Having taken a look at the ThemeScene HD82 we are very impressed with it . Faultless, natural, smooth images with great black levels. As with all projectors image is subjective and for us with found the out of the box colour setting slighlty saturated, a few tweaks in the menu settings ( which is extensive for user control) and we were happy. As with all ThemeScene/Optoma models they are naturally longer throw with a weak zoom range - but the HD82 has by far the best. If you are after a 1080p model andthe HD82 creates the size of image you are after - buy this projector you wont regret itWe would compare its black levels to that of the Epson EH-TW5000 which for us has one of the very best black reproductions on the market.

To make sure this projector is the right fit for you room

Sony logo
Flexible Orientation
The VPL-FX41 projector can be tilted 90 degrees upwards or downwards. This flexibility allows the projectors to be used in several different ways, including in a rear projection system.

Twin Stacking Capability
When applications require double the light output, the VPL-FX41 projector can be twin-stacked. Pictures from the two projectors are then matched using the Picture Shift function on each unit.

Direct Power On
Activating this function allows you to skip standby mode to power on the VPL-FX41 projector immediately. Direct Power On is ideal for large-scale facilities such as museums, auditoriums, and conference halls, with images ready for projection as soon as the circuit-breaker on the switchboard is turned on.

ID Function for Multi-Projector Installation
The VPL-FX41 projector has a built-in ID function, so each projector can be controlled independently from a single Remote Commander unit. For multi-projector installations in a single room, this feature is indispensable both during installation and operation.

Variety of Optional Lenses
The VPL-FX41 projector is supplied with a power lens as standard for most general applications. If a specific application requires a special lens, the VPL-FX41L is available. The lens is not included with these projectors, so any of four optional lens types can be selected. This flexibility allows the VPL-FX41L to be used for a number of applications - from long-distance projection in large auditoriums to short-distance rear-projection applications.

Easy Lamp Replacement and Filter Cleaning
When it's time to replace the lamp in the VPL-FX41 projector, a timely message appears clearly on the screen. The lamp is accessible from the side of the projector and the filters from the front, so lamp replacement and filter cleaning can be performed without uninstalling the projector.

Multitude of Inputs
The VPL-FX41 projector accepts a wide variety of input signals, including HDMI (the latest standard for digitally connecting to high-definition systems), component and composite video, S-Video (Y/C), and computer signals up to UXGA (fV: 60 Hz) - which expands the system-connection possibilities. The VPL-FX41 projector is equipped with five BNC connectors, so they can accept signals from sources such as workstations or professional video equipment, and these sources can be located far away from the projector because the interfaces support long-distance signal transmission.

Multi-Language OSD (On-Screen Display)
The OSD used for control of the VPL-FX41 projector is available in 16 languages: English, Dutch, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, Japanese, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Korean, Thai, and Arabic.

Password-Authentication System
This function makes it possible to prevent projection of a picture on the screen unless the required password is entered when the projector is turned on.

Picture Muting
The projector can temporarily disable the output of video signals. This function can be easily operated with just the touch of a button on the supplied Remote Commander unit.

High-Speed Image Transfer over IP Networks
Because the VPL-FX41 projector employs efficient compression and transmission techniques, they can receive and project images via IP networks for effective presentations from any networked PC. In fact, they can even handle animated Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.

Network Presentations Using Up To Five Projectors
Up to five VPL-FX41 projectors can be connected to a network, with the image from a single PC projected on each of them. This feature is ideal for both large venues and multiple rooms in which images have to be projected from various locations.

Network Presentations Almost Anywhere
By manually registering your PC's IP address to the VPL-FX41 projector, images can be projected not only across the country, but across the globe. This is ideal for applications such as distance learning and long-distance corporate communication.

Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment)
Smart APA (Auto Pixel Alignment) automatically sizes and adjusts a PC image display for optimum picture performance. This allows users to concentrate on their presentations, rather than time-consuming technical adjustments.
