Discontinued Item

The VPL-SW525C offers simultaneous dual-touch annotation capability on the projection screen with the use of supplied pen devices and drawing software. Combined with its ultra short throw projection, it is a great fit for launching interactive lessons in a classroom or establishing instant communication space in a corporate environment. The VPL-SW525C delivers a large image from an extremely short distance (i.e.; an 80-inch image can be achieved from 19 inches distance from the screen), which helps presenter to avoid glare from the projector when standing in front of the screen. It offers WXGA projection with powerful 2500 lumens color light output. Auto lamp dimming, max 6000h expected lamp replacement timing, V:4% H:2% optical lens shift and supplied wall mount bracket helps reduce total cost of ownership.

Low total cost of ownership
The model has a low brightness mode which reduces power consumption and extends the lamp lifetime, lowering overall operating costs across.

Ease of operation
This projector is ideal for small or difficult spaces - its ultra short throw ratio can produce an 80" diagonal screen size image.

Bright, clear presentations
Excellent contrast, consistent color stability, high picture quality and longer durability improve visibility enhancing teaching quality.

Maximum 2500 lumens brightness with high, standard and low modes
The VPL-SW525C 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.

3LCD BrightEra technology
Sony's 0.75-inch BrightEra inorganic TFT 3-LCD panel delivers improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability.

WXGA widescreen resolution
The VPL-SW525C has a color light output of 2500 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.

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 a user-friendly menu system.

Eco picture mute
Picture mute reduces power consumption down to 30% power usage, saving both cost and lamp hours. This feature can be used in the education market as instant off /instant on in-between class changes, avoiding the need to power off completely and then turn back on - which increases power consumption and is less time consuming.

Digital/HD ready
HMDI input means the VPL-SW535C can accept high definition digital signals from PC or video source.

Automatic keystone adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and correct it automatically.

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/audio muting
If there is a need to blackout the image or turn of the audio from the projector, all it takes is a single button-press on the remote control. One button will mute audio and image 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, enabling the user to look at other material on their PC's screen without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the current image, and users can use their PC independently of the display from the projector.

Digital zoom
Digital zoom allows you to enlarge a selected area of a computer sourced image you are displaying - up to four times.

Off and go
At the end of a presentation, you can turn off the power supply to the projector immediately, avoiding 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.
