Bright, Stylish, and Easy to Use the Affordable VPL-E Series of Data Projectors is an Excellent Choice for Both Education and Business
Sonys VPL-E Series data projectors are extremely affordable and ideal for a number of applications, especially in education and business. These projectors are not only stylish, but they also provide a high brightness of 2500 lumens (VPL-EX50) and 2000 lumens (VPL-EW5/EX5/ES5). Capable of projecting high-quality images, the VPL-EX50 and VPL-EX5 offer native XGA resolution, while the VPL-ES5 offers SVGA resolution. If widescreen projection is desired, the VPL-EW5 offers WXGA resolution. These projectors come equipped with a short focal-length lens enabling large-screen projection from a very short distance. Because these projectors were designed primarily for education and business, they are very easy to use and provide security features such as a password authentication system and a security bar. In addition, they offer a variety of interfaces such as a monitor output, audio output, RS-232C for control (VPL-EW5/EX50/EX5 only), and High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMITM) for digital video projection (VPL-EW5 only). All of these features combine to make the VPL-E Series ideal for both classrooms and conference rooms.


High Picture Quality and Bright Images
By combining a new generation of inorganic LCD panels that utilize Sonys BrightEraTM technology* with a 3LCD projection system, the VPL-EW5, VPL-EX50, and VPL-EX5 offer high picture quality and brightness. The VPL-EW5, VPL-EX5, and VPL-ES5 offer native WXGA (1280 x 800), XGA (1024 x 768), and SVGA (800 x 600), respectively, and a brightness of 2000 lumens. And the VPL-EX50 offers native XGA resolution and a higher brightness of 2500 lumens.
Short Projection Distance
The VPL-E Series comes equipped with a short focal-length lens, which makes it possible to project images from a short distance. For example, an 80-inch* image can be projected from a distance of approximately 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) and 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) by the VPL-EX50/EX5/ES5 and VPL-EW5, respectively.
* Viewable area measured diagonally.

OFF & Go

Once a presentation is complete, the VPL-E Series can be moved to the next location immediately by simply turning the projector off and unplugging in the AC power cord. There is no need to wait for the fan to turn off.

High Security (Control Panel Key Lock, Password Authentication System, Security Bar, and Kensington Lock)
Both a control panel key lock and a password authentication system are available to help prevent unauthorized use of the projector. Also, a built-in security bar and Kensington lock can be used to help prevent theft.
* "BrightEra" is a brand name for the category of next-generation LCD panels that have pixels with large aperture ratios and that adopt inorganic alignment films. Sony is the first manufacturer to succeed in developing this technology for a High-Temperature Polysilicon (HTPS) TFT LCD panel.

3LCD Projection System

Because the VPL-E Series uses a 3LCD projection system, projected images are bright and natural. 3LCD is a projection system using three LCD panels. This system provides high light transmission and excellent color reproduction. It also provides smooth gradients in dark areas, and even helps prevent color breakup.

Unique Body Design

The VPL-E Series adopts a unique design with a body shape that broadens towards the front. In addition, the VPL-E Series projects images upwards on the screen and therefore requires minimal tilt adjustment.

Input Flexibility (Multiscan Converter)

These include composite, S-Video (Y/C), and analog RGB/component via the HD D-sub 15-pin interface, and digital video via the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI, VPL-EW5 only). In addition, the unit can accept computer signals from VGA up to SXGA+ (1400 x 1050).
