A powerful 4200 Lm XGA projector with a high contrast ratio of 2000:1. The VPL-FX30 integrates into existing setups via retrofit features like wide zoom standard lens and lens shift function. Compatibility with current interchangeable lenses enables a wide range of options – from long distance projection in large auditoriums to short distance rear projection applications. ECO-friendly longer lamp life means less energy consumption, less cost and less time spent up on a ladder making replacements.

With the VPL-FX30’s wide zoom standard lens, it’s possible to keep the same mount position if upgrading from an older model. A centered lens makes it easy to calculate symmetric installation. Compatibility with current optional lenses (VPLL-Z1024 & VPLL-Z1032) accommodates a wide range of throw requirements.
Superior Image Quality
An outstanding Color Light Output of 4200 Lm and a high contrast ratio at 2000:1. Wider Lens Shift Range minimizes picture degradation and distance recalculating caused by using keystone correction. 12bit 3D Digital Gamma Correction reproduces gradation in greater detail. High Resolution via All Range Crisp Focus Lens with HD compatibility delivers crisp images. Film Mode technology generates high quality images through the Interlace to Progressive conversion processor. Signals of film-originated sources converted through 2-3 and 2-2 pull down process are detected, resulting in extremely accurate image reproduction.
Maintenance made EASY
When it’s time to replace the lamp, a message will appear onscreen. Lamp replacement and filter cleaning can be performed quickly, easily and at the same time, without uninstalling the projector, since both are accessible from the rear. And Sony’s dust protection system makes for an advanced long filter cleaning cycle, which means less frequent filter changes.
Replace lamps less frequently with a long lamp life of 4000/5000H! Sony’s optical engine, BrightEra with Longer Lasting Optics provides improved optical efficiency: more light is projected onto the screen at less lamp power, requiring smaller lamps – smaller lamps are less expensive, use less electricity and produce less heat.
Save energy costs! With the push of the “Eco Mode” button on projector or Remote Commander, Lamp mode saves the consumption of lamp wattage; Power Saving mode kicks in if there is no operation for 10 minutes without any signal input; Standby mode can reduce power consumption in standby.
With its white color and connector panel located on the front, creating a flat surface on top and back, the VPL-FX30 was designed to blend in visually. Fan noise is moderate.
