Bright , Upright
and Compact.
The Sony VPL-PX1
LCD Data Projector.
Stand with total confidence in
your presentations, knowing that
the Sony VPL-PX1 is standing right
there with you.
The Sony VPL-PX1 delivers high
quality visuals with true XGA
resolution and a stunning 1000
ANSI lumens brightness. Just plug
in and your presentation is up and
running right away. Its magnesium
alloy body and unique upright
construction are the results of
designing for durability and
space-efficient operation.
The Sony VPL-PX1 equips you with
what you need to enhance your
visual communications. Standing
out in a crowd. The Sony VPL-PX1.
Features
1000 ANSI lumens brightness
Simple setup
The combination of a new 120 W UHP
lamp of improved efficiency and the
micro lens array on the LCD panels
results in a picture brightness of 1000
ANSI lumens. You project a highquality, high- contrast image, even in
high ambient light conditions.
The built-in 1.3x zoom lens of the VPL-PX1 provides great set-up flexibility, allowing
you to position the projector in the most convenient location. The VPL-PX1 accepts
a wide variety of input signals, with 37 preset signal
formats covering any video format used world-wide and
PC signals up to SXGA. Just plug in your computer with
the supplied cable and you get a great picture with
no need for complex adjustments.
Up r i g h t d e s i g n
Functional construction
The VPL-PX1 has a unique upright
design that requires a minimum
amount of space. Compared to
conventional A-4 size projectors, the
VPL-PX1 takes up only about half as
much space on your desktop.
In addition, the projector's high lens
position provides an optimal shooting
angle.
The VPL-PX1's lightweight magnesium alloy
body was specifically designed to withstand
the rigors of road trips. A built-in shutter
keeps the zoom lens safe and sound at
Lens
all times, so there is no lens cap to lose.

Thanks to three Sony 0.9-inch, true
XGA (1024 x 768) resolution LCD
panels, the VPL-PX1
reproduces details with
great clarity.
F u l l re m o t e c o n t ro l f u n c t i o n
With the supplied remote control unit, you can make your presentations
flow smoothly. The built-in laser pointer function allows you to direct
the audience's attention, and there's even an integrated mouse receiver
RM-PJM600
for point-and-click control of your connected computer.
User friendly menus
I nnovative optics
The VPL-PX1 benefits from Sony's
innovative optical technologies --- like
fly-eye light integrators, that focus
more light down the optical path to
your screen. They smooth out hot
spots, eliminate corner shading and
minimize color shifting.
On-screen menus guide you every step of the way in controlling
your projector --- and in your choice of seven languages:
English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese and Chinese.

Despite its compact design, the personal projector comes with built-in stereo
speakers --- so you have great sound as well as brilliant images.
