Sony VPL-CW256 projector WXGA 4500 lumens Product no.: 9000-0017-3882 Warranty period: This product comes with a 3-year warranty.


In both business and education, cutbacks are common, as each pound saved is a pound earned. Good thing then that you can save considerably on your operational costs with the Sony VPL-CW256 projector WXGA 4500 lumens. Employ all of its energy-saving features, and the lamp will last for up to 5,000 hours! Don't let the power-saving prowess of this projector fool you, though - when it comes to visuals, it really delivers the goods. At a native resolution of 1200 x 800 pixels, a contrast ratio of 3700:1 and a maximum clarity of 4500 lumers, excellent projection quality is ensured.

Characteristics of the Sony VPL-CX256 projector WXGA 4500 lumens

Thanks to a lamp life of 5,000 hours, you can use the VPL-CX256 for ten hours on each business day for 100 consecutive weeks, before you have to replace the lamp. That's almost two years! The projector also boasts a number of interesting functions, such as a Freeze button, which enables you to freeze the frame while you're looking up something on your computer or laptop (a presentation or an image, for instance), without your audience watching your every move. Warping is another great function, which allows you to adjust the corners and sides of your projections when the projector is not aimed squarely at the projection screen.

Other great features

The VPL-CX256 projector comes with a small built-in 10-watt mono speaker, which can be a real life-saver when your regular audio system fails. Thanks to Sony's ECO technology, the projector is exceptionally energy-efficient. You can decide for yourself how much power you want to save, by reducing the light output - the quality of your visuals won't suffer one bit. In the least energy-efficient mode, the VPL-CX256's lamp still lasts for approximately 3,000 hours.
