The VPL-EW345 projector features a 1.6x flexible standard zoom lens and a variety of inputs, including two HDMI ports and a USB Display controller connection, allowing it to fit into a broad range of applications. With extended lamp life of up to 10,000 hours, downtime and maintenance costs are drastically minimized. This wireless-ready projector allows you to add an optional Wi-Fi module to enable presenters and audiences to wirelessly share content from PC, Mac, or mobile devices.
Vertical Keystone Adjustment
The projector can correct keystone distortion by ±30% for installation adjustment to the screen. 1
With digital zoom, presenters can enlarge a selected area of a computer-sourced image on the screen up to four times.
Six Picture Modes
All the projectors in the E-series family have six picture modes available for optimum picture quality, including: Dynamic, Standard, Game, Blackboard, Cinema, and Presentation. Combined with three brightness modes, presenters can select the most suitable mode according to the picture source and environment.
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
When a computer is used as a picture source, APA automatically optimizes phase, pitch, and shift values. These can also be adjusted manually.
Powerful 16W Audio
The built-in 16W speaker (mono) lets your audience hear video soundtracks without the need for additional amplification.
Picture Muting / Audio Muting
If there is a need to black out the image or turn off the audio from the projector, a single button-press on the remote can mute audio and image at the same time, while a "mute audio" button can take out just the sound.
Customized Input Naming Labels
Define your own input labels, such as BD Player, PC, and Document Camera, making it easier to see what devices are connected and being used.
Direct Power On/Off
With this function, there is no need to go through the Standby mode when powering up the projector. The projector can be set to activate as soon as power is supplied.
Built-In Security Measures
The E-series projectors have a package of security measures, including password protection and physical anti-theft anchor points.
Add the optional IFU-WLM3 USB wireless module to connect with a PC, Mac, or mobile devices.
Up to 10,000-Hour Lamp Life
Reduce lamp replacements and associated maintenance time and costs thanks to a longer lamp life.
Filter Cleaning Cycle at the Same Time as Lamp
The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to maintenance.
Presenters can easily select power-saving eco modes, with the most energy-efficient mode accessible through a single button-press, and further adjustments available through the menu.
Eco Picture Mute (Instant Off / Instant On)
The eco Picture Mute feature reduces power consumption down to 30%, saving lamp hours. There is no need to waste time by powering the projector completely off and turning it back on.
Auto Dimming Mode
The new E-series projectors automatically adjust the brightness depending on the image. The darker the image, the less energy is used by the lamp. 2
Eco Lamp Dimming
When this feature is selected, the projector can reduce power consumption and brightness by 10 to 15%. After a user pre-set time, the brightness and power consumption will reduce to 30% power usage, with instant 100% brightness returning as soon as a new signal input is detected.
When the projector is shut down, an eco achievement indication gauge appears to show the presenter how well they have used the projector. The more eco features that have been used, the better the eco green leaf mark. 3
Various Picture Modes
VPL-E300 Series projectors have six available picture modes for correct picture quality: dynamic, standard, presentation, blackboard, whiteboard, and cinema. With these picture modes and three brightness modes, you can select the most suitable combination according to the picture source and environment.
Network Presentation Portable Edition
The portable edition function allows you to install the Network Presentation application on a general-purpose USB mass storage device. This enables guest users to run the application via the USB device without having to install it on their own computers.
The VPL-E300 Series projectors can temporarily disable video signal output via the supplied Remote Commander unit, allowing blank image projection with low power consumption using lamp control technology.
Auto Mode (Auto Brightness Adjustment Function)
The brightness of the lamp's output is automatically adjusted depending on the brightness of the projected image, to avoid unnecessary power consumption. When showing darker images that don't require high brightness, lamp output decreases.
Lamp Dimming Function
The VPL-E300 projectors are equipped with a lamp dimming function. After ten seconds of a static signal feed, the lamp dims by approximately 15%, which is hardly noticeable. If the projectors is left powered on while not in use, after a set period of time it will automatically dim the lamp to as low as approximate 30% of original brightness, significantly reducing energy consumption.
ECO Mode Key
With a single push of the ECO Mode key on either the projector or the supplied Remote Commander unit, users can select an energy-saving setting from the ECO menu.
Network Presentation (LAN)
When the projector is installed in a LAN, presentations can be projected from any PC or Mac on the network (up to four users can project simultaneously, while up to eight can connect to one projector). A tablet or smartphone can also be connected at the same time.
Three-Way Wireless Connection
VPL-E300 Series projectors support three different methods of wireless connection, so you can achieve the system best suited to every situation.
Simple Installation with HDBaseT
HDBaseT is a multi-signal transmission system via a single cable, simplifying the installation and cutting total system costs by reducing cabling requirements and the number of signal extender/receiver boxes.
With an advanced air discharge system, Sony's whisper-quiet fan emits less than 35 dB during operation.
You can customize the input label that appears in the input on-screen menu, giving you a clear understanding of which equipment is connected.
Rear Side Lamp Access for Easy Maintenance
The lamp change position has shifted to the back of the unit, enabling easy access when the projector is hanging from a ceiling mount.
