Good TCO, Energy-efficient Design and
Operational Convenience
The VPL-E200 Series delivers a full range of brightness options to meet virtually
any type of education or business projection environment
Sony’s VPL-E200 Series data projectors are economically designed for optimum energy efficiency, thanks to
their Auto Power Saving function with lamp control technology, energy saving design, and long-lasting lamp.
Additionally a variety of network functions such as Web Control and Network Presentation can be performed.
Rich inputs and outputs are provided, to suit a broad range of applications.
The VPL-EW275, VPL-EW245, and VPL-EW225 present clear and dynamic images in native WXGA resolution on a
widescreen with high brightness (up to 3700 lumens) while the VPL-EX275, VPL-EX271, VPL-EX245, VPL-EX241, VPL‑EX225,
and VPL-EX221 provide high picture quality in native XGA resolution, also with up to 3700 lumens brightness.*
Delivering superb images along with simple operation, Sony’ s VPL-E200 Series projectors provide an excellent
balance between quality and cost, ideal for use in education or business.
* VPL-EW275, VPL-EX275 & VPL-EX271: 3700 lumens; VPL-EX245 & VPL-EX241: 3200 lumens; VPL-EW245: 3100 lumens; VPL-EX225 & VPL-EX221: 2700 lumens;
VPL‑ EW225: 2600 lumens.
FEATURES
Good TCO, Energy-efficient Design
• Blank
The VPL-E200 Series projectors can
temporarily disable video signal output. This
function can be easily operated with just the
touch of a button on the supplied Remote
Commander unit. In addition, this function
allows blank image projection with low power
consumption using lamp control technology.
Auto Power Saving Function
• Auto Mode (Auto Brightness Adjustment Function)
The brightness of the lamp’s output is automatically
adjusted depending on the brightness of the projected
image, to avoid unnecessary power consumption.
When showing darker images that don’t require high
brightness, lamp output decreases.

• Lamp Dimming Function
The VPL-E200 Series projectors are equipped with a lamp
dimming function. After 10 seconds of a static signal feed, the
lamp dims by approximate 15% which is hardly noticeable.
If one of these projectors is left powered on while not in
use, after a set period of time it will automatically detect
no change of signal input and will dim the lamp to as low
as approximate 30% of original brightness to significantly
reduce energy consumption.

Energy Saving design
The VPL-E200 Series projectors offer 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 from the ECO Mode menu.
Long-lasting Lamp
By incorporating a high-performance lamp and advanced
lamp-control technology, the VPL-E200 Series projectors deliver
an extremely long lamp replacement time of 7,000 hours.*
* Approximate recommended period, in low mode.
Lamp and Filter Synchronized Maintenance
The expected lamp maintenance time for each model can
reach up to 7,000 hours depending on the selected lamp
mode, and dust filters require the same maintenance interval.
Synchronizing the timing of lamp and filter maintenance
enables users to reduce the numbers of “ladder climbs” for
maintenance.
Broad Range of Applications
Convenient, Simple Projector Adjustment
The projectors’ 1.6x* flexible standard zoom lens allows the
projector to fit wide range of installations, and simplifies
replacement of an existing projector.
* The VPL-EX221 is a 1.2x zoom projector; the VPL-EW225, VPL-EX241, and
VPL‑EX245 are 1.3x zoom projectors.

A Variety of Network Functions
– Via LAN Cable or Wirelessly
Web Control
When VPL-E200 Series projectors are installed in a local area
network (LAN), their versatile network functions are available
to any PC on that network.
Installation can be via a LAN cable, and there is no need to
install any additional network software on the PC.
Network Presentation
When VPL-E200 Series projectors are installed on a LAN,
presentations can be projected from any PC on the network
– whether connected via a LAN cable or wirelessly.*
* The optional IFU-WLM3 is required.
Up to four users can project PC images simultaneously;
up to eight users can connect to one projector.

Multiple Inputs & Outputs
VPL-E200 Series projectors include a high wattage speaker
(16 W)* and a variety of interfaces (2xRGB, HDMI, S-Video,
RS‑232C, RJ-45, USB Type-A, USB Type-B, and Microphone
inputs*) that accept a wide variety of inputs signals, greatly
expanding system connection possibilities.

WLAN (wireless)
Superb Picture Quality
Brilliant Color Performance
The VPL-E200 Series projectors adopt a 3LCD projection system
incorporating three LCD panels. This system enables each
projector to present bright and natural images.
By combining an advanced generation of inorganic LCD
panels that utilize Sony’s BrightEra™ technology with a 3LCD
projection system, the VPL-E200 Series projectors offer high
picture quality and brightness.
USB Media Viewer
By attaching a USB memory device* to the VPL-E200 Series
USB connector, the operator can directly project data files
stored on the USB memory device.
Supported file formats are JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF, and GIF.
* USB memory device is not included.
12-bit 3D Gamma Correction
The VPL-E200 Series projectors incorporate 12-bit 3D gamma
correction circuitry to perform highly accurate gamma
correction, achieving smoother gradations and a richer gray
scale.
Film mode
Smooth, high-quality images are reproduced using a highperformance processor for I/P conversion.
Source signals suitable I/P conversion are processed
automatically, and extremely accurate images are
reproduced.
