The VPL-SW235 short throw projector from Sony has a number of features to present high quality images while keeping low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership.) This includes brightness of 3000 lumens, so images can be clearly seen even in a bright room. Constant Brightness function extends the brightness of the projector over a long period of time. While energy-efficient technologies extend lamp replacement time to 10000 hours (in Low mode). The projector also needs only 79cm/2.59 ft to display a large 80-inch image on the screen, which fits perfectly in front of a white board leaving plenty of space. With the fuss-free installation and achievement of less glares or shadows during presentation, the short throw projector offers excellent usability.
