Part of the Sony SuperLite LCD mobile projector series, the VPL-ES2 model weighs 6 pounds, 3 ounces and packs into a small case for carry-on convenience. The projector incorporates new set-up features with a 1500 ANSI lumens picture to deliver presentations at sales meetings, training seminars, or in the executive boardroom.
Its multimedia connectivity -- including a video input -- also enables the VPL-ES2 to serve as a home entertainment source.
Focusing on ease of use, Sony's new "Auto Set-Up" buttons take the hassle out of set-up. The lens, tilt, input search, keystone, and pixel are automatically adjusted with a touch of a button. Component video input and six video modes give multiple options to connect to PCs, DVD players, game consoles, and more.
The VPL-ES2 incorporates technology from Sony's new QUALIA 004 projector's cooling system that helps to produce only 30 decibels of fan noise. This helps avoid distraction during presentations. Also, Sony's "off and go" feature allows the fan to continue to run after the power is turned off eliminating the wait for the projector to cool.
VPL-ES2 mobile projector will be available this month for about $1,100.
