Sony Debuts E-Series Projectors

Sony expanded its line of 3LCD portable projectors with seven new E-series models, 4300 lumens to 3100 lumens with a choice of XGA and WXGA resolutions for the education and corporate markets. The new projectors are designed for applications including mid-sized classrooms and meeting rooms.

The new E-series includes the following seven models: VPL-EW578, VPL-EW575, VPL-EW455, VPL-EW435, VPL-EX575, VPL-EX455 and VPL-EX435.

The new models feature a 20,000:1 contrast ratio spec and Sony’s 3LCD BrightEra technology and all of them 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 models are an ideal partner for today’s integrated AV/IT environments. They expand customers’ connectivity options with dual HDMI ports for laptops, Chromecast and Miracast connections and an IP Control function to easily operate multiple projectors in one room at the same time, making them ideal for shared spaces. The Wi-Fi option enables presenters to share content wirelessly directly from laptops and the VPL-EW578 even comes with an HDBaseT connection.

The VPL-EX575, VPL-EX455 and VPL-EX435 are planned to be available in April, while the VPL-EW578, VPL-EW575, VPL-EW455 and VPL-EW435 are planned to be available in May. Here are the details.
