Auto Start gets you presenting faster, while Quick Power Off saves time when you're in a hurry to the next meeting. Other Sony DX221 presenter-friendly features include grid line templates for neater written notes on a whiteboard, plus a timer that reminds speakers not to outstay their welcome.
Running costs are kept down by clever energy-saving features. Simplified maintenance and a long lamp replacement time of up to 10,000 hours helps reduce downtime in busy classrooms and offices.
Light, compact and stylish
Weighing less than 3kg, the space-saving VPL-DX221 is easy to carry between meeting rooms or classrooms.
Bright, clear images with maximum 2,800 lumens colour light output
The projector’s generous light output ensures that presentations are seen clearly in classrooms and meeting rooms.
XGA resolution for crisp presentations
XGA (1024 x 768) resolution gives lots of fine detail: useful for making presentations direct from a laptop or tablet.
3LCD BrightEra™ technology
The efficient 3LCD panel system is enhanced by advanced BrightEra™ technology by Sony. You’ll see the difference with impressively consistent, high resolution images and excellent reliability.
There's a choice of seven picture modes to fine-tune your image with any kind of content - including new Vivid mode for brighter-looking pictures that really stand out with more powerful, high-impact colour.
Gamma curve adjustment offers three settings for accurate tonal reproduction with rich, punchy colours and clear, easy-to-read text.
Simple screen mirroring
Add a Miracast-compatible dongle (not included) and project wirelessly from laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Get presenting faster
Auto Start detects signals from a connected HDMI or VGA source, turning on the projector lamp so you're all ready to start presenting.
Switch off and go
Quick Power Off shortens cool-down time to just 10 seconds after switch-off at the end of a presentation - saving time when you're in a hurry to the next meeting.
Speakers can keep an eye on their allocated presentation time, with a count-up or count-down timer in a corner of the screen.
Make neater notes
Pick from a choice of superimposed grid and ruled line templates to make neat handwriting and drawing easier when you're projecting onto a white board.
Up to 10,000 hours long-lasting lamp
The energy-efficient lamp driver contributes to an impressive lamp replacement interval of up to 6,000 hours (in Low brightness mode).
Reduced ownership costs
There's a range of energy-saving features to drive down total ownership costs. Auto Mode adjusts lamp brightness depending on picture content. Lamp Dimming progressively reduces brightness if no input's detected, or after a preset time. Touching the Blank button on the projector remote instantly mutes the picture when it's not needed.
Audio terminals allow direct connection of active speakers (not included) to suit the needs of any room.
Easy access, simple maintenance
Lamp access on the top panel of the vpl-dx221 projector simplifies lamp replacement, whether the projector's ceiling- or table-mounted. There's also a sliding air filter and detachable dust cover, for easy maintenance without having to remove the projector from its ceiling mount.
Choice of setting locks
As well as full lock mode, an additional mode allows temporary adjustment of picture settings: original settings are restored when the projector's restarted.
