Product Specifications

The VPL-CX5 is one of the latest additions to the ranks of high-quality Sony projectors, and is ideal for handling presentations when you are always on the move. Compact and light enough to be easily carried, the VPL-CX5 projector is an excellent choice. The VPL-CX5 provides a brightness of 2000 ANSI lumens, XGA (1204 X 768) resolution and a full range of functions. The VPL-CX5 meets the demands of the road and in the boardroom. The VPL-CX5 adopts Sony original virtual light system with the all-new super high aperture liquid crystal panel and newly developed bright 165W UHP lamp. The all-new elliptical reflector with ultra smooth surface combined with a concave lens enables very small light source and accomplish very high light collection efficiency. This provides the audience with a clear, crisp and bright image every time.
