400W Replacement Lamp for Sony VPL-VW 100 Projector This is an excellent lamp, but is very expensive, and not easy for the average person to install. Great Home Printer!! This printer has saved us hundreds of dollars in ink--and the speed and LACK of maintenance required has been great too!

Received Lamp quickly. Was easy to navigate through site and figure out what I needed. Our old bulb was only about 18 months old. I hope the lifespan on the new one is better.

The VPL-C Series A New and Powerful Line of Projectors Designed to Meet the Needs of Medium-Sized Corporate Conference Rooms and School Classrooms
The new Sony VPL-C Series is composed of six projectors, each specifically designed to match your requirements for powerful presentations in both the classroom and conference room. The VPL-CW125 boasts WXGA resolution, which is ideal for presentations from a wide-screen source such as a WXGA PC or a 16:9 aspectratio video. The rest of the VPL-C Series of projectors has native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution for projecting high-quality images. The brightness range of these projectors is 2700 to 3500 lumens depending on the model, enabling bright presentations even in ambient light conditions. Furthermore, a newly developed lens provides crisp and clear images with minimal aberration. Designed with installation flexibility and easy maintenance in mind, the new Sony VPL-C Series is a delight for system integrators and maintenance staff. These projectors have multiple video and audio interfaces, enabling them to be configured with a variety of equipment. They are also designed for easy lamp replacement and filter cleaning. The VPL-CW125, VPL-CX155, and VPL-CX125 each have a network interface that enables presentations and maintenance over IP networks. A number of other useful features includes vertical and horizontal keystone*1 correction, smart APA, and direct power on/off. For classroom settings, security features such as a control panel key lock, password authentication system, and a security bar can prove indispensable. The attractive, bright, and flexible VPL-C Series of projectors is ideal for use in medium-sized corporate conference rooms, school classrooms, and several other environments.
Horizontal keystone correction is available on the VPL-CW125, VPL-CX155, and VPL-CX125 only.

FEATURES
High Picture Quality and Bright Images
The VPL-CW125 incorporates three highaperture 0.74-inch LCD panels with WXGA resolution so that images from WXGA sources are projected with the correct aspect ratio. This highly efficient projector achieves a brightness of 3000 lumens from a 200 W lamp. The rest of the projectors in the new VPL-C Series lineup provide native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution with a brightness of 3500, 3000, or 2700 lumens depending on the model. In addition, all of these projectors incorporate a newly designed ACF (Advanced Crisp Focus) glass lens for projecting crisp and beautiful images right to the very corners of the screen (Fig. 1). Choose the right projector to match the environment.

3LCD Projection System

Because the new VPL-C Series uses a 3LCD projection system, projected images are bright and natural. 3LCD is a projection system using three LCD panels, which is also known as HTPS (High-Temperature Polysilicon). This system provides high light transmission and excellent color reproduction. It also provides smooth gradients in dark areas, and even helps prevent color breakup.
Installation Flexibility and Easy Maintenance
Multiple Interfaces for Flexible Configurations The VPL-C Series of projectors accepts a wide variety of input signals, including component and composite video, S-Video (Y/C), and computer signals up to SXGA+ (fV: 60 Hz) providing multiple source options. They also have a monitor output and audio inputs and outputs, providing flexibility for classroom installations. The VPL-CW125, VPL-CX155, and VPL-CX125 models each have a network interface for even more flexibility, enabling presentations and control via a network. Easy Lamp Replacement and Filter Cleaning

Conventional Projectors

(Minimal Maintenance) (Fig. 2) When a lamp needs to be replaced in any of the VPL-C Series projectors, a message will appear on the screen to inform the user. Filter cleaning is recommended at the same time as lamp replacement to greatly reduce the number of maintenance events compared to conventional projectors. The lamp is easily accessible from inside the rear cover, while the filter can be reached from the front of the projector. This means that lamp replacement and filter cleaning can be performed without uninstalling the projector.

