Sony has updated its range of education and corporate projectors. The D-Series, E-Series and S-Series have been refreshed with a range of new integration-friendly features and wireless communications capabilities with tablets and smartphones via the Pixelworks’ VueMagic Mobile Presenter application.
Sony’s latest Interactive Ultra Short Throw S-Series projectors incorporate auto calibration, teaching features, video capture and video conferencing abilities provide the presenter with greater options for interactive presentations.
All new released projectors across the ranges now have wireless communication capabilities with tablets and smartphones. VueMagic Mobile Presenter enables users to make presentations or share content using most mobile and tablet devices with iOS version 5.1.1 or Android (from October). This means that presentations can be run off tablet and smartphone devices of all sizes by teachers, students and other audiences.
Other features of the new D-Series, E-Series and S-Series projectors are similar to those announced in the line-ups last year. These include an auto lamp dimming function, which enables the projectors to intelligently detect if it is left on with a static signal being fed. The projectors also incorporate convenient eco-conscious features that cut energy consumption and extend lifetime, making them more productive and cost efficient. This includes an Auto Brightness Adjustment Function, where the brightness of the lamp’s output is automatically adjusted depending on the brightness of the projected image.
The popular Picture Mute function also reduces power consumption to 30%, saving lamp hours and costs. There’s also no need to completely power-off or turn back on which increases power consumption and can be time-consuming.
The new models in the D-Series are; VPL-DX126, VPL-DW126 and VPL-DW146; the new models in the E-Series are; VPL-EX226, VPL-EW226, VPL-EX246, VPL-EW246, VPL-EX276 and VPL-EW276; the new models in the S-Series are; VPL-SW526C and VPL-SW536C. All models are now available.
