Sony is adding ultra-short throw capabilities to its line of business projectors with two new models perfect for education, training and corporate applications, as well as a range of other commercial uses.

The new models are the VPL-SW535 projector (WXGA resolution) and the VPL-SX535 projector (XGA resolution), with each delivering 3,000 lumens – which is among the brightest level offered by products in the ultra short-throw category.

Designed to add flexibility to classroom and business presentations, the new models can deliver a large image from a short distance. For example, an 80-inch image can be achieved with the projector located a very short distance from the screen (19 inches for the VPL-SW535; 23 inches for the VPL-SX535, the distance is defined as the distance between the center of the projection window and the screen).
