What Sony say about the VPL-FH31

Packing the most advanced projector technologies into a “blend-in” design, the VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 are excellent choices for universities, corporates, museums and medical (DICOM) applications. Delivering a dramatic colour brightness of 4300 and 5200 lumens respectively and ultra high-quality images with WUXGA resolution, the projectors offer peace of mind operation, amazing installation flexibility and hassle-free maintenance in a stylish design that blends into any decor.
The maintenance cycles of the lamp and cleaning filters are synchronised and exceptionally long, which cuts maintenance time and cost. In addition, both projectors are designed to deliver a low total cost of ownership and include environmentally conscious features, thanks to their long-lasting lamp and low power consumption.

  • Warping Function - The image warping feature allows an 8 point (4 corners and 4 sides) image adjustment for convex or concave projected surfaces. Making adjustments is easy with the remote control and the on-screen operating menu.
  • Edge Blend - Multiple projectors have the ability to project an single seamless image onto a screen (wall) creating an exciting visual event or retail or corporate signage application.
  • Installation Advantages Lens Shift Functions - The VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 are equipped with horizontal and vertical lens shift functions for greater installation flexibility. Using this function, the position of the projected image can be moved vertically by up to 60% and horizontally from -32% through to +32%. Images can be easily adjusted to the desired settings during installation.
  • Low Power Consumption - The projectors offer remarkably low power consumption, allowing users to make significant savings on electricity expenses.
  • Excellent Throw Ratio Coverage for  Old Projector Replacement - The 1.6x zoom and 1.39 to 2.23 throw ratio standard lens enables installation flexibility when replacing an existing projector with the VPL-FH31 or VPL-FH36, there’s no need to change ceiling mount positions. For applications where more than a standard lens is needed, the projectors are compatible with the optional VPLL-Z1024PK and VPLL-Z1032PK accessory lenses designed for Sony’s current VPL-FX40 Series.
  • I/P Conversion and Film Mode - The video signal processing technology that Sony has incorporated in the projectors offer I/P conversion and 2-3 pull-down to generate highquality images with outstanding clarity.
  • 12-bit 3D Gamma Correction - The VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 incorporate 12-bit 3D Gamma Correction circuitry to perform highly accurate gamma correction, achieving smoother gradations and richer grey-scale. Picture-by-Picture With this feature, users can project two different images at the same time, greatly expanding creative possibilities and enabling exciting new applications.

About Conference Room

Buying a conference room sized projector is a large investment so it is important to find the best projector to suit your specific requirements. Here is a quick guide to getting the best conference room projector.

Firstly you hare a large audience so depending on how they are seated really depends on the brightness of the projector you are going to need. For instance if there are 200 people in 5 rows of 40 or 200 people in 20 rows of 10, clearly under the second example the people at the back of 20 rows are going to find it harder to see the image if the screen is too small. So you have to decide on your image size. Here are some sensible image sizes for certain audiences

3m - up to 100 people      4m - up to 200 People   5m - up to 300 people

Now you know your image size then you have to consider how far back you need to place the projector. A general rule of thumb on a standard lens projector is working on the basis of twice the distance back of the image width, so for the examples above the conference room projector would be placed 6m/8m/10m. If you need to be either further back or closer then you would probably have to buy what is known as a body only projector and then choose the additional lens which would give you the right throw ratio. This is a more expensive option as the additional lenses tend to be anything from £600-£2000. So it does make sense to try and have a set up for your conference that gives you the most cost effective solution. We really do suggest that buying on-line without having purchased a high end projector before might be better to ring one of our sales experts who will be able to save you money.

Depending on what you are intending to display and the quality you require does mean that there are several choices of resolution. If you are showing a basic Powerpoint presentation or spreadsheets then the choice would be either XGA or the wider version of XGA known as WXGA. If you are showing video content or HD content then 1080p which are full HD is popular as the quality is very good but they do tend not to have high lumens basically limited to 4000L so it may well be that it makes sense to go to the next resolution WUXGA which have more lumens.

Brightness which is measured as lumens is more important for a conference room projector than a standard projector because they will need to be bright. Nothing less than 4000L will do but again this is a specialised requirement and you should ask for help.

We have found that the "5 Series" of Infocus offer probably the best value and other good conference room projector brands are Panasonic & NEC as they both have a large range to choose from. If you want the WUXGA resolution then Canon are the best choice but they a bit pricey for most budgets. At the bottom of each page there is a more detailed guide about what to look for on a projector.

ABOUT JUST PROJECTORS

We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best.
