Features
High brightness, high picture
quality
High brightness
Adopting Sony's unique optical system
provides a high-efficiency optical system. It
allows the 190 W UHP lamp to give a light
output of 3000 ANSI lumen.
High picture quality
Three super-high-aperture 0.79-inch XGA
panels with approximately 790,000 effective
pixels, produce a resolution of 1024 × 768
dots (horizontal/vertical) for RGB input, and
750 horizontal TV lines for video input.
Variety of network presentations
(VPL-CX86 only)
Air Shot
Air Shot features data transmission from a
computer to the projector via a wireless
LAN.
Use of the supplied wireless LAN card (for
the projector) and the USB wireless LAN
module (for a computer) enables a wireless
presentation.
A Simple Mode is also available that does
not require the setting up of the network and
wireless LAN configurations, allowing you
to start a wireless presentation easily if you
are using the wireless LAN for the first time.
For more information, refer to “Operating
Instructions for Air Shot” and “Projector
Station for Air Shot Help” on the supplied
CD-ROM.
Presentation without connecting a
computer
Use of a “Memory Stick” enables you to run
a simple presentation without connecting a
computer.
The “Projector Station for Presentation”
software is supplied, with the projector
allowing you to create files for a
presentation.

Features
“Projector Station for Presentation” in
Help.
Presentation tool with a laser pointer
The supplied presentation tool allows you to
use a laser pointer, or to change a slide to the
next or previous page during your Air Shot
presentation.
Quiet presentation environment
Low fan noise reduces distraction allowing
you to run an optimum presentation even in
a quiet environment.
Easy setup and simple operation
Intelligent Auto-setup function
Simply press the power key, and the
projector automatically performs the setups
required before use. The projector opens the
lens protector, corrects the V Keystone,
detects a signal, and sets optimum
conditions for projection.
Powered zoom/focus equipped
The projector is equipped with a powered
zoom and powered focus lens, allowing you
to adjust the size and focus of an image with
the Remote Commander away from the
projector.
Short focal lens
The projection distance is very short,
approximately 2.4 m (7.8 feet), when
projecting an 80-inch image, which allows
projection on a larger screen even in a
limited space.
Side Shot
The projector supports the Side Shot feature
(horizontal trapezoidal correction function),
enabling projection from the side of the
screen. Installation becomes possible in a
wider variety of locations.
Off & Go feature
The cooling fan built into the projector will
work even after the power is turned off and
the power cord is disconnected. This enables
you to move the projector to another location
immediately after turning it off.
Versatile installation capability
Direct Power On/Off function
The AC power of the entire system can be
directly turned on/off with a breaker or other
switch without pressing the power key on the

This projector has 45 types of preset data for
input signals (the preset memory). When a
preset signal is input, the projector
automatically detects the signal type and
recalls the data for the signal from the preset
memory to adjust it to an optimum picture.
The memory number and signal type of that
signal are displayed on the INFORMATION

preset data through the INPUT SETTING
menu.
This projector has 20 types of user memories
for Input-A into which you can save the
setting of the adjusted data for an unpreset
input signal.
When an unpreset signal is input for the first
time, a memory number is displayed as 0.
When you adjust the data of the signal using
the INPUT SETTING menu, it will be
registered in the projector. If more than 20
user memory items are registered, the
newest memory always overwrites the oldest
one.

“Side Shot” and “V Keystone” Adjustments
With “Side Shot” (horizontal keystone adjustment) provided for the projector, you can project
the picture from the side of the screen.
When projecting with “Side Shot” adjustment only, you can adjust the horizontal distortion of
the screen to the maximum using “Side Shot.”
When projecting with both “Side Shot” and “V Keystone” (vertical keystone adjustment), you
can adjust the vertical (
) and horizontal (
) distortion of the screen.

Notes
• If “V Keystone” is set to “Auto,” the “Side Shot” adjustment area may be narrow.
• “V Keystone” on the INSTALL SETTING menu is set to “Auto” at the factory, and the vertical
distortion of the picture is automatically corrected. However, the distortion may not be perfectly
corrected depending on the room temperature or the screen angle. In this case, set this item to
“Manual,” and correct the distortion using input values.
