Features Benefits:
Wide Variety of Lenses The VPL-FX500L ships without a lens, and offers backwards compatibility with a wide variety of existing Sony lenses – allowing easy replacement to exisiting projectors.
Twin Lamp System For worry-free operation, a second lamp is built-in to provide automatic back-up should the primary lamp fail. Since the two lamps are alternately used, the total expected lamp life can total up to approximately 8000 hours.
Superior Image Quality The VPL-FX500L offers an outstanding Color Light Output of 7000 Lm and a high contrast ratio at 2500:1. 12bit 3D Digital Gamma Correction reproduces gradation in greater detail. 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 side. And Sony’s dust protection system makes for an advanced long filter cleaning cycle, which means less frequent filter changes.
Economical Benefits Replace lamps less frequently with a long lamp life of 6000/8000H! 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.
Eco-Friendly Features 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.
"Seamless" Design Outfitted with a white and flat cabinet and a connector panel located on the lower face front – hiding the connectors and cables – the VPL-FX500L gives audiences the impression that the projector is blended into the ceiling when mounted. Fan noise is moderate.
Other Convenience Factors Closed captioning; digital zoom; picture muting; network control and monitoring.
