Product Description:

Sony VPL-EW578 4300 Lumen WXGA 16:10 LCD Projector

The VPL-EW575 projector is ideal for mid-sized classrooms and meeting rooms. Quiet, compact and powerful, it delivers detail-packed WXGA images with 4,300 lumens colour light output and high 20,000:1 contrast ratio that can be seen clearly even in bright rooms and with larger projection screens, with Sony's 3LCD technology assuring natural, vivid colours. Image quality is further improved compared with previous models, with a new colour/white balance setting for crisp reproduction of on-screen text and a new 'Vivid' picture mode ensuring even richer, more vibrant colours. The VPL-EW575 is an ideal partner for today's integrated AV/IT environments, expanding your connectivity options with dual HDMI ports and Direct USB Display connection. A convenient input label function makes life simpler, confirming on screen the name of connected devices. Add the VPL-EW575 to a network and see presentations from up to four connected PC/Mac computers simultaneously. Slip in an optional Wi-Fi dongle and present directly wirelessly from laptops. A range of energy-saving features plus up to 10,000 hours recommended lamp replacement time contribute to low ownership costs. Routine maintenance is quick and easy with a convenient rear lamp access feature.


Bright, clear images with maximum 4,300 lumens colour light output
• With a 4,300 lumen maximum light output (in high mode), the VPL-EW575 delivers crisp, high-contrast presentations that can be seen clearly in bright rooms or on larger screens. There’s a choice of three brightness modes to suit any environment, from bright daylight to darkened rooms.

3LCD BrightEra technology
• The efficient 3LCD panel system is enhanced by advanced BrightEra™ technology for impressively bright, consistent, high resolution images with excellent colour accuracy and impressive reliability.

WXGA resolution
• WXGA (1280 x 800) 16:10 display resolution gives plenty of crisp detail: ideal for making presentations direct from a laptop, mobile device or DVD player.

Powerful 16W audio
• The powerful built-in 16W speaker (mono) lets your audience hear video soundtracks with no need for additional amplification.

Energy efficient with long-lasting lamp life up to 10,000 hours
• High-performance lamp technology offers reduced ownership costs plus reduced maintenance, with a recommended lamp replacement time of approx. 10,000 hours (with brightness in low mode - may vary depending on environment or how the projector is used).

Advanced energy-saving features
• Advanced lamp technology enables a range of energy-saving features. Auto Light Dimming mode saves energy when the projector is left on without being used. Auto Picture Mode automatically adjusts light output to suit the projected scene. Touching a button on the remote mutes the picture temporarily, dramatically reducing power consumption.

Quiet operation
• Near-silent projector fan ensures discreet, unobtrusive operation in classrooms and meeting rooms. Lamp Mode : High 35dB / Standard 33dB / Low 29dB

Auto power on
• Save time and start presenting faster: the projector automatically turns on when signals are detected from a connected PC.

Quick go
• Don't waste time when you're in a hurry to leave the room: turn off the projector and unplug immediately, with no lengthy waiting for cool-down.

Networked and wireless presentations
• Project presentations from PC or Mac via network and wireless. Up to four users can project PC/Mac images simultaneously, while up to eight users can connect to one projector. The Projector Station for Network Presentation application for Windows/Mac is included.

Control and management from any networked PC
• Projector functions and status can be managed and monitored remotely from any networked PC, using the included Projector Station for Network Control application.

Remote Control app for iOS/Android
• Download the free Projector Remote app and control the projector from anywhere in the room with your handheld device, with simple easy-to-read buttons on your phone or tablet screen.

USB media viewer
• Slip in a USB drive and display photos, images and graphics with no PC needed.

Dual HDMI inputs
• Two HDMI input terminals make it easy to connect HDMI-equipped devices like PCs and media streaming devices.

IP control sync for easy system expansion
• Control signals (power on/off, input select) from a master projector can be distributed over an IP network to additional 'sub' projectors.

USB Display function for easy one-cable PC connection
• Present pictures and audio from a connected PC or Mac with a single USB cable - you don't even need to install a software driver.

Customised input naming labels
• Define your own input labels like 'BD Player', 'PC' and 'Document Camera', making it easier to see on screen what devices are connected and being used.

Easy maintenance
• Convenient lamp access at the rear of the projector body makes lamp swaps simpler when the projector is hanging from a ceiling mount.
