VPL-EX120
An energy-efficient 2600 Lumen XGA projector
• Free telephone helpdesk support in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
• Collection and delivery anywhere in EU, Norway
and Switzerland.
The core strengths of Sony’s E-Series projectors are
performance, convenience and economy. The VPLEX120 delivers these with exceptional image quality
at a low cost of ownership.
Sony’s next generation inorganic panels (BrightEra)
and 3LCD projector system deliver higher picture
quality, substantially brighter images, higher efficiency, better contrast, consistent colour stability not to mention longer durability and usability.
The 1.3 – 1.82 throw ratio and 1.3 times optical zoom
allows the VPL-EX120 to be installed in a wide range
of environments and, where possible, can even re-use
existing ceiling suspensions.
A long lamp life, (up to 6000 hours) and synchronised
lamp and filter change means a reduction in maintenance costs and gives you exceptionally low levels of
down-time.
With a single push of the New ECO MODE button on
the projector itself, (or the supplied Remote Commander™), users can switch simply to the eco settings. The VPL-EX120 has three brightness modes
(High, Standard and Low) allowing the user to control
the brightness and power consumption of the projector to suit the environment and conditions they are in.
Sony has unrivalled experience in projector design
and manufacture for the home, business, education
and in the cinema. Simple to maintain and with direct
controls for all power modes, the E-series range of
projectors from Sony are picture-perfect choice for
smart boardrooms and classrooms.

Features
Eco Mode Key
Users can easily select power-saving Eco Modes. The
most energy-efficient mode is accessible though a
single button-push, and further adjustments are available through an easily-understood menu system.
Front Exhaust
With a front exhaust system, users sitting behind the
projector are not affected by expelled hot air and fan
noise.
Easy to operate control panel layout
The VPL-EX120’s control panel is on top of the device
for easy operation, with large, easy-to-locate controls.
Built-in upward beam angle and keystone
adjustment
Normally, the front angle of a projector has to be adjusted to raise the beam to the screen. In the VPLEX120, this initial adjustment is built-in and includes
a corresponding keystone adjustment, saving two
setup stages.
Automatic Keystone Adjustment
The projector can detect keystone distortion and can
correct it automatically. (Note that since this is an
electronic correction, it will reduce the picture quality
slightly).
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
When a computer is used as a picture source, APA
automatically optimises Phase, Pitch and Shift values.
These can also be adjusted manually.
Auto Input Search
Auto Input Search detects which input has an incoming signal, and automatically switches to it. This
makes it easier for users to set up the projector prior
to making a presentation.

Picture Muting
Filter replaced at the same time as lamp
If the picture needs to be turned off, all it takes is a
single button-press on the remote control. This will
mute audio at the same time. There is also a separate
“mute audio” button for audio-only muting.
The filter only needs to be changed when a new lamp
is fitted, potentially halving disruption due to
maintenance.
Audio switcher facility
The VPL-EX120 has six picture modes (Dynamic,
Standard, Game, Living, Cinema and Presentation)
that can be selected to suite the nature of the source
material.
To avoid the need for a separate audio switcher, the
projector can be used to select between two audio
sources, routing them via a variable audio output to
the room amplification system.
Picture Freeze Function
Picture Freeze is useful during presentations if you
need to look at other material on your PC’s screen
without the viewing audience being aware. Freeze the
current image, and you can use your PC independently of the display from the projector
Digital Zoom
With Digital Zoom, if you are displaying a computersourced image, you can enlarge a selected area of the
screen image by up to four times.
Multiple Picture Modes
Built-in security measures
The VPL-EX120 has a package of security measures,
including password protection, and physical anti-theft
anchor points.
Off and Go
At the end of a presentation, you can turn off the
power supply to the projector immediately, instead of
going through a “power down” cycle.
Direct Power On/Off
With this function, there is no need to go through
“Standby” mode when powering up the projector. The
projector can be set to activate as soon as power is
applied.
