The new Sony
VPL-FX51
Data Projector
–where style meets
innovation.
simulated picture
Super-high 5200 ANSI lumens brightness
and excellent contrast for your presentations
and video images
In auditoriums or business conferences, for seminars
or classrooms, the VPL-FX51 lets you captivate
audiences with breathtaking image quality. Its highbrightness output of 5200 ANSI lumens* with a high
contrast ratio, enables you to give high-impact multimedia
presentations.
Seen from any angle, this beautifully designed projector brings an
elegant and stylish addition to any display environment. Its
outstanding functionality – including Sony-originated software and a networking capability –
means you can show your presentations and image files from anywhere with ease, and
impressive results.
*ANSI lumens is a measuring method of the American National Standards Institute IT 7.228. Since there is no uniform method of measuring
brightness, specifications will vary among manufacturers.
Features
Outstanding Brightness of 5200 ANSI Lumens
The Sony VPL-FX51 Data Projector achieves an outstanding
brightness of 5200 ANSI lumens and high contrast ratio for
dynamic, large-screen displays. The high aperture ratio, 1.3-inch
LCD panels, together with a Micro Lens Array, provide
significant light-transmission efficiency. By combining this
advanced Sony LCD technology with a
new 300-W UHP lamp, high-impact
images come to life with stunning color
fidelity.
Elegant Design
The VPL-FX51 not only projects beautiful images, but also features
a sophisticated design. The exhaust and connector panel are located
on the front of the unit so the projector blends in smoothly with its
installation environment. Finally, the lens is center mounted for the
ultimate in symmetry and beauty, allowing it to be used in even the
most esthetically demanding environments.
High Quality and Performance
Dynamic Detail Enhancer (DDE) For High-Quality Video Images
This unique Sony video-enhancing technology generates highquality images of outstanding clarity.
For video sources, I/P (Interlace/Progressive) conversion is applied
to interlace signals to project clear and sharp progressive images.
When displaying film-originated sources, signals converted by 2-3
pull down* are detected, and each frame of the original film is
I/P Conversion
accurately reproduced.
The VPL-FX51 projects images with a high degree of accuracy by
adopting new driver circuitry that enables it to accept digital
signals directly.
* 2-3 pull down is only available for 60-Hz signals (NTSC).

RGB Enhancer
3D Gamma Correction
The RGB Enhancer can be adjusted from the On-Screen
Display, for enriched and crisp
RGB image reproduction.
10-bit 3D Gamma Correction circuitry performs highly accurate
gamma correction to give uniform image color and brightness
that extend to the corners of the screen.
3D Digital Comb Filter
Thanks to the Sony-originated 3D Digital Comb Filter
that separates Y signals from C signals with great
accuracy, fine detail and image boundaries are
recreated accurately.
Features
Installation Flexibility
Power Zoom/Focus/Picture Shift
Digital Keystone Adjustment
The Zoom, Focus and Picture Shift functions of the supplied
power-operated lens can be controlled both from the projector
control panel and the supplied remote-control unit*. Images can
be easily adjusted to the desired settings.
Keystone distortion of up to ±20 degrees can be digitally
corrected via the On-Screen Display. This enables detailed
images to be projected with their correct geometry, even when
installation space is limited.
* Only the standard lense includes motorized Zoom and Focus. The Picture Shift
function is supported by all lenses.
Back-to-Front Tilt
The VPL-FX51 can be
tilted 90 degrees upwards
or downwards. This
flexibility greatly expands
the application possibilities.
Stacking
Capability
Direct Power On
ex.) Rear projection system
When applications require
double the light output, the
VPL-FX51 can be twinstacked*. Pictures from the
two projectors are then
matched using the Picture
Shift function on each unit.
This selectable feature enables the projector to be turned on and
off via a hard contact closure such as a wall switch or curcuit
breaker. This is an excellent feature for environments which do
not have sophisticated control systems, such as auditoriums and
conference halls in museums and schools.
Variety of Lenses
The VPL-FX51 is supplied with a power lens as standard, with
three alternative lens types available as options. This choice of
lenses enables the VPL-FX51 to be installed in a wide range of
applications – from long-distance projection in large auditoriums
to short-distance rear projection applications.
* The optional VPLL-FM21
projection lens cannot be used
when the PL-FX51 is stacked.
Various Inputs
The VPL-FX51 accepts a wide variety of input signals, including
video, S-video, DTV and HDTV, as well as computer signals up
to UXGA (fV: 60 Hz), expanding its system-connection
possibilities. It also has a DVI input, so users can take advantage
of the direct transfer of digital and analog signals from a PC.

Network Capability
Network Connections
Presentations from a Networked PC
The VPL-FX51 includes a 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet
interface and a PC Card slot for wired/wireless connection to the
network. This network connection gives the VPL-FX51 great
flexibility and efficiency.
A PC on the same network can communicate with the VPL-FX51,
via a web browser. This enables users to give presentations
through the network without connecting the projector and PC
using an RGB cable. Presentation files can also be stored in the
projector memory prior to a meeting or event simply by sending
files to the projector across the network.

Multi-Function Remote-Control Unit
APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
The supplied remote-control unit is useful for both
projector setup and delivering presentations. Functions
such as lens control, mouse control, Digital Zoom and
Freeze can be operated from this wireless control
unit, while the built-in laser pointer is a useful tool
for more effective presentations. In addition,
function keys on the remote-control unit
provide easy startup of network functions, and
network applications can be launched at the push
of a button.
Dot phase and image size or shift can be automatically adjusted
to their optimal settings simply by pressing the APA button.
Two settings can be
saved simultaneously
(Presentation Viewer, Image
Viewer, Internet Browser, etc.)
Easy Maintenance
The projector's required air filter cleaning cycle coincides with
the recommended lamp replacement cycle, so maintenance can
be performed on both at the same time.
Low Fan Noise
The VPL-FX51 realizes low fan noise for smooth, undisturbed
presentations.
Screen keyboard
Digital Zoom
With the 4-times Digital Zoom, one section of the presentation can be
zoomed in for a closer look, to convey a message more clearly.
Freeze
