Sony releases new portable projectors

New models reduce standby power consumption

Sony Australia has added four new micro-portable business projectors to expand its E-series line of video projection systems.

The new VPL-EW5, VPL-EX50, VPL-EX5 and VPL-ES5 are successor models to the VPL-EX4 and VPL-ES4, launched last year, and all four have a "3-LCD panel system" that delivers images of up to 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness.

For the first time in the E-series, the VPL-EW5, VPL-EX50 and VPL-EX5 utilize Sony's BrightEra imaging technology which incorporates an inorganic alignment layer within the LCD panel, making the display panels more resistant to damage from UV energy while allowing for increased brightness and contrast.

These projectors deliver consistently vibrant, high resolution images with enhanced detail, achieving up to WXGA and XGA resolutions with a high contrast ratio of up to 900 to one.

Sony is pitching the new projectors for use in small to medium-sized venues such as boardrooms, classrooms and at home.

The "Off & Go" function allows the AC power cord to be unplugged once the unit is turned off without having to wait for the projector to cool down.

All four projectors reduce power consumption to below three watts in standby mode.

In addition, halogenated flame retardants are also not used in the production of the projector chassis and printed wiring boards which can generate dioxin, a harmful carcinogen, when burnt.

The new projectors are priced from $999 to $1795.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
