Product Info

The VPL-EX455 is a modern and bright projector perfect for larger classrooms or meeting rooms. The XGA resolution is perfect for presentations and short video clips. If you are showing longer videos then we would recommend going to WXGA resolution as this is widescreen and your videos will not be stretched. However, for PowerPoint, XGA will still give you a sharp image.

Just Projectors review of the Sony VPL-EX455

The throw ratio is quite wide on the VPL-EX455, so in rooms where it is a little awkward to position the projector this projector can go relatively close and far away, giving you more flexibility than most other projectors. It has some great connectivity options including two in HDMI ports and VGA (x2). With so many inputs you can connect to multiple sources without swapping cables around.

There is also a USB input to allow you to present PC-free via a USB stick and a microphone input. At a bright 3600 lumens, the VPL-EX455 is incredibly bright for the price and is bright enough to cope in rooms where the lights need to be on all day, although the selection of picture modes will allow you to tailor the light output depending on the content you're showing. For example you would have it on a different mode for a video clip than you would for an excel spreadsheet. The 16W speaker built into the projector will provide plenty of sound. Overall, this is a robust and reliable projector that is bright and future proof. For more information, check out the PDF link on the left hand side.

 

What Sony say about the VPL-EX455

The VPL-EX455 projector is ideal for mid-sized classrooms and meeting rooms.

Quiet, compact and powerful, it delivers XGA images with 3,600 lumens colour light output and high 20,000:1 contrast ratio that can be seen clearly even in bright rooms and with larger projection screens, with Sony's 3LCD technology assuring natural, vivid colours. Image quality is further improved compared with previous models, with a new colour/white balance setting for crisp reproduction of on-screen text and a new 'Vivid' picture mode ensuring even richer, more vibrant colours.

The VPL-EX455 is an ideal partner for today's integrated AV/IT environments, expanding your connectivity options with dual HDMI ports and Direct USB Display connection. A convenient input label function makes life simpler, confirming on screen the name of connected devices.

Add the VPL-EX455 to a network and see presentations from up to four connected PC/Mac computers simultaneously. Slip in an optional Wi-Fi dongle and present directly wirelessly from laptops.

A range of energy-saving features plus up to 10,000 hours recommended lamp replacement time contribute to low ownership costs. Routine maintenance is quick and easy with a convenient rear lamp access feature.

  • Bright, clear images with maximum 3,600 lumens colour light output

    With a 3,600 lumen maximum light output (in high mode), the VPL-EX455 delivers crisp, high-contrast presentations that can be seen clearly in bright rooms or on larger screens. There’s a choice of three brightness modes to suit any environment, from bright daylight to darkened rooms.

    The efficient 3LCD panel system is enhanced by advanced BrightEra™ technology for impressively bright, consistent, high resolution images with excellent colour accuracy and impressive reliability.

  • XGA resolution

    XGA (1024 x 768) 4:3 display resolution gives plenty of crisp detail: ideal for making presentations direct from a laptop, mobile device or DVD player.

  • Powerful 16W audio

    The powerful built-in 16W speaker (mono) lets your audience hear video soundtracks with no need for additional amplification.

  • Energy efficient with long-lasting lamp life up to 10,000 hours

  • Advanced energy-saving features

    Advanced lamp technology enables a range of energy-saving features. Auto Light Dimming mode saves energy when the projector is left on without being used. Auto Picture Mode automatically adjusts light output to suit the projected scene. Touching a button on the remote mutes the picture temporarily, dramatically reducing power consumption.

  • USB media viewer

    Slip in a USB drive and display photos, images and graphics with no PC needed.

  • Dual HDMI inputs

    Two HDMI input terminals make it easy to connect HDMI-equipped devices like PCs and media streaming devices.

  • IP control sync for easy system expansion

    Control signals (power on/off, input select) from a master projector can be distributed over an IP network to additional 'sub' projectors.

  • USB Display function for easy one-cable PC connection

    Present pictures and audio* from a connected PC or Mac with a single USB cable - you don't even need to install a software driver. 
    * There may be a time lag between video and audio. For low-latency applications it is recommended to use projector's line-in or HDMI-in connection.

  • Customised input naming labels

    Define your own input labels like 'BD Player', 'PC' and 'Document Camera', making it easier to see on screen what devices are connected and being used.

  • Easy maintenance

    Convenient lamp access at the rear of the projector body makes lamp swaps simpler when the projector is hanging from a ceiling mount.

The resolution is indicated by "X" for XGA , "W" for WXGA. The ultra short throw Sony projectors all begin with "S". Sony's fixed installation projectors begin with "F". The higher the number the more lumens each projector has.

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.
