With a 0.46:1 throw ratio, theVPL-SW235 WXGA 3LCD Short Throw ProjectorfromSonyis optimized for classroom and other installations where the projector will be mounted close to the screen. A single lamp provides 3000 ANSI lumens color brightness in Bright Mode, and a three-chip LCD imaging device renders a 1280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution, 16:10 "widescreen" aspect ratio image. Through scaling the projector can also support a range of non-native resolutions, up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) for video and UXGA (1600 x 1200) for computer sources.
Multiple ports allow the VPL-SW235 to receive video and audio from a variety of sources, including computers, Blu-ray Disc and DVD players, document cameras, HDTV devices, and more. It features two VGA ports, an HDMI port, an S-video port, and a composite port. A VGA output mirrors the selected VGA input so that you can connect a computer monitor or pass the video along to a second downstream device without needing a distribution amplifier. There are also three analog audio inputs, two on 3.5mm mini jack connectors paired with the VGA inputs and one on stereo RCA that can service either the S-video or composite input. Audio can be output to amplified speakers or a sound system using a variable 3.5mm mini jack or using the projector's built-in 16-watt mono speaker.
For giving "PC Free" presentations, there is a USB type A male port that accepts FAT32-formatted media and supports a variety of still image formats. This port also allows you to install the optional IFU-WLM3 Wi-Fi module, available separately. A USB type B female port gives you another way of connecting the projector to computer, especially when an HDMI or VGA output is unavailable.
