The Sony VPL-EW130 WXGA Projector is priced like an entry level projector but one look at its features and specs and you’ll agree that’s it’s anything but. This is a full-featured, 3000 lumen, 2600:1 contrast ratio projector. Its 0.59" 3LCD imaging panels (the parts that create the image) deliver sharp, bright images with superior detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range deliver incredible detail to every image displayed by the VPL-EW130.
If we wanted to add a descriptor to the VPL-EW130’s name, a good one might be eco (economy). This is a projector that will keep saving you money after the initial purchase. Savings start with the light source. Sony has employed a projected life of 6000 hours in economy mode, which is synchronized with the long-lasting filter so that both are replaced at the same time. This saves precious minutes of downtime during feature films or presentations. All which can be accomplished with the push of a button.
The VPL-EW130 also has the international credentials you’ve come to expect in more expensive projectors. It’s got a world-ready 100 to 240 volt 50/60Hz power supply. It can handle NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL-60 and SECAM video signals.
Lastly, 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.
