Sony has added a high-brightness model to its line of LCD business projectors for fixed network installations. The VPL-FX41 is an XGA projector that emits 5,200 lumens and completes a product line-up that consists of the VPL-FX40 and VPL-FE40 4,000-lumen models, says the company.
Each of the series’ projectors is designed for networked fixed installations in education, government, corporate, house of worship, and hospitality applications. All are available with optional lenses that allow them to meet a range of short- or long-throw projection needs as well as high-impact multimedia presentations.
The VPL-FE40 offers SXGA+ resolution, while the VPL-FX41 and VPL-FX40 offer native XGA resolution. Each model features 3LCD technology and uses a combination of imaging technologies to enhance presentation quality. Sony’s BrightEra technology produces a higher aperture ratio to deliver brighter images than previous High Temperature Poly-Silicon LCD-based systems, says the company, which allows the projectors to achieve increased resolution with quieter fan noise.
