The VPL-SX125 XGA projector is an ideal choice for close projection applications in the corporate and educational markets. It 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 easy to install in small or difficult spaces, and has easy to operate controls. Excellent contrast, consistent color stability, high picture quality and longer durability will improve visibility and enhance teaching quality.

Maximum 2500 lumens brightness with high, standard and low modes
The VPL-SX125 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.

0.62 throw ratio
The VPL-SX125 offers a 0.62:1 throw ratio that produces a 80" diagonal screen size image from only 3.2 feet away from the screen.

3LCD 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.

XGA widescreen resolution
The VPL-SX125 has a color light output of 2500 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.

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.

Front exhaust
With a front exhaust system, users sitting behind the projector are not affected by expelled hot air and fan noise.

Easy to operate control panel layout
The VPL-SX125's control panel is on top of the device for easy operation, with large, easy-to-locate controls.

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
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.

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

Multiple picture modes
The VPL-SX125 has six picture modes (dynamic, standard, game, living, cinema and presentation) that can be selected to suite the nature of the source material.

Built-in security measures
The VPL-SX125 has a package of security measures, including password protection, and physical anti-theft anchor points.
