Brilliant colour performance with high resolution lens
The VPL-C200 Series projectors adopt a 3LCD projection system incorporating three LCD panels. This system
enables each projector to present bright and natural images. By combining an advanced generation of
inorganic LCD panels that utilise Sony’s BrightEra™ technology with a 3LCD projection system, the VPL-C200
Series projectors offer high picture quality and brightness. The VPL-C200 Series projectors incorporate a high-
resolution lens known as the Advanced Crisp Focus (ACF) lens. Its large diameter and fine pitch ensure crisp
12-bit 3D gamma correction and dynamic detail enhancer
The VPL-C200 Series projectors incorporate 12-bit 3D gamma correction circuitry to perform highly accurate
gamma correction, achieving smoother gradations and a richer grey scale. The dynamic detail enhancer
generates optimised images depending on the type of input signal through the interlace-to-progressive
The VPL-C200 Series projectors are equipped with a High-Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI), which is
the latest standard for digitally connecting to high-definition (HD) devices.
Vertical/horizontal keystone distortion and advanced geometric correction
With these projectors, keystone distortion of vertically up to +/- 30 degrees and horizontally up to +/- 20
degrees can be digitally corrected via the on-screen operation menu and/or the Remote Commander™ unit.
This enables detailed images to be projected with their correct geometry, even when installation space is
limited. Advanced geometric correction is useful when an offset projection is necessary. Each corner and side
can be grabbed and fit squarely to the desired position.
Convenient, simple projector replacement
The standard 1.5x zoom lens enables installation flexibility when replacing an existing projector with the VPL-
C200 Series projectors – there’s no need to change ceiling mount positions. The lens shift function allows
image position to be easily fine ‑ tuned vertically or horizontally.
The VPL-C200 Series projectors showcase a new low-profile chassis, so these projectors appear to blend into
the ceiling or wall on which they are mounted.
Long-lasting lamp and energy saving design
By incorporating a high-performance lamp and advanced lamp-control technology, the VPL-C200 Series
projectors deliver an extremely long lamp replacement time of up to 5,000 hours (approximate recommended
period, in low mode). The VPL-C200 Series projectors offer remarkably low power consumption, allowing
users to help save on their electricity expenses. With a single push of the ECO MODE key on either the
projector or the supplied Remote Commander unit, users can select an energy-saving setting from the ECO
Lamp and filter synchronised maintenance
The expected lamp maintenance time for each model can reach up to 5,000 hours* depending on the selected
lamp mode, and dust filters require the same maintenance interval. Synchronising the timing of lamp and filter
maintenance enables users to reduce the numbers of “ladder climbs” for maintenance.
Auto mode (auto brightness adjustment function) and lamp dimming function
The brightness of the lamp’s output is automatically adjusted depending on the brightness of the projected
image, to avoid unnecessary power consumption. When showing darker images that don’t require high
brightness, lamp output decreases. The VPL-C200 Series projectors are equipped with a lamp dimming
function. After 10 seconds of a static signal feed, the lamp dims by approximately 15%, which is hardly
noticeable. If one of these projectors is left powered on while not in use, after a set period of time it will
automatically detect no change of signal input and will dim the lamp to as low as approximately 30% of
original brightness to significantly reduce energy consumption.
The VPL-C200 Series projectors can temporarily disable video signal output. This function can be easily
operated with just the touch of a button on the supplied Remote Commander unit. In addition, this function
allows blank image projection with low power consumption using lamp control technology.
