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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
