Sony VPL-FX500L data projector

VPL-FX500L
Versatile Installation Projector
Peace of Mind Operation, Installation Flexibility,
and Hassle-free Maintenance
with a Stylish Unobtrusive Design
The VPL-FX500L offers peace of mind operation by using
a twin-lamp system which adopts a redundant lamp and
provides economical operation. It also delivers amazing
installation flexibility and hassle-free maintenance in a stylish
design that blends into any decor.
This projector has a very wide lens shift range, enabling
excellent flexibility when installing the unit and adjusting
the image. Lamp and air filter maintenance cycles are
synchronized and exceptionally long compared to single-lamp
system and dual-lamp system by cutting maintenance time
and cost. In addition, the VPL-FX500L is designed to deliver a
low total cost of ownership, and includes eco-friendly features
such as long-lasting lamps and low power consumption.
Packing the most advanced projector technologies into a low-profile design, the VPL-FX500L is an excellent
choice, delivering a dramatic brightness of 7,000 lumens and high-quality images with XGA resolution.
FEATURES
Twin-lamp System for Peace of Mind Operation
One lamp can output a total of 7,000 lumens but a second
lamp is built in to provide automatic backup should the
primary lamp fail. The two lamps are alternately used,
achieving a recommended lamp replacement time of
approximately 8,000 hours, saving maintenance time and
cost.
Twin-lamp system image
Single-lamp system:
When there’s a problem with the lamp,
the presentation has to stop.
Dual-lamp system:
When there’s a problem with
one lamp, brightness is halved and
presentation's impact is diminished.
Twin-lamp system:
Even when a lamp has a problem,
there is no worry to continue
the presentation.
What happens if one lamp suddenly fails during an important presentation?

"Blend-in" Design
The VPL-FX500L showcases a newly designed low profile
chassis, so the projector appears to blend into the ceiling or
wall on which it is mounted. The connector panel is located
on the front of the unit so its cables cannot be seen by the
audience.
Optional High-resolution Lenses
The optional VPLL-Z4015, VPLL-Z4019, VPLL-Z4025, and
VPLL-Z4045 are known as All Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lenses.
Each with a large diameter and fine pitch, they ensure crisp
pictures.

High Picture Quality
High Picture Quality and Bright Images
By combining a new-generation optical system that uses
Sony's BrightEra™ with Long Lasting Optics technology* and
a 3LCD projection system, the VPL-FX500L offers high picture
quality in XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and a high brightness
of 7000 lumens.
* BrightEra with Long Lasting Optics is the Sony brand name for a new
generation of optical system, which is a more advanced version of Sony's
original BrightEra technology. In addition to the adoption of LCD panels
that have pixels with large aperture ratios and inorganic alignment layers,
BrightEra with Long Lasting Optics technology also uses an inorganic layer
for polarization plates to greatly enhance reliability.
3LCD Projection Offers Brilliant Color Performance
The VPL-FX500L adopts a 3LCD projection system incorporating
three LCD panels. This system enables the projector to present
bright and natural images.
Long-lasting Lamp
By incorporating newly developed high-performance lamps
and advanced lamp-control technology, the VPL-FX500L delivers
a recommended lamp replacement time of approximately
8,000 hours.*

Low Power Consumption
The VPL-FX500L offers remarkably low power consumption,
allowing users to make significant savings on their electricity
expenses.
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 in the ECO Mode menu.

12-bit 3D Gamma Correction
The VPL-FX500L incorporates 12-bit 3D Gamma Correction
circuitry to perform highly accurate gamma correction,
achieving smoother gradations and a richer gray scale.
I/P Conversion and Film Mode
The video signal processing technology that Sony has
incorporated in the VPL-FX500L offers I/P conversion and 2-3
pull-down to generate high-quality images with outstanding
clarity.

Installation Advantages
Hassle-free Maintenance
Lens Shift Function
The VPL-FX500L is equipped with a lens shift function, which
is controlled from the projector control panel or the supplied
Remote Commander unit. Using this function, the position
of the projected image can be moved vertically by -96% to
+96% and horizontally by -64% to +64%. Images can be easily
adjusted to the desired settings during installation.
Lamp and Filter Synchronized Maintenance
When the lamps and air filter are due for replacement, a timely
message is clearly displayed on screen. The lamps and air filter
are accessible from both sides, so their replacement can be
performed without uninstalling the projector. Like the lamps, the
replacement filter has an approximate 8,000-hour replacement
cycle in standard mode. This synchronized replacement is
achieved, even in tough environments, by a Quad Filter System
Plus*, saving maintenance time and cost.
