inch) away from the screen.
High image quality 3LCD natural and vivid colour images
Thanks to the optical system projecting three basic colours constantly each, the projector offers excellent light efficiency, which ensures colourful and bright images. 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 2600 lumen in High lamp mode
The VPL-SW225 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 WXGA (1280 x 800) 16:10 widescreen 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 automatically adjusts 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.
Network presentation (LAN/Wireless LAN)
When the projector is installed on a LAN/Wireless LAN, presentations can be projected from any PC and Mac on the network. A tablet or smart phone can be connected at the same time. The wireless presentation capability makes it easy to present files from your tablet device or smart phone. You can project jpg, pdf and other supporting formats. Up to four users can project PC/Mac images simultaneously, while up to eight users can connect to one projector.
