stylish “blend-in” design
VPL-FH31
& VPL-FH36
Packing the most advanced projector technologies into a “blend-in” design,
the VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 are excellent choices for universities, corporates,
museums and medical (DICOM) applications. Delivering a dramatic colour
brightness of 4300 and 5200 lumens respectively and ultra high-quality
images with WUXGA resolution, the projectors offer peace of mind operation,
amazing installation flexibility and hassle-free maintenance in a stylish design
that blends into any decor.
The maintenance cycles of the lamp and cleaning filters are
synchronised and exceptionally long, which cuts maintenance time
and cost. In addition, both projectors are designed to deliver a low
total cost of ownership and include environmentally conscious features,
thanks to their long-lasting lamp and low power consumption.
High Picture Quality
High Picture Quality and Bright Images
By combining a new-generation optical system
that uses Sony’s BrightEra™ Long Lasting Optics
technology* and a 3LCD projection system,
the VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 offer high picture
quality in WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution and
a high brightness of 4300 and 5200 lumens
respectively.
* BrightEra with Long Lasting Optics is the 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 polarisation plates
to greatly enhance reliability.
Warping Function
Portrait Mode
The image warping feature allows an 8 point (4 corners and
4 sides) image adjustment for convex or concave projected
surfaces. Making adjustments is easy with the remote control
and the on-screen operating menu.
The VPL-FH31 (only) can be installed on its side (fan side
down) for any portrait signage application.
Corner Correction

or
Each corner can be independently
adjusted to ensure the image is
projected squarely.
Each side can be independently
adjusted to project an image onto any
type of curved screen.
Edge Blend
Multiple projectors have the ability to project an single
seamless image onto a screen (wall) creating an exciting
visual event or retail or corporate signage application.
Excellent Total Cost of Ownership and
ECO-friendly Features
Long-lasting Lamp
By incorporating a newly developed high-performance lamp
and advanced lamp-control technology, the projectors offer
the recommended lamp replacement time of approximately
4,000 hours* (VPL-FH31) and 3500 hours* (VPL-FH36).

Installation Advantages
Lens Shift Functions
The VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 are equipped with horizontal
and vertical lens shift functions for greater installation
flexibility. Using this function, the position of the projected
image can be moved vertically by up to 60% and
horizontally from -32% through to +32%. Images can be
easily adjusted to the desired settings during installation.
Low Power Consumption
The projectors offer remarkably low power consumption,
allowing users to make significant savings on electricity
expenses.

Features
Excellent Throw Ratio Coverage for
Old Projector Replacement
The 1.6x zoom and 1.39 to 2.23 throw ratio
standard lens enables installation flexibility when
replacing an existing projector with the VPL-FH31
or VPL-FH36, there’s no need to change ceiling
mount positions. For applications where more
than a standard lens is needed, the projectors
are compatible with the optional VPLL-Z1024PK
and VPLL-Z1032PK accessory lenses designed for
Sony’s current VPL-FX40 Series.

12-bit 3D Gamma Correction
The VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 incorporate 12-bit
3D Gamma Correction circuitry to perform
highly accurate gamma correction, achieving
smoother gradations and richer grey-scale.
Picture-by-Picture
With this feature, users can project two different
images at the same time, greatly expanding
creative possibilities and enabling exciting new
applications.

ECO MODE
ECO MODE Key
Eco Mode optimises combinations
of the following functions.
With a single push of the ECO MODE key on either the projector or the
supplied Remote Commander™ unit, the user can select an energy-saving
setting in the ECO Mode menu.
• Lamp mode
“High / Standard”
- Saving the consumption of
lamp wattage.
• Power Saving mode
“Lamp Cutoff / Projector Standby”
- When set to “On“, the projector
goes into power saving mode
if there is no operation for 10
minutes without any signal input.
L amp Cutoff; The lamp goes off. The lamp
lights again when a signal is input or any
key is pressed.

The centered lens provides symmetry for
a balanced installation and makes set up

Trouble-free Maintenance
Easy Lamp and Filter Maintenance
When the air filter must be cleaned, a timely message is clearly displayed on
screen. The lamp and the filter are accessible from the same side, so their
replacement can be performed without uninstalling the projector. With typical
usage, replacement filters have an approximate 15000-hour cleaning cycle.
This is achieved by a Quad Filter System enabling both the lamp and the
filters to be replaced at the same time, even in tough environments, saving
maintenance time and cost.
Picture Muting Function via Built-in
Mechanical Shutter
Mutes the projection of images on
screen via a built-in mechanical
shutter. This function can be easily
operated with just the touch of a
button on the supplied Remote
Commander unit

DICOM GSDF Simulation*
The VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 are equipped with a new gamma mode, called
DICOM GSDF Simulation. This is ideal for viewing digital medical imagery for
non-diagnostic applications.
