Sony added seven new E-Series projectors to its line-up of 3LCD portable high brightness projectors at ISE 2017. The new models range in brightness from 3,100 lumens to 4,300 lumens and are available in either XGA or WXGA resolutions for the corporate and education markets.
These new B2B projectors have been specifically designed for mid-sized classrooms to meeting rooms, where display solutions are unsuitable due to budget constraints or where larger image sizes are needed.
The new models feature a 20,000:1 contrast ratio and Sony´s 3LCD BrightEra technology, which promises to deliver high image quality and natural, vivid colour reproduction. The projectors all have a compact design and an array of functions, such as low fan noise, wireless connectivity and auto power on, to ensure smooth, quiet and reliable ease of use.
The new E-series includes the following 7 models: VPL-EW578, VPL-EW575, VPL-EW455, VPL-EW435, VPL-EX575, VPL-EX455, VPL-EX435.
The new E-series models come with a range of connectivity options, including dual HDMI ports for laptops and Miracast. An IP Control function allows users to operate multiple projectors in one room at the same time, making them ideal for shared spaces. The wireless option enables presenters to share content directly from laptops and the VPL-EW578 even comes with an HDBaseT connection – the smallest chassis projector in the market to include this connectivity feature.
“Despite the increased uptake of displays in recent years and a changing market, B2B projectors still remain in high demand,” notes Robert Meakin, European product manager, Sony Professional Solutions Europe.
“The continued evolution of our popular E Series is Sony’s commitment to our partners to provide a full featured projector line up. The new E500 & E400 series bring to the market a robust and cost effective range that is easy-to-use and reliable while offering good picture quality for mid-sized classrooms and meeting room environments,” he added.
The VPL-EX575, VPL-EX455 and VPL-EX435 will be available from April, while the VPL-EW578, VPL-EW575, VPL-EW455 and VPL-EW435 will be available from May.
