Advanced energy-saving features
Advanced lamp technology enables robust energy-saving features. For example, greater brightness control in Auto Light Dimming mode saves considerable energy when the projector is left on without being used. During projection, Auto Lamp Mode automatically adjusts light output to suit the projected scene. When you need to mute the picture temporarily, light output can be completely deactivated to minimise energy consumption.
High image quality 3LCD BrightEra natural and vivid colour images
Widescreen WXGA (1280 x 800) 16:10 screen resolution, 3LCD BrightEra natural and vivid colour images, plus various Picture Modes for optimising image quality, make the projector one of the best in its class. Thanks to the optical system projecting three basic colours constantly, the projector offers excellent light efficiency, ensuring colourful and bright images. Sony’s BrightEra panels deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability. High colour reproducibility is important especially when using colourful content, such as materials used in classrooms.
Various picture modes for optimal picture quality
The projector has six available picture modes for correct picture quality: Dynamic, Standard, Presentation, Blackboard, Game, and Cinema. With six picture modes and three brightness modes combined, the user can select the most suitable picture/brightness combination according to the picture source and environment, to create the optimal image.
