The VPL-FW41 is the wide-XGA addition to the F-series range of projectors. Like its counterparts, it features an ultra modern sleek design and Sony's innovative BrightEra technology. The VPL-FW41 delivers an impressive 4500 ANSI lumens and a color light output of 4500 lumens. It is capable of projecting bright and clear pictures even in high ambient lighting environments. This makes it ideal to deliver high-impact multimedia presentations in locations such as boardrooms, large conference rooms, R&D facilities and university classrooms.
With outstanding functionality, simple operation, and network capabilities, this projector will deliver seamless presentations. Its ability to accept a broad array of signals, including those from sources equipped with the latest High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) further increases the dynamics of the presentation.
The VPL-FW41 projector can be tilted 90 degrees upwards or downwards. This flexibility allows the projectors to be used in several different ways, including in a rear projection system.
Twin stacking capability
When applications require double the color light output, the VPL-FW41 projector can be twin-stacked. Pictures from the two projectors are then matched using the Picture Shift function on each unit.
Direct power on
Activating this function allows you to skip standby mode to power on the VPL-FW41 projector immediately. Direct power on is ideal for large-scale facilities such as museums, auditoriums, and conference halls, with images ready for projection as soon as the circuit-breaker on the switchboard is turned on.
ID function for multi-projector installation
The VPL-FW41 projector has a built-in ID function, so each projector can be controlled independently from a single remote commander unit. For multi-projector installations in a single room, this feature is indispensable both during installation and operation.
Easy lamp replacement and filter cleaning
When it's time to replace the lamp in the VPL-FW41 projector, a timely message appears clearly on the screen. The lamp is accessible from the side of the projector and the filters from the front, so lamp replacement and filter cleaning can be performed without uninstalling the projector.
Multitude of inputs
The VPL-FW41 projector accepts a wide variety of input signals, including HDMI, component and composite video, S-video, and computer signals up to UXGA - which expands the system-connection possibilities. The VPL-FW41 projector is equipped with five BNC connectors, so they can accept signals from sources such as workstations or professional video equipment, and these sources can be located far away from the projector because the interfaces support long-distance signal transmission.
This function makes it possible to prevent projection of a picture on the screen unless the required password is entered when the projector is turned on.
The projector can temporarily disable the output of video signals. This function can be easily operated with just the touch of a button on the supplied remote commander unit.
High-speed image transfer over IP networks
Because the VPL-FW41 projector employs efficient compression and transmission techniques, they can receive and project images via IP networks for effective presentations from any networked PC. In fact, they can even handle animated Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.
Network presentations using up to five projectors
Up to five VPL-FW41 projectors can be connected to a network, with the image from a single PC projected on each of them. This feature is ideal for both large venues and multiple rooms in which images have to be projected from various locations.
Network presentations almost anywhere
By manually registering your PC's IP address to the VPL-FW41 projector, images can be projected not only across the country, but across the globe. This is ideal for applications such as distance learning and long-distance corporate communication.
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment) automatically sizes and adjusts a PC image display for optimum picture performance. This allows users to concentrate on their presentations, rather than time-consuming technical adjustments.
