Sony VPL-VW40

The Sony VPL-VW40 is a home cinema video projector measuring 15.55 x 6.83 x 18.56 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 24.25 pounds. The icy white-colored projector ships with a RM-PJVW60 backlit remote control (infrared) with 2 AA batteries and a lens cap.

The VPL-VW40 uses the SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) technology which is Sony’s implementation of the Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology. The projector also features a ARC-F (All Range Crisp Focus) lens, the Bravia digital video processing engine, and RCP (Real Color Processing).

The projector offers electronic zoom, Lens Shift and Focus adjustments for easier fine-tuning of pictures and a 65% (+/-) vertical and 6.7% (+/-) horizontal lens shift. The VPL-VW40 offers a projection image size ranging from 40 inches to 300 inches from a distance of 4 feet to up to 53 feet.

The VPL-VW40’s 200 watt lamp is a UHP (Ultra High Pressure) mercury arc lamp that is more efficient than typical projector lamps. It can output a brightness range of 9000 ANSI lumens and is rated to last 2000 hours (Full Power mode) and up to 3000 hours (Low Power mode). A contrast ratio of 15000:1 is achievable using Sony’s Advanced Iris technology.

The projector outputs videos as full HD 1080p resolution at an aspect ratio of 16:9. It also features progressive scanning and is compatible with 1080i, 720p, 575p, 575i and 480p digital video formats and PAL, NTSC and SECAM analog formats.

Video inputs offered by the VPL-VW40 include 2 HDMI ports, component video, composite video, VGA and S-Video. Other connectivity options include a RS232C port for compatible control devices, a 12-volt trigger for electric drop-down screens and a 10 BASE-T/100BASE-TX jack.

  • I am having difficulty setting up my vpl-vw40.

    The left side of the picture is cut off when viewing cable broadcasts and the entire picture is positioned to the left on the screen leaving the right side,about 2 feet, of the screen blank. Everything is fine viewing DVDs. I've used the lens alignment to line up the signal, but the picture is still to the left on the screen. When looking at the lens, it is not centered in the lens housing, I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem or not. the only way that I can get the full picture on the screen is to use normal mode through the wide mode selector. But even then the entire picture is left of the center of the screen. Also I cannot get my cable signal to fill the screen in a 16:9 ratio. Any suggestions?
