The VPL-SW535 widescreen WXGA projector is an ideal choice for ultra close projection applications in the corporate and educational markets. The model has a low brightness mode which reduces power consumption and extends the lamp lifetime, which means lower operating costs across the board.

This projector is ideal for small or difficult spaces - its ultra short throw ratio can produce a 80" diagonal screen size image from only 1.9 feet away from the screen. It also has easy to operate controls. Excellent contrast, consistent color stability, high picture quality and longer durability will improve visibility and enhance teaching quality.

Maximum 3000 lumens brightness with high, standard and low modes
The VPL-SW535 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.

0.27-0.29:1 throw ratio
The VPL-SW535 offers a 0.27-0.29:1 throw ratio that produces an 80" diagonal screen size image from only 1.9 feet away from the screen.

3LCD BrightEra technology
Sony's 0.75-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-SW535 has a color light output of 3000 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.

Long 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 though a single button-push and further adjustments are available through an easily understood menu system.

ECO lamp dimming
This projector (if function is on) can reduce power consumption and brightness by 10-15% without user detection during a input image. After a user pre-set time, the brightness and power consumption will reduce to 30%.

ECO picture mute
Picture mute reduces power consumption down to 30% power usage, saving 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 does increase power consumption and is time consuming.

Digital/HD ready
HMDI input means the VPL-SW535 can accept high definition digital signals from PC or video source.

Automatic keystone adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and can 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.

Six picture modes
The VPL-SW535 has six available picture modes for correct picture quality; dynamic, standard, game, living, cinema, and presentation. Six picture mode and 3 brightness mode combined, the user can select most suitable picture/brightness mode according to the picture source and environment for perfect image.

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.

Filter cleaning at the same time as lamp replacement
The filter only needs to be cleaned when a lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance.

Web control and monitoring/e-mail report
A built-in web browser allows the user or AV manager to check a projector status remotely. Power on/stand-by, input/output, lamp usage (hours) can be controlled. An e-mail address can also be set to notify lamp exchange/replacement or any unexpected problems.
