Designed for corporates and small to
medium businesses to enable them to work
smarter and create business-driving impact,
the new VPL-DX120, VPL-DW120 and
VPL-DX140 are the perfect desktop projectors
delivering clear crisp, bright presentations in
any corporate meeting room.
Weighing just 2.5kg, these professional projectors
give businesses the most practical balance of great
performance, portable simplicity and are environmentally
conscious. Easy to carry, set-up and power down, they are
ideal for small to medium-sized rooms.
The DX120 delivers 2600lm colour brightness with a 1.47 1.77:1 throw ratio. The VPL-DW120 offers WXGA resolution
at 2600lm colour brightness with a 1.44 - 1.87:1 throw
ratio. The VPL-DX140 offers a step-up with 3200lm colour
brightness and a 1.37-1.80:1 throw ratio.
Furthermore, in common with all Sony projectors, the
projectors feature the Sony BrightEra 3LCD inorganic panel
technology that delivers higher picture quality, substantially
brighter images, higher efficiency, better contrast,
consistent colour stability and longer durability and usability.
All three models feature three brightness modes for different
uses – High for presentations in bright meeting rooms
(3200/2600/2600 colour brightness), Standard for everyday
use (2300/1900/1900 colour brightness) and Low for video
in darkened rooms (1900/1500/1700 colour brightness).
Other Features Continued
Digital Zoom
With Digital Zoom, users can enlarge a
selected area of a computer-sourced
image on the screen up to four times.
Six Picture Modes
Both these projectors have six available
picture modes for correct picture
quality; Dynamic, Standard, Game,
Living, Cinema and Presentation. With
six picture modes and 3 brightness
modes combined, users can select the
most suitable picture/brightness mode
according to the picture source and
environment for the perfect image.
3LCD BrightEra Technology
The Sony BrightEra inorganic TFT 3LCD
panels deliver improved panel light
resistance, higher resolution, high
brightness and increased panel reliability.
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
Picture Muting / Audio Muting
If there is a need to blackout the image
or turn off the audio from the projector,
all it takes is a single button-press on the
remote control. One button will mute
audio and image at the same time.
There is also a separate “mute audio”
button for audio-only muting.
Audio Switcher Facility
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.
the viewing audience being aware.
Freeze the current image and users can
use their PC independently of the display
from the projector.
Off and Go
At the end of a presentation, users 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 supplied.
Built-in Security Measures
The projectors have a package of security
measures, including password protection
and physical anti-theft anchor points.
Picture Freeze Function
Picture Freeze is useful during
presentations where users need to look at
other material on their PC’s screen without

Key Features
ECO Mode Key
Users can easily select power-saving ECO
Modes. The most energy-efficient mode is
accessible though a single button-push,
with further adjustments available through
an easily understood menu system.
ECO Picture Mute - (Instant Off/Instant On)
The new ECO Picture Mute feature reduces
power consumption down to 30%, saving
cost and lamp hours. This feature can be
used in the boardroom as instant off/instant
on in-between presentations. There is no
need to power completely off and turn
back on, which is time consuming.
Auto Dimming Mode
The VPL-DX120, VPL-DW120 and VPL-DX140
automatically adjust brightness depending
on the image. The darker the image, the
less energy used by the lamp. (Maximum
70% lamp power reduction based on the
Other Features
ECO Lamp Dimming
These projectors (if this function
is selected) can reduce power
consumption and brightness by 1015%. After a user pre-set time, the
brightness and power consumption
will reduce to 30% power usage, with
instant 100% brightness returning as
soon as a new signal input is detected.
ECO Gauge
When the projector is shut down, an
ECO achievement indication (gauge)
appears to show the user how well
they have used the projector. The
more ECO features that have been
used, the better the ECO green leaf
mark. (Calculated by the use of ECO
functions and actual lamp wattage.)
XGA Resolution
The VPL-DX120 and VPL-DX140 have
a native XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 screen
resolution panel, perfect for presentations
direct from a laptop or PC.
WXGA Resolution
The VPL-DW120 has a native WXGA (1280 x
800) 16:10 screen resolution panel, perfect
for presentations direct from a laptop or PC.
7000 Hours Lamp Life
A new driving scheme reduces gap
expansion which minimises brightness
gradation. A new cooling system allows
uniformity in the temperature of the glass
bulb which prevents the glass from clouding.
Vertical Keystone Adjustment
The projectors can correct keystone
distortion by +/- 30% for perfect installation
adjustment to the screen. (Note that since
this is an electronic correction, it will reduce
the picture quality slightly.)
