Electronics giant, Sony has expanded its line of 3LCD business projectors with two new updated models.

The VPL-FX500L boasts the widest lens shift of any model in its class and is capable of delivering 7,000 lumens of Colour Light Output. This makes it ideally suitable for use in large-screen applications such as university lecture halls and corporate auditoriums.

Its stablemate, the VPL-FX30, provides 4,200 lumens of Colour Light Output and is equipped with 1.6x standard zoom lens for flexible installation, ideal for middle sized lecture halls or meeting rooms.

The VPL-FX500L’s Twin Lamp System provides fail-safe and economical operation and can output a total of 7,000 lumens with just one lamp. This is topped up, however, by a second lamp is built-in to provide automatic back-up should the primary lamp fail.

The two lamps are alternatively used, allowing the total expected lamp life to total up to approximately 8,000 hours.
To tackle areas where dust is a problem, both projectors also feature a completely new airflow design called Quad Filter System which uses only one in-take and out-take air filter. As a result, the projectors need to be cleaned less frequently, only when the lamp is replaced.