ID Function for Multi-Projector Installation
VPL-CW125 VPL-CX155 VPL-CX125
With a built-in ID function, the VPL-C Series of projectors can be controlled independently using a single Remote Commander unit. For multi-projector installations in a single room, this feature is indispensable during both installation and operation. Vertical and Horizontal Digital Keystone Correction Both vertical digital keystone correction and the Side Shot*3 (horizontal keystone correction) functions are available on the VPL-C Series of projectors. These allow images to be projected with their correct geometry when space is limited or when the projector is placed off-axis from the center of the screen.
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 VPL-C Series projectors. A built-in security bar or KensingtonTM lock can also be used to help prevent theft.
Useful Remote Commander Units
Multi-Function Remote (Fig. 3)
The supplied Remote Commander unit for the VPL-CW125, VPL-CX155, and VPL-CX125 is useful for both setting up the projector during installation and changing settings for a presentation. This unit has buttons for direct input selection, so users do not have to toggle through the entire range of inputs to select the

desired one. With the projector ID function, each projector in a multiple-projector installation can be controlled independently from a single remote. Compact Card-Type Remote (Fig. 4)
VPL-CX150 VPL-CX120 VPL-CX100
A number of functions on the VPL-CW125, VPL-CX155, and VPL-CX125 can be performed remotely via a web browser.*4 For example, the projectors current status can be verified and simple controls can be performed, such as powering the unit on or off. Also, the system can be set up to send automatic e-mail reports to designated recipients for scheduled maintenance, including projected lamp life and error reports.

For simple operation, the VPL-CX150, VPL-CX120, and VPL-CX100 are supplied with a card-type Remote Commander unit that can be used to adjust projector settings such as digital zoom and audio volume or to activate APA, picture muting, and picture freeze functions.
Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher is required.
Quiet and Efficient Operation
Thanks to a new and unique Sony cooling system, the VPL-C Series operates with a very low fan noise, allowing audiences to concentrate on the speaker during presentations. The efficient cooling system minimizes cabinet/exhaust air temperatures and dust ingress, which ultimately improves reliability.

High-speed Image Transfer over IP Networks Because these projectors employ efficient compression and transmission techniques, they can receive and project images via IP networks for effective presentations from any networked PC. In fact, they can even handle animated Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. Network Presentations Using up To Five Projectors Up to five projectors can be connected to a network, and the image from a single PC can be projected by each of them. This feature is ideal for both large venues and multiple rooms in which images have to be projected from various locations. Network Presentations Almost Anywhere By manually registering a PCs IP address to these projectors, images can be projected not only across the country, but across the globe. This is ideal for applications such as distance learning and long-distance corporate communication.

Notes on Installation and Usage

Unsuitable Installation

Do not install the unit in the following situations. These installations may cause malfunction or damage to the unit.

On LCD projector

The LCD projector is manufactured using high-precision technology. You may, however, see tiny black points and/or bright points (red, blue, or green) that continuously appear on the LCD projector. This is a normal result of the manufacturing process and does not indicate a malfunction.

Poorly ventilated

Allow adequate air circulation to prevent internal heat build-up. Do not place the unit on surfaces (rugs, blankets, etc.) or near materials (curtains, draperies) that may block the ventilation holes. When the internal heat builds up due to the block-up, the temperature sensor will function with the message High temp.! Lamp off in 1 min. The power will be turned off automatically after one minute. Leave space of more than 30 cm (11 7/8 inches) around the unit. Be careful that the ventilation holes may inhale tininess such as a piece of paper.

Highly heated and humid

Avoid installing the unit in a location where the temperature or humidity is very high, or temperature is very low. To avoid moisture condensation, do not install the unit in a location where the temperature may rise rapidly.

The projected image size is the one when Aspect on the Signal menu is set to Full 2. When Aspect on the Signal menu is set to other than Full 2, black bands appear at the top and bottom or right and left of the screen. When Aspect in the Signal menu is set to 4:3, the projected image size (diagonal) will be approximately 84 % of Full 2 size. When Aspect in the Signal menu is set to 16:9, the projected image size (diagonal) will be approximately 99 % of Full 2 size.

If V Keystone is set to Auto, the Side Shot adjustment area may be narrow. V Keystone on the Installation menu is set to Auto at the factory, and the vertical distortion of the picture is automatically corrected. However, the distortion may not be perfectly corrected depending on the room temperature or the screen angle. In this case, set this item to Manual, and correct the distortion using input values.
