Could Sony’s New Pico Projector Save Your Business Meeting In A Pinch?

There are a few trends with technology that we all begin to notice. For example, when technology seemingly gets smaller and smaller. We see it with more mobile technology, but it has affected even larger hardware like desktops. We have seen the tablets and smartphones get smaller, skinnier, lighter, and sleeker. It comes with the advancements of technology. We will find ways to make our tech work more effectively while also making our tech smaller and less energy efficient. This has also affected the projector market believe it or not. The idea of pocket projectors is always something that can be seen as beneficial. The fact is, mobility with our tech means it becomes more accessible, and more accessibility means more areas for the product to function without being limited.

Every time a new product is introduced, the limitations of that product are brought to light pretty quickly. Most of the pico projectors have had problems in the past regarding their resolution display. They have been limited to how well they are able to handle projecting in overly bright areas, and the overall sharpness of the picture. Sony has done their best to further the quality and production of the pico projector technology. Since we know how quickly technology advances, it looks as if Sony might be able to provide a pocket projector that is finally free from the issues of previous makes and models.

How will this new projector make this possible though? Well, Sony conveniently has their own image processing system. The system uses something called LBS, or Laser Beam Scanning, to work their display module. By utilizing this particular display format, the new projector will be able to create HD image quality and a free-focus feature. The free-focus feature guarantees that the crisper image displayed, will retain its clarity even at distances up to 10 feet away. The free-focus will remain this way, despite the projection surface you are using at that time. With a 1920 x 720 pixel resolution, it may not be considered FULL HD, but it’s still much better than what has been offered on the market currently.

Sony is also developing the product to work in tandem with your other mobile devices, such as your smartphone or tablet. They are also seeing how attachments, such as battery power sources and Wi-Fi hardware could help the usefulness of the product. It might not be the biggest, or add much to your mobile tech collection, but it could definitely help out in the office or at home.

Having this freedom of mobility with something as essential as a projector is a huge step forward for displays. If you think about it, you are essentially carrying around a pocket HD TV around with you. Should your projector in the office decide to stop working in the middle of your presentation, you can pull this bad boy out and continue on. It could also be used to provide contrast information on whatever topic you may be covering in your meeting. Needless to say, having one of these in your tech arsenal would provide endless benefits.

Turn Your Wall Into A 147 Inch TV Thanks To Sony!

Bigger is better when it comes to viewing right? IMAX sure isn’t complaining about their revenue. Having a big screen TV is always nice, but projectors have always been able to fully utilize space. Projectors normally can be very aggravating with set up though. Mainly their placement has to be specific in regards to where you want your image to display. Not to mention all of the wiring complications. When setting up the projector, it normally has to be mounted on a wall or on the ceiling, then wired properly, and finally, the hole in the wall has to be fixed and repainted. Expenses just adding up. Now, however, there is a new projector that looks to do away with all of the extra hassle.

Sony has always been known for coming out with great products, and the Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector is no exception.

The largest TV out on the market currently is 108 inches. While that is quite the TV, remember that a projector can make your entire wall become a TV. This particular projector can actually make your wall into a 147 inch TV, as long as your wall is big enough diagonally.

The 4K display of this projector really becomes noticeable at that size as well. There have already been a myriad of reports regarding 4K vs the HD we already have currently. At certain sizes and viewing distances, 4K isn’t even going to be noticeable to the normal human eye. This alone has caused many people to rethink any purchase they make when 4K is involved. However, when the image is being stretched to that particular size, the detail begins to really show. Think about it. The 4K stands for the range of roughly 4,000 pixels being shown on screen. If they have enough room to not be so compressed, the detail will remain in the image due to the high pixel count. The Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector makes the 4K worth it.

The projector itself already comes with a specific housing unit. With it being housed in a credenza, it can be pushed up against the wall and out of the way. When activated, the projector will actually display the image on the wall above it, instead of shooting the image across the room. This justifies the “short throw” name. This alone can do away with the annoying “shadows” cast when someone stands up directly in front of a projector feed.

The Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw was introduced at this past CES event, and it came with quite the price tag. When it drops in the summer time, expect to shell out around $30,000 to $40,000 if you want to be one of its proud owners. For the office that may be looking for an upgrade, and with a wall big enough to show the improvement, this could be a worthy investment. Sitting in the back of the meeting can be rough for anyone with bad eyesight, so the added pixel quality could definitely help out. Just remember to measure for the right amount of wall space before you decide to pull the trigger on this purchase.

Sony Debuts Two New Projector Series for SMB and Corporate Industries

Sony VPL-D100Sony has just debuted two new projector series for applications in small office, corporate or education environments. The new series include the new VPL-D100 series, which is specifically designed for the SMB industry and corporate markets, and the VPL-E200 series, which was designed with features that are specific to the education market.

Some of the more common features with these new projector series include an auto lamp dimming function, enabling the projector to intelligently detect if it is left on with a static signal being fed. If the projector detects a static signal, the lamp will dim to 30% of the original brightness at certain intervals that you can personally set. In addition to that, whenever a new signal is sent, the projector instantly returns to full brightness.

These new projectors also have an Auto Brightness Adjustment Function to help with unnecessary power consumption. This feature automatically adjusts the brightness of the lamp’s output depending on the brightness of the projected image. What this means is that if you are showing darker images that don’t require high brightness then the lamp will output less light.

All of the new projectors also come with an Eco Mode function that gives you the ability to switch between three brightness modes and also allows you to control the power consumption of the projector, increasing the overall life of the lamp and projector. What’s more is that by applying a new fine-tuned cooling system to reduce bulb clouding, Sony has also extended the lamp life to around 7,000 hours, depending on lamp mode, of course.

Standard features for the E200 series models include a 16W speaker, two RGB ports, HDMI, S-Video, RS-232C, RJ-45, microphone input and optional wireless capabilities. You can also perform remote control of multiple projectors which can also be accomplished by a wired LAN network, if the need arises. Wireless projection is also an option, though you will need the optional IFU-WLM3 wireless USB dongle if you want to connect wirelessly.

Both the VPL-DX120 and the VPL-DX140 are the first of Sony’s new D100 series targeted at the SMB industry and corporate market. They combine style and all the necessary features needed to survive in these strict markets and come standard with one RGB port, one HDMI port and one Video port. No word has been released on an actual release date or specific pricing for the new projectors.
