Sony VPL-CH375 projector

PARK RIDGE, N.J. — Sony is expanding its line of high-definition business projectors with a series of cost-effective models delivering high image quality and enhanced flexibility.

The new data projectors include the VPL-CH375, VPL-CH355 and VPL-CH350 models. Each has WUXGA (1,920 × 1,200-pixel) resolution and uses a new 0.64-inch 3LCD BrightEra panel to produce a brightness up to 5,000 lumens color light output and sharp image reproduction. The WUXGA resolution makes the projector a good choice for displaying full HD videos and high-resolution computer signal formats.

The projectors are Sony’s first light-weight WUXGA projectors, weighing less than 13 pounds. This weight, combined with convenient installation support features, make the new models work in spaces where conventional high-end installation projectors are not the right choice. Installation support features include: fine lens shift, HDBaseT input (for VPL-CH375 and CH355), corner keystone adjustment, H/V keystone adjustment and 2 HDMI inputs to enable a wide range of installation options.

“These projectors offer style and innovation, while delivering high brightness and high performance for classrooms, lecture halls, conference rooms and meeting spaces,” said Wally Mohri, marketing manager for LCD projectors at Sony Electronics. “Users looking for high resolution image, installation flexibility, longer life and easier maintenance will find these to be ideal and affordable solutions.”

Two of the new models — VPL-CH375 and VPL-CH355 – have a built-in HDBaseT interface for easier connectivity and reduced total system costs.

HDBaseT capabilities allow installers and integrators to reduce their number of cable runs by transmitting video, audio, control and IP over a single 100m Cat5e/6 cable. Using fewer cables means fewer signal extenders and receiver boxes, resulting in a decreased risk of failure points.

The new models are designed to reduce total cost of operations, delivering optimum energy efficiency, with low power consumption.
