Designed for the corporate sector to enable them to work smarter and create business-driving impact, the VPL-DX145 is the perfect desktop projector, delivering clear, crisp, bright presentations in any meeting room environment.

For great Performance, easy convenience and Eco and economic responsibility the VPL-DX145 is the perfect choice for the corporate meeting room and executive boardroom.

Sony's inorganic panels (BrightEra) delivers higher picture quality, substantially brighter images, higher efficiency, better contrast, consistent color stability and longer durability and usability.

With Eco conscious features that ensure low total cost of ownership - the projector provides long hours of lamp life, three brightness mode, auto lamp dimming, auto picture dimming and an Eco gauge that makes the VPL-DX145 one of the most Eco-friendly projectors on the market today.

Maximum 3200 lumens brightness with high, standard and low modes
The VPL-DX145 features three brightness modes for your different uses - high for naturally white presentations in bright rooms, standard for everyday use, and low for video in darkened rooms.

3-LCD 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.

Network presentation (Wireless/LAN)
Send content via a LAN RJ-45 10Base-T/100Base-TX or wirelessly via the USB Wireless LAN module (IFU-WLM3) that comes standard with the VPL-DX145.

XGA resolution
The VPL-DX145 has a color light output of 3200 ANSI lumens and with a native XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 screen resolution panel is perfect for presentations direct from a laptop or PC.

Longer hours lamp life
Driving scheme reduces gap expansion that reduces brightness gradation and a 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 through a single button-push and further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system.

Eco lamp dimming
Reduce power consumption without user detection or after a user pre-set time, reduce brightness and power consumption up to 30% power usage for ultimate power Eco savings.

Eco picture mute
Picture mute reduces power consumption down to 30% power usage, saving cost and lamp hours. No need to power complete off and turn back on that does increase power consumption and time consuming.

Eco gauge
At time of projector shut down an Eco achievement indication (gauge) appears to show the user how well they have used their projector. The more Eco features used, the better the Eco green leaf mark.

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 computer-sourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of the screen image up to four times.

Off and go
At the end of a presentation, you can turn off the power supply to the projector immediately, instead of going through a 'power down' cycle.

Direct power on/off
With this function, there is no need to go through 'Standby' mode when powering up the projector. The projector can be set to activate as soon as power is applied.

Multiple picture modes
The VPL-DX145 has six picture modes (Dynamic, Standard, Game, Blackboard, Cinema and Presentation) that can be selected to suite the nature of the source material.

Built-in security measures
The VPL-DX145 has a package of security measures, including password protection, and physical anti-theft anchor points.
